If you’re looking to launch a regular or niche job board, or migrate your existing job, you have two options when it comes to the platform:
- Option 1: Build it yourself
- Option 2: Buy an off the shelf solution
Going with an ‘off the shelf’ or ‘white label’ job board software solution is a popular option for good reason.
Firstly it’s extremely quick to setup.
Secondly you benefit from the latest job board tech packed into a ready built platform,
And thirdly it’s almost certainly going to be cheaper.
Even if in the long run you prefer to build your own software, a white label job board solution will enable you to get up and running quickly and relatively cheaply.
This is important as it will enable you to run a ‘proof of concept’ and validate your business by attracting, onboarding and matching both jobseekers and recruiters.
This only works of course if your job board only needs what is considered ‘standard functionality’. If there is something else that will differentiate your business, you may need to go down the custom build route.
Top 9 list of best white label job board software platforms:
Jobboard.io belongs to US company Ziprecruiter who handle a huge volume of jobs. The advantage of using a white label job board platform that belongs to Ziprecruiter is that you can use their job inventory to populate your job board if you don’t have your own jobs.
