Niche job board myCNAjobs.com has a new look which I really dig. Its one of those “micro-niche” type job boards that focus on one type of job. In this case, Certified Nursing Assistants (CNAs). They just introduced a new “badging” system for their job seekers. According to the article;
For those on the job hunt, the latest release from myCNAjobs allows caregivers to earn badges for caregiver training achievements and standout for their willingness to work in various positions, including live-in caregiver jobs. Employers can find the badges displayed on caregiver profiles, allowing them to filter the workforce to find a qualified hire.
I think giving badges to job seekers is a great idea that most any niche site can copy. Its another way to keep seekers engaged on your site as well as providing employers with more trustworthy candidates.
And I love the new look of this job board. Its beautiful. I especially like the zip code search function. When you have a job board with only one type of job you only need to provide a way to search by location since the job title (aka keyword) is always the same.
