Insourced is one part job board and one part search engine...a “hybrid”, if you will. We allow employers and recruiters to post jobs to our site inexpensively and also scour the Web for jobs from employers and staffing agencies (but never from other job boards, newspapers, or non-hiring sources). We strive to deliver only the most relevant, “clean” job search results. What’s that mean? Well, let’s just say that if you’re looking for duplicate jobs, pyramid schemes and work-from-home “opportunities”, you’ve arrived at the wrong place.
If, on the other hand, you want only legitimate job listings, the ability to search and sort them about a gazillion different ways (give or take) and a voice of your own within the Web’s job landscape, get on board...cause deep down in places we don’t talk about at parties, we want you on that wall...we need you on that wall.
You see, Insourced offers all of the useful industry-standard features of the major job boards and search engines, but we’ve added some enhancements and stripped away much of the garbage. And if you see a job listing you don’t like for any reason on Insourced, you can use our inThing rating system to vote the job out and even lower its ranking in inThing-filtered search results. And we appreciate your help. We’re all about eliminating bad jobs and spam, so vote out anything you don’t like and contact us immediately if you suspect that spam or bogus jobs have infiltrated our listings.
Insourced will never be the biggest job board nor will it ever have the most jobs. Because, really, do you want to see all the jobs, or do you just want to see all the good jobs?
The Insourced Blog is comprised of the stream-of-consciousness ramblings of our writers and contributors and its focus can often be traced back to the employment industry and items of interest to job seekers.
In the summer of 1997, while returning home on the light rail from a Baltimore Orioles baseball game, Michael Wist and Matthew Blevins, aided significantly by the heady euphoria produced by too many cheap American macro brews, discussed the possibility of going into business together.
They founded their first company that year and quit their full-time jobs in 1998. Since then, they have been engaged in various entrepreneurial ventures and have convinced their friends that they get paid to do nothing. In the interest of promoting their friends' mental instability, they have dedicated their professional lives to perpetuating this myth.
Insourced is their latest and most cuddly venture.
