  • Community + Job Board
    By on August 20, 2012 | Comments Off on Community + Job Board  Comments

    If you want to start a job board today you seriously need to think about starting something with more than just job listings.

    This is particularly true if you are entering into a highly competitive niche. I recently consulted for the folks who are starting HRanswerexhange.com. Its aim is to be a community site WITH jobs for HR professionals. Since there are already a number of sites that target HR jobs, these guys are taking the right track by focusing on building a community first.

    A community site will always be more valuable than a traditional job board. A great example is RigZone which Dice bought last year for something like $9-10 million. MediaBistro is another great example.

    So if you are working in a certain industry that lacks sites with a community focus think about starting one. You can use off the shelf software such as Ning to run the community side and job board software like Jobamatic or Jobtarget to run the jobs side by using a sub-domain (jobs.yoursitename.com). Its cheap and easy to start. This will allow you to concentrate on building the community which in turn can support a job board once you get some traction/users.

    Software provider JobTarget has introduced a new way for employers to gain exposure to job seekers. They call it the “Spotlight” option. Employers can now be given the option to pay an additional fee to shine a spotlight on their job once it’s posted on the career center. See their screenshot below.

    This is something I think more job boards should start doing. Products like this are excellent ways of increasing revenue. Sites like eBay and Flippa do it all the time so I think job boards can learn from these examples.
