Detailed Description

Update

Jobster, a Seattle-based job-focused vertical search engine. Jobster now brings most Web 2.0 features that you can imagine into the job search space. If Monster is the blue chip job search company in the accelerated history of web services then Jobster is trying to make itself the hip new player.

Jobster integrates social networking elements with vertical job search and targeted advertising technologies to connect users with people, information, and opportunities to further their careers. Unlike a traditional job board, Jobster is not just a single destination. Instead aggregates jobs from across the web.

Leading employers including Boeing, Boston Scientific, Expedia, Google, Mitre, Premera, Samsung, and Veritude use Jobster to post jobs, target active and passive candidates, build talent networks and manage candidate relationships.

Jobster also offers recruiting software-as-a-service that helps employers get beyond the job boards at www.recruiting.com.
