Opcionempleo South America is the online job search engine with the widest presence in south america, sourcing over 40 million job ads from more than 70 thousands quality websites from all over the world. Opcionempleo gives job seekers direct access to an extensive database of jobs, targeted to their needs, in just one straight forward search.

Jobboard Finder’s opinion
Summary: OpcionEmpleo is a Spanish and Latin American aggregator job board, belonging to the CareerJet group. Created in 2002, it focuses on the Spanish speaking marketing. According to Linkedin, the owners of the site are Jean-Benoit Andrieu and Thomas Busch. When you start your search through the site, you are either automatically directed to Argentinian jobs or Spanish ones. As an aggregator, the additional features, like a blog and social media, are practically non-existent. There are 698 followers on Twitter (nothing new since 2013) and another 1 519 on Facebook (but no content). There is no Linkedin.
Design: When you use the search engine without any keywords or a location, one is automatically chosen for you. The homepage is mostly white, with a similar logo to that of the main site, CareerJet, and a minimalistic layout. You can use the different lists (locations and job sectors) to find relevant job opportunities. Once in the job listing, you can sort the offers by the salary, date or relevance. You can also use the filters (the location and the type of contract) to find a job. Other viewing options include viewing only new jobs or “easy to apply” offers (which aren’t just taken from other job boards). Similar jobs appear under an open offer but none of the offers have any particular branding.
The job board objective: OpcionEmpleo (which means “employment option”).
Recruiter observations: Job offers stay on the site for 45 days. You can order ad space online, but you need a tax number.
Jobseeker observations: Many job offers redirect you to either a different job board or the company website. For the job offers with an easy application form, you need to fill out a short form of information, attach a CV and you can write a cover letter.
The job offers: There are job offers from all over Latin America. Argentina and Spain have the most job offers.
Special features: The list of companies (and the number of job offers); the popular searches page.
Verdict: Like most aggregators, OpcionEmpleo lacks personality. That said, Spanish-speakers will be happy to find jobs in their language all in one place. Recruiters can easily post their offers for Spanish speaking jobseekers to see.
