About Jobulator

True or False?

Jobulator follows all of the preference lists and skill-matching settings in absence management.

True! Jobulator is not a timed advantage, and users do not have an unfair advantage when searching for jobs. Instead, Jobulator is a convenient way to alert substitutes of new job openings.

Jobulator doesn't offer anything for districts.

False. On the contrary, most districts see better fill rates when they allow substitutes to use Jobulator. The percentage of Jobulator users typically matches the percentage of jobs filled. For example, if 10% of substitutes in a district use Jobulator, 10% of all the jobs in that district will usually be filled using Jobulator.

Jobulator is expensive for substitutes.

False. Jobulator costs only about half of its top competitors' subscription fees. Typically, if a user picks up just one more job by using Jobulator, the subscription pays for itself. Plus, substitutes get a free 14-day trial when they first sign up!

Jobulator is free for districts to enable.

True! Jobulator does not cost anything for districts. Substitutes sign up for Jobulator and manage their Jobulator accounts on their own; no additional work is required from the district.

Jobulator can turn off competitors and prevent them from accessing the absence management system.

False. We have no access to competitors and we cannot turn off their services.

Districts can see if a substitute rejects a job on Jobulator.

True! If a substitute rejects a job on Jobulator, it will appear as a line in the Absence/Vacancy Log.
