  • RecruiterBox is looking for a Head of Sales
    By on October 14, 2014 | No Comments  Comments

    recruiterboxI don’t usually post job openings on my blog but after meeting the CEO of RecruiterBox and striking up a friendship with him I felt strongly about helping him recruit.

    So when he asked if I knew any good sales people within the online recruitment industry I figured this site would be a good place to start. Its a great product and chance to get in on the ground floor of an up and coming recruiting tech company based in San Francisco.

    Here’s the details according to Raj Sheth, their CEO:

    Recruiterbox is a recruiting software for companies under 500 employees. We have acquired 650 customers through only online marketing and a DIY product, but starting now – we are looking to put together a sales team here in SF.

    I am looking for someone to lead all outbound sales efforts – you’d be joining incredibly early, setting up your own process, and have the incredible financial upside of a growing startup without many of the risks:

    – Work directly with founders that have bootstrapped to more than a $1MM in revenue
    – Best of both worlds: salary and equity (very competitive market salary)
    – Self funded: not beholden to outside interests
    – Build experiences that help small and big teams actually hire faster
    – Work with a team who REALLY loves the product they’re building
    – Build your own sales team

    So if you are interested contact raj@recruiterbox dot com

  • There’s a new backfill option in town
    By on October 13, 2014 | No Comments  Comments

    And its name is EmployIQ.

    https://www.employiq.com/

    The founder Bri Holt, recently emailed me about the new project. If you want to incorporate full job postings onto your site it looks like a good option. I asked him where the jobs come from:

    The jobs come from an array of primary sources – ATSs, primary job boards, primary search engines – we’ve got about 100 right now, but we’re keeping the exact list private for now (it actually took quite a bit of time to find and vet good job sources).

    My dream is (1) that we accurately find and categorize all the world’s jobs and bring some order to the tangled web that is job searching, and then (2) that we can openly share that data with others. If we can achieve those things, then I’m sure we can figure out a way to make some money.

    MORE DETAILS

    1. It’s a free, publicly available feed. You can see the documentation
    at https://www.employiq.com/doc/feed

    2. We’re getting about 4,000 new jobs per day from several hundred quality job sources. The jobs link straight to the actually job source, so no junk re-re-re-post links. You can see the types of jobs we’re getting our site (which mirrors our feed).

We offer about 100 categories from as broad as “IT” to as specific as “Anesthesiology.”

  • This job board just added video to the mix
    By on October 8, 2014 | No Comments  Comments

    CNCJobs.net has launched a job board and resume search engine with support for video (view site). In contrast to text-only job search engines, the website supports both photos and video to help employers and potential employees find the right match. According to the site, these unconventional features will help save employers money while shortening the hiring process.

    Job seekers can upload a pre-screen video profile for employers to view prior to select a candidate for an interview. Employers can also post video clips about the job or company for applicants. Once a match is made, employers can interview candidates via live streaming technology available through the site. The video job board can be accessed from any PC, tablet or smartphone.

    This is yet further proof of the visualization of the job search. Is your job board ready? Whats interesting to note about the CNC site is that CNC machinists aren’t exactly the most web savvy people. They are such a blue collar candidate I wonder how much early adoption they will get? Time will tell…

  • Heading to HRtech
    By on October 6, 2014 | No Comments  Comments

    October is one of my favorite times of the year. Not only are the leaves changing but its time for the HR Technology conference. 4 jam packed days of learning, networking, and expo hall all based around HR/recruiting technology. Not to mention its in Vegas! Its starts tomorrow.

    HR Tech time!

    This is by far the most interesting conference to be at since its where all the major players (from job boards to time & attendance software) and startups converge to show off and be seen. The networking is also tremendous as their are tons of parties and nightly events to go to.

    I’ll be there all week and hope to bring you my list of cool technology shortly after on this blog. And if you will also be attending lets grab a beer and talk shop. Just ping me on twitter or let me know you’ll be there.

    If you do want to go but cant afford the ticket consider getting an expo only pass. It costs $75 if you work as a recruiter or HR person. If you are a vendor in the space its $300.

  • Hiring badges are a good idea
    By on September 23, 2014 | No Comments  Comments

    I use ZipRecruiter for my day job as a recruiter and they just added a feature that I thought was really cool.

    BADGES!

    As you may know I’ve been on a big kick lately about becoming more visual and these ‘We’re hiring‘ badges that are embeddable are a great idea. Not only does it give the employer a cool way to promote their jobs you get free back-links when they are used.

    So whether you are a job board, aggregator or mini-ATS like ZR go create your badges and your clients will love you.

  • New wordpress job board theme – WpJobus
    By on September 11, 2014 | 1 Comment1 Comment  Comments

    There’s a new WordPress job board in town and its name is: WPJobus. It’s $58 and available for download on Themeforest.

    The developers emailed me recently and since I’m a sucker for new job board technology I was glad to mention it here on Job Board Secrets.

    Here’s what they claim about the new theme;

    This theme is completely made in WordPress so you can run it just like any other blog. We probably shouldn’t brag, but we seriously think that it is the most complete and easiest to use job board out there. You can register your company, post jobs, curriculums and many other amazing things. One of our favorite details about this theme though is that it lets you hide the menu bar. This makes your company profile and you resumé even more professional. And all this for a microstock file price. You can purchase it on ThemeForest and within a couple of clicks your website is ready to rock!

  • Sell your domains on Freemarket
    By on September 4, 2014 | No Comments  Comments

    The folks behind Freelancer.com have launched a competitor to Flippa and Godaddy auctions. Its called Freemarket.com. The best part is that its free and only charges 5% if a successful deal is made. Might be a better alternative to paying those pesky fees from the other sites I mentioned. So if you have some extra domains or used sites you want to sell check it out.

    Freemarket will let people post websites or domains for sale, either at auction basis or with a fixed-price eBay-style ‘But-It-Now’ option. A search on the keyword ‘job’ shows 23 sites related to job boards for sale.

  • Job boards in the news
    By on August 26, 2014 | No Comments  Comments

    Some job boards and new tech in the news for the job search market.

    1. PhysEmp.com, one of the nations first physician job boards and mobile app innovators, recently launched Job Search by PhysEmp.coma new mobile app that helps doctors search for jobs on the go. This is the 5th generation of the app and offers enhanced features for job-seeking physicians.

    See app on itunes.

    The importance of having an app for any job board cannot be overstated because of the growth of mobile traffic. In our case,the mobile traffic is overwhelmingly on the iPhone and iPad,” said Robert Truog, CEO of PhysEmp.com.”We have more than ten thousand physicians searching for jobs on our site, and its our job to ensure that they have access to our 20,000 listings throughout the day, wherever they are.”

    @chrisrussell: I think eventually every job board will need an app to be relevant.

    2. Quadjobs.com is odd jobs for college student linking to families.

    http://www.greenwichtime.com/business/article/QuadJobs-instead-of-odd-jobs-5639651.php

     @chrisrussell: another job search startup from Connecticut! I think they have a great domain name and are starting out correctly by targeting their local colleges first. 

    3. Purzue.com is a new online resume host. Link

    @chrisrussell: They pinged me on Linkedin. Looks cool but how will it make money?
