Insourced Job Search Reaches 200,000 Job Listings Benchmark

Nationwide job board Insourced, which celebrated its one-year anniversary on Labor Day, has recently added job listing number 200,000 to its job search application.

I'm currently culling through posted jobs manually on a regular basis, removing those that are flagrant abuses of our system and all jobs that are of questionable value

Insourced, a nationwide job board and employment portal for job seekers, employers and recruiters, has recently added the 200,000th job listing to its proprietary job search application. The jobs listings are provided both from free employer postings and from crawled content.

Unlike most vertical job search engines, the Insourced job search application includes jobs only from primary sources and direct hiring agents and never includes job listings from secondary job sources or other job boards. All job postings are free for employers, staffing agencies and recruiters, and job seekers have direct access to the hiring contacts for each job listing in the Insourced jobs database.

According to Michael Wist, Director of Content for Insourced, "We're pleased to have reached this threshold so early in our application's development. We're also happy with the job crawling process and at the response we've received from employers who are posting jobs to our system." The jobs currently in the Insourced database are refreshed daily and have been compiled from over 800 employers, roughly 200 of which have signed on with Insourced to post jobs directly to the system. The Insourced job board allows employers to post jobs individually or to upload them in bulk via a proprietary XML format that offers a great deal of flexibility.

Despite the validation that has come from the number of jobs that have quickly been posted to Insourced, and the overwhelming response received from employers posting jobs, the focus of Insourced remains on posting only quality job listings. "I'm currently culling through posted jobs manually on a regular basis, removing those that are flagrant abuses of our system and all jobs that are of questionable value," notes Wist.

Matt Blevins, Director of Marketing for Insourced, goes on to say that "We need to strike a balance between job seekers and employers, of course, but we've always stated that our primary goal is to keep our job search application free of illegitimate jobs and scams. We may occasionally remove a job that an employer feels is legitimate, but we ultimately feel that doing so leads to a better job board, which in the long run is in the best interests of both employers and job seekers."

With an influx of new jobs and new visitors to the Insourced web site, Insourced principals have encountered an unforeseen benefit. According to Blevins, "The large number of job seekers coming to our site each day has led to some great insight regarding the mindset of job seekers, including popular industries and markets. From what we've witnessed, there are some definite areas that are most popular with job seekers."

Insourced offers jobs in every major industry, from manual labor to healthcare and from personal services to computer engineering, and in virtually every market in the U.S., including very small markets in sparsely-populated areas. Notes Blevins, "We've got coverage everywhere, but it's clear that candidates are looking heavily for IT jobs and government jobs and the market for Atlanta jobs and Las Vegas jobs is clearly booming."
