    Which conferences should you attend - and why

    In this episode, Jeff Dickey-Chasins of JobBoardDoctor and Steven Rothberg of College Recruiter talk about which conferences a job board owner or employee should attend - and why. They explain the differences between a HR-focused conference and a job board-specific conference, and why both can be valuable. Some of the conferences discussed include: JobBoardsConnect, TAtech, RecBuzz, HRTech, SHRM, and RecFest. The two job board geeks agree - if there was ever a job board conference out there, they probably went to it - many times!

    How social media built this diversity job board's brand

    In this episode of JobBoardGeek, we talk to Elizabeth Willetts of InvestingInWomen, an U.K. job board focused on part-time and flexible work for moms.  Elizabeth was frustrated with employers that didn't support part-time positions, and so she built a site that focused on those companies that offered those types of jobs. Jeff Dickey-Chasins of JobBoardDoctor and Steven Rothberg of College Recruiter discover some of the challenges she faced (such as buggy software), and how she's managed a site with both high- and low-touch hiring solutions. Steven finds a listing by Indeed for their internal development team's white-label job product; Jeff feels like it's deja vu all over again.
