Jobster.com version 2.0

Jobster.com has re-launched its Web site, turning its corporate site into a destination for job seekers.

The relaunched site, which went live Thursday, provides a big search bar at the top, where users can type in a position and a location. The results are pulled from numerous sites, including Monster.com, Craigslist and others.

But Jason Goldberg, Jobster’s founder and chief executive, said it’s much more than just a static page of search results. What job seekers will get is a MySpace-like or LinkedIn like experience. Employees at companies will be able to enter their thoughts and feelings about their employer on pages with their profile.

“We coupled results with user-generated content to give a feeling what ti’s like to work there. It’s a more human experience,” he said.

The questions range from everything on what type of music do you listen to to what you can walk to from your office and what you can see from your desk.
