Since the mid to late 90’s, there have been multiplemilestones in the recruiting industry that have given rise to speculation (both positive and negative) on technology’s impact on the recruiting community. In the last 20 years, we’ve seen the growth and (in some cases) decline of broad job/resume posting websites such as CareerBuilder, Monster, Ladders and Indeed, along with many more highly specialized sites in this space catering to specific talent communities, like Dice and Stack Overflow. We’ve also seen the growth and evolution of LinkedIn’s platform from 500,000 members in 2004 to its current 400 million-plus.
