Jobboard Finder’s opinion
Summary: BulJobs popped up in Bulgaria back in 2008 and one of the current managing partners is Deyan Sultov. Other than that, there is no information the aggregator on the website, nor is there https:// security or terms and conditions. That doesn’t stop the website from receiving 320 840 views a month. It also has some social media followers: 121 on Youtube, 226 on Twitter (no updates since 2016) and 13 921 on Facebook (which is updated). The “About BulJobs”, “About the search engine” and “Conditions” sections are empty. It’s no surprise then to see very little information in the Youtube videos either: they are nothing if not direct. Of course, simplicity in advertising can be a great quality.
Design: The mostly orange homepage features the aggregator name, the search engine (keywords and locations) and different categories to choose from. Oddly though, the number of job offers at the top of the page is just an old photo, the sum of the category offers makes for over 15 000 job offers, the sum of the company jobs is less than 300 and if you go through the search engine, you only get about 300 too. In the job listing, you can filter the offers by the date, the position, the employer, the region, the job portal and the company/ HR agency. You can see on which job boards the offers appear without opening them.
The job board objective: BulJobs hopes to retrieve all the Bulgarian jobs around the internet and display them in one convenient location.
Recruiter observations: It is not possible to create an account but you can advertise, and the posting is free! We couldn’t find our advert once it was posted though.
Jobseeker observations: As a jobseeker, all the offers redirect you to another page and you cannot create an account anyway.
The job offers: On the homepage, it looks as though there are thousands of job offers for a number of industries, but the general search tells a different story (less than a hundred job offers on the site). If we go on the homepage, there are about 15 000 job offers. If you look through the companies, there are less than 300. Manufacturing, engineering, retail and sales are the top industries.
Reactivity: It took them a little over a day to write back, but they were helpful.
Special features: mycv.bg (which is their CV database).
Verdict: BulJobs is surprisingly active in Bulgaria. Some of the information is missing, other information is wrong. That said, the offers are there and if you really can post for free, there’s no harm in that.
