In the realm of online job advertising, companies now have two options to consider:

  1. Go direct and promote job listings on job boards, enter into individual job board contracts with each selected job board.
  2. Explore a new job advertising solution that allows companies to advertise across multiple job boards without committing to individual job board contracts.

Before making a decision as to which option suits your company, it is good to gain an understanding of:

Navigating the challenges of selecting the right job board

Key essentials to running a successful job advertising campaign.

To run a successful online job advertising campaign your online advert must be visible on all relevant job board platforms. Additionally, the candidate application process should be quick and simple to prevent candidate drop-offs. Ideally, you will benefit from an applicant tracking system to efficiently manage your advert responses and promptly communicate with applicants. This approach fosters a positive candidate experience and enhances your brand perception among job seekers in the market.

However, achieving these goals is no simple task, as it involves considering numerous moving parts and careful planning. Nonetheless, with the right job boards and tools in place, you can create a seamless and effective job advertising strategy that will attract top talent and strengthen your company’s position in the competitive job market.

Navigating the challenges of selecting the right job board

In the vast sea of job boards available, it becomes challenging to determine the most suitable job board to choose. Each job board aggressively promotes itself, presenting impressive statistics to persuade companies to sign up with them as their preferred platform. However, the complexity deepens as the job board that proves effective for recruiting human resources personnel may not be the ideal fit for filling finance or engineering positions. Additionally, job board contracts come with a hefty price tag, making it impractical to subscribe to all of them from a cost-effective standpoint.

Complicating matters further, candidates often register with only one job board due to the time-consuming registration process. Candidates prefer to search and apply for jobs on that specific job board because it streamlines the application process for them. As a result, it becomes challenging for companies to identify the job board on which the desired candidates they want to hire are registered.

In the end, a company faces the daunting task of selecting one job board, perhaps two, hoping that they’ve made the right choice and the job boards selected will have the most suitable audience to fill the bulk of their job vacancies.

The job board contract that is typically signed, is for an agreed-upon term, accompanied by a fixed number of job credits to use in that term. This introduces a new set of issues to consider. If, for any reason, the need to recruit diminishes during the agreed term, and the job board credits remain unused, they are lost entirely. This situation can be challenging for any company, as they have paid for a service they did not fully utilise or did not use at all. It becomes a tough pill to swallow, realising that the investment in the service did not yield the expected return or value.
