Edmonton Evaluating Job Posting sites



There are a number of options open to employers for advertising open positions. While many still use the traditional newspapers for their Career Ads and classified ad postings in the weekend editions, more job postings are shifting to the Internet.

The value of Internet job postings varies widely, and not just the cost, but their effectiveness. Many of the leading Internet job sites are owned by major media players who price the postings competitively with their newspaper properties. Other sites are less expensive but often fail to attract enough attention, either because they are too industry-focused or poorly promoted (often tough to do if the local newspaper see them competing with their on-line property).How do you ensure you are getting the best overall value?

Here are a number of tips for evaluating and using Internet Job Posting web sites, and some features an Employer should look for in on-line recruiting
