I think that depends on the company. Smallish companies don't have as many
people from which to get internal leads. At one place I worked, positions
were posted internal briefly, then went onto the job boards - and afterwards
to ads and other means of recruitment. The job boards were seen as the least
expensive external method, and, thus, an early choice.

Could be, but my impression is that even small companies are turning away from the job boards. The reason, I've been told once or twice, is that posting on a job board can result in hundreds of replies, many of which aren't suitable, but which still have to be sorted through. Not only do these unsuitable replies complicate the hiring process without giving any benefit, but a small company - which often means an understaffed one - can't afford to waste the effort to deal with them.
