Innovation That Matters

Job sites for high earners | Update

Advertising & Marketing

Judging by the response to our post last week on TheLadders, high-end job sites are blossoming around the globe. A few more for your consideration: Dallas-based RiseSmart, which just recently launched, bills itself as a human-powered job search service that prescreens online search results for time-starved job seekers. First, RiseSmart’s search engine scours myriad job sites for opportunities that match the job seeker’s criteria. Next, a dedicated, human “RiseSmart Concierge” sorts through the results to arrive at a list strongly matched to the candidate’s profile. New results are gathered and presented to members weekly; the cost is USD 54.95 per month. In Australia, meanwhile, Six Figures is gearing up to launch this month with exclusive access to six figure opportunities and more relevant information up front, including salary and benefits. Six Figures will also enable members to present and sell themselves beyond the usual resume, including the ability to upload videos, links to personal blogs and community site profiles. Membership for job seekers will be free. Finally, while we’re at it, we’d be remiss not to mention two contenders that have been in the business since the 1990s: 6FigureJobs, which offers thousands of prescreened postings for jobs paying USD 100K and more, with free membership for job seekers; and Netshare, which works with a network of more than 7,500 recruiters and corporate HR departments and charges membership fees of USD 40 monthly.
