Reputation Management on the Job Boards

Finding the right job board is just as important as finding the right job, which is why reputable job boards are so important for recruiters and potential employees.

Whether it's finding a job board with dependable listings or one where employers can seek out ideal candidates, reputation management can help.

Here are just a few ways reputation management is having a positive influence on job boards:

Providing the Best Results

Besides being some of the largest job boards on the Internet, sites like Monster, Indeed, and Career Builder have something else in common: inconsistent search results. The last thing recruiters want is to find themselves lumped in with less-than-reputable job posts or worse, spam posts.

In addition, the last thing job seekers want is to sift through hundreds of generic job postings just to find one that's actually legitimate.

With reputation management, employers and employees alike can find job boards with the most reputable resources, which make the job posting and searching process more efficient.

Avoiding Outdated Listings

There's nothing worse for job seekers than taking the time to track down a job post and fill out an application only to find out the position has already been filled. Not only is this a waste of time for the site's visitors, it also makes the job board seem out of date and ineffective.

As the following article shows, a large part of any online job board's reputation is providing visitors with current postings. Reputation management for job boards can help optimize employment websites by eliminating outdated listings and providing visitors with the most up to date search results.

Cutting the Job Board Clutter

Although the larger job board sites suffer from it the most, even some niche job boards are plagued with clutter. This clutter comes in the form of paid advertisements, paid postings, and spam-like posts that don't actually lead to the job offerings that are represented in the posts.

Reputation management is looking to cut the job board clutter by monitoring job boards and addressing problematic postings.

By using information based on search results and customer feedback, reputation management services can better represent job boards that pride themselves in clutter-free postings and up to date offerings.

Benefits of Reputation Management

Businesses and job seekers alike benefit from reputation management regardless of whether it's through job boards or not.

Reputation management improves online job boards and hundreds of other websites in many different ways.

Among them:

• Customer Satisfaction - Reputation management provides websites the insight they need to improve customer satisfaction. By making sure customer feedback is monitored and the goods and services websites offer are legitimate, reputation management is helping to make the Internet a better place.

• Positive Perception - For those job boards that put quality first, reputation management services are helping to boost the online presence of sites that go above and beyond.

• Identify Drawbacks - Through constant monitoring, reputation management services can help job boards pinpoint negative practices as well as website drawbacks. This gives job board sites and other websites an opportunity to provide the best services possible.

When it comes to job boards, reputation management is helping to get the job done more efficiently.

This is from an interview with Kevin Walker of Indeedwhere he talks about reputation management.

What are some of the other best practices for marketing positions to find the best employees?

Taking ownership of your reputation as an employer is crucial. Studies show that 83% of potential employees care about a company’s reputation. A company’s reputation impacts their decision to apply for a position. Reviews by current and former employees are critically important in forming a potential employee’s opinion of your company, with 46% of job seekers citing reviews as important in making decisions.

Indeed offers employers the ability to have company pages where they can share information, and where past and present employees can leave reviews.  We take steps to confirm the reviews are from actual employees. Just like companies put effort into getting great reviews from customers, they should do the same with employees!
