Deep vs shallow job platforms
You might be into HR and people or not at all, but I reckon that the article on the current change from shallow to deep job platforms is relevant for many of us. It’s not merely about what’s happening in job platforms, but the same mindset and strategy also applies to many of the other platforms and marketplace out there. It also has some characteristics of unbundling
, which I dedicated this newsletter to
a few weeks ago.
But instead of creating entire new marketplaces out of niches found within a marketplace (unbundling), these deep job platforms hone into certain frictions within a give vertical and set out to solve that friction to create a new layer within an existing vertical. All in all a very interesting methodology.
What is it that you’re doing? Can you uncover (hidden) friction within the vertical you/your company operates in? This can be the starting point for either a feature or a whole new business model.
