The discussion surrounding social recruitment has been rife this
year, which has triggered the cry of ‘death of the job board’ in many
online recruitment circles. Social platforms are reporting record
numbers of users and we are hearing of more and more social success
stories from brands across the world. There’s no doubt about it,
social media has become vital to any job board business.
Whilst social media is an incredibly important part of today’s online
recruitment industry it is by no way going to prove itself as the job
board killer. In fact job boards and social platforms are existing in
a delicate ecosystem in which each one keeps the other thriving.
Social media platforms in their most stripped back form are content
sharing systems, job boards are simply providing these social
platforms with content to share.
