Carey Eaton talking about "The Marketplace"

Posted By: Thomas Shaw, 10:49pm Monday 27 September 2010    Print Article

Robert Half recently interviewed Carey Eaton, CIO at SEEK on the role (and career path) of a CIO. It's quite interesting to hear why SEEK is not a technology company and his views on the marketplace.

How do you think your industry will look in 10 years time?

The key thing for job hunting or any marketplace business is the idea you donít miss out. People are always going to look for jobs, and they are always going to want to be in the place where there are the most opportunities so they donít miss out. Having that marketplace is the key and I can't see any scenario where that marketplace world is going to disappear.

I do think the idea that the marketplace "is a website" is perhaps a limited view of that. Yes, you can see by the distribution of technology, the consumerisation of mobile, and those thoughts of things, but how you access the market is going to change. Whether itís at a device level, or what sort of time you access it, or the form you access it - the marketplace of about how people look for jobs, or how employers look for talent that marketplace is always going to exist. The marketplace that has the most opportunity or the most people in it or the most options for employers is going to be the marketplace where everyone wants to be and so thatís very important. Whether thatís a technology thing.. I donít think so. Technology will be important to that, but that marketplace will exist.
