Locally focused social networking site for job seekers is offering incentives for people willing to test-drive their site.
Austin, Texas, January 19, 2012 -- Jobosabe.com, (pronounced jah-bo-sah-be) is going into beta this week and looking for job seekers who would like to test drive their new platform. The locally based social Jobworking “Talent Community” is going live shortly in major markets around the US. Partnering with major newspapers, the website will deliver a social networking experience that is primarily focused on local jobs, local employers and local candidates.
Traditional Social Networking sites are large, cumbersome and nationally/globally focused. Many personal profiles contain information and photos that may not shine the brightest light on your employment credentials. Innocent things can often be misread by prospective employers and may cost you your next job. Trouble is, you won't even know it. You just won't get the job.
“One of the biggest challenges for job seekers is that their social networking life online can also be a major distraction or hindrance during a job search. Employers troll major Social Networking platforms looking for reasons to hire or not hire prospective candidates. Jobosabe.com is a place where you can direct employers to your profile and connect with other job seekers to share leads and ideas. It is totally business and employment based.” Noted Carl Braun, Jobosabe.com co-founder. “You can lock down your other Social Networking profiles to only trusted friends and use Jobosabe as your employment profile.” He added.
The first 1,000 Beta testers will be given a FREE resume review and guidance on how to find that next great job. A $99 value. You only need to go to Jobosabe.com, enroll and build out your employment profile. Early adopters will have a chance to create and administer “Talent Discussion Communities.” Employers will have a chance to create free “Opportunity Zones” and post jobs through Jobosabe.com or their local newspaper.
