Here are some new job related sites that are being launched…
Headhunter.com – CareerBuilder has just launched a job search site that allows users to find out how their credentials stack up to other candidates for a job. The site will offer a “job competition report” as a means to differentiate itself and help lure quality candidates who may be used to seeing market research as part of their day-to-day jobs. Fortune magazine has a writeup on it.
PhiladelphiaJobs.net – this is my latest site for philadelphia jobs. I took it off Jobamatic and moved it to Jobtarget. Since Jobtarget sites collect job seekers and resumes I thought moving it was a better long term solution for my network. Other than phillyjobs.com there also aren’t many independent sites that target that area anyway.
MassMediaJobs.com – not a new site but it is for sale on flippa. Might be worth a look at picking up if the price is right. Wouldnt pay more than $5k for it though in my opinion.
VentuRocket – this is a marketplace where job seekers bid on their skills to compete for job opportunities and employers cherry-pick the very best talent. The price job seekers bid reflects their true proficiency for those skills. This eliminates résumé spam by filtering out unqualified candidates. VR thus enables specifically targeted search for talent and opportunity just like AdWords does for products and services.
Whitetruffle – Whitetruffle is a platform for matching and connecting curated companies with curated talent. Startups join our community, and get introduced to great engineers interested in them. “We’re the eHarmony for talent!” I hate the name of this thing and the list of eharmonies for talent is a long and undistinguished one.
