The battle for the most trafficked job board is always an interesting contest to watch. It got really interesting a couple of years ago when CareerBuilder partnered with a ton of print media and subsequently left Monster in the proverbial dust. Since then there have been a number of up and coming job boards and new competitors. These new competitors have done a lot to try and displace both Monster and CareerBuilder but as the numbers clearly show none are really all that close or even in the same neighborhood. That neighborhood by the way is the listing of the top 50 web properties.
As you look at the numbers for Monster and CareerBuilder you cannot help but notice that very little now seperates the two. From a recruiter perspective I think both leave a lot to be desired, but just like on American Idol who I think should win (Danny Gokey) is not always going to be who America picks. War on!
