Jobboard Finder’s opinion
Summary: The group is present in over eight different countries in Europe, but is based in the Netherlands. It’s a subsidiary of YoungCapital, which was founded in 2000 and is actually more successful than StudentJob in the Netherlands. As for the Irish version, it appeared on the scene around 2009 but it only attracts about 13 000 visits a month. On social media, there are only 18 followers on Facebook (nothing new since last year) but many more on Twitter (4 523 – the UK Twitter). There are also 5 614 followers on the International Linkedin account.
Design: The design is appealing, with a black and orange colour-scheme for all the different websites. The search engine (keywords and the location) appears at the top of the page, and the rest of the homepage suggests locations, recent job offers and hiring companies. It’s also possible to find jobs based on the type of job (internship, part time, full time, etc.). The same information appears in the job listing and in the filters (the location, the type of employment, the type of work, the level of education and the language skills). There are no publication dates, but if you click on a job that has been fillerd, it shows up as “inactive” and you can no longer apply. If recruiters pay more, it’s possible to order a “top job”. An open job offer is broken down into four parts: what we offer, what we are going toi do, what we ask and extra information at the end (regarding the salary, car requirements, the language requirements, whether a cover letter is compulsory, etc.).
The job board objective: Created by students for students, StudentJob wanted to provide a service that didn’t exist at the time: student jobs in one simple place.
Recruiter observations: You can post of the site for free. When creating an account, the VAT number is requested but not necessary. When creating the job post, the salary is a required field. You also have a minimum number of words for the job description, minimum number of requirements and benefits (3 for each).
Jobseeker observations: Jobseekers cannot apply to job offers without an account. More than just a job board, you can request information on interesting deals, exhibitions, festivals or job offers. If you aren’t redirected, the application process is quite simple.
The job offers: There are 19 jobs on the Irish version of the site at the moment. Most are for promotions.
Reactivity: To send an e-mail, you need to provide a phone number.
Special features: The job alerts; employer tips; the testimonials; application tips; age and employment information; the timeline; the blog (nothing new since last year).
Verdict: StudentJob is a successful and useful site for students across Europe. Unfortunately, in Irelands, recruiters aren’t using it as much as they are in toehr countries to find work. Come on, recruiters! Advertise here!
