FEAT“How Commercials Work”   Indeed UK - YouTube

Remember when LinkedIn used to say it wasn't a job board? Oh, wait - I guess they still do. Yet if you ask a room of HR professionals that question, the answer is crystal clear: "Of course LinkedIn is a job board!" Well, I would argue that Indeed is going through something similar.

This study asked about how job boards really use aggregators, which ones they actually use, and what their plans were for future use.

2014 Aggregator Usage survey

Take the 2014 Aggregator Usage Survey!

But recent developments (LinkedIn and Monster aggregating job postings) and the ascension of Indeed to the #1 job board spot got me thinking: how are job boards really using aggregators now? And which [...]

There is just nothing like late June in Orlando (unless perhaps you prefer mid-July): 95% humidity, temperatures hovering in the low 90s, and drenching thunderstorms with sheet lightning. Oh, and don't forget the tourists! So I was initially not so excited when I learned that the JobG8 Summit followed SHRM - in Orlando, in late [...]
