HR Happy Hour - Episode 58 - 'Job Boards and the Future' Thursday August 12, 2010 8PM EDT So much has changed in the world of work and recruiting in the last five years. Global recession, rising unemployment in many countries, the maturation of social networks as a viable platform for job advertising and candidate sourcing, and oh yeah, an every three month or so prediction from someone that 'the big job boards are dead'. Despite all the turmoil and change, the big job boards are still around, and most of them are not simply sitting still, rather they have come to realize that innovation, adaptation, and flexibility are absolute requirements for survival in a world of reduced hiring, shrinking HR budgets, and the increasingly popular notion in many companies that big job boards are no longer needed, when direct access to candidates via social networks has never been easier. This week on the HR Happy Hour show we welcome Tom Silver, SVP of Dice.com, the leading job board for IT and other technical positions. You would be hard pressed to find an experienced IT worker that has not spent significant time in the last 10 years trolling Dice. Tom will share with us his insights on the world of the big job board today, what Dice.com sees as the major challenges in recruiting highly skilled workers today, and some of the new products and services Dice is rolling out in response to the dawn of social recruiting. An insider's view into the big job board scene - it should be an interesting show and I hope you can join us.
