The growth on Seek isn't really a suprise - probably more due to attrition is the printed press pages moving to online rather than an actual reflection of more available positions?

I will be using these stats in an interview on the ABC tomorrow. The biggest problem with major job boards is the lack of moderation, hence the influx of less than legitimate and 'junkie' type ads.

Just my two cents.

Hi Leigh

I'm surprised by your comment. On SEEK we have a great deal of moderation and remove many accounts and ads every day for suspected fraud, non-compliance with our strict advertising guidelines designed to give jobseekers the best experience. I know most other major job boards in Australia have similar approaches. Whilst I accept this may have been an issue in the early days of job boards, that time is long since behind us

Personally I don't find too many 'junkie' type ads on SEEK. Carey is right - Australian job boards spend a lot of time and money eliminating ads that do not directly benefit job seekers.

I have to stand up for the major job boards here - I think they all have procedures in place to protect job seekers from unscrupulous advertisers. Not sure what the situation is with minor job boards, start-ups and aggregators, but their traffic levels are negligible compared to the likes of Seek.

The only complaint I have with major job boards is that there are too many ads from recruiters - jobseekers would much rather apply for a direct-client ad, and they can be hard to find. Carey - would you back that?
