Jobboard Finder’s opinion
Summary: Created in 2000, eFinancialCareers is a DHi service based in London and the leading financial job portal. For a time, it belonged to FINS.com, which was created by Dow Jones in 2009, but FINS became a part of DHi in 2012 and now redirects to the eFinancialCareers specialist job board. If you visit the DHi website, it is more focused on showcasing Dice than eFinancialCareers unfortunately. And if you check out the “About us” section, “it’s actually about you” (cute, but uninformative). Luckily, there is also an “Editorial Team” section, with detailed material about staff (one member has actually left according to Linkedin). According to SimilarWeb, 80 050 visits are recorded per month for the French portal and that’s just one of 19 countries in which the job board has set up shop. On social media, there are 178 413 followers on Facebook, 30 480 on Linkedin and 5 626 on Twitter (for all the websites). It is one of the leading financial career job portals.
Design: There are no particular “business” photos, but the website doesn’t need them to display its professionalism. The search engine (keywords and location) is at the top of the page. Strangely enough for a job board, more than half of the page is full of articles (first news, then advice). The bottom half of the homepage focuses on the job search with an explanation of how to use the site, popular job sectors, jobs for your and jobs by company. When you access the job listing, you can use the filters (the posted date, the sector, the position type, the employment type, the experience level and the salary range – numbers for each category are in brackets). In the list, the salary, location, contract hours, company and updates date are visible (but no logos). The featured companies aren’t necessarily hiring, most of them are though.
The job board objective: With a focus on finance, eFinancialCareers provides its users with intuitive articles and relevant job offers.
Recruiter observations: In the recruiter section, there are additional articles. To actually post a job or to create an account, you need to contact the team or request a call back. Oddly enough, the recruiter section is not https:// secure.
Jobseeker observations: It’s easy to create an account and upload a CV. Their resume parser makes it lets tedious to fill out the online form. You do have to complete what’s missing though and change your CV status to visible.
The job offers: The sectors with the most job offers are IT, accounting & finance and asset management, but many other sectors also have hundreds of job offers. The sector information is the same on all the portals. There are currently 14 999 vacancies on eFinancialCareers France (872 Jobs are actually in the country). Some job offers are as old as 6 months old.
Special features: The job offer views; the job offer applicants; the news and advice articles (quite interesting); CV visibility status.
Verdict: Something about eFinancialCareers feels very impersonal. That said, the articles are interesting and the job offers are clear, so it’s worth using if you are in the field of finance. There are articles in French and English.
