What is a job board?

A job board is similar to a virtual notice board through which recruiters tell their prospective candidates about the open positions they can apply for. It’s a website full of advertisements to open positions - candidates can filter, search and apply to the jobs that appeal to them. Some examples are Indeed, Glassdoor, ZipRecruiter, and LinkedIn!

Benefits of using a job board for candidate sourcing

Access huge pools of talent

The first step to finding great candidates is being able to tell them about an open opportunity in your organization. Job boards empower recruiters to do just that - they can showcase open positions for thousands of job seekers, in minutes. And sit back as applications flow in!

Get your story heard - Branding!

Some job boards like Glassdoor give you the opportunity to tell candidates your stories! It could be about your mission, your people or culture, growth opportunities you offer, or just about anything that helps you tell your applicants why and who should apply for jobs with your company.

Find niche talent 

Not everyone goes to every party! However, going to the right one, can help you meet the right people. There are niche job boards that help you find the right people, quickly. For example, AngelList is great for finding talent interested in startups, StackOverflow for tech jobs, and so on.

Hack to post to multiple job boards at once

To find the best talent, you’ll most often need to spread your nets across many job boards. That’s not going to be easy if you don’t do it the right way. Imagine having to switch between nine job boards to just keep a tab on what’s happening. What happens if you want to add another skill to the JD you posted, go back and manually edit it across each job board? And then there’s managing candidates - keeping track of the conversation, responding on time, all this, while being amazing at building a rapport with candidates across nine planets, okay not planets, just job boards.

The easiest way to post to multiple job boards with the least effort and time is through Freshteam. Don’t believe me, Check out the screenshot on the right!
