Programmatic Job Advertising and its potential to cross the European borders.

Programmatic Job advertising caused a lot of ink to flow since we first heard about 3 years ago. According to Kenneth Kulbok from LinkedIn, Programmatic Advertising is ‘buying digital advertising space automatically, with computers using data to decide which ads to buy and how much to pay for them’. Therefore Programmatic Job Advertising is the process of using marketing best practices and tools to build awareness about your opening position. Such methods are broadly used in the US and the UK and start spreading in the rest of the European Union.

What is Programmatic Job Advertising?

Programmatic Job Advertising is a new way to post job advertising that has been revolutionizing the talent acquisition domain for about three years. In fact it can be split in two different segments. One, the most used one, within the job-boards, and the other completely outside the job-board.

In fact this technology generates more efficiency by automating some of the manual process. It helps talent acquisition professionals to do what they aren’t capable of doing by themselves: make buying decision according live data and a pre-determined set of characteristics in a split second. In short they use the best marketing methods to target the segment of the market that could be interest by your job position. In order to do so they collect data about users and correlate it to find the profiles who would be more likely to click and apply to your job offer.

 

How does it Work and why does it work.

But clearly how does it work? Well Programmatic job advertising mostly runs on performance-based prices such as cost per click or cost per applicant. If you purchase this type of media you would only be charged if you received clicks or applicants. Therefore it is not sold on a contract-basis like other job posts since you only pay after you see the results. In fact it is sold via a “biding” system based on the demand and competition at a given price which will determine the price per click or the price per applicant.

The first way to do programmatic job advertising, as said above, is within the job-boards. Actually, we will use this cost per click or applicant to buy according to real time data and a set of characteristics, more or less spaces on different job boards.

The second way is outside the job-boards. That is to say that Instead of working with job boards, they will buy spaces, banners etc. in any website. Just as regular ads.

We can definitely say such technology can help companies easily optimize their spending and the results of their recruitment budgets by using real-time data.  Programmatic helps monitor what you want to buy per click or per applicant in a more proactive way and enlarge the scope of your campaign by reaching to jobseekers, or not (if you opt for the second way). This popular technology is mainly used by companies such as Appcast, Recreuitics, or golden Bees.

What does it mean for the future of HR field?

Programmatic job advertising is thriving, especially in the US and the UK. In fact recruitment industry experts predict that by 2020, 80% of all recruitment advertising will be based on programmatic campaigns using big data. Also, we have seen that, according to Zenith Optimedia, programmatic ad has been rising at a rate of 71% per year since 2012 in the world. This means that it went 5% of the expenditures in advertising in 2012 to 58% today. This rate is even higher for the leading countries that are the US (62% of the expenditure are programmatic advertising which represents $24 Billion) the UK ($3.3 billion) and China ($2.6 billion).

Given the changes programmatic brought to the advertising field, we cannot neglect the changes it will bring to the HR field. In fact it means that less people will be needed to recruitment marketing to do things that can be automated. Meanwhile we will need more people to understand data and use it to match the recruiting goals. This also means that companies will have an expert (internally or externally) to help them use this new technology. Someone who understands data and can translate budget and needs of the company into an effective strategy. And finally that the current technologies in programmatic job advertising will move from performance based advertising channels to technologies that can also automatically use credits companies have bought from non-performance based recruitment advertising channels. . But we cannot avoid talking about the possible limits of this trend.

The possible downsides

In fact, there are some important limits, we cannot work programmatic job advertising as we work programmatic buying for traditional ads. Usually algorithms process huge amount of data to define which ads should be placed where and when. This is made possible thanks to the equally huge amount of interesting data user leave behind them (gender, age,  interests, localization…) that can be correlated to  find a buyer profile. Meanwhile users don’t usually leave data behind them that may help predict whether they are engineers or a salesman.

Moreover some limits such as the massive number of people using ad-block software (software that will stop ads from showing up) could make it less interesting to us programmatic.

 In fact in France 34% of the population use an ad-block software. Worldwide, it’s more than 615 million of devices that are affected (15% of the Internet users)

Plus without the proper analytics programmatic job advertising isn’t worth it, we don’t know for sure where our ads will show up, and if the price per click is lower, it’s possible to end up with a numerous amount of irrelevant clicks.

To conclude

In the end it is not possible for now to say whether it is the best solution for quick, low-cost, efficient recruitment campaign since there are many grey areas. It would definitely improve the efficiency of recruitment if we were able to collect more relevant information about users, which is going to be more and more complicated in Europe given the new legislation (GDPR)

Finally we must not forget the strength of Job-boards. Even if programmatic job advertising seems tremendously fantastic on the paper, it is important to moderate. Programmatic job advertising outside the job-board will surpass traditional job-boards with difficulty since job-boards create more traffic by retargeting job offers and serve as important market places.

Top 10 Job Boards In Canada

On the Jobboardfinder blog this week we give you a quick breakdown of the top ten job boards for recruiters and job seekers in the Great White North (Canada). For international Job Seekers and Canadians alike, it’s a good time to work in Canada. Thanks to a strong economy and low unemployment, wages in the country have risen by 24% since 2007. However, with such a big country, how should one know where to begin their search? Forget the rest, we’ve done the hard work and picked the best!

For Recruiters, Canada’s geographic scale makes things even more complicated. Because Canada has a widely dispersed workforce spread out over various industries from region to region, a job board that works very well in the East might not work as well three time zones away in Vancouver. While there are some national generalist job boards that are excellent for reaching the masses, to find the top talent in specific markets and industries recruiters are going to have to look to specialist and regionalist job boards as well. This is compounded by the fact that Canada is at its lowest unemployment rate since 1976 meaning that competition for talent is fierce while job seekers have more options and greater bargaining power. See our list bellow to take the guess work out of recruitment advertising in Canada.

Best National Job Boards

1.Indeed

For both recruiters looking for Canadian talent and job seekers looking in Canada, Indeed.ca is the place to start. Boasting over 6.4 million visitors monthly and posting 10 thousand jobs per day, Indeed.ca has by far the most monthly visitors and job announcements giving job seekers and recruiters more choice than anywhere else.  Indeed.ca is different from other job boards in that they use a pay-per-performance model which gives recruiters greater control over their spending and results. Recruiters can post for free or they can pay to sponsor their ad so that it appears highlighted and in the top section of search results. The recruiter then only pays when their advert is clicked.  Because Indeed posts such a high volume of ads per day, ads that are not sponsored will quickly lose visibility as they fall further and further down the list of search results. For this reason, Job Board Finder recommends a

minimum pay per click budget of $10 per day you expect to keep the ad online. Recruiters can post ads and set their budget online with ease. Recruiters can alsopay for access to Indeed’s CV database.

Job seekers not only benefit from the quantity of job offers and choices but from an array of search options to help them quickly and easily find the positions that correspond to their career goals. Seekers can also sign up for a free notification service that sends candidates matching job offers as they are posted. Finally, like GlassDoor, Indeed has introduced a section for employees to leave employer reviews.

Languages: French and English

Paid: Free or set your own per-per-click budget to sponsor your advert

CV Database: Yes

2.Workpolis

Workopolis is one of the leading job boards in Canada. Last April, the Japanese Recruit Holdings Group (owners of the number #1 job board in the world, Indeed) acquired the platform. Hysayuki Idekoba, the CEO of Indeed, said: “Workopolis is a trusted brand and leading Canadian job site for both job seekers and employers”. The deal was closed at the end of last month and the aim is to expand outside the US and to provide a better experience for job seekers in Canada.

For now, the website offers more functionality for seekers than recruiters. The CV Database has been removed, as has the job posting function and they plan to make more operational changes in the platform. With this new partnership, jobs posted on indeed will automatically appear on Workopolis.

Workopolis was launched in 2000 and is a benchmark job board for recruiters and job seekers in Canada. It has more than 2,8 million visits every month and offers access to more than 300,000 job ads including ads from other websites. Recruiters will be happy to know that the Canadian site received 6.4 million views in April.

Job seekers can filter their search using the usual filters of province, job type and job source (direct employer/recruitment agency). Recent job searches are automatically saved and users can easily access them again. The blog section is great and is filled with podcasts, videos and many articles (both in French and English). Application process: Many options. Through the employer’s careers site, via social media (Linkedin) and email

Languages: French and English

Price: Free with pay-per-performance via indeed

CV Database: no

3.Job Bank

Job Bank is the Canadian Government’s job site. Users can look for government funded jobs, apprenticeships, federal government jobs, training courses and other job opportunities in a wide range of fields in both the private and public sectors. The filter “Employment Groups” helps specific groups such as seniors, students, disabled people, indigenous peoples and visible minorities find the most suitable offers.

The website has 3 million monthly visits and thousands of verified job offers.  It is very user-friendly and is filled with valuable content. Because it’s the government’s official website, there is plenty of information on salaries, immigration policies, skills, life in Canada, taxes and regulations, employment insurance, grants.

Recruiters can easily post adverts and have them distributed on other websites. Job Bank helps businesses by offering highly-beneficial data on market trends, tips for hiring and training, statistics, etc. However, employers need a Canada revenue agency number to post. Application process: candidates send their CVs directly to the employer by email

Languages: French and English

Paid: Free

CV Database: No

4.Monster Canada

Monster.ca is one of the leading generalist career websites in not only Canada but internationally. “From the web, to mobile, to social, Monster helps companies find people with customised solutions using the world’s most advanced technology to match

CV Database: Yes

5.Glassdoor Canada

Glassdoor is a job board that became famous internationally by allowing employees andprevious employees to rate employees and provide information about their experience with the company. It is a site that gets a lot of traffic from both recruiters and seekers alike. According to similar web Glassdoor.ca gets 4.4 million monthly views meaning that recruiters’ ads are likely to get a lot of exposure. On the other side of the coin, seekers looking for jobs can browse through over 30,000 positions in Toronto alone. And thanks to GlassDoor’s company reviews, candidates can avoid wasting time applying to and interviewing with companies they would rather not work for.

Recruiters can benefit from a free 7-day trial, after which posting a job costs significantly less than the competition with a single job slot starting at $199. Another great feature for job posters is the ability to change the job advert as they please. Thanks to great features like these Glassdoor claim to cost on average 30 percent less than traditional job boards.

Languages: French and English

Paid: Yes, starting at $199 CAD

CV Database: No

6.CareerBuilder.ca

The only reason Careerbuilder.ca comes in last on our list is due to low traffic at just over 300 thousand visitors per month. This is proportional to therelatively low number of job adverts at just under 8000 for the month of May 2018. Perhaps it is simply in the process of gaining recognition in an already saturated market for job boards. CareerBuilder is an international company with 20 years of experience. Their websites are well laid out and very intuitive to use for both recruiters and job seekers. Recruiters can bene

fit from a variety of services from quick and easy online job posting, a resume data base, applicant tracking systems, job distribution technology and even background checking and employee screening.

Languages: English and French

Paid: Yes, starting at $489 CAD with discounts up to 28% for 5 job spots

Best Regional and Specialist Job Boards

Bellow we have included one job board for each of Canada’s three principal population centres and job markets: #1 Toronto, Ontario #2 Montreal, Quebec #3 Vancouver, British Columbia.

7.Jobboom.com

If you need to hire in Quebec, Jobboom is the place to post your ads with over over 550,000 monthly visits. Job seekershave slightly less choice however as Jobboom had only just over 8000 job adverts as of May 2018. Technically Jobboom advertises jobs across Canada, however about 90% of their traffic and job adverts come from Quebec. The site is easy to use and their team offers quick and in-depth advice on their products. For recruiters, Jobboom is a little more expensive compared to some of the national generalists however you get good value for 

your money. One 30-day job slot costs $1000 CAD and gives you 7 days of banner ads on the main page, CV search, plus automatic email notifications to matching candidates. However, adverts are based on the city whereas other generalists will show your ad in searches all over the province. Apply is easy, you don’t even need an account. Simply click apply and upload your resume. The website is available in English and French but most adverts are in French.

Languages: English and French

Paid: Starting at $1000 CAD for a 30 day advert

CV database: Yes

8.TorontoJobs.ca

For hiring in and around Canada’s largest job market, Torontojobs.ca is an affordable job board place to start. However, it might be better for job seekers than recruiters. Toronto jobs has almost 100,000 job ads but only about 5000 visitors per month meaning that seekers have lots of choice and little competition but recruiters might not be reaching the cream of the crop. Languages: English only

Paid: Yes, prices start at $99 CAD for 1 posting, $249 CAD for 3, and $395 CAD for 5

CV database: No

9.WorkBC.ca

For international companies looking to recruit talent from BC but who do not have a Canada Revenue Agency number, Jobsbc.ca is the next best option. As a government website, workbc.ca provides a wealth of information on labour laws, education resources, and market information and statistics. To appl

y simply email companies directly.

Their customer service is highly reactive, posting adverts is easy to do online and affordable. Before posting, recruiters are presented with information such as the job boards target audience, their monthly visitors, and the demographic breakdown as well the percentage of visitors from tablet, mobile, and desktop.

6 easily avoided recruitment mistakes

It’s been a while but welcome back to the Jobboard Finder blog! Today we bring you an article to help you improve the recruitment process of your company. Read on to discover 6 easily avoided recruitment mistakes!

Employees are key to the future development and success of an organisation with HR departments having a crucial role in this regard. The recruitment process can often be discouragingtime-consuming and expensive. Finding the right person is extremely challenging, especially when there is a high turnover rate, a limited budget or a tight deadline.

Here are some tips to make the hiring process much more efficient:

https://www.jobboardfinder.com/news/6 easily avoided recruitment mistakes

1. Not looking within the company

There could already be someone within the organisation who is perfectly suited for the new vacancy. Not only does this immediately help you save time as the turnover of candidate is immediately much smaller. But Internal recruitment is also a cost-effective alternative. There are no extra costs for either interviewing external candidates, advertising the job or hiring an HR agency. In addition, not looking within your current employees could have an impact on the team’s morale.

https://www.jobboardfinder.com/news/6 easily avoided recruitment mistakes

2. Not good enough job description

Companies should clearly set out the skills, experience and qualifications required from the applicant. Writing an accurate job description might take up a lot of valuable time. Knowing what exactly the role entails will mean your company will have the upper hand and will have higher chances of succeeding in attracting the best fit for the offered post and your business.

3. Not making optimal use of recruiting tools available such as Jobboard Finder

Recruiting abroad often proves to be a nightmare with confusing websites, regulation measures, unclear requirements to post job offers and, of course, foreign languages. Even knowing which international job boards best fulfill your needs or are more appropriate for the desired post can be very difficult. Jobboard Finder provides valuable and useful information. It offers recruiters access to a centralised data base with information on job boards all across the world, making the recruitment process more accessible, cost-efficient and faster.

4. Being too strict with criteria

Coming across the perfect candidate who ticks all the boxes and perfectly fits the role rarely happens. It is important to not set standards too high, asking for long lists of qualities and placing too much emphasis on work experience.

Only a superhero will have these requirements. Trying to find a replica of the previous vacant is another mistake. Being too strict or narrow-minded might put off potential candidates who, if given the chance, would give their all. In conclusion, this play against you by limiting your hiring options.

https://www.jobboardfinder.com/news/6 easily avoided recruitment mistakes

5. Giving too much importance to the interview

When it comes to recruiting new candidates, interviews are always the main focus. Reference letters, CVs, emails, phone calls with referees, presence in social media and the so-called ‘Inbox Assessment’ will often receive less attention and sometimes even be overlooked. This leaves the recruiter to make a decision based solely on a formal conversation.

That is why there is, more and more, a trend to use the traditional interview and CV recruiting method in support with all of the above. This helps improve the selection process and make a better decision.

https://www.jobboardfinder.com/news/6 easily avoided recruitment mistakes

6. Rushing the hiring decision

Selecting the right person requires time to reflect and explore the options. A company may find itself under pressure to meet a deadline, suddenly having to fill in a new vacant position or having to work with a limited budget. This unables you to carefully evaluate every application.

This may lead to a ‘panic hire’ or a rushed decision that could make your business suffer the consequences. You might spend months training and investing many resources in the new employee just to realise you made a mistake and they are the wrong fit. Slow hiring will save you time and money in the the long run.

How to recruit in Egypt

With very recent political turmoil, the threat of terrorism and revolution, Egypt is not at the forefront for most when considering typical recruitment opportunities. But the country may still remain an interesting investment opportunity for foreign and multinational companies. Here is some more information about the job market and recruiting practices in Egypt.

Background

Egypt is a transcontinental nation, whose location is spread throughout northeast Africa and southwest Asia. Regarded as one of the “cradles of civilization“, Egypt is among the oldest nation-states in the world, although the current political is relatively young, dating back to independence from British rule in 1922.

Egypt is the most populated country in the Middle East, and the third most populous on the African continent, with around 95 million inhabitants as of 2017.

 

Sociopolitical situation

Egypt has recently faced many difficulties in terms of governance and spent much of the second half of the 20th Century engaged in active conflict. Although it continues to face challenges from terrorism, political unrest, and economic underdevelopment, the population is hopeful for the next generation that the situation will improve.

 

Current state of the job market

The largest industries in Egypt are textiles, food processing, tourism, chemicals and pharmaceuticals. Although tourism used to be a big pull and still much of the country relies on it, following terrorist attacks and fear tourism has greatly decreased.

The current unemployment rate in Egypt is 12.4%, and a survey by Bayt suggest that even those who are employed are dissatisfied, since salaries are not keeping pace with the rising cost of living. Informal employment is also widespread.

The cost of workers is estimated to be at around 15% of UK wages, although this low number may then reflect the quality of the workforce. However, Egypt is home to one of the continent’s most qualified workforces, with a relatively well-developed infrastructure. The law outlines a working day as eight hours, and a working week as forty-eight hours, and anything over this must be counted as paid overtime.

Employees looking to work in Egypt will need both a resident visa and a business visa. There is a huge young unemployed population so perhaps now is not the best time to search for a job in Egypt. However, if you are involved in sustainable agriculture or technology (Egypt has a fast-growing start-up culture), you may be in with a chance.

The huge market of nearly 100 million people, a young, tech-aware population and the rising use and spread of the internet have resulted in a tech transformation in Egypt.

Restrictions

Minimum wage is 1,200.00 Egyptian pounds (which converts to around £50 GBP per month).

Employees are entitled to annual paid leave of three weeks (twenty-one days) after a full year of service. This increases to one month (thirty days) after a decade of consecutive employment. The Egyptian government also provides thirteen paid public holidays per year.

Jobboard Finder’s top picks in Egypt

Wuzzuf is the country leader

Bayt is the most common multinational job board in the Middle East

Neuvoo is an international aggregator operating in 60+ countries including Egypt

OLX is similar to an Egyptian Craigslist

 

 

For both employers and job seekersJobboard Finder is the first decision-making tool for recruitment campaigns and job searches. By gathering tools and services that recruiters can use to search and compare employment websites from all over the world to find the best job search sites, it really is the best solution for recruitment needs.

How to recruit in Ireland

The Emerald Isle is often overlooked in favour of its larger neighbour the United Kingdom, but Ireland has more than enough to offer on its own. Its fluent English-speaking population, EU membership and a need for (and reliance on) Foreign Direct Investment make Ireland a very interesting option for recruiters and jobseekers alike. It is legitimate to wonder how to recruit in Ireland ?

Background

The country is located to the west of Great Britain, and south of Northern Ireland. It is surrounded by the Atlantic Ocean, Celtic Sea, Saint George’s Channel and the Irish Sea.

Historically, Ireland’s government structure as it stands today has been in its current form since 1949 when it was officially declared a republic following emancipation from the UK. Despite its troubled past and political instability, Ireland is currently blooming.

From the early 1990s until the recession in 2008, Ireland experienced a boom period of unpredented economic growth.

Ireland has a population of 4.76m and a per capita GDP of $72,632

State of the job market

Ireland has grown in prominence in recent years to make it a very attractive place to recruit. The economy is doing well and unemployment has been steadily decreasing too. Nearly 20,000 jobs were created in the first three months of 2017.

The unemployment rate is currently at 6%, which is considerably lower than in recent years (following the recession). This has been decreasing for years and is currently at its lowest rate in 9 years.

The largest industries in the country are pharmaceuticals, chemicals and computer hardware and software, with food and beverages also paying an important role in the Irish economy.

The sectors recruiting most currently are those of accountancy & finance, digital marketing and various areas of technology. Dublin in particular is also experiencing an increase in start-ups and entrepreneurship, and has become a tech hub, benefitting especially from London’s post-Brexit business loss.

Visa/ permits needed

Ireland is a part of the European Union, meaning residents from other member states have free movement access and can settle and work in the country with no need for a specific visa. Ireland is also a part of the European Economic Area, and uses the euro currency making the transition even easier.

Restrictions

The average annual salary in Ireland is €45,075, while monthly minimum wage is €1563.

Employers are required to compensate staff for Sunday working and pay them more than their normal daily pay.

The average Irish working week is 39 hours, while the legal maximum is 48 hours.

Best job boards in the Czech Republic

The Czech Republic is an increasingly popular opportunity for investment in recent years. Being a relatively young member of the EU (it joined in 2004), it represents an interesting international investment for recruitment.

Reports say that 2017 and 2018 trends suggest that the Czech job market will offer higher salaries, have more intense talent hunting, and create new opportunities for foreigners and generation 50+. It could be an interesting place to start your next recruitment campaign! See here where you should post your jobs for the best possible return on your investment in the Czech Republic.

 

Profesia.cz

Created in 2007, Profesia.cz is the one of the leading job portals in the Czech Republic. The web design is minimalistic but very clear and efficient. It has a user-friendly interface. Job offers are updated often and are of a high quality, from companies of all sizes. As a job seeker, the application process is simple, and there is no need to create an account to apply to an offer.

The site is also available in Slovak, Czech, German and English, which is a definite benefit for international jobseeking, and for employers looking to do business in the Czech Republic.

 

Jobs.cz

Jobs.cz is another strong player in the Czech Republic recruitment market. On this job board you can see jobs listed by industry which is helpful if you are struggling as to where to start. Jobs.cz also contains lots of interesting information on tips for improving your CV, average wages, required skills for certain jobs and language training courses.

The site is available in both English and Czech which is useful for jobseekers and employers alike, who are looking to do business and work in the Czech Republic.

 

Monster

International giant Monster is no less popular in the Czech Republic. Although other aggregators are also well-known there, this is the most widely recognised. While we wouldn’t advise posting solely on Monster, it is definitely a good back-up option if you are looking for a second job board to post on to support a Czech national job board.

Just like in other countries, Monster is very user-friendly and easy to navigate, and always displays a wealth of job opportunities. For recruiters this is a good choice too as it is widely used and for all different industries.

 

 

JobDNES

JobDNES is available only in Czech, which is limiting for international recruitment and jobseeking needs. Nonetheless, the homepage is attractive and self-explanatory, and there is a handy list of featured job adverts which highlight the current top offers.

The search feature is easy to use, allowing you to start with a general search and then narrow this down by geographic location and key words. As a jobseeker, you can also benefit from this site’s job hunting help and tips section. Also note that you can’t apply for a job directly on the site and this redirects you to the employer site itself

 

Prace.cz

Prace.cz is another good generalist job board in the Czech Republic. The layout is very clean and attractive, whilst retaining its high functionality and user-friendliness.

There is a range of job offers, some better than others in terms of companies, and with positions at all levels of hierarchy. Applying as a job seeker is easy and seamless, no need for an account. The site however is also only available in Czech which is okay for natives but presents more of an issue for international jobseekers and recruiters.

 

For both employers and job seekers, Jobboard Finder is the first decision-making tool for recruitment campaigns and job searches.
