Jobboard Finder’s opinion
Summary: Created in 2008 for students, Jobsuma is a German specialist job board focused on apprenticeships and work experience. The mascot is a purple owl. Unfortunately, the visibility is too low for SimilarWeb to record it and the social media is somewhat lacking: 5 744 followers on Facebook (no updates since 2017), 2 145 on Twitter (no updates since 2017), an irrelevant LinkedIn page and a Xing page. The number of job offers on the website and low visibility had me wondering if the offers were updated regularly.
Design: A straightforward design and a small owl mascot dominate the homepage. It’s so simple that you almost forget you don’t speak German (and that there are no language options). The search engine (keywords, location and the radius) is at the top of the page, followed by top internships, top traineeships, some key figures, attractive company pages and a few categories to choose from for the job search. Different websites are also suggested in the footer. The section on “liberal jobs” doesn’t actually lead to job offers, but rather, job sheets, for those not yet sure about their career path. Thanks to the company pages, candidates can contact recruiters directly since most of them have contact details. Once in the job listing, the filters (type of job and location) are a bit disappointing but the number of jobs in each category appears in brackets, which is helpful. Featured jobs are a pale green and they have logos but no publication dates. The others, have publication dates but no logos. Surprisingly, job offers are very brief and the application process redirects jobseekers to another page.
The job board objective: Jobsuma has collected traineeships and internships and displays them all in one place for jobseekers to find relevant opportunities.
Recruiter observations: Recruiters can post through the Personalcom website for 1 to 3 months (and cannot create an account without posting). You must fill out a form the complete the purchase, but you don’t get to see your job offer first. Furthermore, the fields are not all translated by Google.
Jobseeker observations: Jobseekers create an account on Jobsuma.
The job offers: There are 186 163 job offers online. Most of them are graduate jobs.
Reactivity: The team answers very quickly on chat support (through Personalcom).
Special features: The key figures on the homepage; the career guide (in different sections but no dates); job alerts; the job sheets; chat support (through Personalcom).
Verdict: It’s worth browsing through the offers on Jobsuma and it’s definitely easy to use. However, there are a number of issues (like the lack of social media, the limited information on the company and the job updates), which could make one hesitate when investing in a recruitment campaign on Jobsuma.
