Traditional job boards collect job listings from employers (advertisers), resumes from job-seekers, and traffic from both kinds of users.
Aggregators take it further. They collect listings from a wide range of sites and then distribute them to a wide range of sites. They typically make money — a lot of it — through arbitrage.
In a 42-page special edition of Classified Intelligence Report, the AIM Group reviews more than 40 aggregators — what markets they serve, how they work, and how they make money. And we focus on their ambitions.
“Aggregators like Indeed.com, SimplyHired.com and TotalJobs.com use a wide range of business models, and have a wide range of alliances they participate in,” said Peter M. Zollman, founding principal of the AIM Group and executive editor of Classified Intelligence Report.
“We've taken an extensive look at the job-listing aggregators, because they have developed a whole new type of business that's neither a traditional job board nor a social networking or professional networking site such as LinkedIn. They've found a new way to make money supporting job-seekers, employers and job boards.”
