J.UMP stands for “Jobs Up on MaP” (at http://jobs.uponmap.com ) J.UMP lets user navigate an on-line map to explore and view job openings of given job categories. Each job’s map marker displayed on the J.UMP map is placed at the job provider’s exact location, and also leads to the job’s original posting page and the job provider’s web site.
J.UMP is a reinventing-of-wheel in the job searching service field with its initial focus on North America including USA and Canada.
The J.UMP reinventing-of-wheel has been designed to be more than just for the fun of reinventing. Beyond the intuitiveness, convenience, and productiveness of job searching with on-line map, J.UMP brings to its users a huge pool of job openings, with an average of 750,000 jobs to 1,000,000+ jobs across USA and Canada, with hourly refills. These jobs are compiled from leading job sources, EXCLUDING the Craigslist jobs (Here is our specific discussion regarding J.UMP and Craigslist)
Wherever you go (on the J.UMP map) in North America, you’re bound to find many jobs of your interested categories within miles, within days/hours range, anytime, anywhere! And you can see exactly where your future work location will be, that is, if you get that job 🙂
With the map based job listing approach plus the large job pool compilation, J.UMP complements and contributes to the business of related leading job listing sources (more elaborations here).
