After operating as Syndicruit.com for the past few months, we came to the realization that the name wasn’t a good fit. The response we got to our name varied from “Syndi what???” to, “Is that an oil company?”

So, for the past two months we’ve been working on a new name for Syndicruit that better reflects where we’re going as a company. After much deliberation our brilliant designer Leif Parker hit on what we think is a winner, Jobcast.net!

Why Jobcast? Many of you know us for our Facebook job app that we launched a few months ago. What you may not know is that this is just the beginning of what we plan to offer. In the very near future, we will be launching a platform for broadcasting jobs to many other social sites, classified sites and job boards. Hence the name Jobcast.net!

So, stay tuned for the official launch of our new web application coming this summer. Our first release will include a job micro-site for employers and the ability to broadcast jobs to:

  • Social Networks: Twitter, Facebook and Linkedin
  • Job Sites: Indeed.com and Simplyhired.com

With micro-sites, employers will be able to:

  • Customize a career page with their company logo and branding
  • Create their own branded sub-domain on our system
  • Publish and manage their jobs from an admin panel

To get the latest information on our upcoming launch, subscribe to our RSS feed or follow us on Twitter.

Thanks for your support over the past few months. We’re confident that the best is yet to come!
