The idea of BeKnown with the network in the network seems a little bit like brunchOut, and job offers are also there. But otherwise the Monster app solves a problem that many users have: How do I match a private profile with a private fun photo and the professional appearance as a job seeker?
Business profiles in Facebok
Sure, there are Facebook pages where you can join professionally. The disadvantage, however, is that you can not actively add contacts and can not receive / write messages. For the self-presentation of enterprise still ok, but for contacts with the personnel department of the desired worker not.
With BeKnown, you can now create your own profile with a professional photo for a professional appearance, send and receive messages, manage your professional contacts, search for jobs, and even which ones. There is also a social referrer program, with which one can forward jobs.
Disadvantages of the network in the network
Actually a super thing. What bothers though: You have the contacts just not in Facebook - but in the Monster app. That means that all business contacts need not only be on Facebook, but also on Monster - this minimizes the selection considerably.
And: The idea comes a little late - namely, at a time when Google+ is seriously preparing to compete with Facebook. But maybe there will soon be the network in the network.
And another career network - this time for experts
And another database, a kind of social network for career experts. "Not one more thing, we do not need it!" Was my first impulse. But then I took a closer look - and was thrilled. The specialist search could become a real trend.
Careerexperten.com is a high-caliber network of professional career advisors and business coaches. The database was created by career expert Svenja Hofert and PR consultant Uta Nommensen.
Sophisticated search functions
In contrast to previously known networks, Kariereexperten.com offers prospective customers the opportunity to find and find specialized job consultants by topic. The subject areas range from Casting through professional counseling, burnout, bullying, reorientation, outplacement, student coaching and potential analysis up to the application photo.
Furthermore, a regional and gender-specific search and a search for experience degree are possible. Svenja Hofert says: "In my opinion, the journey is on: you have burnout experts or experts for bullying or English applications or .... I think that "I'll do it all" has had its day. "
What really convinced me, however, is the professional design of the site and the social media integration: The career experts themselves can tweet their entries at the same time and post on Facebook. Selbstredend, Karriereexperten.com also has its own Facebook page http://www.facebook.com/karriereexperten as well as a Twitteraccount http://www.twitter.com/karriereexpert.
Consultants also have the opportunity to include their own books, blogs, Facebook and Twitter accounts. The additional entry of contributions is therefore no longer necessary, updates are automatic. And: the social media functions provide a comprehensive and up-to-date picture of the chosen consultant.
Comprehensible, functional, for consultants not quite cheap
What I like well: That the homepage of the latest blog posts by consultants are displayed. There is also a consultant hit list, the books and appointments of the consultants are presented. And the whole thing looks very tidy and clear. For those who are looking for a suitable consultant, so a big plus.
For coaches and consultants, the entry is not free: 46,41 Euro costs the basic entry for a year, which includes 1 Photo, 1 Link, 3 categories and a short profile of maximum 300 characters. After all, this is cheaper than a Xing account.
Whoever wants more pays more
If you want more, for example, the already mentioned complete social media integration, 224,91 pays Euro per year. And a company entry costs again good 100 euro more.
But you can also find it in an illustrious circle: After all, the network already has six members of 40 members!
