Job boards. For years pundits have proclaimed the death of job boards. Tell that to Indeed!

Hi, this is Peter Clayton. Job boards are very much alive — and on this Industry Insider edition of TotalPicture Media we’ll check in on the health of job boards with the job board doctor, Jeff Dicky-Chasins, a veteran of the job board publishing and e-learning industries. Jeff was the original marketing director for dice.com growing it from $7 million to $65+ million in three years. He has worked with over 550 job boards and HR-related sites over the past 20 years, in almost every sector, including finance, technology, education, health care, sales and marketing, energy, and specific geographic regions. If you’re at all involved in job boards or have attended TAtech, ERE, and other industry trade shows and conferences (remember them?) chances are you know Jeff and have seen him speak.

Jeff has just released the 2020 Global Recruiting Site Trends Survey Results, which brings him back to TotalPicture Media.
