[ANN] New Ruby on Rails Powered Job Site


#1

Hey everyone - I’m excited to announce that I’ve just released my
first commercial Rails app into the wild.

AreYouHiring?
http://www.areyouhiring.com

In a nutshell, it’s a fast and clean job search engine w/ very
affordable pricing.

  • free job searches
  • free resume postings
  • $1/day job postings
  • $25 / mo resume database access

Take a peek, post your resume, or post a job. Any feedback is
appreciated.

Thank you all, and thanks to the Rails team for creating such a
wonderful framework!

This is cool, great job! The site is quick and fairly easy to navigate.

Something for a UI point of view doesn’t sit well with me however, but
I can’t seem to pin it down. I think it has to do with the vertical
alignment of the main functions of the site and the white space, but
that may just be that I’m on 1024x768.

Other than my vague impression that I can’t pin down :wink: It works well.

Congrats,
Will

“Search our database of 5 resumes from 84 locations and 30 categories!”

??? that’s a ton of locations and categories for 5 resumes.


#4

I agree - the results don’t align with my intentions :wink:

I’m going to be cleaning that up in the coming days to either display
only the number of resumes or to show something like this:

“Search our database of 5 resumes from 2 locations and 3 categories!”

Thanks for the comments.

That would make more sense :slight_smile: Also the “Search Jobs” says the same
thing so whatever code you implement for the resume part would
probably also work for the “Search Jobs”.

Thanks for the advice, Will.

I’ve modified the front page so things make a bit more sense.

Both Ruby and Rails amazes me. This was a five minute task, from code
change, to subversion check in, to check out on the server.

Thanks a lot, Will. I appreciate the feedback, and will be working to
improve the UI as time goes on.

great site, clean and user friendly. excellent use of framework.

how difficult to create workflow with postings based on price and time?
which plugin/s did you use? how long to design the site?
