Is the traditional Job Board model broken?
Jobsite’s founders, who now run topEngineer believe that it is.
Did you know: 5 of the UK’s top Job Boards get between 76%-90% of their referral traffic from Indeed!
This means that Job Boards are fishing in the same pool of candidates, resulting in a huge amount of duplicate CVs being delivered by the top generalist job boards.
Furthermore, Job Boards send a huge quantity of applications, most of which are low quality. A report by the Aberdeen group found that:
Less than 10% of Job Board applicants match the qualifications from the job description
…and on top of this:
59% of recruiters said that they don’t have the “manpower or time” to sift through all of the submissions that they receive from Job Boards.
