    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.

  • Awesome new job board software platform
    By on April 2, 2013 | 1 Comment1 Comment  Comments

    Job board software hasn’t been too exciting lately. The vendors have pretty much stayed staus quo over the past few years since the industry is a mature one. But Jobboard.io is on the scence with an affordable hosted solution that is mobile ready, integrates with backfill and has a great design/user interface.

    jobboardio

    According to their site they were frustrated by current technologies so they built their own:

    We’ve been running niche job boards via 3rd party platforms for years – but quickly grew tired of watching our time and revenue go out the door. Other “free” solutions can get you up and running, but take 50% (or more!) of all your job posting revenue. That just didn’t seem right to us. So we built our own platform focusing on the features that matter most. With fixed monthly pricing, you get to keep the rewards of the effort you put in, and are able to understand and predict your monthly costs.

    I took a look at some of the sites they power like bigdatajobs.com and hackernest.com. Notice the big red POST A JOB buttons. I have been advocating those for years and somebody finally built them into the product. And their other features are spot on, custom themes, international payment support, flexible pricing (incl. free), seo friendly, responsive design, a simple backend admin, applicant tracking, custom domains.

    Although I havent tested it yet I cant wait to try. The company appears to be based out of New York City.

    While at the Mobile Recruiting Camp event last week I ran into Alexey Gutin from Webscribble.com, the maker of Webjobs job board software. I asked him to give a quick interview about what they’re up to. In addition to job board software they provide employers software to power their career sites.

    A reader asked me to give her some suggestions about job board software they could download and customize as their own. Here’s my top picks. I don’t have a favorite among these but compare them all before you buy. These are all self hosted options.

    Joining the ranks of Jobpress and JobRoller, a new wordpress theme for job boards is out. Its called JobJockey. Price is $69 which is the cheapest of the 3 templates. It doesn’t appear to support backfill from the aggregators but its a nice looking template. View their demo.

    Software provider Adicio has announced new rates for their Professional Edition job board platform.

    Monthly costs are now $595 and the setup fee is $1,500 according to a rep that emailed me. This is too expensive for new job boards with little to no revenue however existing job boards with established sales would be a good candidate for their platform.

    Some recent job boards in the news…

    * I discovered a new word press plug to create job board functionality.

    * ResumeBear has created a new simplified apply process using their resume profile service.

    http://resumebear.com/jobs/search

    The simple and easy applying process is what separates ResumeBear from other Job Boards. Pick the Job Post, choose a Resume, customize the Cover Letter and Send; The Tracking begins.

    “Now with over 250,000 Resumes accumulated from job seekers in the ResumeBear data-base, employers now have a vast selection of candidates to hire from” says Bob Warren….read full article.

    * TNhospiltalJobs.com is a new “micro-niche” job board. Its a hybrid combining a locality with an industry. I think we’ll start to see more of these type boards in the coming years.

    * Monster is getting squeezedA fragile economy and increasing competition from social networking brands such as newly-listed LinkedIn Corp, are making life tougher for online job boards Monster Worldwide Inc and Dice Holdings Inc.

    Monster’s margins are being squeezed, and the company, which pioneered digital recruiting almost 20 years ago, looks out of touch, missing out on an industry rebound. Read Full Article
