Joe Stubblebine, the former CEO of JobCircle, probably summed me up best when he once described me as “the mad scientist of online recruiting“. It’s a badge I now wear with pride. I’m always experimenting with job boards and recruitment technology.
I am the former founder of AllCountyJobs.com LLC. I started the company in 1999 and built it up into a 20+ regional job board network until I successfully sold it in 2012. During that time I built the business into a six figure income and I finally cashed out in order to start my latest venture, CareerCloud. I have also held jobs in the Talent Acquisition field for various companies in Connecticut, so I have experience on both sides of the fence as both an HR vendor and a recruiter. This experience has given me a unique perspective on how the online recruiting marketplace functions.
I am also a webmaster, podcaster and author. In 2005 I published my first book for job hunters called ‘Secrets of the Job Hunt“. That book turned into a blog and eventually into a podcast. My podcasts have climbed the charts in iTunes (Business > Careers) and now receive over 2,000 downloads per day under the banner, CareerCloud Radio.
I’ve also started & sold many job sites like Green Job Spider, the niche job search engine and innovative jobcast services such as Jobs in Pods: the only podcast where real employers talk about their jobs and tell you what its like to work there.
As you can tell, I’m very passionate about career sites, I guess its in my blood. Even when I was working for ‘the man‘ in the mid 90’s I was moonlighting as a resume writer. My general background is in web design, so it was probably inevitable that I would end up creating a job board.
A few years ago I started Job Boarders the first ever online community for job board professionals. People started contacting me, asking for advice about running their own sites. I began consulting and made a name for myself as an expert. In 2010, I sold that community to the founder of RecruitingBlogs.com. Almost immediately afterwards, I got the idea to create MAKING MONEY WITH JOB BOARDS. Now anyone who needs my advice can follow my words of wisdom through this site. And you can also hire me.
Each week I publish new items about whats happening in the job board world including HR technology news and tools. I save my best posts for premium members only. The blog now features over 6 years of job board content.
