Jobing.com : Job Search Sites Review

 

Founded in 2000, Jobing.com is currently one of the largest job board sites in the country. Its unique approach allows job seekers and recruiters to focus their search in selected metropolitan areas. Currently, the site serves all 50 states and aspires to make your search easier via local targeting.

With over 15,000 employers registered with this site and a huge number of local jobs posted, Jobing.com can be a great resource for job seekers or recruiters. They also supply a great deal of specific information about prospective employees, making acceptance of a job offer much easier and much more likely.

Job Seekers

Register with jobing.com without paying a cent. A free account provides you with access to their job search & apply tools, job-alerts sent directly to your e-mail, social network integration, free profile posting and more! They also provide a ton of information about individual employers. This includes things like videos, employer blogs and even job searching advice given directly from the employers.

  • Registration

    Singing up via their online form is a cinch. Enter your name, e-mail and location; confirm your email and you are all set. We highly recommend you start your experience with jobbing.com by developing your profile and posting a resume. It’s up to you whether to post it as a private or public resume, but keep in mind that only public resumes are accessible to potential employees.

    Bearing in mind that there are more than 15,000 employers registered with the site, a public profile can offer you a significant opportunity to get noticed. And if you’re about self-promotion, we recommend using keywords in your resume that prospective employers are likely to use when they search.

  • Searching
    Search through the job listings with a number of options. These include keywords, location, industry, or even employer. Results provide you with the job title, a link to the full job description, the location of the job and the company name. You can even view the location on a google map plug-in. Most job offers provide a direct link that allows you to apply directly through the site, or with the help of LinkedIn, or OneWire.

Employees & Recruiters

To post jobs and search resumes, you’ll need to purchase postings by quantity. A single job ad posting price will depend on the metropolitan area chosen. The flat rate for each job post is $175 per post. Simply add the number of job-postings to a google-checkout shopping card, and get started. There are also bundled packages available; call the office for further details.

With the purchase of any job posting, you will also be able to search the resume database. Certain packages also allow for additional features to help screen and contact qualified applicants.

Special Features

As a job seeker, you will also be able to sign up for regular job listing emails. These will be targeted and tailored to your preferences and criteria, delivered straight to your email inbox. There is also a multitude of career advice available. This mainly takes the form of articles and informative tips provided directly by employers.

If you would like more help with your resume, then consider signing up for their resume service to have yours professionally critiqued and edited. This is certainly a great way to get a leg up on your competing job seekers.

We especially appreciated their mobile compatible site, easy to use widgets, RSS directory and free resume builder. All great features accessible to all.

Support

There are many contact and support options available to members of the site. For starters, there is a direct email address, available with a fairly quick turn-around time for response. There is also a local telephone number to the main office in Phoenix, Arizona. You may also feel free to check out the frequently asked question page.

Bottom Line

This site represents an interesting concept in job searches. By sticking with local searches, candidates and jobs everything is more highly targeted than a national general site. There is also a number of good features and tools for both employers and job seekers to take advantage of.
