Jobboard Finder’s opinion
Summary: Buscojobs is an aggregator job board created in 2007 in Uruguay before spreading to the rest of South America as well as Portugal, Spain and the United States. You can advertise in English but most of the offers are in Spanish and none of their job page portals are available in English. Buscojobs’ activity in Brazil is around 421 960 visits per month. They have no social media links on their website and only 39 000 Facebook users from all the different countries combined felt they were worth following. On twitter, Buscojobs Brazil has 1585 followers. According to the website, there are 832 237 job offers right now, but they aren’t all advertised through Buscojobs.
Design: At the top of the page is a search bar in two parts (keyword and location). Underneath, there is a list of job offers. The order seems to be random (or at least, not chronological). The filters are gender, age, region and job sector or when the advert was posted. In the list of jobs, the job title is emphasized and on the job page, the information included varies (so some offers are very long, some short). Most job adverts are redirected to a different website.
The job board objective: Buscojobs wants to make finding the right candidate (and the right profession) easier for the South American countries.
Recruiter observations: According to the CIU (the Chambre of Industries in Uruguay) website, all the companies that are partners with the CIU are entitled to a 15% discount on their advertisement needs on Buscojobs (but that's not true). For pricing information, you need to e-mail (not call) the website, and to register, you need a fiscal ID number (215520200013 if you aren’t in South America). You can create an account but it takes 24 hours to validate it. Since even the United States version of the website is only available in Spanish, the job board targets Spanish-speaking people. However, you can write to the website in English.
Jobseeker observations: To apply to a job, you need to create an account. You’re often redirected to www.empregos.com.br and some jobs indicate “indeed” under the title. To create an account, you need to be in South America, give your gender and marital status but no CV is needed. However, you won’t be able to apply to any jobs if your profile is incomplete. On your dashboard, the different sections are in a list (not a grid) including your offers, your tests and your CV. Also, you can choose the visibility of your profile (sent to companies).
The job offers: Few job offers were posted less than 2 days old. It doesn’t look like the job offers are deleted once the positions are filled. There are apparently thousands of jobs in all the fields (especially sales and services).
Reactivity: The contact e-mail address on their page does not work but they respond quickly to an inquiry sent through the form on the website.
Special features: Work Profile Test (including feedback about your personality compared to others and job recommendations. You can allow or refuse its visibility on your profile for employers); the Buscojob Office (various offers for companies are available); profile visibility options.
Verdict: The work profile test is interesting, the back office answers speedily and the website appears easy to use. However, the visibility is low and the job offers aren’t esthetically appealing.
