There was a recent posting on the ERE Recruiting Network regarding the obsolescence of job boards.

Job Boards are not becoming obsolete. As a matter of fact it is the opposite. Job Boards, just like any other evolution, fall into a survival of the fittest game. As the industry becomes more & more competitive, the winners will be the ones that deliver results and offer the best value-added-service along with an affordable price point.

Job Boards are a by-product of the internet age just like the ERE Network on which this topic was raised. Instead of becoming obsolete they will improve.

I don't believe job boards will become obsolete. And, of course, any business worth their existence will continually improve. The question, in my opinion, is more about the actual business model of the pay-to-post job boards. That model is going to experience pressures from many angles... which it did not have to experience in past years. Employers and job seekers are becoming more and more savvy every day.

Things are changing out there. That is for sure. Obsolete... well, that's probably a bit extreme.
