Search as the job board

About a month ago I wrote an entry on search engines and job boards - the simple summary being that I thought that job-specific search would become the dominant way of finding jobs.

I was not the only one thinking this way. Have a look at Indeed.com and you'll see it's based on much that I discussed.

A few other reasons for checking this one out. First they have developed a simple stats page which they indicate is only the start.

Secondly, they have added personalised RSS as a way of being informed about new jobs matching the search criteria.

Finally, they have an interesting Blog called Blog Indeed.

How long before one of the big search firms follows into this area?
