How can job boards even continue to exist? Because they connect job seekers and those who want to employ them. If a job board doesn’t do this simple task successfully, it eventually goes out of business.
But as any hiring manager, HR director, or recruiter knows, job boards are not the only solution. Why? Because the employment market is incredibly….random.
Think about it. If you’re a job seeker, you’re expected to know about the relevant job boards for your industry, the top recruiters specializing in your sector, the best social networks, the right Twitter feeds, the best company career sites to track, and you have to monitor these every day. That’s a lot of information to pull together in order to execute a comprehensive, focused job search.
