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 pretty significant drop in the visibility, it is still a very popular job board in Venezuela (listed as number 4 in the country for recruitment and employment). Most of those visits are local. 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). The social media is not listed on the site but there are general pages: 121 100 Twitter followers, 354 489 on Facebook, 271162 on Linkedin and 3 770 on Youtube (but it’s been 11 months since they posted a video).
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 bit of 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 (RFC), but you can create your advert through the site without contacting anyone if you have one. The prices are on the website and you can post for free. Recruiters can include additional questions for candidates (the question options are included in the form).
Jobseeker observations: It's easy to create an account. You have to specify your salary expectations when you apply to job offers. You also need a desired job in mind when creating the account.
The job offers: There are more than 2 510 job offers right now. Most companies still require you to go into the office (or on site). Most jobs are for senior positions.
Reactivity: To find a number, we recommend you go through the Navent website.
Special features: The app; the disability-friendly job offers; the blog (nothing new since 2020).
Verdict: Bumeran is great for its simplicity. The good news is you know you are reaching Venezuelan. The bad news is the activity continues to drop and it is difficult to find a contact number or email. Furthermore, the political situation in Venezuela remains rtense.Read the full jobboard Finder review
