Why No RSS for News?

December 19th, 2013 No comments

Why is it that so few companies provide us with RSS feeds of their news?

I know RSS has been around for a long time (in web terms) but with my “PharmiWeb editor” hat on, I find it incredibly useful to keep track of multiple companies (and topics) in one place. Tools like Feedly, make it very simple.

However, probably less than 10% of companies provide a News RSS feed. Which means I either have to trawl round dozens of sites, or as is more often the case, I don’t bother. I’m not sure who’s missing out most?

Now there are tools to turn a website into an RSS feed, but I’ve not found them to be very intuitive or easy to set up: but why should I need to do this, when its far simpler for every company’s website to provide it for me.

Come on guys, make 2014 the year of RSS.

JobG8 Job board Summit

December 6th, 2013 No comments

Fascinating sessions at the 2013 JobG8 job board summit yesterday. Thanks to all the speakers and sponsors.

My key takeaways (in no particular order):

  • Give clients (and candidates) more “insight” by digging into our “big data”
  • Don’t lose focus and continuously improve the key user experiences
  • Don’t ever forget your core product
  • Invest in your “Tech Team”
  • Nobody’s quite figured out how to apply by mobile (or are not saying).. attach Cvs from dropbox/gDrive etc
  • Need to focus on mobile and the huge variations of device
  • Survey your users continuously
  • Don’t forget Google+
  • Job boards are not going away
  • LinkedIn are not perfect (and may not be around forever)
  • Candidates can be described as “active” or “random”
  • Smart Posting? – we post for client –  Added value (£) (Post & candidate filtering?)
  • Adaptive – Responsive is the way to go
  • API the product
  • Aggregators are a necessary evil (for now) – and everyone uses them
  • Automatic job matching based on candidate’s profile/behaviour
  • Continuously improve job search.
  • Clients want quality not quantity
  • Candidates want quality (relevance) not quantity
  • Minimise barriers to everything
  • Put yourself in the shoes of the candidate
  • Loading times on mobile are crucial
  • Candidates hate not knowing the application status
  • eHarmony are still working on their job board
  • Not enough innovation
  • Everyone is seeing growth – good indicator for economy!

I’m sure there’s loads more that will come back to me, but this is a good start!
