The CareerXroads sources of hire study is out and once again job boards place in the top 3 behind referrals and company career sites. Job board market-share dropped off a little as more and more tools come on the scene to find talent. I didnt see any major trends in the study so its pretty much status quo. Download the whole report right here, its an interesting read.
So what new job boards/technology are coming on to the recruiting landscape? Well here are some that caught my eye recently.
* Collegefeed.com is a social platform to help students follow employers. [story on techcrunch]
* Strangely named Gozaik will launch soon as some kind of online resume platform.
* Visual job ads? Pinthejob.com hopes so.
* This aint your fathers job fair. Check out the Uncubed job fair [story on Pandodaily]
NOTE: thinking of starting your own job board? Try and evolve that idea into something new like the businesses above. Like all online businesses, job boards must evolve or risk being minimized by employers.
