We’re constantly updating JobEngine to provide an excellent user experience. But how does JobEngine team strive to achieve this? Simple. We do the basic addition and subtraction in Math. As necessary, we add features and delimit or subtract some functionality. In our last week’s to-do list, we did both.
We know that many of you have been used to the multi-filter function in Job Categories and Contract Types. And we hope you had gotten only the most out of that feature. Though it’s always great to filter jobs in as many categories and job types as we want, we chose to disable such functionality and opted to apply the single parameter for filters.
Who would want to look for jobs both in Sales and Software Development? This not only saves job seekers a lot of clicks and unclicks; it also gives them a list of jobs that is not confusing due to mixed categories and contract types. Job seekers can choose one category and one contract type at a time, and can easily shift to another in the list without having to wait for long seconds to view the results. Results are loaded instantly whenever job seekers click to change a parameter.
Back to addition…
Who wouldn’t want to know his future employer and which company doesn’t want to tell everyone about itself? So we added “Company Information” box in employer’s dashboard. Employers may use this field to introduce their company to job seekers in a maximum 500-character description.
