  • 5 good looking job boards
    By on February 9, 2015 | Comments Off on 5 good looking job boards  Comments

    A good job board also means it has a well designed interface that is pleasing to the eye. Here are 5 job boards I picked that offer solid design principles.

    Bubble Jobs is a UK based site for the “digital industry”. The homepage is a little busy but its a unique design with a pleasing color palette. The bubble page background is a nice touch.

    Authenticjobs is a popular tech job board. Their homepage has a clean, focused interface. I love how much of the main real estate goes to the latest jobs. Logos along the left are also a ‘must have’ these days.

    Inbound.org/jobs is a community site for inbound marketers. They have a great job board too.

    Archinect.com/jobs is a community site for architects. Their job board features a clean, flat design, again featuring logo icons next to each listing.

    MyCNAjobs is a niche site for certified nursing assistants. Since its only for 1 kind of job they just have a zip code locator for finding the jobs near you.

  • New niche aggregator for tech jobs has launched
    By on January 26, 2015 | Comments Off on New niche aggregator for tech jobs has launched  Comments

    I’ve been waiting for more niche aggregators to emerge and Jobfusion appears to be one of them.
    jobfusion

    Our top priority is to build the best possible experience for job seekers. We’re building some cool machine learning tech to personalize job listings based on a job seekers preferences. We plan on making money by referring qualified candidates to companies on a pay per applicant model. – Jobfusion

    There’s lots of niche job boards out there so its time we started seeing more niche aggregators. Aggregating jobs is a better experience for the job seeker anyway. Just think Indeed for tech jobs, Indeed for Healthcare jobs, Indeed for trucking jobs, etc.

    For every niche there are 5-10 job boards that could potentially be brought together under one roof via one search engine. Might be worth taking a crack at this opportunity. You could index them for free and then upsell them premium features. Or you could charge the job seeker a small monthly fee to get access to all the jobs in one place.

    If you are looking to cut your development costs and need to outsource your development, a reader from the Ukraine, Roman Leleko has informed me that he knows of a dev team ready to be hired. Just wanted to pass this along.

    Self-promotion from a developers team with 12+ years of experience. Among other projects they did a job board website and SaaS web apps. They are looking for an owner of a jobboard or a cofounder willing to start up a new board.

    -Can develop from scratch or on a platform and do job posts or resume scraping.
    -The guys offer low rates and promise to provide a 3-weeks test job for free to prove their skills.

  • Update on Linkedin’s job aggregation strategy
    By on January 12, 2015 | 1 Comment1 Comment  Comments

    Last year Linkedin announced it would begin aggregating job listings just like Indeed does. It was a sign that job aggregation is going mainstream. I havent heard much about it recently so I asked my rep for an update. She wrote back with this info below that I wanted to pass along. It was a standard summary of what they wrote last year. Apparently the product is still in BETA and there is no timetable for release. From what I understand it will be free to employers when it does roll out.

    linkedin

    Earlier this year (2014), we began aggregating our customers’ open jobs that aren’t currently posted to LinkedIn, and representing them in our search results. We tested this over the summer with the eventual goal of indexing all of the world’s open opportunities in our search results. Since these listings will only appear in search results, they’ll only be seen by active seekers—for example, an active candidate who starts their job search on Google—and they’ll appear below any relevant Job Slots and Posts.

    So what exactly is happening and what does it mean for you?

    While it will take us time to add all of our customers’ opportunities, your open roles that aren’t currently posted to LinkedIn will begin to appear in our search results as limited listings.

    This will benefit you in a couple of ways:

    • First, all of your open roles will be visible to active job seekers, providing a complete picture of your opportunities in one place.
    • Second, by becoming, over time, the one-stop-shop for job seekers to manage and advance their careers, it will attract even more qualified candidates to LinkedIn, and to your opportunities.

    It’s important to remember that limited listings are only visible to candidates in job search on LinkedIn—and only ~25% of professionals are actively looking for jobs. This means that engagement with limited listings – just as with your career site and traditional job boards – is a one-way street, where active candidates search to view. And limited listings will appear below any relevant Job Slots in their search, too.

    By contrast, Job Slots proactively reach out and tap the right talent on the shoulder, regardless of whether or not they’re looking for a job. This hasn’t changed at all.

    In fact, Job Slots will:

    • Remain the only way to reach all of our 300M+ passive and active members. Only Job Slots will be recommended to relevant candidates in places like “Jobs You May Be Interested In”, desktop and mobile feeds, and your career page. This means they’ll automatically search and find the right passive candidates who aren’t actively looking.
    • Receive more visibility and attract more applicants. During early U.S. testing, Job Slots received ~10x more applications than limited listings.

    They’ll also help promote your talent brand, and they’ll be easily manageable in Recruiter.
    So while this new initiative will provide you with an added benefit (particularly with active seekers), Job Slots remain a key element of your passive recruiting strategy.

    Monster also said last year they will be aggregating jobs. These are sure signs of how the job board market is changing. Many boards have backfill now and aggregation is popular because it makes for a better job search experience. Job seekers need access to ALL the jobs at a company, not just a few.
