Maybe you could consider adding a filter to remove internships? Otherwise the site is rather useless for non-students here.
Good luck with the project, I hope it will be useful for many, even if not for me.
With "in parallel" I did mean breaks, however. Depending on your school, you don't get a lot of those either. This semester my last exam would have been on 4/15 (if it weren't for the current situation), and lectures start again the same day. Admittedly I could have chosen an earlier date for that exam, but even then it would have been 3/23 (this Monday). That would have given me at most three weeks to do an internship, and that's just not worth it for me. Other semesters have been similar.
It is my understanding a lot of schools in the US do trimesters, essentially, so you could do internships over the summer, we don't. Our semesters are half a year each.
Perhaps some filtration based on some simple regex could help get rid of at least the most basic errors? :)
10+ years of industry experience, including 2+ years of management experience leading engineering teams
Typically they wave that error away with an, "oh we just want someone with 5 years of any Windows Server experience, we just happen to use 2016." Quite the double standard.
FWIW, I set up a twitter bot to tweet about new jobs that are posted. Creates a nice bit of traffic. Nothing earth-shattering, but gets the word out there. Might be an idea worth exploring :)
And the bot is here: https://twitter.com/work_with_go
- some of the images on the cards do not load; maybe they're just missing? Would be better to have a more indicative default image in that case
- getting a few CORS related errors and some TypeErrors in the console
- not a massive fan of the logo
- when the loading text is displayed after searching, the main container (jobs-container) becomes small and drags the footer up with it, leaving white space underneath the footer. Should remain a fixed size.
- when no results are found it just seems to hang on the "Loading..." text
- the Apply button does not behave like a normal link. I would like to 1) see where it's taking me when I hover over it and 2) be able to middle-click on it and open a new tab
- is there pagination?
I'm using Firefox. Overall, I like the design and it's a decent idea. Good job!
- Our default company image is a blank gray square
- Will look into the cors error + the other ones
- Yes, lots of revisions are in the works for the next couple of weeks
- Yeah, that makes a lot of sense. I will have those changed
- Pagination is still in progress and should be ready in a few weeks.
Thank you again!
On a somewhat related note, I'm trying to understand what entry-level means. Is it a college grad? Is someone with large amounts of experience who switching to a similar role in a widely different domain entry level? What about someone with years of experience in hobbyist / open source work in a domain, but lacks any professional experience? Are they entry level? What about a long time web developer trying to move to graphics programming or an embedded engineering wanting to move to web development?
Entry-Level, to us, means students, recent grads, career changers, individuals with less than 3 years of experience and so much more. I think those with years of experience as a hobbyist / open source work in the domain should be counted, but many employers only count professional experience. Someone with lots of experience and switching to a different domain may be categorized as "entry-level" in that new industry. And for your last questions, I believe that a person with that profession would still have professional experience/skills that transfer to web development.
How will that help provide better results?
This is a great site, and I really like what they are doing and going towards. I just don't like how it's littered with Google trackers, etc.
I hate ads just as much as everyone else, but if that's how they are planning to pay for hosting/time, it is absolutely needed.
You can do lots of things.
If nothing then perhaps it was needed.
People deserve to be paid for their effort, and unless you want to pay a monthly subscription to an entry-level job tracker, advertising or collecting emails are really the only two ways to do it in this example.
You could charge an employer $200 to post a job. Or you could try to reach hundreds of thousands of pageviews from non-adblock devices to get the same amount in Adsense money.
Pulling in jobs from usajobs.gov could help expand the results. Anything at a grade <= GS-7 is generally considered to be entry level for the US Government.
I'm seeing ~4k jobs open to the public that meet that criteria here: https://www.usajobs.gov/Search/?g=0&g=1&g=2&g=3&g=4&g=5&g=6&... . It may be worth trying to aggregate some of those as well.
1-3: Toronto, ON
4-7: Pittsburgh, PA
8-11: null, Ohio
12-25: Toronto, ON
I also clicked to half a dozen positions and all but one returned "Sorry, this position is not available".
Finally, I noticed a few postings for "Reputable Company looking for immediate hire" (yes, this was the description). I know this tool just scrapes job boards, but that sort of vague description really hurts my confidence in the results.
Once a consulting company told me they'd be happier if I had 2 years of experience because then they could pitch me as a senior engineer.
Overall the title inflation and title obfuscation in this industry is starting to become an issue.
When my company was considering our internships (aka apprenticeships here in the UK) I told the CEO I'd leave if they were unpaid, because I didn't want to mentor people who were worrying about money instead of concentrating on learning how to become a good developer.
I’ve never seen a CS internship that wasn’t paid. Many pay upper five figures.
Shoot me an email if you want to chat. I can share with you how we overcame some similar challenges.
Edit: My bad, I saw jobs in China.
