Veer and Authentic Jobs, sitting in a tree

~ 23 October 2008 ~

Screen showing Authentic Jobs listings now appear on

I’m super pleased giddy, really, to announce Veerthe place for elements of creativity — as Authentic Jobs’ newest partner. Veer Ideas, which was launched several months ago as the hub for creative professionals to connect, share, and explore within Veer, now includes a Jobs section powered by Authentic Jobs.

I’ve known a few of the talented individuals at Veer almost as far back as the launch of, and there has been plenty of cross-linking between the two of us since then. This latest development is a huge leap forward in our relationship, and it’s a textbook example of pushing an API to its limits to create a great, off-site user experience.

As a reminder, use promo code MOLL31 and receive 30% off the purchase price of a full-time or freelance listing through October 31. This is a great opportunity to take advantage of the increased exposure for your listing provided by Veer Ideas.

(Hat tip to Myles Grant, the powerhouse behind Authentic Jobs and its API. The API is open to pretty much anyone, btw. Feel free to request a key.)

What I found interesting, is, that like your own site, veer took me a little while of reading, squinting at cryptic images and small text to see what they actually do. Now, im not a designer, so i may be very dense here, but who makes up Veers market - designers? Newspapers? What is it for?
