    Default StyleZeitgeist Job Board

    Dear members,

    We wanted to get your view on a new potential feature on SZ, the job board subforum.

    The job board would be a pay-per-post service with reasonable rates for both prospective employers and employees. Given that many industry professionals and university graduates browse SZ (we now get nearly 1.4 million page views a month) and that SZ is a highly specialized and curated place for fashion with a worldwide reach, this seems like a viable marketplace.

    Shops could look for new sales people, designers for pattern makers, assistants, interns, show room reps, design companies could look for graphic designers and coders with a fashion aesthetic, media reps could look for photographers, stylists, etc.


    A corresponding job seeker board would be established as well where professionals will be able to post links to their resumes and portfolios. Each employer would have access to such a board.

    Please let me know your thoughts on whether you would be potentially interested in participating.

    Great idea

    especially a lot of people would like to post these things but not in an improper space

    Given the income level (and possible background) of many members, jobs in fashion-related legal and financial issues would also be welcome (hopefully to more than just me).
    I am not who you think I am

    I think it could become a destination for a jobs board across the creative industries. I have the impression there are lots of members from a variety of creative/artisanal professions.

    I work in advertising but I use the site often for research/inspiration. It's a natural segue. I would pay for it, for sure.

    Well if SZ could build up this kinda bridge and provide this service, there's also nothing wrong to charge

    I use a pay-per-listing service that is strictly for the arts and culture sector. Museums and galleries rely on it to find interns or entry-level people in a pinch. The response can be so overwhelming that fashion people spill over to find work on this side. I don't mind paying for it as long as I know I'll get a couple hundred resumes in a month.

    Should SZ start a jobs board, I suggest not to invite individuals looking for work to post resumes or portfolios. People looking to hire would rather not look for talent this way. Also, stay exclusive to fashion, or jobs related to the fashion industry.

    So what's the job market like in fashion these days? Can't be worse than finding work in the arts...

    I totally agree. SZ should start a jobs board. I'm always looking to hire freelancers for web and dev projects for the company I work for. I'd love to stay in this community if possible.
