{Study} The top job exchanges & the favor of users in the long-term test: climbers, relegators, newcomers

It seems as if job boards in spite of all prophecies of doom, not to be killed - at least if you follow Gerhard Kenk, since October 2008 in his Crosspro Research user survey job boards and Jobsuchmaschinen subject to a long-term test of users - and now submits interim results again.

What is behind the survey?

Objective His project is to use an online survey of job seekers to collect their assessments, preferences and ratings of job exchanges and job search engines. It should also be determined which functions and areas of use are important to job seekers.

The survey was initiated in October 2008 and is a long-term survey to identify trends in recruiting preferences. The online survey is a joint project of PROFILO Rating-Agentur GmbH and Crosswater Systems Ltd. carried out. Last year we have already reported on the best job markets

  • Crosspro-Research Continuous survey of the best job markets: job search engines and specialists in the front

In the meantime I have also published on the subject in the specialist journal “Personal im Fokus”: Als HR find the right job market

With the generalists, the general job exchanges, which offer job offers for all branches, all professions or all regions, some job exchanges have succeeded in making further progress in the user satisfaction rating.

The newcomers at the job exchanges

Gigajobs.de improved in the year 2012 compared to the same period last year by 0,21 scale points (on a satisfaction scale from 1 = very good to 4 = not good at all).

The job exchange of the employment agency also made up ground and increased its satisfaction ranking by 0,14 scale points, just ahead of the job exchange Stellenangebote.de, which rose by 0,13 scale points.

The newcomers at the niche job exchanges

In the niche job markets, which focus on specific industries and occupations, Absolventa and Hotelcareer have made the most progress in user assessment.

Among the job search machines, the all-rounders of digital recruitment, Kimeta.de and iCjobs.de are judged with most user evaluations over the past years. In the year 2012, iCjobs.de was able to expand the user satisfaction just by 0,05.

Trend towards new foundations unbroken

“The trend towards the establishment of new job exchanges is still unbroken,” says Kenk. I can only confirm that from my experience when I look at the large number of PR inquiries, link requests and the like. One would think that there will soon be nothing more to be gained on the job market.

"Correct," says Kenk, "because the newcomers are not only fighting for job ad budgets for employers, but also for visitor traffic and awareness among job seekers."

Newcomers score points with user satisfaction

In this difficult business environment, several newcomers have scored points in user satisfaction in 2012. These include the T5 job exchange in the area of ​​science and technical specialists and managers, Yourfirm for SMEs and Ictjob in the IT sector.

The search quality and the hit lists generated also play an important role in the judgment of job seekers - the accuracy of job descriptions, hierarchical levels or the geographical area search are particularly important. In 2012, the search quality improved for all three job portal categories.

The Descent

The losers, however, still include the voluntary job boards - as in the results of the survey last year. Overall, they show the least improvement of 2,09 on 2,08.

In contrast, the special job markets improved on average from 2,02 to 1,93. Users of job search engines attest to this genus above average search quality.
