I too have been bored! Not just here, but everywhere online. Too much noise, nonsense and dumbification. There has been a severe suckage situation for quite some time now across multiple venues. Maybe I'm a fool for saying that (more than handful of times) here, over there, or anywhere. Or, perhaps...?
As a regular contributor and commenter within the HR and recruiting blogging community, I was thrilled to be invited to join RecruitingBlogs’ 2014 Editorial Advisory Board. Yeah, I… Continue

When accepting those rapidly accumulating random LinkedIn connection invitations, I generally also scroll down to peruse my timeline. In doing so, I often notice plenty of job opportunities being posted. Some of these are blasted out by automation tools and others are manually added as a person's LI… Continue

It's that time to take a look at what's been happening in the job board industry over the past month. All I can say is - more than you might imagine. So let's get started:

As of May 13, 2013 there are one million trillion job boards. Alright, so maybe there aren’t that many, more like an approximate 40,000, but it can seem like it. With niche boards, location specific boards, the big… Continue

I have always thought that most staffing agencies could use their own job board. Today I discovered the Jobspring Partners website. Its a combination job board and company site that really showcases their open technology rec's.
Their design is top notch, and they use the homepage as the job board piece showcasing jobs in an easy to read format. The color scheme is simple and powerful. They make great use of their social… Continue

I recently attended the #TonyRobbins Business Mastery course at the Excel in London. It consisted of 4 days packed with information, tools and techniques on building and growing a business that is continually innovating and performing at its peak, and the best ways to create an exit plan for yourself; be this through creating a leadership team that will enable you to step away from the day to day running of the business, or the… Continue

You may want to rethink hitting that ‘sell’ button next to your LinkedIn shares. It appearsFacebook’s newest job search app has landed with an unceremonious thud in the recruiting space.
Last week the app launched with much fanfare, probably because Facebook has done little to nothing when it comes to creating job apps.…

For years I’ve been writing about what I see as the evolution of job boards – away from the traditional ‘job postings and resume’ model, and toward something more social, interactive, flexible, and useful to both candidates and employers. Many factors are … Continue

As noted in previous posts, I’ve been thinking lately about what makes a job board good – or not. Below are a few questions to that effect – and yes, some employment sites have these features, but most do not. Maybe there absent features you’ve wondered about?
- Voice input for search: Hey, if you’re…

Are these really the dog days of summer? Maybe not, judging from the number of new job sites I’m seeing. Granted, some of these have been around in alpha or beta for a while, some have been flying under the radar, and some are simply new to me – but there seems to be no letup in the volume of start-ups in the online recruiting sector.
This is great, in my opinion. Startups force established players to rethink how they do business. They… Continue

Looks like Facebook is working on a Job Board or is it?
Facebook Inc. (FB) is planning to launch its own job board later this summer, said people familiar with the matter. The board will aggregate the job postings of third-party providers, making them available for search by Facebook users.
While these knowledgeable people said the new effort doesn't yet signal that Facebook is making a full-blown… Continue

Almost every week I see another blog post or story about a trend, product, or development that will doom job boards. Let’s be honest – writing about the death of any institution, especially one used by millions of people worldwide, is a great way to gather eyeballs and readers.
But as I was considering my latest snarky… Continue

As I mentioned last week, the results are in from the 2012 Job Board Industry Survey. With over 190 responses from every category of site, including aggregators, general sites, niche boards, and networks, I believe that there is useful information for all. If you participated, you should… Continue

Good news for MBAs and those currently attending a top-ranked graduate business school: MBA hiring is up across the board.
