There are many, many websites out there that allow users to find jobs or hire employees. Some are basic classified listings that offer little in the way of features while others are intended to help users maintain their resume and manage contacts. Despite the saturated market, Jobteria manages to offer up many unique features that stand out. Through Jobteria, employers can monitor and review applications. They can provide ratings that are kept private and allow them to reference later when comparing candidates. A real time discussion feature is also available that allows employers to talk about the employee’s potential or concerns privately. By making it easier to compare candidates and discuss employment, Jobteria allows employers to hire qualified individuals.
The creators of Jobteria were searching for a way to make a socially engaging employee recruitment application. They focused on allowing entire teams to review applicants rather than having only one person access then return with the information. The tools available have made Jobteria a good choice for many employers, who can discuss a candidate privately with their team, schedule interviews, and streamline the hiring process without sacrificing quality. Jobteria.com was shut down in August 2011.
With so many job related websites out there, it’s hard to come up with something new and unique. Jobteria has taken many of the same features and added a few valuable twists. Using the real time discussion, employers can hold private discussions about a candidate with their team. The candidate does not see these discussions and the user can get the input of many rather than making a final decision all on their own. This is even more valuable when the person responsible for hiring may not know the job very well. They can bring on managers or others who handle similar work to share input on the candidate’s qualifications.
Jobteria welcomes visitors with a fun blue and white logo. The site is well organized, but full of personality. Users can quickly find available jobs or sign up all on the homepage. Jobteria is still in beta, but it already offers a user friendly layout and color images that entice new users to give the service a try.
To become a Jobteria member, visitors can click on the green “Sign Up” button found in the bottom left hand corner of the homepage. The registration form is simple, and begins by asking the user if they are looking for work, looking to hire, or both. Next, the user is asked for a username, password, country location, first and last name, and email address. After checking the terms and conditions check box, the user can click the blue “Submit” button at the bottom of the form.

Anyone can create a Jobteria account for free. No premium paid account option is listed at this time. Jobteria is still in beta, so this may change in the future. No further information is provided to indicate that the site will eventually require subscription fees. After creating an account, users can begin browsing listings or posting their own for free.
Jobteria is a great choice for users either looking for a job or interested in hiring. The site provides many interesting options that allow employers to quickly rate candidates and give an entire team the chance to chime in on who they feel would be best suited for the position. Those looking for work can benefit by getting more exposure and the opportunity to be reviewed by a potential employer.
