  1. So, is this US only?

  2. Hey Nick, Cameron here.

    Here’s something from the FAQ page to answer your question (http://www.authenticjobs.com/faq/ ):

    “About 65% of the site’s traffic comes from job seekers in the U.S. The rest comes from more than 100 countries, with the UK, Canada, and India in the second, third, and fourth positions. The first person ever hired through the site was for a company in London. We’ve had companies list (and hire) for positions as far away as Australia.”

  3. It’s troubling that the online design community is an echo chamber for promoting so-so work by already-established web-designers (designer seems generous so I’ll be very prescriptive and say ‘web-designers’).

    The number of links and associated hyperbole (even if this is good, is it really ‘stunning’? – let’s be honest) surrounding this redesign were astounding. Especially astounding when considering that, had a lesser-known person done this work, it would (fairly) have been criticized for any number of things, the least of which should’ve started with “the grunge theme is not appropriate for a job site”.

    Success and constant approbation breed complacency. New blood, please.

  4. Thomas, I’ll be last person to disagree with you about the design community needing more honest critiques rather than just praise. I am very interested in hearing your critique, as well as any others.

    You mention only one specific item, that the “grunge” theme you perceive is “not appropriate for a job site.” Care to expound on what is appropriate?

    Lest we take over the comments on Tina’s site, please feel free to email me (bored @ cameronmoll) your thoughts. I can assure you I will treat them great care.

  5. Boy oh Boy @Thomas. I think you need a hug.

  6. @cameron – I very much appreciate the thoughtful response you’ve given here.

    I feel like I may have made myself unclear, unfortunately. I personally am ambivalent about the design, but rather I intended to point out the criticisms that would’ve befallen someone less accomplished than yourself. Or worse, no notice would even be taken. I can see now in rereading how that could have been missed. It wasn’t meant to be personal or about this specific project, really, but rather a comment on how critique is rarely applied even-handedly.

    Similarly, I would hope that honest critiques aren’t met with sarcasm about hugs. If the critique was poorly given that’s my own fault, but it should be corrected not ridiculed.

  7. Sorry Thomas, didn’t mean to make you feel ridiculed.
