Workcircle Launches Job Search Engine for Web 2.0 Crowd

Share Article

New job search engine specializes in providing listings for cutting-edge Internet and web development jobs across the UK and internationally.

Traditional boards are fine if you know exactly what you want to do, where and for how much

Workcircle’s new tag-based online job search engine is out of beta. Developed by Simon Appleton and Tony Jewell, the original founders of PlanetRecruit, Workcircle specialises in cutting-edge Internet and web development jobs across the UK and internationally. Web developers with java, .net, perl and php skills, or web designers with dhtml, javascript or CSS expertise will find the site essential viewing.

“Your average job site is boring and not at all optimised for the high-tech audience,” says Appleton, “the web has moved on, and we wanted to build a site that uses the new technologies to make a real difference to jobseekers.”

Workcircle looks very different from other job search engine sites – a big tag cloud shows candidates at a glance which types of jobs are most popular, and makes browsing for web development jobs and other high-tech offerings very intuitive. “Traditional job boards have very strict categorisation systems: you have to make choices from long lists of job classifications,” says Jewell, “But this can be very confusing for the candidate: am I in management under IT, or IT under management?”

Conversely Jewell believes many job search engine sites have gone too far the other way: “The Google-style keyword-only approach doesn’t work well for web development jobs either. Am I a developer or a programmer? Do I work in web design or New Media?”

Workcircle feels that tagging is the perfect compromise for web development job searches. Select ‘development’ and you'll immediately see that ‘programming’ is a related term. “Traditional boards are fine if you know exactly what you want to do, where and for how much,” says Jewell, “but most people aren't so fixed in their approach to job hunting. That’s where Workcircle excels.”
