Jobboard Finder’s opinion
Summary: Are you ready to launch your career? Well, that’s what MyJobSpace is hoping to offer New Zealanders: a new way to find jobs. The 100% Kiwi-owned job site belongs to Academy Group and was created in 2006 by Gary Collins. On social media, there are 4 765 followers on Facebook, 234 on Twitter (nothing new since 2017), 357 on Instagram and 245 on LinkedIn. That might not sound like much, but the team does keep the pages updated and the traffic is steady: about 78 300 visitors a month.
Design: On the homepage, you can see the rocket logo above the job board name and a backdrop of stars, all of which points toward a space theme. The search engine (keywords, category, region, salary range, employment type) is in the middle of the page. You can be sure the featured companies are hiring because the number of job offers appears under the logo. Featured jobs and other sections on the site are also on the homepage. Once in the job listing, the filters are region, employment type, company name, category, country and salary type. If you click on the logo of the job offer, you’ll visit the company page (which includes a company description). If you click on the job title, you’ll bring up the additional information. Useful information (like the job views and the publication date) appear at the top of the page. Multimedia appears on the right-hand side.
The job board objective: My Job Space aims to develop the most user-friendly job site for jobseekers, and the most cost effective job site for employers.
Recruiter observations: the prices are online. If you wish to create an account, you can. A website, video and logo can all be included (for free) in the profile.
Jobseeker observations: To apply to job offers, you don’t need an account. You can simply send a cover letter and CV to the company.
The job offers: There are 9 889 job offers online. The categories with the most job offers are Healthcare, Trades & Services and Construction.
Special features: Testimonials; the blog (some of the articles are very short and others are quite long); chat support.
Verdict: My Job Space is a quirky Kiwi job board, which appeals to the locals. There is some stead competition in the country, but My Job Space does all right. It’s so easy to create an account and the layout is user-friendly.
