So what about those Indeed TV Ads?

Remember when LinkedIn used to say it wasn't a job board? Oh, wait - I guess they still do. Yet if you ask a room of HR professionals that question, the answer is crystal clear: "Of course LinkedIn is a job board!"

Well, I would argue that Indeed is going through something similar. Launched in 2004, the site for many years defined what a job aggregator was: a site that aggregated the majority of its jobs from job…
