CareerBuilder has provided an avenue for online job listings since its founding as NetStart in 1995. Since that time, the company has expanded to include a large partner network of recruiters, a resume database, and an online resource center for job seekers, small businesses, and large corporations.
There are over 24 million unique visitors to the site each month. CareerBuilder powers career sites for more than 1,000 partners, including 140 newspapers, and they operate in more than 60 worldwide markets in the U.S., Europe, Canada, Asia, and South America.
CareerBuilder offers an exceptionally strong set of informative materials for both job seekers and recruiters. Their Advice & Resources section contains infographics and videos along with traditional articles on a variety of employment-related topics. Some of these include assessments, job trends, networking, following up, and negotiation. Especially helpful is a weekly "Who's Hiring" update. Educational content is searchable by industry or job phases (discovery, find the job, get the job, and on the job). A separate blog for recruiters is just as thorough, though their webinars are only available to CareerBuilder account holders.
The company was founded as NetStart in 1995, making it one of the first online job search companies. NetStart enabled companies to list job openings on their websites and was named CareerBuilder in 1998.
Services are provided at no cost to the job seeker.
CareerBuilder allows employers to purchase up to 35 job postings at a time. Each posting is valid for one calendar month and can be used within 12 months of the purchase.
The price for one job is $419, and the more job postings that are purchased, the greater percentage discount per job-though even with a discount, the costs run steep. In the highest savings bracket, buying 25-35 job postings saves the client 43% at $240 per job. For even larger quantities, employers can request information about subscription posting solutions.
Other "core products" include:
There are a number of additional services that are catered to varying company sizes and needs, such as postings to specific niche job sites like CareerRookie and JobsOnTheMenu, as well as sourcing technology and recruitment analytics services and software.
CareerBuilder provides a contact submission form for inquiries or feedback. Paid clients have access to a customer success team during business hours over the phone and through live chat (Monday-Friday 8:30 AM-5:00 PM).
Career Builder is just a superior job search platform. Their site is efficient and gives you many opportunities to find gainful employment. I like the mix of industries and corporate brands that use CareerBuilder. That gives the search results I get great value. These are simply excellent job leads that have helped me change employment pretty easily.
CareerBuilder is an awesome online job search tool. It offers an array of industries and organizes search results in a clean effective way. It also offers quick applications and industry info resources. They are great to use to expand the job opportunities for you. It sure helped me when I needed it!
I call several companies with a listing on this site, and most openings did not exist. I wasted a lot of time trying to apply for opening that did not exist.
Okay app. Not as thorough as some of the others. I have not had a lot of success in getting work through this app.
So easy to do a job search on Career Builder. I actually use this site to look at different options of companies, and it's very resourceful when going through interviews to make a job decision.
I like the job search engine just fine. On the down side, after signing up, I got a lot of emails that weren't really targeted to me.
I have used careerbuilder to help find candidates to fill positions and they were always easy to set up and work with and we had a lot of success finding quality candidates.
I like the quick apply feature for career builder. They also didnt spam my email with notifications of jobs i wasnt interested in . Would use again.
I was recently on the prowl for a new job and used CareerBuilder among others as a tool to find relevant positions. CareerBuilder was persistent - they sent me daily+ job suggestions. The jobs were always relevant though and I appreciated it. They kept me on my toes and working toward my new position. Got a job!
This job site is just filled with spam postings. I have never been able to find anything worth applying for here.
