Chatter: Jobster, Kenexa, and Peopleclick

Jobster’s “Death Knell”…

Has CEO Jason Goldberg and Jobster passed the point of no return? That’s the question posed on Joel Cheesman’s blog, along with a poll to determine whether Goldberg is, in fact, killing his company. Cheesman writes that a recent Wired magazine article criticizing Jobster’s leadership is a “fascinating ride into how bloggers are dictating so much of what people see when investigating a person or a company via Google, and how much of it can be negative.”

Cheesman adds that the Wired article also represents “another straw on the camel’s back of how Jason Goldberg the person might just be the death knell for Jobster, the company, if this stuff continues.”

Peopleclick says it continues to support 26 of the DiversityInc Top 50 for Diversity companies, including seven clients among the top-10 winners.

In fact, Peopleclick client Bank of America was ranked number one on the list, as well as number one on the Top 10 Companies for Recruitment and Retention list.

DiversityInc, a monthly business magazine, compiles the list through a 230-question survey.
