Job boards offer many benefits to businesses seeking to taking in help, as well as benefits to employees look for work. But how employers gauge the effectiveness of job boards is another matter. Here are some reasons why job boards may be the answer to your hiring needs, along with another look at why they may not be.
They Vet On Your Behalf
When you sign up with a respected and well-known job board, you can specify specifically what qualities you are looking for in the ideal candidate. Your HR department will then receive daily emails with candidates whose profiles match that description, based on the job boards algorithms. It’s akin to having a bus go around town picking up suitable applicants and bringing them back for your perusal. That’s pretty good service for the nominal fee of signing up for the job board service.
They Can Weed Out the Riff Raff
On your business settings page, you can pick and choose which qualities you don’t want to see in your job applicants. You can say, for example, that you won’t accept applications from candidates who don’t submit cover letters. This ensures that you receive only qualified applications from serious candidates.
Your Notice Will Be “Hand Delivered”
On the other end of things, job applicants who sign up for job boards will receive notification of your job postings in their inbox daily. This ensures that your job listing will be disseminated to the broadest possible base of qualified people in your area. This greatly improves the odds of your finding the perfect match for your job.
