How to Create a Job Board - Specialization
(Page 3 of 4 )
There are a whole lot of jobs out there even when economic times seem tough. How could you possibly keep track of jobs in every city, in every state, in countries across the world? If the task of running a job board seems overwhelming, you may want to consider specializing in a single type of job. In online job boards, there are some markets which are more popular than others. Work at home moms, for instance, have many dedicated job boards which offer at-home job listings geared just to them. Freelance writers, graphic designers and other professionals often have their own job boards, too, which feature employment in their chosen fields.
If maintaining a job board sounds like too much work, consider narrowing the field and focusing on a single profession or type of professional. Where do your own interests lie? Focus on a field you know something about, and you can’t go wrong with specialization.
Maybe you could create and maintain a popular job board, after all. But how do you get started? Before you can list jobs for others to wade through, you have to first find the jobs to list. How do you find jobs for your job board?
Through other job boards, of course.
When you first start out with a job board, you’ll find you have very little to list unless you do some serious surfing. It’s okay for you to find jobs on free sites and then list these positions on your own job board, though this can be something of a time-consuming affair.
When your job board begins to see some traffic and you develop a reputation, you can start to collect your own job listings through your site’s efforts. Be sure to offer a link to a page for employers who would like to place ads on your board. Make this link easy to find and the form simple to fill out. Make it easy for employers to list available jobs on your site, and they will. This way, your site becomes a self-sufficient machine. Employers create their own ads, which in turn get listed on your site to draw tons of traffic your way.
