A new way for IT people to search for jobs online has arrived with the launch of www.geekjobboard.com allowing users to search by skills rather than job title.

www.geekjobboard.com aggregates job ads from around the globe and enables users to quickly find jobs (sourced from various content partners) that match their skills set and specific location. Content is sourced through various Australian and international job partners, with links providing increased traffic to the partners’ websites.

The unique search function represents a shift in thinking away from the traditional model which is traditionally centred on job titles, towards a more skills-oriented approach, more aligned with the needs of the IT market. This unique search function provides mapping of related categories and subcategories, increasing the likelihood of finding a more accurate job match.

The inclusion of Google Maps with zoom functionality makes it easier to search locations in more densely populated global regions such as Europe.

www.geekjobboard.com is the latest online project by Australia-based Advance Thinking; creators of dcyder.com, the hit social media site for women seeking advice, which is achieving considerable users globally.

“As tech people, my business partner and I felt there was a gap in the market for an IT jobs site using this approach. We’ve started with the IT market, as it is something we know well and of course tech people are comfortable with pushing the boundaries of functionality. However I see this is a model that could be applied to job markets outside of IT,” explains Stu Coleman, co-founder of Advance Thinking.

We currently have listings for over 11,700 jobs across 38 countries and are in the process of developing relationships with job partners around the world,” explains Coleman.
