Jobboard Finder’s opinion
Summary: Created in 2008 by Adrien Ledoux and Nicolas Lombard, JobTeaser focuses on universities and companies to ensure young talent finds its way in the workforce. This somewhat specialist job board may be present in a number of countries, but it clearly targets the French market. It attracts an impressive 1.8 million visits a month. Even if there are many language options, some of them are only available on the homepage and it can be a bit confusing to find information on the company. It is there, but the footer isn’t the same on every page. Originally, the idea was to give students a glimpse into the companies through videos. The site has come a long way since then but their social media strategy has changed over the years. There are only 874 followers on YouTube and practically none on Facebook or Twitter.
Design: The site has a dominantly green colour and no search engine on the homepage. Instead, you have text explaining the different things the site can help you do, next to an image of young people: explore, discover, learn, etc. At the top of the page, you can click on a number of sections. Let’s start with the companies. The company pages appear in a grid, which includes a logo, company name and the type of company for each profile. They are sorted by “relevance” (whatever that means) and you can refine your search with a keyword, sector or type of business. You can see if there are offers or events before opening the profile. Once opened, a company page typically has a description, multimedia (videos of the team discussing their jobs), key figures, their values and current job offers. In the job listing, publication dates, logos, the type of contract and location are visible. Some offers are listed as job offers of the week and the filters (keywords, type of contract, function, location, sector, type of company, contract duration, start date, experience, remote work and languages) remain at the top of the page. Companies are free to structure the job offers as they see fit. Finally, we have the job files. In this section, you can filter the files by sector (see special features). This can help learn about the different professions out there and it includes salary averages. You also have advice (so, a blog) on this site.
The job board objective: JobTeaser wants students to know “We’ve got your back” and strives for transparency to help students find the right jobs.
Recruiter observations: You must contact the team for a demo.
Jobseeker observations: To apply to job offers, you need an account. Your university must be in their list of universities and schools. You are redirected to a career page for most of the offers.
The job offers: There are 20 232 job offers. Most of the jobs are in Industry/Food/Chemistry.
Reactivity: The team answers quickly through the pop-up contact box.
Special features: The YouTube videos; the presentation video; the timeline; the key figures; the “Meet Our Team” section (including videos for each team member, job offers and information on the different divisions); the company news; the job files (which include current offers, a short description and videos of real professionals in the jobs – there are also suggested job titles); the events; the advice section (no dates on the articles); following companies; the recruiter blog (with dates); the app; the interactive map of their partners around Europe.
Verdict: I felt bad taking off any points for this job board. Having to contact the team to create an account can be a bother for recruiters and no pricing information is also a drawback. That said, the team goes above and beyond when it comes to transparency and neat tools. Whether you’re a recruiter or a young adult starting out in the workforce, you have to visit JobTeaser. It has gained visibility but it has also lost followers on social media.
