JobNob provides employees with a new, improved resource to gather information and find work. The site is entirely dedicated to the act of searching for a job. To empower the worker, JobNob provides detailed information on upcoming career-related events, job searches, salary information, and other valuable details. JobNob is a one stop source for anyone that is looking for a job or considering a switch. Through the features and JobNob community, the creators hope to create a place for users to find the best available jobs through start ups.
JobNob was created by Alan Shusterman and Julie Greenberg in 2008. The site was intended to provide a board for posting and searching for “alternative compensation” jobs. These are generally positions where full time work is not available or a feasible option. Greenberg has a decade of experience in finance, business development, and leadership careers. Shusterman has spent the last 15 years in the area of technology. They have combined their knowledge and experiences to create the tools and community of JobNob.
JobNob isn’t just another list of classified advertisements. The site provides real information to keep workers up to date on the job market. The postings are focused on less conventional positions, where standard full time work may not be an option. In these cases, the company is able to get the help they need and fill the position while the employee is able to earn a paycheck that otherwise might not have been available to them.
The JobNob website features a colorful design that doesn’t over do it. A white background helps tone down the blue, orange and yellow elements incorporated into the rest of the site. The menus are well organized and users can find all the main navigational tools they need right on the JobNob homepage. A grey navigation bar stretches across the top of the homepage, allowing users to quickly access the areas they need.
Anyone that wants to create a JobNob account can begin by clicking the white “Register” link found across the top of the homepage, in the grey navigation bar. The user is directed to the registration form, which asks for a name, email address, password, profession, location, status and whether they are a jobseeker or a company looking for jobseekers. After agreeing to the terms and conditions, the user can click the gold “Signup to JobNob” button at the bottom of the form. Once the information has been submitted, the user can begin building their JobNob profile and searching for work, employees or information.
A new user can create a JobNob account at no cost. The site does not list a premium paid account at this time. Although there are a few helpful features, no word is mentioned as far as whether future plans to include an upgraded account option are in the works. For now, anyone can stop by JobNob, create an account, browse information, or look for work.
Anyone that is looking for a job, looking to fill a position, or considering a career change can appreciate JobNob features. Although the site isn’t really geared towards finding full time work, the user can supplement their current income or test the waters in another industry before making the final jump into it. Small businesses and start ups can also benefit from JobNob by posting their available, hard to fill positions for the users to browse and possibly submit an application.
