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 Chile is unknown. 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 Chile has over 1500 followers. There are 196 691 job offers.
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 and some featured companies (a lot of which are not hiring). 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). The possible sections are the salary, the zone, the required experience, the gender and the hours. Information about the company (location, sector, openings, logo) is available on the right-hand side, with very little emphasis on the employer. Lastly, adverts appear in the middle of the job offers, which can be confusing.
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 isn’t 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 (even if you are redirected to another job board or application page). 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: According to the website, there are thousands of jobs in all the fields, with sales and IT jobs at the top of the list.
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 job offers aren’t esthetically appealing and the visibility is not available on similarweb.
