Yahoo and Google changed the way people surf the Internet, indexing billions of web pages in an effort to make it easier to find information in the ever-expanding electronic sea.

A British-based company is hoping to have a similar impact in transforming the way employees look for, and employers post, jobs in the information age.

JoPit.com, named using the first initials of its four founding investors, bills itself as a search engine for job postings. What makes the technology particularly interesting to HR practitioners is that it will go out and scoop jobs off corporate websites and make them available to jobseekers using the job search engine — and there’s no charge to employers for doing so.
