Jobvertise reduces ads

Recently we have made a conscious effort to give users of Jobvertise a better experience by removing ads, increasing contact information and better communication.

Our CEO has written a letter which gives a little insight on how our company is run.

You may notice on individual job pages we have reduced the ads displayed by 80%. Our business model does work around advertising, but we have found that smaller, more targeted ads give good results and generic run of site ads just are not worth the trade off as far as cluttering the web site and giving you a good user experience.

Additionally we have provided contact information for our company at the bottom of each job detail page so you can easily contact us at any time.

All of these changes to Jobvertise should benefit you the jobseeker. We hope you enjoy the changes to the Jobvetise web site.

Better search results by reducing spam

When it comes to spamming our database we take this issue very seriously. Spam reduces the overall experience for everyone so we have come up with a proprietary solution to take care of this spam problem.

The idea is that this will increase the job quality on our site, saving you time and headaches paring down irrelevant and numerous postings. A lot of web sites that offer free services eventually have spamming problems, and although this is probably an ongoing battle we feel our job database as improved tremendously.

If you have any questions/comments please respond to this post or send us feedback through our Jobvertise contact form

Basic job interview tips

It is common to feel overwhelmed and stressed when trying to find a new job. If you have been in your previous or current job a long time it's easy to forget the simple things you need to do when interviewing. You need to put your stresses and feelings to the side and put on your best face.

Here's a few basic tips for interviewing. These tips don't have anything to do with your knowledge of the job, etc, just how you present yourself:

  • Make a good first impression - walk in with reason, shake hands, look the interviewer in the eye and using his/her name say it's great to meet you and be considered for the job.
  • Sit up straight (like your mom used to tell you)
  • Smile. Acting grumpy and depressed won't help your chances.
  • Be confident. There is a reason why you are there, so show it.
  • Make eye contact. Looking everywhere but the interviewer won't help you chances.
  • At the end of the interview shake hands, thank the inverviewer for his/her time using his/her name
