A score that highlights the best job sites

We believe it is our duty, as experts of the online recruitment market to share with you all of our knowledge , and even the most complex data. To give you even more support with your recruitment research we have scored each job board profile.

A rating out of 10 appears in the results page and at the top of each job board profile. The score is automatically attributed without human intervention.

What are our assessment criteria?

Our ranking system is based on 4 key criteria:

  • Certification: A certified audience is always a plus for a job site because it makes figures more legitimate. In case there is no certifier, we agreed that having traffic measured by SimilarWeb is still an asset. At Jobboard Finder we think certification is important and we want to encourage all job boards around the world to go through this procedure.
  • Completeness: For a job board to be published, they should fill out required fields in their profile such as rates and traffic figures. We also encourage job boards to complete the non-mandatory fields because it provides further details about products or marketing strategies that can be of use to recruiters. A good job site understands what recruiters need.
  • Updated profile: Updated job board profiles are always better for recruiters and jobseekers eager to access current traffic figures and rates.
  • Ranking: Each job board is compared to similar job boards and ranked accordingly. Given that a recruiter wants to know the ranking of a job board in its own market, and at a local scale, we defined a market as a coherent group of job boards within the same geographical area and specialty and ranked our job board partners according to the traffic figures provided by SimilarWeb, a global leader in digital measurement and analytics.

The scoring system is updated daily. If one of the above criteria has changed in the last 24h, the score is updated. A job board profile can get 10/10. If this is the case, whatever the cost, we assure you it is worth buying it!

The best job boards are selected and referenced in our index

A complete job board database

Since our creation in September 2013, we have sorted through over 3000 job boards to bring you the top 1000 from over 100 countries.

Our filter criteria are: a sufficient number of vacancies or candidates registered in the database, up-to-date information and job offers on the websites, as well as a professional customer service. We deliberately excluded non-professional job sites and websites where the employment section is only an additional or secondary service.

The media selected by Jobboard Finder are requested to provide very detailed information. Many mandatory fields enable recruiters to conduct research on similar and objective criteria. All the information is then manually verified by our team including as the number of job listings and even the breakdown by function or sector.

A drastic process

Audience figures and strategic information provided by job boards are carefully verified. We make sure the information is correct on the websites of their certification authorities, and ask for screenshots of their media data source etc. Then we can add the tag “All evidence provided allowed us to check this job board stats“ to their profile.

A job board that does not supply enough guarantee in terms of reliable informaiton and exacitude will not be published in our index.

Jobboard Finder is updated every day with new information or data. None of this data is automatically published: it is verified and moderated by our team. The whole process takes less than 24 hours.
