A brief history of job boards (infographic)

This isn’t complete by any means, but thanks to John Sumser, Eric Shannon, Wikipedia, Chris Russell, and others, it covers the basics (I hope!). Amazing how far we’ve come in 22 years!

Wasn't monster.com originally monsterboard and was geared towards college students? Or was it jobtrak and them Monster took over? I can't remember.

It was actually JobTrak; Monster acquired it (my infographic is wrong, fyi) and rebranded. Monster orginally called itself The Monster Board, though.

I'm rather surprised LinkedIn isn't mentioned, or am I missing something?

Wait - is LinkedIn a job board?? :-)

Its not a job-board in the traditional sense, but there are loads of jobs on it, and its the biggest thing to effect recruiting in decades, so I think it warrants inclusion!

I'd suggest I'm not telling you anything you don't know here..

Nick - actually, I revised the infographic last week to include LI and make a few other additions/changes. You can find the revised version on my blog: infographic
