Jobs2Careers, a pay per applicant job aggregator has been on a roll lately. They were named to the Inc.com list of fastest growing companies (2014) and they’re about to move into brand new offices in Austin Texas. I gave their site a look the other day and was highly impressed by its design, and UI.
There’s a lot to like about how they have constructed the job search experience. The site has a sharp, clean design with a strong color palette and they make the states browsable up front via the home page. If I was building a site today from the ground up, I’d emulate their design direction in a heartbeat. It’s simple, strong and effective. That lets the job seeker accomplish their task with minimal effort.
I prefer job sites that break out location links right on the homepage for easy access.
Here are some other aspects of the site that stand out to me.
I love how they call out “Hot Jobs” with that arrow, great design!
They also do a great job integrating Adsense into the site content.
When integrating Adsense, use the same link colors that appear on your regular content. The more blended it appears the higher the click through rate.
And their Post a Job icon is clearly visible on all pages throughout the site.
Dont hide your employer callouts. J2C does a good job of this, although I do prefer bigger employer graphics.
