SimpleJobSite is a free new job board themeBy chrisr2 on May 8, 2018 | Comments Off on SimpleJobSite is a free new job board theme
SJS is a free job board template this is available for free from a UK based company.
I assume its a wordpress theme. They offer a “complete” version of it for $25 and hosting for about $4/month. The software appears to only offer Indeed as a backfill option.
The interface is nicely designed (you can view the demo here). I cannot attest to its functionality or reliability but its nice to see another inexpensive tool for job boarders.

A Job Board Project Plan TemplateBy chrisr2 on April 23, 2018 | Comments Off on A Job Board Project Plan Template
One of my clients has allowed me to write about the project plan she created for herself that is helping her get her job board off the ground. I thought it was a great template that others could follow to use in the first two years. I have uploaded it to Slideshare if you want a copy.
Her site is InspectorSearch.com a niche board that targets construction inspectors. She put her milestones into two phases and set goals for herself with specific, realistic numbers. Her main goal is to hit 500 profiles/resumes by end of month 6. Thus far she is on target to hit that mark.
There are no traffic goals but she has already gotten to about 1000 monthly visits despite being only a few months old. I told her that at the end of one year her goal should be to get to 10,000 monthly site visits. She can get there through aggressive content marketing, Google Jobs referral traffic and good email marketing.
I applauded her on a recent call for making this document because too few of my clients have actually gone this far to plan ahead. A good project plan helps you to strive for goals and helps you organize your job board launch and weekly/monthly tasks.
So use her template to create your own. Its a small step that can help make your site a big success.
Free Images for Your Blog ContentBy chrisr2 on April 17, 2018 | Comments Off on Free Images for Your Blog Content
If you are writing blog posts you should be adding images to that content in order to make them more visual/shareable on the web.
Good images cost money however. Sites like Shutterstock charge you. But there a a number of places to get free images. I just learned about Reshot which allows aspiring photographers to upload their images which anyone can use for free without any licensing restrictions.
Pexels is another one.
Unsplash is my 3rd pick.
News and Notes from Job Board WorldBy chrisr2 on April 10, 2018 | Comments Off on News and Notes from Job Board World
HealthcareSource, a leading provider of talent management solutions for the healthcare industry, today announced it has integrated Google Cloud Job Discovery to power its job search. Launched in September 2017, HealthcareSource Job Board℠ has significantly grown to feature over 60,000 jobs, addressing the full continuum of care.
“This is a significant milestone for both healthcare employers and job seekers who use our Job Board,” said J.P. Fingado, HealthcareSource President and Chief Executive Officer. “By integrating Google Cloud Job Discovery, we are improving the job board search for job seekers, resulting in increased engagement and likelihood to apply. For healthcare employers, this means their jobs are more likely to be discovered by the right candidates, enabling them to find and hire people who will deliver the highest quality of care. Adding this functionality to our existing healthcare-specific hiring tools and sponsorship opportunities makes the HealthcareSource Job Board a powerful option for hiring in this industry.”
Most job sites’ keyword search relies on Boolean logic, which often omits relevant jobs and overwhelms job seekers with irrelevant job listings. HealthcareSource Job Board features Cloud Job Discovery, providing healthcare organizations and job seekers access to Google’s advanced search and machine learning capabilities designed to better understand both job content and job seekers’ intent. Job seekers can access more relevant, targeted opportunities that meet their specific criteria, and employers are able to increase apply rates and accelerate candidate conversion.

Monster Exec Interviewed:
Monster rested on its laurels, and what started as a scrappy challenger brand in 1994 became large and lumbering.
“We let the competition pass us by,” said Beamer, who took the reins as chief marketing exec in November.
But Monster is ready to reclaim its spot with consumers who feel nostalgic for the brand. Beamer calls it “latent favorability.”
