  • Madgex launches new mobile apply feature, rolling it out to client job boards
    By on December 16, 2013 | Comments Off on Madgex launches new mobile apply feature, rolling it out to client job boards  Comments

    I think Madgex may be the first job board software company to come out with mobile apply. None of the other vendors to my knowledge have done so yet. With all the cloud storage options available people will start storing their resumes and have them accessible from any device. It just makes sense.

    Madgex new mobile apply called “File Chooser”

    They just published a blog post on the new feature which you can read here. Here’s a quote…

    FileChooser enables jobseekers to upload their CV to the job board using one of three cloud services, Dropbox, Skydrive or Google Drive. The current roll out will allow tablet users to apply for jobs directly from their tablet device for the first time ever, complementing the changing needs of the modern day job seeker.

    Cloud storage and the addition of things like Linkedin’s apply button are how we are all going to be applying to jobs in the near future from our phones. Bet on it.

    We dont have enough job board directories.

    I recently learned of Jobboardfinder.net its a pay for access directory of sites across the world. I wish it were an open database but if you want to add your site use their contact us page to tell them of your existence.

  • Jobs in Social Media expands to UK and Canada
    By on December 8, 2013 | Comments Off on Jobs in Social Media expands to UK and Canada  Comments

    I’m taking advantage of the free version of Jobboard.io software to expand my social media job board into the UK and Canada. Its something I’ve been wanting to do for a while and finally got the time to get them setup. Took about 3 hrs to get them all squared away and live.

    I did it by setting up two new subdomains off the main jobsinsocialmedia.com domain.

    ca.jobsinsocialmedia.com
    uk.jobsinsocialmedia.com

    I’m able to choose backfill by country so it was easy to pre-populate each board with just jobs from those countries. I used the same logo as the main site and just added the country flags for easy identification.

    ca-jobsinsocialmedia

    uk-jobsinsocialmedia

    Boom, the site is now a global property!

    Over time it should start to pull in traffic from those countries.

    Lots of job boards and ATS software still dont get how to make a search engine friendly job description. I discovered Freshgigs.ca, a canadian based job board for marketing peeps and thought their job postings were well done.

    * The URL contains the job title AND location: https://www.freshgigs.ca/jobs/product-brand-marketing-manager-toronto-on-1

    * The first thing on the page is a job summary with all the relevant details.

    * The share links are easily visible and they have related jobs on the side.

    ATTENTION: job board software company or an ATS there’s some lessons to be learned here!

    The home page of http://www.freelancer.com/ has the most simplest effective homepage I’ve ever seen on a job board.

    Two buttons: hire/work

    The simplicity of their site warms my heart. Its a great lesson for those of you starting new job boards or thinking of redesigning your current site.
