Is your employment site visible? Why not?

Remember 1999? For those of us in online recruiting, it was the year Monster ran an ad during the Superbowl. Overnight the job board went from sort-of well-known to very well known. Part of it was a memorable…

Want to write your own 'job boards are dead' article? Here's a handy guide...

I’ve been consulting in the job board industry since 2009 and active with job boards for much longer. In all that time, a particular type of article / blog post / etc. has persisted and even occasionally thrived: the ‘job boards are dead‘ article. In fact, these have been so persistent and…

Simple vs. complex: why the former wins

Have you tried applying for a job lately? If the employer is of any size, you will probably be directed into an applicant tracking system (ATS), where you will fill out many pages of questions. It can be a time-consuming process – and this is prior to actually applying for the specific job.

Is there a truly social job search service out there?

So perhaps you saw that LinkedIn has updated/upgraded its job search functionality? They sent me an email inviting me to give it a whirl, so I did – and it got me to thinking about social stuff and job search.
