Advertising jobs online is vital in keeping up with jobseeker trends. The growing number of specialist recruitment websites is indicative of this. Industry specific recruitment sites are seeking to provide a service that attracts high quality applicants for specialist vacancies. In the current economic climate the battle is on to secure high quality employers and top rankings in search engines to secure applicants for jobs.
Comparing online marketing sites from a jobseeker’s perspective should be the main priority of recruiters, paying attention to ease of use and the type of jobs on offer. As a recruiter you should be looking for an online recruitment site that ranks highly on search engines for the type of position you are looking to fill. This is a sure way to find quality applicants.
Make sure to advertise your vacancy with an online recruitment site that specialises in a specific industry, and allows jobseekers to browse for jobs by location. There are recruitment sites specialising in all industries, from marketing to aviation jobs. Advertising a position with a generalist recruitment site might get you more applicants, but the quality of the applications could drop due to the broader pool of jobseekers.
Market ups and downs
The online recruitment market reflects the state of the economy, since it shows the number of vacancies being advertised and the number of jobseekers looking to claim the available positions. Naturally there are social factors which also affect the market, such a holiday seasons. It is generally the case that jobseekers are at their most active in the new year, looking for more lucrative contracts after bagging their Christmas bonus. For this reason the specialist online recruitment websites often look to push more aggressively for market share over December, January and February.
