  • Another company is entering the cannabis job market. This time an HR firm is launching an app for cannabis jobs featuring live video interviews.

    Progressive human resources firm, Faces Human Capital Management, fosters the unique legal cannabis industry’s community through new recruiting platform, which provides geo-located job listings, live video functionality and instant data sharing. Cannabis industry employers and job seekers can now instantaneously collaborate through the apps technology, making it easier for them to connect like never before.

    The new online mobile application, at cannabiscareers4u.com, was recently unveiled by Faces Human Capital Management (HCM). The app will be fully operational by September 1, although job-seekers and employers can currently access it through its landing page.

    Through the app, employers and job-seekers are able to upload job listings, locations, print and video resumes and other files. They also have the ability to share and access all that information in real time during live video interviews. Job-seekers can upload a print resume that can link-up with a company via text SMS, which eliminates the need, and possible delay, for email. They can also send information, including video, while talking live with a potential employer. Those looking for employment are even able to upload a 2.5 minute-long video resume to increase their recruitment chances. Employers can list and edit job listings in real time, all with geolocated maps, detailed job descriptions and “Apply Now” links. They also now have real-time access to a quality labor pool.

    Chris Cassese, the company’s co-founder and managing director, says “While there are online job boards, I believe we’ve set a precedent with our fully-optimized app for iOS and Android by establishing an instantly-connected job recruiting community for the cannabis industry. In cannabis we want your uniqueness to shine. We want employers to see who you are, to value the uniqueness that you bring, along with your skills and attributes, and to match you up the jobs that they have.”

    The online mobile platform is free for job-hunters, and the cost for employers is noticeably less than other available job recruitment services. All the while offering companies instant access to detailed information about tens of thousands of jobseekers.

    As a progressive human capital management company focusing on the cannabis space, Faces HCM is growing rapidly. It has offices in ColoradoOregonWashington StateCaliforniaMassachusettsNew YorkNew Jersey and Washington, D.C. – with plans to expand in the near future into Canada and other nations interested in the legal cannabis sector.

    “This app is a great entry point for people interested in cannabis, whether they’re dipping their toe in or jumping into the deep end. We’ve set up a community that provides job-seekers with access to some of the best-in-class employers around the county and, in the future, globally,” says Cassese.

  • HempStaff, a leader in recruiting for employees in the cannabis and hemp industries has announced it has launched the initial phase of new platforms for dispensary training information and recruiting services.

    Please welcome cannabisemployment.com to the job board space. This site provides those who are looking for a career in the cannabis industry the opportunity to view open positions throughout the country. The site also provides job seekers with the opportunity to register for access to HempStaff’s services, which guides individuals through the job search process. The services also include lists of current job openings, application process guidance and, potentially, job placement.

    The cannabis job market throughout the country is growing at an incredible rate, with opportunities opening for various levels of experience. According to a study, the cannabis industry is poised to grow to at least 330,000 jobs in 2022.

    Here are some other cannabis job boards I have previously mentioned. HempStaff is another example of staffing agencies getting int o the job board business.

  • A new cannabis job board from Leafbuyer Technologies has launched. It is powered by Jobboard.io. This joins joins several others which you can discover on my job board directory page for this category. I count at least 6 boards now serving the growing weed industry. The press release is below.


    DENVER–Leafbuyer Technologies, Inc. (OTCQB: LBUY) (“Leafbuyer”), the largest online resource for cannabis deals and specials, announced today the expansion of its Online Job Board, adding to its database more than 4,000 cannabis-related jobs in the U.S. and Canada. The new online career-finder helps users begin or advance their careers in one of the most vibrant and growing industries. The site includes full-time and part-time job listings for budtenders, sales specialists, delivery drivers, general managers and much more. The online job board also includes positions in Canada, which, like the U.S. is experiencing tremendous growth in the industry.

    “The significant expansion of our job board will fill a void and help dispensaries and employers find the best possible talent,” says Leafbuyer Technologies CEO Kurt Rossner. “Job seekers can find their desired job by city, state, job class and industry keywords.”

    The cannabis industry’s growth has led to the creation of tens of thousands of jobs in the states which have legalized recreational and medical marijuana: A report from cannabis industry research group, Arcview Market Research, projects that within three years, medical and recreational marijuana will create more than 400,000 jobs in the United States.

    “Expanding our product offerings is a critical component of Leafbuyer’s strategic growth and we recognize how important it is to help our customers expand their business operations,” said Leafbuyer COO Mark Breen. “We launched the expanded job board to help our clients identify and recruit committed employees who want to succeed in this growing and dynamic industry.”

  • Generally speaking, it is difficult to get job seekers to pay for anything. But if the product offers value, you can sell to them. Two of the more viable viable products I can think of are ebooks and courses.

    EBOOKS

    When I ran AllCountyJobs, I wrote ebooks for each of the county based sites I operated. Each doc listed the area’s top employers, career advice, local job resources and more. I sold 5-10 of these per month for ten bucks each. Not a lot of money, but it helped make my sites more profitable each month.

    But even if you run a national niche site you can do the same thing. Create a pdf guide for “working in (your) industry” and sell it for $10 bucks. People will buy it as long as the content is of value. You can even use a site like Gumroad.com to sell your ebooks under a subdomain. Gumroad is free, but costs just $10 a month if you want extra features including a custom domain.

    COURSES

    An online course that targets your niche is also a great idea. You can use services like Teachable.com to create one and charge money for it. The good thing with courses is you can charge much more than ebooks. If you created a course for something like “How to Get a Job in (insert) Industry” you could easily charge $99-$299 depending on the popularity of your niche.

    For example, a course like how to get a job in major league baseball is sure to be a hit. Or perhaps even an industry like Cannabis or casinos.

    I like to see job boards have multiple revenue streams beyond just job postings. Sites like JoeProduce.com are a good example of that through its resume service that is a significant portion of its income.

  • One of the most common questions I hear from job board owners is how to price their site.

    For me this greatly depends on several factors including;

    • Country you operate in
    • Niche you service
    • Amount of competition
    • Your reach

    COUNTRY

    If you operate in the USA job post prices here are among the lowest in the world. This is because of the amount of competition that exists. Job boards are a mature industry so typical pricing is around $100 for 30 days. However if you operate in Europe, UK or other countries job boards are more ingrained into those recruiting markets. For example, there’s a job board in Germany that charges $1000 for a single posting! If employers in the market you serve uses job boards a lot you can charge more.

    NICHE

    Is your niche growing? Niches like cannabis, nursing, and trucking are some of the hottest job board markets so those sight can charge more of a premium to post jobs. Check out the JobsinTrucks media kit. Vangsters charges $99/mo for unlimited and I do see other weed job sites with similar pricing but this niche is getting more competitive every day.

    COMPETITION

    How many competitors do you have? If the answer is more than 5 then I suggest undercutting their pricing in order to gain market share. If however you only have a few competitors and you are in a newer niche you can charge more. Try pricing your 30 days posts around $199. Monthly subscriptions raining from $99 to $199 are also gaining adoption.

    REACH

    What kind of reach does your site have? The more traffic and emails you have stored the more you can charge. If you have a dedicated audience already existing you can monetize that. For instance this site for Massachusetts insurance jobs has a captive audience of highly targeted pros in just that industry. Therefore they can charge a little higher.

    Hopefully these guidelines give you an idea of how to price your options to employers. Research your competition and come up with something that makes sense for your audience.

  • The new owner of Greenjobs.com, a premium job board domain name has relaunched the business as a new job board on the SmartJobBoard platform. I helped launch the site recently via my concierge service.

    Adam Yamada-Hanff, who owns the site, tells me that in addition to typical green jobs like solar, he will be adding wind energy, EV and other types of renewable positions.

    Green jobs reached a peak fever in the early 2010’s and I even had a site for them back then. Today the biggest part of that market is solar jobs which are still going strong and growing each year. Adding cannabis jobs to the site couldn’t hurt and should provide a boost in traffic.

    Launching a job board with a great two word domain like Greenjobs.com will be a key part of its success if it does well. This domain brings with it credibility and trust which will attract visitors. In fact, it already receives type in traffic from people wondering if it exists so that intent bodes well for the newest member of our job board community.

  • Recruitology, which powers digital recruitment classifieds for hundreds of media outlets, ranging from small local publications to large media properties like the LA Times and the NY Daily News is now offering original backfill to participating job boards.

    They have thousands of local job listings from small and medium employers looking to advertise locally and are constantly looking to get their jobs in front of more niche audiences as part of their partner network.

    If your job board is in any of the industries below you would be a good candidate for their network.

    • Accounting and Finance
    • Call Center
    • Cannabis
    • Construction
    • Education
    • Energy & Engineering
    • Healthcare
    • Hospitality
    • Information Technology
    • Law Enforcement
    • Manufacturing & Trade
    • Nursing
    • Sales & Marketing
    • Transportation and Logistics

    “Original backfill” is better than traditional backfill because you get to list the full job listing versus just a snippet.

    Benefits to job sites that accept jobs from Recruitology:

    • Unique content from small and medium employers
    • Jobs not usually found anywhere else, as many of these employers don’t always advertise on the larger job sites.
    • An additional revenue stream

    Recruitology tells me their payouts are on par or better with other players. Partner sites can request a custom XML feed of jobs to scrape.

    • Ezayo.com is a new site for HR jobs.
    • Find.jobs set to launch. owners of the .jobs domains are trying to reboot interest in their domain business. The problem with this concept though is that a domain name does not mean you will have a successful business. Plus with Google Jobs now reducing typical SEO traffic the .jobs domain is not as useful as it used to be. Their new flagship sites boasts 8 million jobs and uses the Google search technology. [LINK]

    Uncommon.co is a new AI based matching site that just got 18 million in funding. Employers only pay for ‘qualified’ applicants so they say. Its a hug amount for a jobs startup. Matching sites have been tried before and most have failed. I don’t know if this is worthy but bears watching. [LINK]

    CasinoCareers Goes Mobile | Link


    Casino Careers will showcase its redesigned Job Board, dubbed by Google as “mobile friendly and easy to use on mobile devices” at the 2017 Global Gaming Expo (G2E) in Las Vegas.

    “According to Jibe, 86% of jobseekers who have a smartphone would use it to search for a job,” said Beth Deighan, president of Casino Careers. “However, most of our candidates find it much easier to complete the application process with a computer,” continued Deighan. “And that is why we completely redesigned our Job Seeker Resume Dashboard.”

    The new dashboard enables candidates to easily personalize, update or upload a resume, create/modify their job search profiles to receive custom job alerts about new opportunities, and keep track of the last 100 positions to which they have applied.

    Job openings posted on CasinoCareers.com which require gaming industry experience highlight that requirement in the header, making it easier for applicants to identify positions seeking such expertise.
