Reuter’s just reported that the E.U. has received complaints from 23 job-hunting sites about Google’s job search tool.
I have to be honest, it’s hard to care very much.
Most job search sites provide very little value other than glorified classifieds. In reality, the only reason they exist is to tell user data for billions of dollars on the open market — which is exactly what Google does.
Then Google comes along and serves you up to the job listings faster, easier and all in one place.
The danger of creating a product is always someone else coming along and making a better one. Just like our position in the workplace.
Everyone and everything is replaceable at any moment.
It’s our job to make ourselves or our product(s) indispensable.
You have to be so good they can’t ignore you.
