The Good

  • Reach
  • Resources and learning materials
  • Special features
  • Experience
Reach

Just Jobs has 6.5 million visitors annually and is part of a network of 3,000 niche job sites, including relevant niche diversity sites like veteranjobs.net, latinojobs.org, and wehirewomen.com. At the time this review was written there were about 800,000 jobs currently posted, 600,000 of which were new posted in the previous week.

Resources and Learning Materials

"Just Jobs Academy" is the learning center linked to Just Jobs and includes helpful training materials for job seekers. Their Job Search Guide is a step-by-step guide to finding a job, complete with email templates, telephone scripts, cover letters, references, and networking. The guide is interspersed with lighthearted comics that help solidify the message of the text.

The review team's favorite part of the training materials available is a set of career interviews with workers in various fields - some common, some very unique. These interviews provide a job-shadowing-type experience that gives job seekers personal and detailed insights into jobs and careers they may have never considered (or even heard of!). Examples of some of the career interviews are actress, after school program director, emergency room doctor, fundraiser, software engineer, and jailhouse teacher.

Other specific training topics include:

  • writing a value proposition letter
  • making yourself memorable
  • surrounding yourself with a search team
  • working smart once you've landed a job

The downside of Just Jobs Academy is that it has not had new content posted for a few years, so unless content is updated on a regular basis, the information and tips available may not reflect the current job search trends.

Special Features

The articles in Just Jobs Academy include discussion boards where readers can comment and ask questions as well as give advice to other job seekers who post questions. The founder of the company and author of the content, Eric Shannon, has also answered questions through this avenue.

Just Jobs is unique in that it has a scholarship program that awards $3,000 to one undergraduate or graduate student per year. There is no application fee, but the student must be a full-time student when applying and his or her school must be on the list of registered schools.

Experience

Just Jobs was launched in 2009, though the flagship site LatPro.com began in 1997. Thus, the company has almost 20 years of experience in the job search industry.

The Bad

  • Price range
  • Customer support
Price Range

Job searchers may look for jobs online at no cost. However, employers pay a pretty penny for recruitment. The price for just a single, 30-day posting is $159. There are companies that provide much better rates for comparable service. Just Jobs can quote costs to scrape the client's site to post unlimited jobs for a set fee over 3, 6, or 12 months, but affordability depends on the business.

Customer Support

Their customer service could use a little work. Job seekers, employers, and advertisers can seek assistance by submitting a form through the website, and replies are prompt. However, it would be even better of Just Jobs provided a phone number and email address for customer support so clients don't have to wait to be contacted and wonder if their form became lost in cyberspace. Just Jobs does have a Facebook and Twitter presence, but there is little to no interaction with clients and users-and inbox messages to the company go unnoticed.

Additionally, the "refine your search" options for this search engine are lacking compared to other search engines. Users can type in specific words to look for, but cannot categorize search results based on salary or miles from a specific location. The only options to refine a search are title, company, or top search phrases.

The Bottom Line

The company's steep prices may be an automatic deal breaker for employers when they can reach just as many people-at a lower cost-through a different company. But the redeeming quality of Just Jobs is their learning resources, which are unique and exciting enough to benefit even the most experienced-or unmotivated-job seeker.

I'm attempting to submit this review with a 0 star rating, fingers crossed it goes through. (Ugh, and as you can see I couldn't give them no stars, lucky them.) So this site is a load of bull and a waste of time. I highly doubt that any of the job posting are truly real. It is a lie. 1st Lie: The Job Posting - Ex. Amazon (hiring Immediately) $16 - $40 p/h. (These people get paid per click on these disguised links) After you click the job posting you are interested in, it redirects you to yet another FAKE job search engine site where it may, at first, explain to you the position you are interested in. Accompanied with a form asking for additional information; describing such form as a "Quick Apply Application Process" ANOTHER LIE, because it is truly just an email solicitation form, stated in the fine print at the bottom, listed as "Jobs At Home Staffing, New Job Connection, and its partners". After you give out your email to John, Dick, & Harry for solicitation purposes, you are then taken into a freaking survey, and FINALLY once you actually get to the FAKE job posts, you may see the similar posting you were previously interested in, granted you haven't forgotten the main freaking objective, though. That's not it, you may go through this as many times as they can trick you back and forth. One of the redirects fine print, at the bottom of the page, states, verbatim, "To gain access to the job listing, you must agree to our Terms & Conditions and Privacy Policy, provide certain peronally (they spelled personally wrong, these are the type of people we are dealing with here) identifiable information and conset (Yeah they spelled consent wrong, too) to our sharing such information with our marketing partners for which we may be compensated."You just end up at the external depths of the World Wide Web, giving up more information for more solicitation, and wasting more and more time not applying for a job. They should be shut down for false advertising, and while we're at it, lets add in copy write infringement for the use of other business's logos for advertising and marketing purposes. I mean, I don't know if those are the charges associated with this type of idiosyncratic behavior, but I am fuming and would like to give those people a piece of my mind. DO NOT, I REPEAT, DO NOT USE THAT SITE. Unless you like getting all those spam emails along with all of those education continuing, sweepstakes winning, magazine selling calls. I am posting this everywhere. Thanks again Just Jobs that's additional time wasted not applying for a job. (UPDATE: So I have realized that the site actually does not use company logos on their FAKE job postings, that is a way to weed them out. They also list underneath the position title a link such as [Amazon-Flex.careersandjobs.co] which is, presumably, the redirect link to the next step in run around process.) And that is my review on them!
