Is the future bright for Web 2.0?
Without doubt the way people recruit and hunt for jobs is changing rapidly. Job seekers have greater access to more jobs, and, recruiters have greater access to more candidates.
But does all this change mean that employers will more easily find more of the right candidates to fill job posts and that job seekers will more easily find the right jobs to help them lead a fulfilling career?

But what will happen when Google and Microsoft provide Word or equivalent as a free web based package. At that point, it would mean that pretty much every CV becomes web based, indexed and searchable, assuming of course permission is granted. But permission of course will be very simple and in some cases, people will not even consider the implications of this. Google and Microsoft will I am sure make sure that people do not make personal information public but by doing this, people will become more trusting – and so they should!!
So, we move from X million to X zillion CV’s available on the web. This then creates two recruiting opportunities.
Recruiters will be able to do more searching and find genuine passive candidates.
The search engines will be able to match jobs to people in lots of ways.
Say for example you are happy for Google to market your details for very specific job related searches by recruiters. We could end up with Poogle, the (vertical) people search engine [OK, it’s a crap name], complete with Adwords that show best-matched people. And maybe the recruiter will have to pay to click on the ads; maybe the person will pay to market themselves. Maybe the recruiter pays to download contact details only once they have seen further details; a myriad of options as ever.
Much talk about Web 2.0, many opinions about what will happen, but plenty of ideas from many places.
