Jobboard Finder’s opinion
Summary: Bumeran is a generalist job board present in Agrentina, Mexico, Peru and Venezuela. The headquarters are located in Argentina. Bumeran was created by Navent in 1999 and has definitely come a long way since then. Despite a drop in the visibility, it remains the second most visited job board in Peru with a whopping 2.15 million visits per month (which has remained stable for years). The founder and current CEO of the group is Nicolás Tejerina and you can find more information on the team and the timeline on the Navent website (but not on the Bumeran site). On social media, the group has about 121 400 Twitter followers, and another 354 476 on Facebook, 270 818 on LinkedIn and 3 760 on Youtube (but it’s been a year since they posted a video). The social media is for all the different country portals. The social media is for all the different country portals. When you click on the LinkedIn icon, it doesn't lead to a page.
Design: The logo, which was a clever combination of a tie and a magnifying glass, is now more like a boomerang. From the moment you enter the job site, you are in the thick of things. The search engine (keywords and the location) appears at the top of the page and job offers fill up the rest of the homepage (but it takes a while for the page to load). You can even use the filters (the publication date, the location, the zone and other filters:the povience, the level in the country, the type of position, where you work from, the salary and disability-friendly jobs). The offers can appear in order of relevance or newness. Some companies are featured too. In the job listing, the offers appear in a list on the side, with one open in the middle of the page. Featured job offers are in yellow above the others. Some offers have logos and the disability-friendly jobs have a wheelchair icon. As for the company pages, it’s really just a logo and a list of job offers for most of them. Companies can also opt to redirect from Bumeran to their own career page. Information, which would usually appear in the footer, is available thanks to a menu on the side.
The job board objective: Bumeran (which mean ‘Boomerang’) is an unusual name for a job board, since it implies you’ll be coming back. You have to see it in a positive light: recruiters and jobseekers will be returning because the service is so great, not because the hire/job didn’t work out.
Recruiter observations: To advertise, you need a fiscal number (RUC), but you can create your advert through the site without contacting anyone if you have one. The prices are on the website. Recruiters can include additional questions for candidates (the question options are included in the form).
Jobseeker observations: It’s easy to create an account but you do need a desired job in mind. When you apply to job offers, you have to specify your salary expectations.
The job offers: There are 21 485 job offers right now. Some offers are featured above the others.
Reactivity: You can contact the team through WhatsApp according to the website, but we couldn’t find the number.
Special features: The app; the disability-friendly job offers; the blog (with articles as recent as last week); the preselection options.
Verdict: Bumeran is at the top of the list when it comes to job boards because of its simplicity and efficiency. The name implies partnership and returning recruiters/jobseekers are important to the team. In Peru, the traffic alone speaks for itself as to its popularity and outreach.
