One of the biggest problems that many of the mega-sized online job boards have is that they aren’t specialized enough. Whether you’re looking for a job or you’re looking to make a hire, generic listings boards usually aren’t efficient when it comes to searching for a position or an employee a niche field. Authentic Jobs is attempting to remedy that problem by creating an online career site devoted exclusively to helping those in the web and creative design professions.
From an employer’s perspective, paying a set price to post a job announcement on Authentic Jobs is a worthwhile investment. Because job postings are being targeted specifically at those in your particular field, you can rest assured that any applicant responses will be from qualified professionals with previous experience working in your industry. In addition, the exclusive partnerships that Authentic Jobs has formed with more than 20 industry-specific websites ensure that even more people will be able to see, and respond to, your job announcement immediately.
From the job seeker’s perspective, Authentic Jobs provides a simple way to browse both freelance and full-time listings specific to the web and creative design industries. Not only can you sort jobs by category—including interaction design, graphic design, development, mobile, or management—but the site also lets you subscribe to receive personalized notifications when new listings are added. No matter what end of the employment spectrum you’re on, Authentic Jobs is a website that can simplify the job search for those within the web and creative design industries.
