The pain and joy (?) of coding your own job board
In this episode of JobBoardGeek, Jeff Dickey-Chasins (JobBoardDoctor) and Steven Rothberg (College Recruiter) talk to Dom Jackman, of EscapeTheCity, an U.K.-based job board for folks who are trying to 'escape the rat race'. Dom gets into how and why the site got started, and digs into some of the unusual offerings they provided for candidates (including holiday trips and many live events. He also talks about building the site's code - line by line. Steven and Jeff puzzle over Snagajob's recent $65 million dollar loan, and - much to Jeff's surprise - Steven comes up with a reasonable explanation!
What is a B corp and why would a job board be one?
This episode of JobBoardGeek features host Jeff Dickey-Chasins and co-host Steven Rothberg talking to Mac Prichard, founder of Mac's List. This unusual job board is one of the few in the world that is a B corp. We find out what that is, plus how content has really made a difference for Mac's List. Steven and Jeff speculate on why Facebook dropped their Jobs offering everywhere but the U.S. and Canada (not Asia as Jeff mistakenly thinks!). Steven wonders what 'erudite' means.
Not another show about programmatic!! (Well...yes)
In this episode of JobBoardGeek , Jeff Dickey-Chasins goes BOGO and interviews his co-host, Steven Rothberg of College Recruiter - also known as a guy who lives and breathes programmatic job advertising. Steven delves into pay per click, pay per application, what programmatic actually is - and why a job board might use it (or not). Don't miss this chance to learn more than perhaps you cared to know about the world of programmatic advertising - and find out why employers are using it even when they don't realize they are!
How to make applying for a job less painful
JobBoardGeek dives into the murky and sometimes confounding world of candidate experience when we interview Alex Murphy of JobSync.io. His company hopes to solve the challenge of making a job application not too hard or too easy, but just right - and improving the situation for both the job seeker and employer. Jeff also marvels at the year in job boards - as does Steven. Both are dumbfounded at the amount of money spent and deals done.
The Eyes Have It: Finding candidates that are hard to see
JobBoardGeek talks to Brad McCorkle of Local Eyesite, a job board that focuses on the ophthalmology sector. Hosts Jeff Dickey-Chasins and Steven Rothberg learn how candidate assessments, scholarships, and yes, even an ATS, have helped Brad reach a very scarce group of candidates and employers. Jeff wonders what the pandemic has in store for the job board industry in 2022, and Steven weighs in on some of the challenges. Take a listen!
Online, offline - a job board doing whatever it takes to reach their audience
JobBoardGeek hosts Jeff Dickey-Chasins and Steven Rothberg talk about TextKernel's acquisition of Sovren, and then spend some time with Kathleen Smith of ClearedJobs.net. Kathleen talks about reaching candidates that were always in big demand - no matter what the employment market - and how her company uses multiple channels to reach them. This site defines the word 'resourceful'! Pick up some ideas and meet a super-interesting industry veteran in this episode.
