Job board resellers have emerged in recent years and have really disrupted the industry. For the past 20 years we have come to know companies like Monster, Reed and Jobserve and many other brands that are either specific to industries or general jobs which cater for every requirement.
However, there has been a real emergence of job board resellers offer a service to rival the traditional job boards.
When choosing your job board partner what are the reasons you should use a traditional job board over one of the new players in this market?
What is a job board?
A job board is a website that lists job vacancies. If you are a candidate, you will enjoy a feature-rich experience that allows you to filter by role, experience level, contract type, salary, etc.
If you are a recruiter, you will find free job boards and some that are paid for. All job board providers will help you manage the recruitment process. They can also help with things like CV writing and interview tips.
What is a job board reseller
A job board reseller acts like a media buyer where they buy large volumes of job ads with specific job boards. Due to their buying power, they get huge discounts which enable them to pass on the discount to the advertiser while distributing the ad across multiple job boards to maximise their audience.
The importance of resellers
Resellers play a crucial role by getting your ad more impressions from a relevant audience, which then converts into higher-quality applicants. Ads can appear on niche job boards, which is incredibly important when considering relevance and targeting candidates with industry specific skills or qualifications.
With Hiring People, you can post your job advert across multiple job boards for a flat fee. In one process, you can reach candidates visiting any of a hundred or more job boards. Achieving this level of exposure would take days of form filling on each job board, which simply isn’t an effective use of your time.
The latest technology and software works to help you manage the process. From automated replies to candidate filtering and creating a talent pool database, you have a greater level of control.
