Jobboard Finder’s opinion
Summary: As the website indicates, CV Keskus was created by two “entrepreneurial schoolmates” in Estonia in 2000. It quickly became one of the leading career portals so, in 2003, the two also launched CV Market in Latvia and Lithuania. Only last year, the generalist job boards were purchased by Ringier Axel Springer Group. Today, the website attracts about 260 570 views a month and those numbers are currently rising. On social media, the group has a solid presence with 8 594 Facebook followers, 589 on Linkedin, 318 on Draugiem and 2 822 on Twitter. Most of the website is available in Latvian, Russian and English.
Design: The job board design is the same as that of CV Keskus: 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: team work, work for students, only job offers with the salary, work for adolescents. 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 Market targets the Latvian and Lithuanian job market in a quest to make it easier for recruiters and jobseekers to find each other.
Recruiter observations: 1 985 407 CVs have been created through CV Market. The form to create an advert is straightforward but if you fill in a section incorrectly, it doesn’t tell you which one it is. When browsing the CVs in the database, you can see the age, gender, job category, job title, the desired location, the education level, the last position and the language of communication of the jobseeker.
Jobseeker observations: You don’t need an account to apply to job offers, but you do need a CV. When creating an account, you need to include your last profession, your title, your gender, your mother tongue. You can hide your age and/or your gender though. When someone views your CV, you recieve a particuarly excited message about it.
The job offers: With about 20 130 job offers on the website at the moment, CV Market has more than 10 000 more offers than it did in January. “Services” has by far the most job offers, followed by assistance and administrational jobs.
Reactivity: They answer very quickly and are quite friendly.
Special features: The long list of past surveys/polls (with the number of people who answered); 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 surveys; the blog (which hasn’t been updated since August); CV Builder; the free CV database browsing.
Verdict: CV Market is a great website for jobs in service or administration. Very helpful people and easy access to the right information is a good combination for any job board.
