London. If there was ever a question about the hot topic at the Job Board Summit Europe 2013 held December 4th to 5th in London, it was Mobile Recruiting in all variations.  Jobg8, the organiser of the conference, paid tribute to the technological advancement, trend or hype and put the topic bluntly in front of the audience, some 170 representative of job boards from France, South Africa, Hungary, Austria, Switzerland, Germany, Netherlands, USA and the UK.

David Martin, Co Founder of Pocket Recruit, presented his opinion in the talk on „The Power of Mobile“. He made it clear that the recruiting industry is undergoing a paradigm shift as more and more mobile devices such as tablets or smartphones are used to access the internet – any time – any place- any topic. As a consequence of the increased usage of mobile device pressure builds up to provide candidates in search of a job a good user experience when accessing a company career website or a job board to search for career opportunities.

Jobg8 Understands Job Boards

The Jobg8 marketplace is a unique service within the job board industry and addresses three key challenges facing job board operators today:

Job boards operate in a fragmented market of over 50,000 job boards from various countries. This makes it difficult for advertisers to know where to post jobs and for job seekers to know where to look for relevant positions.

Driving traffic to your job board can be expensive and includes no guarantee that the added traffic will yield the qualified applicants that your advertisers demand.

Although many boards can deliver clicks and „job views“, what is truly required is delivering qualified applicants to your advertisers.  Your advertisers would rather review a smaller list of qualified CVs, than a large number of unqualified applications.


Jobg8 has built the world’s largest job board network, today over 4,000 job boards use the network to deliver more response to their customers and more job postings to their job seeker audience.
