The purpose of this study was to investigate the possibility of defining factors which can be used as a measure of the utility of different types of online recruiting platforms and then measure these factors for different such platforms. Three platforms were chosen:, and We measured 25 features, which together gave a value for the utility of each platform. Based on these values, it is clear that important features which make a difference nowadays are integration with social media and mobile applications and also the way the information is presented. Information should be easy to follow, but not too scarce.
