Job boards are used by recruiters and companies to post open positions and search resume databases. Job seekers use job boards to find new career opportunities and apply for jobs online.
Some job boards are integrated with applicant tracking systems so the apply process is seamless. In other cases, candidates leave a job posting from a job board and are re-directed to a company’s career site to restart their search and apply process over.
Job boards are commonly referred to as a source to find “active job seekers” in comparison to using another source where the primary focus isn’t jobs.
