Throughout September and October 2008, I used to be an energetic person of the Experteer.com premium subscription and that is my sincere suggestions and evaluation on their providers.
DISCLAIMER: I am not affiliated in any option to any recruiting firm, job portal, HR agency or Headhunter. The ideas shared listed here are simply from my private expertise. Any suggestion relies simply on my opinion and nothing else.
The online / Usability… OK
Generally I must say that I am happy with the usability of the positioning. Filling the varieties and coming into the info of your profile is simple and intuitive. The superior search criterion and extra filtering capabilities are certainly very cool. The online allows you to refine search outcomes by wage, km away out of your base metropolis, Nation and a scoring system. It doesn’t have as many options and prospects like Monster, however I’d say It is OK.
Publicity to headhunters… Actually?
One of many issues they promote is that Experteer is the place the place all headhunters in Europe come to search for candidates… Properly, this could be true or not, however the one factor I can inform you is what occurred to my profile: It was seen 1 (sure, one) time by a headhunter through the 2 months of I used to be subscribed to their service. Simply to make clear, I had 100% of my profile accomplished (so there was no excuse to exclude me or down-rank me as a result of my profile was incomplete). If there’s something they should work on, I’d say is that this level: they should get extra recruiters/headhunters to make use of their service.
Entry to “hidden” presents…NO
One essential factor is that they don’t have entry (a minimum of in my expertise) to unique or offline job alternatives; in different phrases, every little thing it is possible for you to to seek out on Experteer is already on-line. This is a crucial clarification as a result of many specialised headhunters, and extra particularly within the 60.000EUR+ job market, do have positions which can be both unique for them or usually are not being marketed.
Entry to actual 60.000EUR+ job presents?… YES
That is certainly one of many few however essential optimistic issues I obtained out of their service: They do have a broad, up to date and actual base of job presents providing salaries 60.000EUR+; not like different on-line recruiters. In fact you can find ultimately some damaged hyperlinks or presents that seem in search outcomes, however have expired, however I’d say this occurred in a small proportion of time. A tough estimation could be that 90%-95% of the presents that seem on their search outcomes are actual, have not expired and are certainly 60.000EUR+ positions
As a conclusion, I’d say that when you have lots of time to analysis (perhaps in the event you’re unemployed), it might not make sense to pay for the premium subscription given that almost all of what you may discover you possibly can discover it your self. However, if you do not have a lot time or maybe are nonetheless employed, you may not get unique or presents however it can save you a while researching… and in the event you’re incomes greater than 60.000EUR per 12 months, it might value a strive for 25EUR a month.
