According to a recent story released by SF Gate, Zappos.com the giant online retailer will no longer place any of their jobs on external job boards or its own website. Instead they will use online talent communities to find candidates. Zappos will use a cloud platform to leverage social technologies and reach passive candidates through a social network. The article quoted Kris Stadelman, director of the Nova Workforce Investment Board in Sunnyvale, California, "It's an acknowledgment that in today's market, the job board is just not useful anymore," says Kris Stadelman. "It's generally speaking, a black hole that creates a ‘negative relationship’ with companies.” (For the full article see the link supplied below).
