Cool – now what is that, exactly? To me, it means unusual (in a good way), well designed, and ‘of a piece’. In other words, if it’s different and hangs together, or approaches the job board paradigm in a different, effective way, it’s cool!
So here are a few job sites I think are cool:
Not surprisingly, by and for designers. Nice, simple design + a specific feature for its audience (creative portfolio) = cool. (URL: http://www.krop.com)
AuthenticJobs: A site for web designers and creative types. Good design + open API + owner who invites collaboration = cool. (URL: http://www.authenticjobs.com)
WorkinSports: A site for interns thru middle management positions in the sports world. Unusual in the niche world – candidates pay, not employers. Distributed revenue stream + clean design = cool. (URL: http://www.workinsports.com)
How about it? Do you have any nominations for a cool job site?[Want to get Job Board Doctor posts via email? Subscribe here.].
