Job Boards Want Hourly Workers

from the different-economy,-different-focus dept

Remember the old boom time commercials for online job boards? The ones where they suggested that by putting your resume online you could get your dream job within a matter of minutes? Well, now the job boards are realizing that not only do dream jobs not exist any more, neither do permanent office jobs. At least not enough of them to keep the job boards making money. As we mentioned recently, all of the various online job seeking companies are revving up their focus on hourly employees. The latest Super Bowl ads from those companies are expected to highlight those types of jobs, rather than the dream jobs of years past.
