In 2018, there are so many social recruiters out there to compete with. Social recruiters would argue that the traditional Job Boards have passed their sell-by-date. Some think they should be confined to their time in history. As we move further and further into the digital age and watch social media slowly take over our lives, does this really mean the end for the simple job board?

Personally, we don’t think so here at LANDED. But they do have to change and adopt a model closer to the Indeed model. Like every evolution, some jobs boards will not survive, and others will undoubtedly adapt and thrive. There are already job sites that are already making changes to how they list their current opportunities and are offering companies more in the way of building an ‘employer brand’.

Mobile Devices

One of the reason’s for Indeed’s success is the simplicity of its website. Simple web-pages are much more mobile-friendly.  Because the 94% of job listings are viewed on a mobile device, this is critical. As early as 2014, Glassdoor reported that 9 out of 10 people surveyed said they would use a mobile device as part of job searching in the coming year.

A common mistake that many companies make is they expect switching from a traditional job board to social media will solve their recruitment woos. In reality, it really won’t. However, when the two mediums are used together, they can really develop a solid and winning recruitment strategy.

Having all your adverts pointed directly to one ATS will ensure you can easily track channel performance and measure your return on investments. It will also enable you to address the bottom end of the funnel which is applicant screening and selection.
