Trovit Asia Presentation
Trovit is the leading search engine for classified ads in Europe and Latin America.
Trovit will help you find the most interesting ads published in thousands of classifieds websites, saving you the time it would take you to surf all those pages. To make it even easier, you can set up your own personalized alerts for your searches and Trovit will alert you when there is a new ad that might interest you.
The word Trovit is derived from the Esperanto “to find”. Trovit’s mission is to help Internet users easily find the home, car, product or job that they’re looking for. This is achieved by aggregating results from the all the classifieds sites in each market, allowing users to obtain a complete overview of the market with just one search. Aside from the core search functionality, Trovit provides value-add features such as salary information, email alerts, price statistics and mobile applications.
Jobboard Finder’s opinion
Summary: Trovit is a job aggregator, now based in 53 countries; but it could also be categorized as a classifieds website since they specialize in advertising homes, car, jobs and sometimes products. Depending on where you are, Trovit doesn’t necessarily reach as many people and you can’t always be redirected to other job boards. These countries only use Trovit as a search engine: Hong Kong, Indonesia, Japan and Vietnam. Furthermore, some Trovit websites aren’t working at all in the Asian region: Singapore, the Philippines and Thailand. In most of the Asian countries, Trovit is virtual unknown.
Design: The layout is very similar to Google’s, which makes sense because they aim to offer a similar service: gathering information from all over the web relating to specific topics and helping fit the adverts into organized sections. A few pop-ups, but they aim to keep that to a minimum.
The job board objective: Simplifying job searches. There is a huge emphasis on understanding the users and the data that helps stay on top of what the people want.
Recruiter observations: --
Jobseeker observations: Being able to access many job offers from all over the web in one location makes Trovit a mini-Google.
The job offers: The large array of jobs are sorted by the profession, the region, the contract and the work hours (full time/ part time).
Reactivity: No posting on Tovit available in Asia.
Special features: Personalized alerts for job searches, centralization of different classifieds and job offers, personalized web addresses for each version of Trovit (depending on the country), icons to help navigate around the website .
Verdict: Don’t bother.
