There must be something in the water because I received an email late last week announcing a new International Job Board (in Beta), recruit.net which covers Australia at australia.recruit.net, along with Japan, China, Hong Kong, Singapore and India. What is really interesting is this seems to be a vertical search play!
I really like the Browse Jobs feature which provides a Refine Your Search option that tries to pick Keywords from the selection of jobs, sort of a “drill down” function in job searching. This feature would be excellent if it worked correctly, it seems especially poor when browsing by Industry. I tried Australia > Human Resources > Director of Human Resources. Many of the jobs listed either reported to the Director of HR or required you to apply to this position.
Once again I think this might be a case of trying to be smart but actually ending up being a dumber for it. But if the bugs can be worked out the feature will rock!
Now if we can combine all of these great new features into a single board I think we are onto something.
