Saw this just in time for #truDublin, where there will be discussions on recruitment-related content, employer brand etc . Today I saw this post on the Groupon blog about being a new starter. Wasn’t sure if the post was written by a new starter but after reading the post further it turns out it links to current vacancies at Groupon.
First impressions of the job site:
- Like the way is styled – simple, looks like Groupon
- Simple design and easy navigation
- Doesn’t feel like a job listing, which is a good thing in my books (there is a listing of current vacancies)
What let’s the Groupon job site down is its content. There is not a lot of it and it is mostly article based – some pictures, a lot of words and no video, audio, games etc.
It is also ambiguous – I thought I was reading about a new starter at Groupon, which I thought sounded interesting. It was not about that at all so I didn’t get what I was being promised.
Overall, I think it needs work on the content but I guess it is early days.
