Jobboard Finder’s opinion
Summary: LesJeudis started off as a series of IT exhibitions in 1998, with Cedric Barbier at the head of the idea. In order to assist IT professionals more efficiently, lesJeudis.com was born the following year. Soon, the IT specialist job board will be celebrating its 20th birthday and considering it joined the CareerBuilder group on its 10th birthday, news alliances could very well be on the cards. We already know that LesJeudis and ChooseMyCompany have become partners, which means that their job sheets will now include reviews from employees, interns, jobseekers and clients. Exciting. On their various social media pages, LesJeudis has 5 167 followers on Twitter, 530 on Linkedin and 4 926 on Facebook. The job board currently has about 342 870 views a month (80% of which are from France).
Design: The patriotic colour scheme (most noticeable in the right-hand corner) dominates the homepage, but other colours are used for the rest of the website (the blog is purple, for example). The featured companies are hiring on the homepage are really hiring but you don’t have to start your job search just yet. You can one of the many skill tests, look through the popular searches or read some of the many articles on everything recruitment and IT. If you’d rather find work straight away, then you can use the search engine (keywords and locations) and then the filters (the publication date, the type of contract, the salary, the region and the city) to narrow the search. You can also choose to view only “simplified application” offers (which really just means you aren’t redirected to the company website). In the offers by job and offers by technology sections, LesJeudis suggests some keywords. Through the offers by company, you can access the company listing (444 companies), which appears as a grid. In the job listing, the important keywords appear for each job offer. Each one includes a job description and the required conditions.
The job board objective: LesJeudis (which means “Thursdays”) wants jobseekers to make it in IT.
Recruiter observations: Recruiters must go through CareerBuilder to create an account.
Jobseeker observations: Jobseekers can do tests (with a delay of a month for retrials) and publish them on their profile for recruiters to see. Unfortunately, the website doesn’t give you the correct answers (just a score) and an idea of how well you did compared to others who sat for the test.
The job offers: There are currently 4 827 job offers (but that includes internships, freelance work and seasonal work). Most of the job offers are for full-time work with a permanent contract.
Special features: The French flag in the corner; the blog; job sheets (which include the average salary, the recent job offers, the top paying cities, the top schools, the years of experience required and a detailed explanation of the job); le jour J (D day) for a recruiting event back in 2016; the many tests in English (including ActionScript, 3G Networks and Product Owner quizzes); the test results; the feedback options; the upcoming events; the exhibitions; the dramatic unicorn; simplified application.
Verdict: We loved the skill tests, especially for the IT field. The website design is simple but modern and attractive. The job sheets are a great asset for jobseekers, graduates, students, etc. Two thumbs up from us!
