Review:

Thanks to its average of 31 million unique visits per month, Patch offers companies the familiarity of a local newspaper with scalable and hyper-local reach. Businesses can post vacancies for free, advertise their services, and connect with job seekers in more than 1,200 local communities.

  • Patch is not a traditional job board and lacks a range of recruitment tools, such as candidate matching.
