Hivebrite is a new community platform which just got $20 million in funding and they have a job board component built into the product. Pricing is unknown as they do not show it on site rather redirecting you to a demo request but this looks like an interesting platform.
According to the story in VentureBeat;
Customers can choose to activate Hivebrite’s job board, which helps members share and solicit opportunities from other members and allows access to more opportunities through third-party posting services. Users can upload their resume, create discussion threads around specific career development topics, and display projects, then let others contact them about jobs and internships.
iHire released their state of the job market report. “The U.S. job market held strong and steady in 2019,” said Steve Flook, President and CEO, iHire. “Although 2019 brought about 5% fewer postings across our platform than 2018, we saw little variances in the top hiring industries, desired candidate skills, and other data trends. This lack of change means 2020 will continue to be a candidate-driven market – requiring organizations to focus on building their employer brands and providing positive applicant experiences if they want to attract and retain qualified talent.”
Indeed announced the release of their new career advice section called “JobMarket”. It features career resources such as a forum, resume advice and offline events in a variety of cities.
Indeed Job Market’s digital hub will feature curated content from career experts, evidence-based job search tips and community support. In addition to resources geared specifically to job seekers, the digital hub will also have content for career counselors and workforce development staff.
To me this is an obvious attempt at expanding their content much like how players like The Muse have used to fuel traffic. The forum element also reminds me of how Jobcase has built their own online community. Indeed clearly wants their users to come to the site for reasons other than jobs. It’s a move they have to make given all the competition they now face.
