During our European Job Board Summit last December we had a panel debate on exactly this topic. It created a lot of debate about what a Job Board is and also the type of services it therefore can/should deliver.
From the audiences reaction it seemed that in the larger “Western” recruitment markets the Job Boards very much see themselves as online classified recruitment. Therefore providing those classic job board services: postings, CV database, banners/button and email marketing. However what was interesting was the response from those running Job Boards in smaller markets or niche sectors. There is a much wider range of services were being offered here.
