Jobboard Finder’s opinion
Summary: IT Job Café has been around since 2007, and is based in the US. As a specialist job board, which hosts both its own job offers and ones from other job boards on its website, the added bonus of using IT Job Café comes from the interaction between jobseekers and recruiters. The focus is on IT jobs, and enabling recruiters to find candidates that have specific skills. The site attracts 2 320 views on month and it has a small following on social media (399 followers on Twitter, which hasn’t been updated much, 2 057 on Facebook and 299 on LinkedIn). The founder and CEO, Chand Akkineni, also runs another company, SoftPros, which offers business consulting and technology services.
Design: The homepage features the search engine (keywords and the State), a number of top employers (which you cannot click on and which don’t necessarily appear in the listing if you type them in as a keyword) and lists of trending words: trending locations, trending technologies and trending articles. When you access the job offers through the search engine, nothing shows up. Even the filters (state, city, company, employer type) are empty. For it to work, you must type in a keyword. You can sort the offers by relevance or newness. Job offers are posted for a limited number of days, which means they are updated. Useful information, like the required experience, the location and the publication date, appear in the job listing.
The job board objective: It Job Café aims to make finding IT professionals in the US easier by retrieving job offers from around the net and listing them in one place. The database is also at an affordable price.
Recruiter observations: It’s easy to create an account but you must subscribe for CV database access and to post adverts. The prices are online, but you cannot preview your job offer before paying for it.
Jobseeker observations: To create an account, you must be in the US, since the State and postcode are required. You must add three skills to your profile and a CV, or recruiters won’t be able to find you. Other required fields include your work authorisation, willingness to relocate, commute and questions about your current job. Most of the job offers redirect to another job board (like Dice).
The job offers: There are a number of job offers on the website, but no way to count them.
Special features: The blog; the views on articles (the number of views and the number of people who have viewed it); the search tips (to explain how to use the search engine); IT events (which we couldn’t access); the classifieds (which are all years old, but it is free to post classifieds); the infographics about benefits; the partner services (for jobseekers).
Verdict: The IT Job Café has some interesting articles and cheap access to the CV database. There’s no harm in browsing the website and posting job offers, but the keyword requirements are a bit off-putting.

I am a freelance recruiter and i must admit that benefits i got by using itjobcafe has outweigh the very nominal subscription fee that i have paid my requirement was distributed to other job boards like indeed, ziprecruiter , simplyhired,juju and others which i would not have been able to afford. I got 8 profiles within 24 hrs of job posting
