Ever wondered when the online job searching sites would get out of the “old web” and into a more Web 2.0 kind of attitude? Well, a new site, Jobby, is looking to change that image.
Jobby is a new way to think about resumes that lets you show off your
qualifications and make it easy for hiring mangers to find you. Instead of
digging through job postings and submitting resumes to countless companies and
recruiters, Jobby lets users make their qualifications available in an easily to
Jobby uses a tag cloud-based qualification entry interface, and
AJAX powered search filters based on category, name, level, location, and more.
The search page also lets you subscribe to customized search filters via RSS in
case you don’t find the person you’re looking for right away.
The site combines a solid combination of interface and functionality to create an easy to use kind of user experience. As as hiring manager, you can search on a term and get the results. The real fun starts when you apply filters to the data dynamically. Your list is fine tuned down to a few candidates as you narrow the field in different categories like Location, Business, and Availability.
They’re also working up a system that would allow developers to add a “drop in” script to the page, linking directly to their information on Jobby. You can keep track of this and other advancements they’re making on their blog.
They’re still in a beta stage, but if you’re looking to submit your information as a “Web Geek”, you’ve come to the right place.
