Jobboard Finder’s opinion
Summary: Created in 1998, K12 JobSpot belongs to Frontline Education and was recently relaunched for the spring recruiting season. The specialist job board in teaching has indeed changed its entire design: from the colour scheme and the logo changed to its services. Indeed,K12 JobSpot and the school administration software provider now have similar designs and share their social media: 2 425 followers on Facebook, 7 743 on LinkedIn and 1 458 on Twitter. After a drop a few months ago, the site is now building up its traffic. It currently has 180 100 visitors a month on average (practically only for the US). Teachers-teachers now leads back to K12 JobSpot.
Design: The search engine (keywords and location) is the only thing you see when you first access the site. To actually view the offers, you need a keyword. To filter the offers further, you can include a grade level and a job type. The offers appear on the left-hand side, next to an open offer. No logos are visible, only the job title, the school name and the publication date. If you type in just a location, nothing comes up so it must be malfunctioning. An open job offer displays the job certification, job type, start date and a description. Other than the Help Centre, there aren’t any additional resources on the page.
The job board objective: K12 JobSpot aims to improve the education system by making it easier to hire employees and find jobs.
Recruiter observations: To recruit through the site, you must request more information.
Jobseeker observations: Jobseekers need an account to apply to offers.
The job offers: There are thousands of offers on the site, mostly for teachers. Once you have an account, you can access the company listing (which includes filters) and even the job listing layout is clearer. This is because the site because Teacher-Teacher.
Special features: The key figures.
Verdict: K12 JobSpot is useful for anyone hoping to hire teachers or apply for teaching positions in the US. More filters and an improved search engine would definitely help develop the site. More branding and extra resources could definitely be a big help to recruiters and jobseekers alike.
