‘The Demise of the Job Board’ seems to have become something of a ‘cause celeb’ in recruitment media circles. Just type ‘Job Boards are Dead’ into Google and you’ll get a wide variety of comments and articles on the subject. But why? The recent Zappos blog, “What?

The second speaker at European Job Board Summit 2013 was Lee Biggins, founder of leading UK job board CV Library and passionate believer in the KIS principle, Keep IT Simple…. and given the success Lee’s site has enjoyed over the last 10 years, who am I to disagree with him?
It is really a pleasure for me personally to have Isabella join us at the European Job Board Summit 2013. She comes from a job board background, Monster; and then went In-House at Yell and Harrods and was/is an “In-House Recruiting” evangelist. Today she works for the global RPO firm Alexander Mann Solutions and this gives her insight into every area of recruiting process and industry.
