More than a year and a half ago I launched JobSpeek. The first app ever to let recruiters posts jobs from their iphone and syndicate them to the major job search engines.
It won much praise from industry analysts and such. In fact the YOH Staffing blog called it the ‘future of recruiting’. But even though it was cool technology, it was too cool for most recruiters who are still used to doing things from their PC. It did have a small group of loyal users, it did work, as we documented a number of hires with it.
But a recent bug in the app caused me to think twice about spending money to fix it. With the launch of my new social resume startup CareerCloud, I just dont have the time or passion for it anymore.
Plus the fact that it doesnt generate any revenue. I never spent the time to enable the pay-to-post feature. I think it would have worked but it would have taken too much time and energy.
Therefore I’m closing it and will attempt to sell off any assets. If you are interested in buying the app source code or the website, drop me a line.
Knowing when to shut something down is important. You dont want things to linger to long and get stale. Move on to new and better things. Learn from your failures.
