The eternal question: what is a job board, really?
What exactly is a job board? Nowadays there are many sites that run from that description – after all, it’s quite unfashionable. Yet many HR and recruiting industry professional continue to use the term, so it seems worth exploring (notwithstanding my own moniker!).
