The beginning of the year is usually a busy time for job board launches. Here are some of the most recent ones I’ve seen with a little bit of commentary.
JOBCRANK – “JobCrank.com, is a national job board that specializes in helping recruiters, small businesses, and individuals connect with future employees or freelance contractors. JobCrank.com is the one of the web’s leaders in delivering job opportunities through social networking partners and hundreds of job boards nationwide.
Companies and recruiters can post their jobs at a very low rate of $4.99 per basic job listing. Companies and recruiters also have the ability to increase their job listings exposure by selecting from one of three job listing packages.”
MY TAKE: National job boards like this will never make it. They’ll never overtake Monster or CB. May be able to squeek out some revenue from the Indeed backfill but not much else. Good price point though…$4.99 per job.
ACCOUNTANCY AGE JOBS – “Leading business-to-business publisher Incisive Media has announced a new jobsite for Accountancy Age Jobs. The move is part of a newly formed partnership with AccountingWeb to provide a recruitment solution with a collective reach to 385,000 individuals in the accountancy market.
Accountancy Age Jobs has adopted the latest version of the award winning Madgex Job Board Platform. The jobsite includes Madgex’s next generation CV database, CV Search and Match, an intelligent search technology which matches recruiter needs with the most relevant candidates. The two new sites will offer recruiters increased reach to accountancy professionals.”
MY TAKE: A global job board powered by Mdgex one of the nicer designed software providers. Love the credit card images on the home page! Says we are open for business. Too many logos on the home page, looks a little cluttered.
EXPATHIRING – “ExpatHiring.com unveiled a new online niche job board this week, focusing solely on the international employment of expats and bilingual professionals around the world. ExpatHiring.com is more than simply a job board for expat jobs – it is a whole new experience in expatriate recruitment. The website aims to provide expat job seekers with everything needed to help find genuine international job opportunities and make the subsequent relocation overseas much easier.”
MY TAKE: Well designed user interface with nice graphics. Not sure how big of a niche this is but looks like a strong contender. Really impressed with the design
