So last Friday I removed the password from the new Job Garden site, set it live, and told my friends on Twitter. John Pavlus emailed to ask about it. Here’s what I replied:
I figure all the best jobs I’ve had have been via friends, and I’m always being asked to share open jobs at startups I know, so I made a social job board I guess? Kinda like what LinkedIn could have been.
I haven’t built the sign-up screens yet. But the idea is that you could also make your own job board just by saying what companies you endorse, and then Job Garden syncs up with their hiring pages and brings everything together.
Right now it does just that. It’s ugly and it’s early and it works. The front page is my own job board, and it shows 26 open jobs at 8 startups that I am delighted to endorse. Here’s the page.
