As the job market gets more and more competitive, you need every edge you can get. A good candidate experience can give you that edge, and it starts the moment a potential candidate lands on your job listing—which is your only chance for a first impression. Job board software can also give candidates some insight into your company culture through your postings.
In this buyer's guide, we'll discuss the various features of job board software that can help human resources (HR) teams, recruiters and recruiting managers, as well as job listing websites reach the widest pool of candidates possible.
Here's what we'll cover:
Job board software provides the tools businesses need to build out a customized careers page to post openings and accept applications without the need for complex coding knowledge. From a custom careers page, candidates get a better view of the company culture, its offerings, partners, values and more, because it's an extension of the company's main website.
In addition, job board software can help you integrate your careers page and job postings with your social media accounts. This can help you attract younger workers, since the new generation of job seekers prefers applying for jobs via social media platforms, such as LinkedIn.
Though job board software vendors vary in the depth and breadth of their offerings, there are some common features you'll find in most systems:
|Application management||Stores applications in a single database. Use of keyword-based searches allows users to quickly narrow down the most relevant candidates for a job.|
|Job management||Manage jobs posted on various websites and job boards, descriptions currently in draft stage, the number of applicants for a job and more from a single dashboard.|
|Billing and invoicing||Allows job posting websites to manage payments from recruiters and employers who are posting jobs. Also helps internal HR teams manage payments to consultants, external job boards, headhunters etc.|
|Built-in applicant tracking system (ATS)||Helps recruiters manage applicants and narrow down the field by allowing them to easily rate and review candidates during various stages of hiring. This information is shared with all stakeholders and helps eliminate unqualified candidates early on.|
|Matching engine||Automates resume filtering saving recruiters time, as they can upload an ideal resume for a job and the software searches the application database for the closest matches.|
|Resume posting and job search||Helps candidates autofill application forms using data from other job boards or an uploaded resume. This also automates the process of searching resumes for recruiters.|

Job board software helps streamline recruiting by improving the initial stages of the hiring process. There are many solutions on the market, so it's important to match buyers with the right vendors.
Businesses that use job board software range from companies hiring people directly to job board websites where business can post their openings. Most buyers will fall into one of the following categories:
Job board software pricing primarily depends on the features you need. Specialized niche features such as API integration with third-party software and a dedicated account manager cost more. However, most software vendors provide a basic version or package to get you started. As your needs increase, you can upgrade your package with additional and/or more advanced features.
It's important to note that pricing is often based on number of admin users, job postings on external websites and level of customization required, as well as domains, or websites, where the software is used. There are two types of options for users:
There are pros and cons to each option.
When using the vendor's platform, you are often able to add your own logo and customize the platform according to your branding. One downside to this scenario is that your data is hosted by a third-party, which could potentially be a risk in cases of a data breach. Hosting your data on your own allows you to be in control of the encryption and security. However, many third-party cloud-based servers offer strong encryption. Be sure to ask software vendors you're considering about their data storage capabilities.
On the other hand, using a plug-in requires an already established setup on your end. You can add the code to your website and customize it to your liking. However, this requires at least some coding knowledge.
Job board software offers benefits for recruiters and also improves the candidate experience. Here are some of the key benefits for both applicants and hiring managers:
When you're looking for job board software, it's helpful to understand a few of the current events in this industry.

AI may take over recruiting. Gartner notes in the recent report, "Transform Talent Acquisition With Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning" (content available to Gartner clients) that artificial intelligence (AI) will be included in more than 50 percent of talent acquisition apps by 2020.
AI was also a big theme at the the HR Technology Conference and Expo, held in Las Vegas in October 2017, with many HR software vendors such as SAP SuccessFactors, Oracle, UltiPro and Infor launching AI/machine learning-based recruiting tools. These aim to remove hiring bias and improve matching functionality to get the best-suited candidates for a job.
