jobFinder Widget a Job Search Mashup

We had a quick exchange of comments over at widgetBeat a couple of weeks ago, following their review of the SimplyHired widget. During the comments, the thought of a job search mashup widget proved interesting. After finding some spare time, we were able prototype a functional widget. While the widget is mostly functional, it is more of a prototype and academic exercise than anything else. Keep that in mind if you choose to use this widget.

The jobFinder Widget is a mashup of 3 different services.

Searches are run against each of the services and the results are displayed in the widget.

Click on a job title to view a summary of the position. For more details from the source site, click on the “more details” button and a new page will open with the complete listing.

Whenever someone grabs the widget for themselves they will have the opportunity to set the size and default search criteria for their widget.

As always, feedback and comments are welcomed.

Update (2009-11-09): Widget removed due to changes in Amazon API and lack of interest in this widget.

    Ming, This is an excellent widget!

    I don’t see the link to your blog on the widget though. How will anyone know how to visit the creator of this cool tool?

    We need to talk more.
