Job Boards are search engines that display job openings. Organizations and recruiters use job boards to post open positions and search resume databases. Workers use job boards to find new career opportunities and apply for jobs online. Job boards can offer employment opportunities across a wide range of sectors, while others are industry specific. For example, Sports, Healthcare, Entertainment, Restaurants, and Government are all sectors with industry-specific job boards. Some job boards utilize applicant tracking systems to help streamline the application process. In others, individual job postings redirect interested candidates to company websites to complete the application process.
Job Boards are an essential tool for job seekers and employers to connect. Understanding the reach and specialities of individual job boards will help ensure that you use them most efficiently and effectively, and ensure you maximize the chances you’ll find your next job.
