The new Sources of Hire study is out. You whats hot? Sourcing is. Referrals, company career sites and job boards were all down from last year. Read the article.
Job boards accounted for 15.1% last year.
CareerXroads puts out this study each year and foes a great job with it. I think the respondents are bigger fortune 500 type firms so if the results surprise you that could be why. I can tell that if you are a small business job boards are a much bigger source of hire. I’d suggest its more like 75% based on my own experience as a Talent Acquisition Manager.
Whats also interesting about this years report is that Linkedin is now classified as a job board which is more realistic than being just a social network.
