According to the company’s co-founder Lawrence Vaughan, applicants will receive feedback from members of the job search hub which will help improve their standing on the site and may lead to them gaining the attention of UFC brass.
“Together with the UFC, we’ve created a streamlined process that makes it simple for new fighters and UFC management to connect with each other. There is also a social component that makes it easy for general public to get involved. People can talk with fighters, watch videos of applicants, and show their support for their favorite fighters,” explained Vaughan. “It is an exciting, ongoing process to determine who will ultimately get their dream job fighting for the UFC.”
“We work with companies that are competitive and progressive, and jobbi.com is at the top of its game as a job search website,’ said UFC president Dana White.
Translation: “Jobbi.com came to the table with an offer we couldn’t refu$e.”
Launched in 2008 by Lawrence Vaughan, 24, and Jordan Kelley, 22, Jobbi will likely benefit immensely from the push the partnership with the UFC will provide. Jobbi’s Alexa Traffic Rank is 413,379 and its Traffic Rank in US is 93,868. To give you an idea of what that means, the top two job search sites in the U.S. — Monster.com and CareerBuilder.com — have respective Alexa Traffic Rankings of 532 and 541 and U.S. Traffic Rankings of 112th and 107th. CagePotato.com is ranked 17,399th worldwide and 7,032 in the U.S.
The UFC joins other multi-million dollar companies like Microsoft, Best Buy, ATT, Hewlett-Packard, the CIA, Sony, IBM, Mercedes-Benz, Pizza Hut, and Toys-R-Us who are among Jobbi.com’s current client list.
So, if you want to be a fucking fighter, you better hope your CV is formatted properly and that your references check out.
