Jobster Enhancements

I was on a conference call today as Jobster unveiled its new offerings. Their's stuff for employers and job seekers in the new site. For job seekers their career profile and ability to "tag" yourself are pretty cool and will help to better match you with employers. If you haven't created your online profile yet, get started now.

SEATTLE--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Hot on the heels of a record January in which more than 1 million unique individuals visited the website, Jobster Inc. today launched the first online career service designed for the digital generation. The new Jobster, which can be found at, marks a major step forward in the evolution of employment websites. Jobster is the first career development website to make extensive use of Web 2.0 technologies to help individuals connect with people, information and opportunities to help them further their careers. In an industry first, the new Jobster offers employers unlimited free personalized job postings, enabling jobseekers to meet the hiring manager or recruiter for a particular position, and immediately presents employers with potential matching candidates.

“We spent the last twelve months designing the new Jobster to meet the needs and expectations of the digital generation,” said Jobster CEO Jason Goldberg. “The digital generation has widely embraced social networking, user generated content and video, and Jobster is bringing these technologies to career development and humanizing the job search process. The digital generation has demanded more efficient business models, and Jobster is committed to bringing innovations to the employment category, beginning today with our unlimited free job postings and candidate matching model.

“We believe that the real value is in matching the right person to the right job, not in the posting of the employment opportunity. Today’s release is a profound expression of our Jobster mission: to help people reach their potential by providing innovative online services that enable meaningful career matches,” Goldberg said.
