In today’s economy it can be hard for an employee to find a job and equally hard for an employer to find the right employees for their job openings. There are many options that an employer can use to find new employees and some work better than others.

Anant Goel, CEO at RKNet stated: There are many options that an employer can use to find new employees and some work better than others. Employers can put a help wanted sign in the window or post a help wanted ad in the newspapers. With so many cities without a newspaper these days, and with the readership on the decline, the internet has become one of the best ways for an employer to post help wanted ads and for employees to find these ads on-line.”

Job Board vs. Job Search Engine

Employers have many options and it’s important to understand the difference between a “Job Board” and a “Job Search Engine”.

It can be confusing, but it's a good idea to know where the employers should post their jobs to find the right candidates cost effectively in a smooth and efficient manner. In other words, it’s good to know where the candidates go to find listings online and where they are coming from.

Job Boards

A job board is a website which posts jobs supplied by employers. Employers typically pay a fee to the job board in exchange for the opportunity to list their jobs on the site. For example, Monster.com is the largest generic job board with postings across a broad range of industries.

Other more specialized, or niche oriented boards focus on a particular industry such as technology, financial, or healthcare jobs. Dice, for example, is the leading site for tech jobs.

Other niche boards cater to a segment of the job market like nursing jobs, entry level jobs, summer jobs, or internships.

With job boards, companies have purposely listed their open positions and often accept job applications directly on the job board.

Job Search Engines

Job search engines scour the web and aggregate job listings from job boards and employer websites. Indeed and SimplyHired are two of the most popular job search engines and they collect millions of listings on their platforms. LinkUp searches through the websites of small, medium and large employers without including input from job boards.

As a job seeker, you will find a wider variety of job postings on job search engines because they are listings from multiple sources. However, you may also have to look through duplicate listings and make sure the job vacancy is still available.

Job Boards vs. Job Search Engines

The debate can go-on forever. However, when posting jobs, or searching for jobs, it's important to use both job boards and job search engines, and a variety of sites, because no single site searches all job boards or employer sites.

According to comScore Media Metrix, the most visited job boards were Indeed, CareerBuilder, Monster.com, HotJobs, and Simply Hired.

Niche job boards like LeNurse.com are starting to play a bigger role in providing more targeted job openings [to job seekers] and candidates [to employers].
