Jobboard Finder’s opinion

Summary: Seek and you shall Finn, and by that, I mean, “find”. Created in 1996, Finn used to be partially owned by to the Norwegian newspaper, Adresseavisen, until they sold their shares to Schibsted Media Group (90,01%) in 2010. Polaris Media also owns a part of the shares (9,99%). Who wouldn’t want a part of the action of a classifieds job board, which is the 5th most active website in Norway and gets 48.6 million visits per month? They have 223 444 followers on Facebook, but they seem to have forgotten about the 6 464 Twitter followers over the past few months. As a classifieds website, they offer all kinds of services, but job offers is part of the oldest sections, created in 2000. They have invested in TV adverts, like the “kan kitten, kan du” ones, which are rather cute to watch.

Design: The jobs homepage is mostly white with a bit of light blue, and it features some recommended jobs and some company profiles. To access the job listing, you can use the search engine or click on “all jobs”, “companies” or “manager jobs”. You can view the offers in a list form, a grid or on the map. Each job offer has the company name, the logo (Finn can also provide an image but it is rather rare), the job title, the publication date, the location and the number of available jobs. To help find the right position, you can use the filters (the publication date, the job, the industry, the location, the type of contract, fulltime or part time, the sector and the top positions, with the number of jobs in brackets) and you can display the results in order of the most relevant, the most recent, the employer (which doesn’t really seem to put them in any particular order), the location or the closest offers. A job offer indicates the job description (which takes up most of the page); the deadline, contact information and “follow this company button (on the right-hand side); about the company, keywords and similar jobs (at the bottom). Company pages usually include photos, videos, available jobs and the number of followers.

The job board objective: Find exactly what you need on Finn, be it a job or an employee.

Recruiter observations: Depending on how many adverts you would like to post, you need to contact the website to create an account and for pricing information. Otherwise, you can create an account easily. By becoming a Schiebsted customer, you also become a customer of a number of big groups, but you do need an organization number. They offer easier payment solutions like EID payment but you need to have a Norwegian or Swedish phone.

Jobseeker observations: It is very easy to create an account and to upload your CV. They ask many questions (your current or last job, for example) but you do not need to answer them. For some job offers, you are redirected to the company website.

The job offers: Among the most popular searches, you have “summer jobs”, which gives you an idea of what kind of jobs to look for. That said, Finn is good at branding and has job offers in a variety of industries (the construction, health and sales industries at the top of the list), no older than about a month.

Reactivity: They respond within an hour or so (in Norwegian).

Special features: the icons; the JobMatch; the map; the “kan katten, kan du” adverts; company following; the “at Finn, you will find everything, except this page” message.

Verdict: Considering the website’s popularity and the vast range of job offers in all of the industries (except maybe the artistic fields), Finn is an obvious advertising choice when in Norway.
