A company that once had over 100 employees in the job board space has shuttered, I learned recently.

EmploymentGuide was a longtime job newspaper publisher and website that for many years lived off blue collar listings. The site ( has been taken offline and rumor has it the owner is looking to sell the domain. I reached out but got no response. They were founded in 1995.

EG had a thriving business once but there’s no money in newspaper ads and they couldn’t make the switch to digital work for them. This news is not surprising, but I thought it worthy of mention.

Out with the old in with the new…though I don’t pretend to know exactly why they shut down this is a reminder than any business must evolve and adapt over time.
