How job boards actually work 🧐
Human resource technology has become much more complicated over the past ten years. While the technology has made it much easier to track and organize information for recruiters and employers it has also created issues. The complexity new software introduced to the job market has made it more confusing than ever to apply to job listings and find quality candidates. Let's break it down.
The image above does a nice job of representing the multiple touch points a job listing can have. The image shows us that when a job is posted from an employer it gets spread across many websites in order to find candidates. USA.jobs is one of those websites. This process is call job distribution.
Job Distribution - The process of sending job listings to website publishers to generate traffic for the job listings.
Through this process job boards have found ways to monetize job listings beyond the traditional method of sending job seekers traffic to an available job listing. Many job boards will use data collection techniques to gather personally identifiable information from job seekers and sell it to a third party.
Third Party - a person or group besides the two primarily involved in a situation.
A common third party could be an insurance provider. They have a wide range of potential clients and would be looking for emails, phone numbers, and names of people they could market to.
Many of the job boards that you utilize today use these techniques.
USA jobs does not sell collected personally identifiable information from job seekers or employers to third parties. 😎👍
Why traditional Job Boards hurt your effort
The method of job distribution is a good thing when done correctly. It allows employers to get more potential candidate eyes on their job listings quickly. It also benefits job seekers, if the job boards that they usually visit participates in job distribution (they probably do :) then they will see new listings as they become available.
The issues start to arise as job boards that collect the jobs start to manipulate the job postings and sell users data.
How it hurts the job seeker
When job boards start to manipulate job postings without the authorization of the employer, information can be skewed or blatantly incorrect. In addition to causing confusion for everyone involved in the hiring process it can also lead to scam websites that utilize bad agent techniques to collect and sell collected data. Job seekers provide many pieces of personally identifiable information when creating user profiles or sign up for email alerts.
How it hurts the hiring organization
The hiring organization now has job postings that are incorrect. It can go as far as positions never existing at a company, despite their being an active job listing on job boards. Through falsification, positions are distributed to job boards and cause many issues. This often wastes significant time and money for the company as several departments including human resources and legal must be involved to resolve and remove the false job posting.
