Job Board Advertising – Why it’s important?

Look at the main job boards – both those specific in your industry and the major websites that everyone is familiar with. You’ll see they are all packed with vacancies. In other words, they remain popular. One of the main reasons for this is because they work.

Below we outline the benefits of using multiple job boards when recruiting. The main benefit, however, is advertising across multiple job boards remains one of the most effective ways of finding the right candidate.

Active Job Seekers

Job boards are good at finding the right candidate because job seekers use them. Think for a moment about the process an individual will go through when they decide they want another job. They’ll polish their CV and LinkedIn profile, they may do some research on recruitment agencies, and they will visit the careers pages of companies on their target list. The first thing many job seekers do, however, is visit job boards to see current opportunities.

Why? Job seekers use job boards because they are comprehensive. A search for a job role on one of the big job boards will return better results than an equivalent search on Google. Also, job boards have more vacancies than any recruitment agency in the country.

So, when a job seeker wants to see they widest possible range of potential opportunities, they turn to job boards. As a result, you need job board visibility when recruiting.
