Jobboard Finder’s opinion
Summary: Created in 2007 by Patricio Gómez Pawelek, Jobomas is multicountry site based in the Latin American countries. On average, the site attracks about 503 000 visits a month, which is alright for the area. A lot of the job boards in the region have a similar colour schemes and similar layouts. On social media, the team is present and has attracted 226 195 followers on Facebook, 13 800 on Twitter, 14 766 on LinkedIn and 1 182 on Instagram (the pages are for all the different portals). The founder of this site also created GrupoJobo and continues to invest in interesting projects and talent.
Design: From the moment you get onto the site, there are pop-ups because it wants to connect you to the local portal. The design seems somewhat outdated and the orange colour dominates. The first thing you see in a search engine (what and where) over the image of a big city. There are some logos just under it, featured jobs and information about the premium account. The offers all have the same layout and very clear information (salary, company name, number of applicants, location, etc.). There are only a few filters (location, zone, company, date) and you can show the info in order of the relavence or date.
The job board objective: Jobomas makes the job search clear and simple. All the important information is broken down with one goal: helping jobseekers find a career.
Recruiter observations: It's free to create an account and there is a CV database to browse. The page for employers is blue and has a much better layout. There are language options and prices.
Jobseeker observations: It's simple to create an account. To apply to job offers, you need one (it can be a with an email or Facebook). For some offers, you're redirected and for the others, the layout is outdated and unappealing.
The job offers: There are over 3000 job offers online for Colombia. Most are in sales, other, finance and admin.
Reactivity: There are two different emails depending on your account. There is also a different email for employers. Though the team answers fast, the emails seem automatic (and are not in English).
Special features: CV reviews; the company emails (only visible for premium members); partner websites (Manatal, MercadoJobs); the job tips.
Verdict: If you're European and recruiting in Latin America, you might find the layout less appealing than what you have back home but it doesn't bother the locals. Giving clear information (especially the salary) is very important and this site helps you make all the essential easy-to-find. An "About Us" section would be appreciated.
