Jobety is a simple job search engine intended for web developers and designers. The user can begin their search by entering a few relevant keywords and providing a desired location by city name or zip code. Jobety shows the user the best results that match their inquiry. The user can also filter results by date posted, which includes today, last week, the last two weeks, last three weeks and the last month. A second filter allows the user to sort by distance, with 10, 30, 50 and 100 mile increments. The job listings provide the user with the name of the position, location, company name and a short snippet of the job description. Clicking on the job posting takes the user to the website that is currently offering it. This includes similar websites that also offer job searches.
Jobety was founded in April of 2011. The website is intended to provide a simple job search tool for individuals in the field of website design and development. The user could specific a few basic details, such as a keyword and location, then further narrow down their options with distance filters. Jobety aggregates its results from other career websites. The application is still new and currently in a beta status.
Jobety.com was deadpooled in 2012.
Jobety offers a service that is really not terribly original. There are many alternative websites that offer the same service focused on tech jobs. Many of these have also added a list of helpful features that assist job seekers in their search. Jobety includes little more than a few filters. The application is still in beta so it is possible that more features could be added later to help it stand out among the competition.
The Jobety website welcomes users with a very clean, eye-catching design. The black background is contrasted beautifully by a dark blue logo with an elegant font. The center of the homepage features the logo above two search boxes. The first asks the user for a keyword related to the job they are searching for while the second asks the user to provide location details such as a zip code or city name. The search results page utilize a similar color scheme, with filter options along the left hand side and the results featured at the center.
A new visitor can begin using Jobety right away. They only have to fill out the two search bars provided at the center of the homepage. The application does not offer a log in option at this time. In reality, there are very few features included yet to warrant a user account option. This may change later on after Jobety is released, but for now users are not required to register to search with Jobety.
Jobety provides a very simple service, and one that is currently offered through many other websites for free. The creators would have a difficult time charging a fee to use Jobety, especially considering how watered down its feature list is currently. For now, anyone can use Jobety for free. There is no registration option and no subscription fees required.
Jobety may be able to help users in the design or development fields locate employment. The application does not offer all the extras of other similar websites, so users may prefer to turn to Jobety as a supplementary resource.
