A while back I wrote about some job sites that I thought were ‘cool’ – in other words, unusual (in a good way), well designed, and ‘of a piece’. I’m always prowling for new ideas and different ways to tackle our industry’s challenges – so when I find a site that’s different, I want to share. Thus, without further ado, here are the latest round of cool job sites:
Genotrope: Uses an ‘affinity’ engine to match candidates to companies based on skills and cultural fit. Very cool visual graph that shows a company’s connections to other companies. Matching tool + graphics + nice design = cool. (URL: http://www.genotrope.com/genotrope/)
Superscout: UK-based free site imbued with social networking hooks. Follow employers, engage and promote, just be a Web 2.0 kind of job seeker. Nice look + good social media implementation = cool. (URL: http://www.superscout.com/)
College Recruiter: A good example of an established site giving itself a very smart visual and functional overhaul. Good social media integration + solid design + logical organization of LOTS of content = cool. (URL: http://collegerecruiter.com/)
DoNanza: Another freelancer/work-at-home site – but with a twist. Any site owner can grab the DoNanza widget and display the site’s jobs on their own for a cut of the revenue (ala Jobamatic). Now why don’t more job sites try this? Good design + out-of-the-box marketing = cool site. (URL: http://www.donanza.com/)[Want to get Job Board Doctor posts via email? Subscribe here.].
