Sound familiar? 68% of recruiters have said they are dissatisfied with the job boards they are currently using to post open jobs and recruit talent to their organizations, based on a recent Glassdoor survey.
Personally I like job boards. I’ve mentioned this before but I think of job boards as the food court of the search for candidates. There are so many options from candidates to the job board itself. And job boards get tricky when you start to consider that there are almost as many job boards as there are social media networks. There’s almost every conceivable tint and hue in the employment spectrum. If it exists, there is a job board for it somewhere. Are you looking for ex-Military North Dakota natives who support the Chicago Bears? You want to check out www.NorthDakotaVets4ChiBears4Life.com. Well apparently their website is down currently but you get the idea…
And there are more coming each day. It can be difficult for recruiters to keep track of current and evolving options let alone evaluate the effectiveness of what they already have because bottom line, we just want to fill the job.
