Job Board

List your Blogging related Jobs

Many bloggers I’ve seen and met in our community are having some hard times to find the right person to do the job. No one is expert on everything, also not all of us have enough time and resources to do every task, this is why I thought we need something like a Job board that gives you the option to list blogging related jobs in case you need it for outsourcing.

So many times I was struggling when hiring a designer or a developer to help me with a few projects I am working on, maybe because I couldn’t find the right person, or maybe because I know that design is expensive and I didn’t want to pay a lot of money!

Famous Bloggers Job Board

Famous Bloggers Job Board

But what if I can decide the price for the Job? And what if there where a place like a job board that allows me to post a job? E.G. my design job, then wait for designers to contact me to apply for the job?!

Let’s Bring in Some Good Business

Finally and after investigating and testing, we have launched our new Famous Bloggers Job board, hopefully it will bring some good business to our community and allow us to support each other. So, basically it’s an open job board where bloggers can post their jobs when they need help with anything related to blogging, writing, copywriting, SEO, marketing, design and development… ect.

So I am going to use the power of our blog community to deliver your job to as many people as I can, this will help you to get more people to apply for your listed  job, and will give you a few good choices to pick from.

How it Works?!

Alright, it’s very simple, there are actually three parties here, the person who post the job, the person who will do the job, and the third party is FB blog.

1) List your Job on the Job board : Those who need to list a job, they will have these options (Prices could change at any time!)

  • Free Listing $0.00 –> days visible: 7
  • 30 Days Listing $10.00 –> days visible: 30
  • Featured 30 Days $30.00 –> days visible: 30
  • Featured List $50.00 –> days visible: 60

Note: There is a discount code : fb50 that can be used to get a 50% off when you list a new job, this code will expire at the end of November 2010

2) Need a Job? Search our job board and pick the one that match your skills and apply for it. Make sure to attach your portfolio and showcase your work to get a better chance.

3) Now it’s our turn, What FB will be responsible for?

  • We will manage the job board
  • Provide support and recommendations when needed
  • Mention your job listing in a weekly round up
  • promote your job listing

Incredible feedback!

I’ve sent an email through our newsletter asking for suggestions, and I’ve got some great respond actually, and here is a feedback from my friend Manz (A Senior Designer/Partner of GritFX.com), I’ve picked this one to share with you!

  • a) You may be good at photography and there are times you can use that skill, but there are also times you need to hire a professional and/or their studio services.
  • b) You may have some illustration skills which are perfect to use as resources in a design, or to present an idea to a client. But there are times when you need to hire a professional illustrator.
  • c) You got an A in English class and can make your way around gamma and so forth without a problem, but you may need to still hire a copywriter to create that slogan with a hook to it.

Manz also suggested adding some awesome categories, I’ve considered a few of them. Many Thanks!

Check out the Job Board and let me hear what you think!

After getting Manz’s awesome feedback, I thought to extend this here as I really appreciate feedback and suggestions you might have in mind, so let’s have a little chat in the comments below to plan and try to get the most out of the new job board!

    I am a job seeker. Hoping to find and land a job on this post. Thanks for sharing!

  • Mike November 18, 2010, 2:47 pm

    Awesome idea, Hesham! I saw the job board several days ago and only saw one listing there so I hope there are many more listing in the futures. Besides, you can switch the job board to become a place where professionals can highlight their skills for a small fees. When clients want to look out for employees, clients can contact these featured professional right away. How do you think?

      Hey Mike,

      Actually this is part of the plan, I have the setup already, but I won’t activate it till I get the job board to work, let’s say I will take it a step by step!

      The thing is I don’t really want to charge people who list their Resume , I would love to get them listed for Free, so let’s see how things will work for us then I will think of it!

      Thank you so much for your great feedback!

  • Rahul November 18, 2010, 12:08 pm

    i can guess how much this idea will help bloggers get instant solutions and hire people they need with skill they want from variety of choices and a list of people ! i like this strategy actually and i see many people using sites for this goal and i do agree with it !

    • Hesham November 19, 2010, 3:35 pm

      Rahul, this is the point!

      I hope everybody think the same, I guess most bloggers would wait for hunting a job rather than posting one lol

  • Hung November 18, 2010, 4:20 am

    I planed to open one website that collect CV and Job last year.With this option, the cost will reduce but i may have problem with….local license (for Cv and job seeker subject)

      This is a nice idea, but high competition.. needs a lot of work!

      I have a fully customized section to collect CVs but I won’t activate it till we get this job board to work first!

  • Jasmine November 18, 2010, 4:14 am

    The job board looks pretty neat and nice. I will give it a try when I am looking for help in the future.

      Actually it has a special theme a way from the blog, I had to merge it together!

      Thank you Jasmine for stopping by

    Congratulations for the job board of FB opening!

    Thumbs up by the way.

  • Pritam November 17, 2010, 11:12 pm

    This is really a good idea for the people who are need of getting some work done for them. There are many such services available on internet like WebeServe, ShortTask etc. which are into the same field.
    Good Luck.

    • Hesham November 17, 2010, 11:15 pm

      Hi Pritam,

      Yes, I hope so, many thanks for your wishes.

  • Patricia November 17, 2010, 10:16 pm

    Hi Hesham

    What a brilliant idea. I in fact have offered to help some second languageEnglish bloggers with their posts when they have said they are struggling. Only one got back to me so maybe here is the place to look at what’s on offer. I was doing this as service to blogging community cos so many have helped me. But if people want to pay then that’s okay too :-)

    I’ll agree especially with the need for a good photographer =)

    Shameless plug: Seriously though, if you guys are in the area and you need a profile pic or anything, we do business portraits for just $50. Plus you get the cd.

    This is a great idea. I just launched a new online clothing store and I’m exhausted! I really could use a hand with getting some tasks completed. I’ll check out the jobs board and see if how it works as soon as I make some sales. :) Thanks for offering this.

      Oh! I heard about that and I visited your blog earlier today, very nice, congratulations :)

      Sure you can post a few jobs when you are ready! Any time

  • Blogfather November 17, 2010, 6:04 pm

    Do my comments not get approved?

    • Hesham November 17, 2010, 6:10 pm

      This usually happen when you use your blog name where you should add your name!

      • Blogfather November 17, 2010, 6:27 pm

        Oh it’s just that I am using this as my alias rather than my real name as it’s just what I’ve now branded myself as. Reason being my real name is associated with other non Internet Business work and that I like this name. Hope it isn’t too big of an issue. Thanks.

  • Mani Viswanathan November 17, 2010, 4:08 pm

    Good to see the job boards section. Btw which theme/core plugin you’ve used ? I suspect it’s a core component.

  • Ryan Biddulph November 17, 2010, 3:16 pm

    Hi Hesham,

    Super idea here. You never seem to run out of them ;)

    I can see a job board providing benefits both to bloggers seeking and offering services. The rates are favorable too. If I need some work done I’ll be sure to stop by :)

    Thanks for sharing the opportunity and have a powerful day!

      Hey Ryan,

      While it’s not a new idea or anything from that, but I thought to make use of the traffic we have generated on the blog during the last year! There are a lot of opportunities that we are missing everyday, so why not bring them here? :)

      A “Powerful Day”! This is one cool wish, many thanks buddy.. same to you :)

  • Gera November 17, 2010, 2:54 pm

    Hi Hesham,

    Excellent idea and very clever in listing for free 7 days because that people is looking for a job and they aren’t in mood-pay.

    The best of the luck for all!

    Keep rocking :)

      Hey Gera, yes.. I agree and this is why I am going to keep the free listing, and also thinking of letting the jobs listed for ever but mark it as filed!

      Thank you my friend :)

  • Justin Germino November 17, 2010, 1:41 pm

    Very creative and interesting idea to create a blogger job board off of FamousBloggers, this kind of reminds me of Probloggers jobs.problogger.net job board. The fact that you offer a 7 day free job listing is awesome and I will be posting a job for writers for my own site on it.
    Justin Germino recently posted..Hands on with the RockMelt BrowserMy Profile

    • Hesham November 17, 2010, 2:11 pm

      This is good start Justin! I saw the job your have listed and will spread it!

      Yes, it’s very close to problogger job board and some other job boards I’ve been looking at when planning ours, it’s cool to have a free listing as most of people won’t like to pay 50$ to offer a less payment for the job itself :) so will keep that one for those who really need more promotion and have big projects!

  • Dana November 17, 2010, 1:38 pm

    Great! Now, I have additional place to look for a blogging related job. :)

    Henway recently posted..Thanskgiving and Losing WeightMy Profile

    • Hesham November 17, 2010, 2:06 pm

      I think it might be a good one! I will be collecting ideas so I can study them before creating categories, I do this not to have a very long list of categories while we can actually put a few jobs listing in one main category!

      Many thanks!

  • Vincent November 17, 2010, 12:48 pm

    I searched the job board but couldn’t find a suitable post for me. Nice post anyway.

    • Hesham November 17, 2010, 12:52 pm

      Vincent , well.. yeah not that fast.. we have just launched now and looking forward to fill the job board with nice jobs soon!

      So, visit latter and keep in touch

  • Daniel Sharkov November 17, 2010, 12:28 pm

    Hey Hesham,

    You have definitely come up with an interesting idea. Getting some freelancers can be helpful in some parts of one’s business. After all you can’t be good at everything and blogging has a lot of different fields of work. The price-tags are decent and it is great that there’s a free listing option as well.

    • Hesham November 17, 2010, 12:45 pm

      Hey Daniel,

      Yes, I’ve seem my self needing it in many occasions , and also thinking freelancing requests I receive and I’m not able to take and do all of them!

      I will make sure there is a free listing all the time, or at least provide some discount codes to give our community no cost at all for listing their jobs

      thank you for stopping by
