Jobs on Map Beta Launched by Spanish Infojobs Portal

I was e-mailed a notification that a new service is being tested by Spanish Internet Jobs Portal, Infojobs. The company, with a presence in Spain, Italy and Mexico, was one of the pioneers of online recruitment in Spain, quickly establishing itself as a market leader together with Monster.com at the dawn of this new market.

Now, Infojobs is looking to innovate again, with their new 'Jobs on Map' service, that allows users to navigate a map and find jobs within their neighbourhood. Though as far as I'm aware, there is yet no interface built in for using this on a mobile device, it does continue to prove the 'hunger' that exists in the marketplace for clever, everyday services that add that crucial location equation to their product offering.

It will not be long before this type of service will also migrate to mobile, thus extending the reach of online recruitment to an even bigger audience.
