Jobboard Finder’s opinion
Summary: TouristikCareer is a specialist job board available in a number of countries. TouristikCareer is part of a bigger group called HotelCareerGroup, which has other job boards focused on different industries, all relating at least slightly to the hotel and tourism industry. It is mostly for luxury hotels. The job sites look similar only they have different dominant colours. This one is blue. According to EasyCounter, about 550 visitors go to the website each month. The social media is a bit hard to follow and to find though: there is an international Facebook page with 6 456 followers but no updates since last year, another Facebook page for HotelCareerGroup with 30 399 followers and finally, a HotelCareerGroup LinkedIn with 359 followers.
Design: The sole focus of the homepage is the job search, even though the job board also has a blog and a press section. The search engine (keywords, location and the radius) appears above different search suggestions, companies of the week and featured jobs. In the job listing, the filters (language, the professional group, the sector, the location, the rank, the type of hours and the publication date) help refine the search (and indicate the number of offers per category). There are no logos but you can see the publication dates. You can also see the number of stars the hotel has. Once opened, the job offers are broken down into clear sections, including a contact section. Company pages are mostly a list of job offers, unless employees have rated and reviewed the place.
The job board objective: TouristikCareer is present in a select number of countries to ensure more holiday resorts and services can reach out to as many relevant candidates as possible.
Recruiter observations: Recruiters can find the list of prices by clicking on the “why us” section. However, to actually order anything, they must contact the team.
Jobseeker observations: It’s easy to create an account.
The job offers: There are 2 332 job offers. The oldest offers are from the end of last year. The most popular categories are holiday resorts and cruises.
Reactivity: The team answers very quickly but they prefer to talk over the phone.
Special features: The app; the job alerts; the blog (which is the HotelCareer blog); the press section (nothing new this year); the courses; the companies of the week; company reviews and star ratings (for different aspects of the company); salary calculator; salary information; the job fairs; information on working abroad.
Verdict: TouristikCareer is very similar to HotelCareer and GastroCareer. It does advertise different positions to its partner websites, but it doesn’t have great visibility. Luckily, certain positions can be featured on all three sites.
