Jobs in Pods

A New Kind of Job Board

So many of the job descriptions on the usual job search engines have made me react in one of two ways: I've either lost interest after the third line or I was so turned off by the cheesy "ALL-STAR NEEDED" in the ad title that I didn't even open it. And if the job description does sound intriguing but the company is unfamiliar, there's still pivotal information missing and a company's website can only get you so far.

An engaging type of job board that may provide even more information to a job hunter is an audio job board. The first of its kind, called Jobs in Pods, features podcasts, or "jobcasts," from different employers. The blog's site says their jobcasts offer insight into companies like what it’s like to work for them, job benefits, and what kinds of candidates they seek.

I think this sounds like it could be a great tool for job hunters to get more of a glimpse into prospective employers, and it couldn't be more convenient. You can download the podcasts on your iPod and listen to them on the ride to your current job — hey, multitasking! Love that. I think this may be a trend that more employers will use as part of their recruiting methods to attract the best candidates.

That is a great idea! I hope it'll still be hot when/if I have to do the job hunt thing again.
