Jobboard Finder’s opinion
Summary: ChooseYourBoss is a French specialist job board focused on recruiting IT professionals and developers. It also supports start-ups by offering cheaper rates. Created just a few years ago, it attracts 75 190 visits a month (mostly from France) and it has a small following on social media: 1 995 followers on Twitter, 5 445 on Facebook and 523 on LinkedIn. It would be nice to have an “About us” section for more information on the team and better transparency.
Design: There is no search engine on the homepage because the focus is on signing up to the job board. Since the concept behind this job board is slightly different to more generic job boards, the site explains how the matching works. You can view the company pages (the list displays them in alphabetical order), which include multimedia, a map, a description of the company, social media, the current job offers, a logo and the number of employees. If you go to the job listing, you’ll see large logos, useful information, logos for required skills, job titles and the company names. There are no publication dates though. To refine your search, you have filters (sector, experience, type of contract, company, remote work and start-up) and similar searches under the filters (for additional keywords) and names of recruiting companies. Job offers remain on the site for a month at most.
The job board objective: ChooseYourBoss hopes to match recruiters with the right IT candidates based on skills and desired working hours.
Recruiter observations: According to the website, there are 130 000 candidates in the database and the site is responsible for 380 000 new encounters. To create an account, you need a valid SIREN (national business number). You can post your first offer for free. If you fail to complete your page, you won’t be able to open a different ChooseYourBoss page.
Jobseeker observations: It’s easy to create an account with an e-mail address or a LinkedIn account. You must complete your profile to use the site. You need an account to apply to offers.
The job offers: There are 346 job offers on the site. Surprisingly, only three of them are for remote work and only eight are in start-ups.
Reactivity: There is chat support through the recruiter page. The team answers very quickly.
Special features: The blog; the events (both past and future); chat support; the funny confirmation email, the matching service.
Verdict: Not being able to abandon the sign up process is rather frustrating. Aside from that, the site has a user-friendly design, clear logos and interesting offers for IT professionals.
