Jobboard Finder’s opinion
Summary: Laborum is a Chilian job board (present in a handful of other countries), which has been putting locals in touch with relevant job offers since 1999. It is also present in Peru. In 2014, Navent acquired the site, helping them dominate yet another market. Now, the page design is exactly the same as the Bumeman sites. It is one of the top job sites in the area, attracting 905 750 visits a month, which is a pretty significant drop from 2 years back. On social media there are 91 300 followers on Twitter, 175 165 on Facebook, 14 700 on Instagram, 2 300 on Youtube and 272 683 on LinkedIn.
Design: The homepage is mostly red and white, and the layout is straightforward. You are right in the thick of things with a list of job offers, including logos, the beginning of a description, publication dates, You can change the portal country by selecting a country at the bottom of the page.If you need to cull the offers, you can use the filters including the zone, the salary, the type of position, the publication date and keywords.
The job board objective: Laborum (which means “jobs”) targets the Chilian market to ensure everyone finds work.
Recruiter observations: Recruiters can recruit for free.
Jobseeker observations: It is easy to create an account; your location is required.
The job offers: There are currently 36 458 job offers on the site. Sales, other and logistics are the top sectors.
Special features: The blog (with some very recent articles); the YouTube videos; coaching.
Verdict: Clearly Laborum is doing something right; It is successful arcoss the South American continent and the information is easy to access. However, it's a bit of a shame that the site now looks exactly like Bumeran because it has lost its originality.
