Job Boards: Does Anyone Get Hired?


Okay, okay, okay. Crap. I’ve started something.


Now that I’ve told The Ladders to suck it, people are talking. First this WSJ article. Then Eve gets into the action and knocks some job boards.

This discussion is very trendy.

Some of you have emailed me privately with your stories of success and failure with job boards. Many of you have sent me tweets and complained about The Ladders and other sites, too.

So I want to know — are there any good job boards out there?

  • Have you been hired from a job board?
  • Have you hired someone from a job board?
  • What are the major differences between these sites? Any of them better than the other?
  • Do you have a favorite boutique/niche job board that you use?

Do you guys have any love for these sites? Anyone? Anyone? Or do these sites universally suck?

And if job boards suck, why do HR people and job seekers use them?

Let’s hash this out once and for all, people. Then I want to move on to more productive discussions about trendier things like Sandra Bullock’s new bangs, the upcoming royal wedding, and Justin Bieber/Selena Gomez.

I call them Biebez.
