After yesterday's post I have been thinking a bit more about BeKnown. It’s not that I think it’s rubbish; I actually think it’s quite clever. What I think has been making me grumpy about it is that I think it’s a wasted opportunity. It’s like having your hair done, buying new frock and looking really amazing just to spend the evening staying in with your parents. It’s cool technology on a enormously utilised platform BUT it’s just for one job board.
It would be brilliant if you could use BeKnown to locate jobs from ALL the job boards and ALL the corporate sites; I wish Indeed had invented it. But they didn’t (don’t get me wrong – I like Monster BTW).
I was having a mini rant to Stephen O’Donnell earlier when he came up with the real brainwave (as Indeed can’t invent something already invented)... why don’t Monster integrate with all the other job boards and corporates and use BeKnown as a gateway to the world of work. See, genius!!
