All in one solution

Pros

Loved that this product was all-inclusive. No need for additional products other than a domain name and email. I set up Stripe for payments, filled out the details, and could move on to sales and service within a day.

Cons

The price is far more than a blog or Wordpress plug-in. The deciding factor is whether your job board will be profitable enough to justify the costs. I've taken the chance and am enjoying the time saved on maintenance so far to focus on running my business.

Better Job Platform Than Most and Always Improving

Most importantly: Job seekers visiting our site powered by SmartJobBoard.com consistently tell us they like how easy it is to navigate and perform searches. We tried several other solutions prior to implementing SmartJobBoard and found this optino to be the simplest to get up and running with easy to use admin and posting tools. SmartJobBoard is available at various price points which has allowed us to grow into the product which is an ancilary solution to our core business offerings. SJB is always improving with new features and has been kind to entertain and implement several of our feature suggestions. SJB has plug and play integration with Indeed, Jobs2Careers, ZipRecruiter, JobG8, TopResume, GoogleAnalytics, On the social media front: SJB has a fully integrated Facebook job site app that is more stable and reliable than others we've tested. (Related Tip: If you are working with a job-board or talent marketing tech vendor which claims to have a solution to host your jobs on Facebook yet their own company facebook page doesn't feature this tool - be prepared to do some thorough testing) I was pleasantly surprised SJB's Facebook app is truly plug and play ready in the middle and top tier accounts. SJB is worth checking out and offers a free trial. If you have complex third party integration needs, definitely check with the SJB team before getting in too deep. As I understand it the platform is available in both a hosted and self-hosted option - we have encountered some limitation to desired integrations with the hosted version largely given. SJB powers hundreds of job sites as I understand it... If there was one wish list item I'd love to see from SJB - it would be a Facebook group or similar crowdsourced user community to network and share best practices with.

Pros

Our team is tech proficient enough to be dangerous and perhaps high maintenance at times. Support team is super responsive and patient with our inquiries.

Cons

Lacks function to create job templates - each post is created from scratch via browser or can be uploaded via CSV/Excel file.

Overall a great fit!

Overall, we had a great experience with SmartJobBoard.

Pros

Overall we enjoyed our experience with SmartJobBoard. The process of inputting job listings was pretty straightforward and although limited, the customization options for adjusting the look of the website to match our branding was more than sufficient. It was very straightforward to import job postings via a CSV file. Our users appreciated being able to set up job alerts as well!

Cons

Overall we didn't have many dislikes about the software. Ultimately, we decided to shift our strategy and discontinue this offering, but we likely would have continued using it.

Was Fantastic before changing business model

After spending time, energy and a lot of money to customize the software our market, we had to start from scratch which also cost time and money.

Pros

I had previously given this software 5 stars (2016). At that time you could purchase the software, host on your own server, have complete control to customize or even pay them for customization. We even received regular updates to the software (very reasonable fees). However, they stopped supporting that product and forced users to use their SaaS model where everything is hosted on their site with their limited customizations.

Cons

The part about not being able to download the software to use as you need. You cannot customize more than the limitations they offer. I am sure this is fine if you just want something easy and do not intend to grow. I had used their software and paid to improve it for three years and they change business models.

Reasons for Choosing SmartJobBoard

Now, there is little reason to select this software. The alternatives were a better solution for us.

Response from SmartJobBoard

Replied January 2021

Thanks for your feedback, Peter! We understand that having the self-hosted software copy with ability to customize it may seem like a preferable solution sometimes. However, we've found that the hosted (SaaS) option eventually provides much more value to job board owners and users. And the user engagement data we collect from our customers confirms that. Our mission at Smartjobboard is to provide the best job board experience for admins and end users. And we believe that this can only be achieved with the SaaS model that we currently use. First, it allows us to provide more frequent updates which we do automatically for all our SaaS customers. Second, it's just not possible to offer some of the cool features that we've recently developed as a part of the self-hosted solution and only possible to provide in our unique server environment optimized for job boards. Let us know if you'll be interested in learning how our SaaS solution may significantly improve your job board.

We were #1 job board, 14 days after launch!

We did an extensive search to identify the various alternatives to establish a jobs platform. This process included reaching out to CTO’s around the country to independently gauge opinion on the options (quality, price, ease of use). This due diligence led us to select Smartjobboard solution to establish JobsInOrtho. We launched JobsInOrtho on November 2, 2020 and within 14 days we were the #1 Orthopaedic Job Board in the United States, this would not have happened were it not for [SENSITIVE CONTENT HIDDEN] and his team and the Smartjobboard solution. The customer service component of Smartjobboard was, and still is, critical to our ability to create such a platform that is providing significant value across the United States. Kudos to all the Smartjobboard team for their vision and for having created such an invaluable option for organizations that wish to establish job boards in a cost efficient and scalable manner. The simplicity and the value of Smartjobboard are game changing not only for our company but for those we serve (job seekers and employers). - Michael R. Gagnon, MBA Founder & CEO, Academic Orthopaedic Consortium Founder & CEO, JobsInOrtho Chief Administrative Officer- Emeritus Duke University Orthopaedics

Pros

Great value for the price. It's easy to utilize, it's easy to post jobs, it's easy to find jobs. We were able to aggregate all of the jobs onto a single platform using this technology. Job seekers and employers both love the simplicity and functionality of the platform.

Cons

Nothing. We liked everything! Our users are also loving it.
