Jobboard Finder’s opinion
Summary: Trainee-Geflüster is a specialist job board focused on internships. Created in 2008, one year after its mother site, Absolventa, the group of job boards was later purchased by Funke Medien Gruppe, a large media group, which has existed in Germany for a number of decades. Trainee-Geflüster is part of a group of partner job sites to Absolventa: Azubi and Praktikum. Other partners include Arbeitgeber Ranking (for company ratings). All four sites have the same maze logo in the tab in different colours (Trainee-Geflüster’s one is light blue). Slightly less successful than Absolventa (but that is also because it currently has less to offer), the job site attracts 93 270 visitors use it per month. As for social media, the only available link on the page is to a Facebook page with 820 followers and no updates since last year.
Design: The homepage appears relatively bare, except for an image of a smiling girl above the search engine (keywords and location); some suggested categories (including the number of offers per category) and featured companies. There is actually a lot of information on the homepage, but it is spread out (nothing like a Chinese website!). In the job listing, jobseekers can see the logo, the job title, the company name, the location and the publication date but they have few filters to choose from: sector, location and career level. Companies can customise their job offers, but the “apply” button remains clearly at the bottom of the page, so the application isn’t confusing. At the top of the page, an employer listing is also accessible. The company logos and names appear in a grid and the numbers of current job vacancies are also visible. You can even look for a specific company profile. On the company profile, not only can you see information on the company and current offers, but most of them also have multimedia, the company benefits, the awards, social media links and contact details. If someone from the company has been interviewed, a link to the article can also be made available.
The job board objective: Trainee-Geflüster targets students and recruiters looking to hire recent graduates for internships
Recruiter observations: Recruiters must contact the team for any information.
Jobseeker observations: Jobseekers are usually redirected to a career page or form to apply to job offers.
The job offers: Currently, 165 internships are advertised on the website. Most of the offers are in management, IT or sales.
Special features: The candidate and recruiter interviews; the list of internship salaries by industry; the blog (no publication dates, in different sections); the key figures; downloadable CVs, cover letters; the recruiter newsletter.
Verdict: Trainee Gefluster focuses on internships and not all kinds of student jobs. It’s similar to Absolventa, but not quite as good (as far as job offers and information goes). That said, it really depends on what you want. The two sites offer different CV templates.
