Measuring Your Success: The KPIs of Top Job Boards

Measuring Your Success: The KPIs of Top Job Boards

Join me for a free Webinar on September 19th from 2-3:00 PM eastern, sponsored by RealMatch.

It’s no secret that the competitive landscape is changing for job board operators. The number of employment sites continues to rise and social networks and aggregators continue to gain share in this lucrative market.

How do you stay ahead of the pack? By monitoring the right Key Performance Indicators. (KPIs) They are the best way to determine how your site is performing relative to the market and what strengths you should be leveraging to enhance the valuation of your business.

Join me and my friends at RealMatch for a Webinar on this important topic. I’ll review some the most important KPIs for your business and present the key findings of the 2012 IAEWS Global Job Board Benchmark Survey.

The Career Fitness Workbook introduces a complete regimen of activities that will help you successfully compete for and hang onto the job of your dreams.
