Welcome

MySpace Jobs

Recently I got an email from MySpace that they’ve added new features to their website. The trend recently is that MySpace has been on the downturn because other social networking platforms like Facebook are gaining popularity. Thus, I wasn’t surprised when I heard that MySpace was trying to stay relevant. So why not add a job board to your website when the economy is down?

The MySpace job portal in my analysis seems to be nothing more than one big refined Google search. The page layout and the actual results for same key terms are similar in Google and MySpace Jobs. The site does however feature a few videos that are strong in helping you land a new job. It also has a tab if you are looking to go back to school, you can search for a higher degree.

MySpace has added a new “Job” feature to their website, but it’s really just repositioning technology from Google. The bottom-line is that as long it’s a benefit for the users, it’s a benefit to the site.

  1. Marc,

    Good post. It will be interesting to see what happens to MySpace Jobs. It seems like a good idea, but looks like it has a way to go as a job board. They also seem to be using the postings to draw employers into their classified job listings, hoping to make $ on the employer side as things progress.

  2. Hi Sean,

    Thanks! I don’t think MySpace is going away, however I do think that it will be for just bands in the future. MySpace Jobs probably won’t last for long. It was good a try though Tom!
