ens and college students to look at the future of job boards (if they are still called that). Doug mentioned the most important aspect, listening to your audience, job seekers. Rayanne mentioned another, well written content. Who shares crap? If it's sharable and likable, it gets play if not the message will never see the light of day.
Relevance means much more than just pertinent. It means usable and applicable to the overall discussion which is an ongoing sharing of information between jobseeker and employer. The job board that helps their customers convey that information/message (social, mobile, airplane sign over the beach) to an audience that will act upon it, will survive. Job postings are everywhere, and in most cases, worthless. Jobseekers' perception of employers that list jobs on job boards, is one of a big black hole and most employers have obliged in making this true.
People want and expect more. We all know networking from trusted sources including current employees produces results. Listen to your audience, share your story, become trusted, likable, instead of relying on a poorly written job description and employers will score big. The boards that enable its customers to do so, may just be the long term winners.
Just my thoughts - enjoy your day!…
