Tech jobs site Dice.com has recently released data that indicate that tech jobs are still largely unavailable. Dice reported that its available technology jobs totaled 48,993 in June, which is down 43.7% year over year. And unemployment numbers have hit record highs. As there are fewer jobs available, there is increased pressure on the unemployed or those looking for jobs to be able to access listings at any time, from any device.
Personforce, a startup that powers jobs and classified sites for VentureBeat, Business Insider, paidContent, the Harvard Crimson, the Stanford Daily and TechCrunch’s CrunchBoard, is launching a mobile jobs platform that lets any job board or career site to turn its website into an iPhone, Android, or BlackBerry app.
Personforce has already launched an iPhone app, called “High Paying Jobs,” with Next Mobile Web. The app lists jobs from Dice.com, CareerBuilder. Monster and more. Basically, Personforce can takes any career website and turns it into a mobile application. Personforce’s CEO Rohin Dar says that companies may find this particularly appealing, as they can create mobile apps for their internal job databases. CareerBuilder already has a free iPhone app, and Beyond also has one as well, which searches job sites and aggregates listings.
