Job Posting Sites Host Only Half of All Jobs. It’s Time to Do Something About It.

Despite unemployment rates that are reaching record highs, it may come as a surprise — and somewhat of a silver lining — to many job seekers to learn that according to the Department of Labor, there are actually close to 7 million jobs available in the United States. 

As both job seekers and employers alike understand, many of the job posts appear on multiple job boards. LinkedIn, Google for Jobs, CareerBuilder…the list goes on.

But what if we told you that despite all of these huge and extremely popular job posting sites, there are millions of jobs that job seekers cannot find? There are 7 million jobs available in the U.S. And there are over 33 million people unemployed, in need of work. However, thousands upon thousands of jobs will go unfilled simply because people who need work literally can’t find the jobs online.

Needless to say, that’s a problem. Not just from an operations and efficiency standpoint, but from a moral one as well. 

Let’s look a bit closer at this problem.
