London. Traffic jam on London’s Tower Bridge road, long line-up at the Royal Mint Court conference registration desk: The second Job Board Summit Europe kicked-off with a pre-conference reception and more than 170 delegates could warm up to what they like best: networking, communicating, exchanging ideas and opinions. The conference was hosted by Jobg8, founder of a job board global marketplace linking more than 4,700 international job boards aimed at delivering more qualified job applications to recruiter.
Louise Grant, jobg 8 CEO, sums up the current state of the job board s industry. „It seems that lots of other people both in our industry and in the investment community are equally as positive about the future and relevancy of job boards. Since our event last year we have seen consolidation and acquisition, Monster having taken themselves off the market, refocused and aquired a stake in Alma Media. Stepstone made key acquisitions in key vertical markets; Dice Inc. in the US acquired a number of verticals, plus the IT Job Board in the UK and US – and maybe we will see further acquisition and roll-up strategies.“
Jeff Dickey-Chasins AKA The Job Board Doctor warmed up the delegates offering a glimpse of his results of the 2013 Survey & Debate. He promised more insights related to the much discussed question in the job board industry: „Mobile devices, laptop – what are people doing on smart phones?“
