What can you use the app for?

Jiibe is a unique form of job site where you can find companies that you would enjoy working with. Every company is different, and normally you are forced to take a gamble when choosing who to work for. The reason that most people hate their current jobs is because the culture of the company doesn’t match up with their personalities. Jiibe makes it fun to find out which companies provide the ideal working environment for you to prosper in. It’s a very simple site to use, you just need to answer a number of questions about yourself and your current workplace. You just have to answer the questions truthfully and it will be able to tell you which companies you would be best suited in. The workplaces suggested are a result of other user’s opinions, and are nothing to do with what the organization thinks themselves which should make them much more reliable. Jiibe is a way to find out what a company is really like rather than just listening to what they say they’re like. Jiibe should make it possible for you to find a job where you can be happy, just because you’re earning money it doesn’t mean that you can’t be happy!

What is the history and popularity of the app?

Jiibe was founded by Greg Scott who previously created Vision2Hire in 1995 which was another online job application system. Jiibe was started after the sale of Vision2Hire in 2004.

What are the differences to other apps?

People looking for jobs will normally be attracted to large companies with well established brand names. You might be told what it’s like to work there, but in reality it’s probably very difficult. You have to gamble everything just to find out. Jiibe makes it much easier to find out about the company before you even apply. There are plenty of other job sites, but none of them are like this. Jiibe makes it possible to find a job that will make you happy rather than just helping you to survive. We spend most of our lives at work and so it needs to be as happy an experience as possible.

How does the registration process work?

Signing up to Jiibe has its advantages, including being able to save your results, edit your responses at a later date, and even make friends by sharing your results. The Jiibe community benefits by sharing all of the information about various employees so that people can find out about their ideal jobs. To sign up you need to fill out a simple form as normal. Including your email address is compulsory. On the next page you will need to enter your current employer, if you are not employed at the moment then simply leave this empty, and if you have more than one employer just put one in the box now. You can then choose whether you want your profile to be visible to other people or not, bear in mind that you are commenting on your employer. There’s an interesting safety in numbers feature which only means your views will be visible when so many people have created reviews about your employer. When you have completed registration you will then need to verify your account by clicking on a link in your email.

What does it cost to use the application?

Jiibe is completely free to use and does not offer any paid subscriptions to its service.

Who would you recommend the application to?
