Recruiters, your Job Board is going to eat you!

I have verbalised strong views on job boards over the years. An important part of the candidate acquisition mix, sure, but also increasingly becoming ineffective, geared only to active job-seekers, and in some cases price-gouging the very recruitment fraternity that allowed them to thrive in the first place. In Australia, Seek came onto the scene 17 years ago and I was one of their very first customers (when running Recruitment Solutions) in an era when many believed the internet was a fad, let alone online recruiting! But I have criticised Seek since, mostly as a result of some of their actions born out of their own success, and the near monopoly that created.
