If ‘numbers’ is a yardstick, Australia is currently witnessing a ‘golden age’ of Job board activity. Our report lists 236 job boards in operation, with new players introduced on a regular basis. The job board tapestry is colourful, and every conceivable niche – geographic, regional, professional, job type and industry sector – is represented by one or more job board. A declining print classifieds market, the easy availability of technology, the continuing demands by employers to reach new pockets of audiences is fuelling the growth. In spite of the existence of alternatives, job boards continues to offer a cost-effective solution, and remains a preferred channel to reach out to talent.
The report also navigates the Australian recruitment technology landscape, and registers more than 40 national and international recruitment technology providers, signalling the breadth and variety of solutions available to employers and the recruitment industry. It is likely that the number of vendors are higher, given that many international players offer their solutions as an ASP model.
The Job Board Report 2009 is available for FREE download here (No registration required….yay!).
