Jowba serves up hot jobs for start-ups

Find jobs for start-ups with Jowba.

Jowba is a new and pretty svelte looking job classifieds service. It's been designed specifically to help people find and post jobs for many of the companies we blog about here on Webware. Anyone who reads this blog regularly knows I'm a sucker for well designed Web sites, and Jowba is no exception--it's got both form and function going for it.

What makes the service particularly useful compared with Web sites such as Craigslist or Monster is that information about each company is a mandatory aspect of posting, making it a partial directory for all things Web 2.0. It's also completely free to post and apply to jobs, and any job that's been posted will respawn each month instead of expiring if no one ends up biting.

To help aid in the employment hunt, prospective job seekers have a variety of tools at their disposal, including built in maps of where each company is, along with a specially crafted search tool that separates jobs by various Web disciplines. Job posters have a little more power with a special in-box for resumes and tools to post and keep track of positions in a company that has multiple branches. They can also customize each job listing with a special area on the sidebar for leaving personal notes about the position.

There are only a handful of jobs on Jowba at the moment, but I'm assuming that will change as the company gets more aggressive about getting its name out there.
