TheMuse Versus the competition

Essentially a job search portal, TheMuse helps connect employers and employees who are aligned in terms of values. But that's not all. Employers can also discover key employee insights in order to improve their work culture.

TheMuse Review

TheMuse was one of the first companies to pioneer the employer branding space with their in depth company profiles and content first talent attraction strategy.  They'll help you create interesting information about your company, and then distribute this content onto their site.

The skeptic in us want to call TheMuse nothing more than a job board that was founded in 2014, and therefore is a lot more consumer friendly and content heavy than old school job boards.  It's also worth noting that their distribution is very strong with millennials in New York, SF and other "Tier 1" markets, but drops off when you get beyond the top 10 cities, let alone outside the US.
