Job boards are no longer working. In the words of a former professor of mine that headed Signals Intelligence at the National Security Agency, job boards are a perfect example of the increasing problem of “signals versus noise.” In the Information Age, we are suffering more and more from too much information (indigestion) versus too little (undernourished). With job boards placing your resume into a large and ever-increasing database, it is harder for recruiters and hiring managers to find the “signals” (the right candidate) among all the noise (the thousands of applications we’re not looking for). Want to stand out? Job Boards are probably not your best bet.
