Niche job boards in many industries will always remain strong and quite necessary due to the native sensitivities of specifying position details in high skilled fields. The catch all approach of advertising these types of openings often attracts the wrong type of candidates, and worse, misses the eyes of highly qualified ones. In no other industry is this more true than the medical industry. Every medical specialty has nuances that require accurate representation in an appropriate place. As a recruiter, if you are looking to fill Internal Medicine positions, your “Internist” opening may attract a lot of internship seeking college students, unless it’s posted on a medical site dedicated to IM physicians.
Job listings like these below, ensure that applicants found each posting for the right reasons.
I think niche employment centers will continue to provide value and outperform catch-all career websites.
