    The search is easy and looks great. Indeed should be quaking in their boots. Big limitation: No remote jobs search ability. It seems that all search is local, if not even hyperlocal. If someone is looking for a remote or virtual job, it is nearly impossible to find unless the gig is posted in your area or you are searching multiple areas.

    Joel,
    Do you really think that indeed and LinkedIn are going out of business while sites like beyond are where the future is? Is it Bc Beyond.com pays you/sponsors your podcast and they don’t? Sure seems that way.
    And yeah – Google for jobs looks great? Anyone reading this, run a search and look at all the results. Just more clicks in the process to a horrible apply process on a dying job board. Come on Google, what are you thinking? Partnering with companies like CB (who just sold for less valuation than Monster), Monster, GD, Zip? This isn’t real, is it? We don’t need Google to create a job board widget.
    What you should talk about is how these dogs know they can’t win and now that they NEED Google to work for their own survival. They are spreading the gospel that the 28m job seekers that visit Google (their numbers not mine) will impact their traffic, making them all of a sudden relevant. What it really looks like is all of these companies have conceded to Indeed. If Google really wanted to get into jobs, they’d buy Indeed. This feels like another distraction, a mediocre dive into an industry they ‘should’ be able to compete in but won’t. (travel for example)

    Turn your bias down and open up your eyes.

      Not sure where Beyond came from, since I don’t even mention them in the article. Aside from that, thanks for sharing your opinion.

        Beyond came from your podcasts. Beyond does sponsor your podcast and is a product you stand behind, yes? One would think and I’m sure Byond.com sure believes that is the case.

        Lets just be clear. Then it is easier for people absorbing your content to understand why you go after the most successful companies in the space, touting their demise, while somehow complimenting these other companies struggling to keep up let alone compete.
