Hi all
Looking for a bit of inspiration here, especially from you guys outside the UK.
I'm actually in the process of developing a job board for both candidates / clients+recruiters, which will be a fully functional, no holds barred jobsite.
If any of you deal with any job sites from a recruiter/client point of view, then even better - but just wondering:
1, which job sites to you use when seeking employment or candidates?
2, what specifically do you like about them?
3, what annoys you about them?
4, what sort of things don't you see that you'd like to?

by "job site", i mean anything that either deals with generic full time employment, freelance work, etc but not recruitment agency sites. not looking necessarily for anyone to hand me a design on a plate here, just doing a bit of research before getting stuck in.

cheers
Mark

From a job-filler perspective - no spell checker.As a prospective employer I want to see just how well people can spell when left on their own.

From a job-seeker perspective - less BS. If the job is to get the coffee, walk the dog, etc. don't call it 'executive assistant' call it 'gofer/gofette'.

No more 'salary negotiable' - it's never above what the employer thinks is tops. No more 'salary commensurate with experience' - if what you're prepared to pay is $10/hour then say so!
Legend has it that reading the manual never killed anyone.

you're right. not sure how i'd vet the "less BS" one, as the jobs would generally be written by the agency/client. as for the last point about negotiable salaries, i agree - although i'm guilty myself of this. kinda screws up a specific job search when someone's main motivator is money when the money is not specified. good shout.

any particular sites that spring to mind for you?

Not me. I've been in the same happy rut for 30+ years, and in a fairly specialised business where 'recruiting' is pretty much word of mouth.

www.monster.ca is a 'biggie' in Canada - you might find some features there that you can adapt or improve on.

yeah monster is the job site - probably the google of jobs - monster.com is a worldwide thing and also goes as far as powering easyjobs.com (the easyjet/easygroup people) and other job sites. i do like the informal image they portray and they do have some good stuff on there so definitely a few lessons to learn from it.
