Job Aggregators- the new job boards??

Indeed has launched its "Indeed Resume" service, which allows candidates to upload their resumes. Job seekers can now create a resume from scratch or upload an existing resume in any common formats including Word, PDF, RTF, TXT, and HTML.

They already have a job post option, where employers can post their jobs, directly to Indeed.

What can follow next with them..
Search resumes on job aggregators?
Social network posting directly from aggregators?

Social networks, have already started competing with job boards, for job broadcasts and are well placed with larger populations in their networks. Employee referrals has also started to run on social networks. With Job aggregators, joining the competition, wondering, what can the job boards do to hold their own. Will they be at best restricted to niche boards? Will only sponsored job postings be charged, and others free? Will they have their own social networks?

Love these transformations!!

  1. That's a welcome and natural advancement for these job aggregators.

    Question: Most of these sites use major job boards like Monster / Careerbuilder as their primary source. If these sites are going independent on job posting and resumes - what will happen to their relationship with these biggies? Will they still allow to use feeds?

    Also - if job aggregators are going this way; what value addition they are providing? OR are they just becoming another job board?
