    Here’s a pretty cool piece of job board software I just found. Its actually not your typical job board software but a “job aggregator” script that works off the RSS feeds of most of the big guys.

    Buy it here. Or check out this live preview.

    I bought a copy recently and cant wait to play with it.

  • Recruiters on twitter
    By on September 11, 2013 | Comments Off on Recruiters on twitter  Comments

    There are a lot of recruiters on twitter. If you did a survey I bet recruiters, sales people and social media consultants are in the top 10 occupations for people on the platform. So from a job board or HR tech product standpoint you better be engaging with them, after all, your business depends on their dollars.

    Start following them and retweet their stuff, favorite their tweets (they’ll get pinged with an email), start developing a relationship with your target market.

    For a few weeks this summer my developer and I built a simple twitter directory for recruiters, staffing and HR professionals. Its called ‘RECRITTERS‘ (mashup of ‘recruiter’ and ‘twitter’) . Its a cool site that organizes them into industry and also has a leaderboard that shows the biggest influencers according to number of followers. Its only got about 100 or people in it but it will get bigger over time. And since I own it, it doubles as a lead gen tool.

    You can create cool things with the Twitter API, Recritters is a great example of that. Feel free to use it to find recruiters to follow, but beware I dont allow job board accounts on it. Trying to keep it people focused.

  • Breaking news: Adicio gets Mashable’s job board
    By on August 28, 2013 | Comments Off on Breaking news: Adicio gets Mashable’s job board  Comments

    Big win for job software provider Adicio as they just convinced Mashable to convert to their software from Jobamatic. (read article) This is a big blow to Jobamatic and may point to its limitations since they dont offer a resume database and have very few features to speak of. I wish those that run Jobamatic take this as a sign that the product needs an overhaul.

    Their new job board can be seen here;

  • myCNAjobs.com is a well designed job board
    By on August 26, 2013 | Comments Off on myCNAjobs.com is a well designed job board  Comments

    Niche job board myCNAjobs.com has a new look which I really dig. Its one of those “micro-niche” type job boards that focus on one type of job. In this case, Certified Nursing Assistants (CNAs). They just introduced a new “badging” system for their job seekers. According to the article;

    For those on the job hunt, the latest release from myCNAjobs allows caregivers to earn badges for caregiver training achievements and standout for their willingness to work in various positions, including live-in caregiver jobs. Employers can find the badges displayed on caregiver profiles, allowing them to filter the workforce to find a qualified hire.

    I think giving badges to job seekers is a great idea that most any niche site can copy. Its another way to keep seekers engaged on your site as well as providing employers with more trustworthy candidates.

    And I love the new look of this job board. Its beautiful. I especially like the zip code search function. When you have a job board with only one type of job you only need to provide a way to search by location since the job title (aka keyword) is always the same.

  • Jobboard.io announces new pricing plans, rev share
    By on August 14, 2013 | Comments Off on Jobboard.io announces new pricing plans, rev share  Comments

    New job board software provider Jobboard.io has announced new pricing and the addition of a revenue sharing plan. According to the company;

    This is great plan for folks just getting started with their job board who aren’t yet ready for a monthly commitment. This allows Job Board owners to really take the time to market and build your audience without immediately worrying about earning revenue.

    With this plan we simply take a 25% share of any job posted on your site – with no monthly fixed fee. So for example if you charged $10.00 for a Job Posting, we would take $2.50, and the remaining $7.50 (minus any Stripe fees) would be sent to your Stripe account.

    This makes it more attractive for newbie job boards to get off the ground with no upfront cost. Its nice to have another option besides Jobamatic when it comes to launching new sites.

    You can read more about this on their blog. The new pricing plans are as follows;

    $0 month with 25% rev share
    $99 month for 1 job board
    $249 month for 3 job boards
