Few in the industry are on the mark as often as Joel Cheesman. In every weekend review his Cheezhead blog regularly demands a linked post. It’s simply required reading. Interestingly enough, I made a rudimentary pitch of this nature at a corporate client and it was considered perhaps a bit “Out There” at the time and yet Joel has been making the case over the years, and few articulate (evangelize) the vision as well as he has. Joel is test driving the tactic and giving us a roadmap. I’m listening. If you want to connect the dots on the rise of niche-oriented, content rich sites be it corporate and/or vertical driven sites, you will inevitably be linked back to Cheeshead for the chronological updates and illustrations.

Regulars of Cheezhead know Iâ€™m a big fan of blogs that provide job content to their loyal readers. I even have one. I think theyâ€™re a fantastic resource for targeting passive candidates in coordination with search marketing efforts.
Fortunately, Iâ€™m not the only one.
Cutting through the clutter. The big problem, as I see it, is enabling employers the ability to find the right blogs and channels for their job openings with relative ease and efficiency.
As a result, Iâ€™ve created Blogs with Jobs (beta). The goal of the site is to become a resource for employers, or any interested party, such as the press or blogosphere, to get information on the top blogs that provide job posting functionality.
Blogs with Jobs (beta) will probably only be updated as new blogs are added (quite a few at first, then tailing off, then regaining momentum (my guess)), so I recommend signing up for the RSS feed for convenience.
Also, I invite you to add Blogs with Jobs to your own blogroll, Web site and tagging it via the service of your choice to help spread the word.
