Are Job-Posting Sites Out of Date Already??

“What we are doing is what job boards did to newspapers,” says Ryan Caldwell, the CEO of EnticeLabs, the company behind TalentSeekr.

Seeking to find the highest-quality talent at the least cost, major companies are experimenting with a service that promotes employment vacancies through online ads. TalentSeekr is essentially an ad network for jobs. Companies fill out what jobs they are trying to fill in what locations, then TalentSeekr creats and tests multiple ads across the Web–social networks, blogs, forums, search engines–you name it. Based on the response rate and quality of the applicants that come through the ads, TalentSeekr optimizes the mix of at types. If more qualified applicants are coming i through LinkedIn than Facebook, it readjusts the mix.

There are several messages to young job seekers here. Classified newspaper ads for jobs died years ago. Now job boards are losing their appeal. LinkedIn and Twitter have gained in popularity. But it’s looking like just spending time online in your favorite websites could be valuable sources for employment opportunities.

Amazing how things change.  Adapt or die.  (Well, maybe not die, but be unemployed longer?)
