Seek.com.au is Australia’s largest job portal but it’s filled with job ads posted by recruiters/recruitment agencies. Now I’m sure the whole recruitment service industry serves its purpose and some people might find them useful. But personally I would rather view job ads advertised by the companies themselves who are offering the jobs for obvious reasons (and there are many).
Since there’s nothing that I can find online that can help me filter ads put up by recruitment agencies, I decided to do something about it and created this chrome extension called “Block Recruiters Ads”
Download Block Recruiters Ads Chrome Extension here.
Where to go from here
1. Install the chrome extension, search for jobs on seek.com.au, and apply direct to the company that you’re interested in working with.
2. The chrome extension currently filters out most of the recruiters in Australia but I know that I must have missed out a few. If you would like to help, fill out this form with the name of the recruiter and the search result URL where the recruiter ads was shown, and I will update the extension.
3. If you like to help out in developing this extension or any ideas to improve this extension, please contact me.
Nah. IMO, it would’ve been a lot better as a filter-list – for the only two adblockers: Adblock Plus (considered obsolete :)) & uBlock Origin.
Who needs more junk, to filter out the old junk! =)
P.S. Trying “Connecting to WordPress.com”, in order to post this (nope, didn’t work either), as the scripts on your web page for Google aren’t working (for me). Most of the rest of the Internet (logins) works just fine – except for a few odd pages, I guess -now- yours included.
