Jobboard Finder’s opinion
Summary: As the website indicates, CV Keskus was created by two “entrepreneurial schoolmates” in Estonia in 2000. Only last year, the generalist job boards were purchased by Ringier Axel Springer Group. Today, the website attracts about 954 970 views a month in Estonia (making it the 35th most visited website). On social media, the group is mostly present on Facebook with 31 240 followers, but also have 265 on Twitter, 1 260 on Instagram and 1 615 on Linkedin. Most of the website is available in Estonian, Russian and English.
Design: The job board design is quite simple: a dark blue and orange colour scheme with an emphasis on the job offers, which take up the entire homepage. The search engine (location, category and keywords) is at the top of the page and it can become an advanced search (which replaces the filters). You can choose the location, the category, the expiry date, the language, the salary, the working hours, the type of contract and you can tick the following boxes: shift work, work for students, only job offers with the salary, work for adolescents and jobs for people with disabilities. When looking through the industries and locations, you can see the number of job offers for each category in brackets. VIP companies and VIP job offers appear around the screen. If you use Google Translate, some information is translated incorrectly, including the publication date of the job offers. Since there are expiry dates, you can be sure that the offers are updated. They can be sorted by the date, the location, the VIP status or the salary. Standard adverts include a description of the job, the requirements, the benefits and useful information. However, some job offers are customized to reflect the company marketing. If it is a PDF, it is not possible to translate the content.
The job board objective: CV Keskus (which means CV centre) wants to make it easier for recruiters to find CVs in one place, and for jobseekers to apply to job offers.
Recruiter observations: 1 985 812 CVs have been created through CV Keskus. The form to create an advert is straightforward and easy to fill out. When browsing the CVs in the database, you very detailed CV information, but not contact information.
Jobseeker observations: When creating an account (because you need one to apply to job offers), you have to include your last profession, your title, your gender, your mother tongue. You can hide your age and/or your gender though. Your CV can be in Russian, Estonian, English or Finnish.
The job offers: With about 20 282 job offers on the website at the moment, CV Keskus has about 8 000 more offers than it did in January. The most popular categories are customer service, manufacturing jobs, sales, transportation jobs, construction jobs and catering jobs.
Reactivity: They answer very quickly and are quite friendly.
Special features: the VIP job adverts; the recruitment services; the salary checker (which you can only use if you indicated your last salary in your CV); the blog (in Estonian); the CV example; cover letter examples; the free CV database browsing; the close x on adverts; the tests; CV consultations; the job market forum;
Verdict: CV Keskus is a great website for jobs! We highly recommend it if you are hiring in Estonia. Very helpful people and easy access to the right information is a good combination for any job board.
