Recruitment Directory closes MySpace job search applications

Posted By: Thomas Shaw, 3:24pm Thursday 29 October 2009    Print Article

Over the past few months, in consultation with all of our affected clients. We have decided to remove all of our MySpace job search applications from use. This decision was based on the fact that the social networking site is no longer a valuable source of candidate traffic and becoming a detriment to the employer brand.

Supporting hundreds of applications across multiple social networking sites is very resource intensive. There are still many ways you can post jobs to MySpace including status updates and automatic RSS feeds. Now days, most clients would rather use the site to mine for candidate data.

MySpace is still a valuable social network to millions of people, and it is not going to disappear. But if this trend continues, you could see it completely fade away in terms of relevancy.
