Jobboard Finder’s opinion
Summary: With 1.14 million views a month (only half of which actually comes from the Ukraine), EuRabota is definitely a successful job board in the Eastern European region. It was founded in 2007 by three women, Tamar Frapova, Emilia Khabapova and Galina Solntseva, who continue to run the site, allowing jobseekers and recruiters from all over Europe to connect in one place. Social media isn’t really their strong point, even if it is updated regularily. Lists of jobs are posted on Twitter for 108 followers and on Facebook for 538 followers. There are only 72 followers on VK but there is a surprising number of people signed up to the YouTube page (424) to see the videos.
Design: You couldn’t get a more straightforward design: the homepage is simply a list of job offers (the featured ones are green). The main list features all of the job offers, with the green promoted ones first. At the bottom of the page, there’s another list of the most popular job offers of the week (which indicates how many people have applied to each one). Featured jobs don’t have posting dates but they have star ratings instead. You can view all the adverts, just the agency offers, just the company offers or just the jobseeker requests. There is no search engine and no filters, but you can look up job offers by country or by sector. Some of the job offers don’t even tell you what the job is and the description doesn’t go into any detail on the actual requirements either. The descriptions are usually very brief and other job offers from the same company/recruiter appear underneath the open offer (you can bring them all up by clicking on the person’s name). If you are on the website and new jobs are posted, it directs you to them. There is an unusual list of contact details for different recruiters (a mix of e-mail addresses and phone numbers).
The job board objective: EuRabota wants to give everyone to opportunity to find work or employees in Europe.
Recruiter observations: Recruiters can advertise through the website or look through the jobseeker requests. Some of them provide contact information but even if they don’t, you can write to them through the website. You must indicate the country in which you want to work (and that appears in the listing).
Jobseeker observations: You don’t actually create an account. You can apply to offers or simply put yourself out there and request work.
The job offers: there are 1 139 828 adverts, most of which are in Poland and most of them are for construction or other services. There are also many job offers in the “other” category.
Special features: The YouTube videos; the Russian keyboard (to write the job description); the immigration sheets; the (live) statistics on the users and the activity; the articles (nothing new since October 2018, but it looks very interesting and international); the number of applicants (for each job offer); star ratings for featured jobs; the list of contact details; the popular jobs of the week.
Verdict: Clearly, some of the job offers are dodgy, but I liked the simplicity of EuRabota. You can find jobs and jobseekers from all over Europe, as well as useful information on different work regulations.
