51job Presentation

Site's statement is the leading recruitment website in China, with the most registered members (over 81 million), the largest resume database (72 million), and the highest peak traffic (over 300 million average daily page views). On average, there are over 3.2 million job postings online, and approximately 38 million applications are delivered through to potential employers every week. According to industry reports by iResearch, has been ranked #1 in market share for several consecutive years and has received recognition from several industry watchers (e.g. CNNIC, Alexa and Euromonitor) honoring as "China's Most Influential Recruitment Website" and "World's 100 Best Chinese Websites."

51job is the most influential HR services provider in China. In September 2004, 51job successfully completed its IPO on Nasdaq, and is the first publicly listed firm in the field of HR services in China today.

Jobboard Finder’s opinion

51job is one of the most popular job websites in China. The website design is very flashy, with many bright advertisements throughout the page, which makes it hard to find the information at the first glance.The design and user experience could be improved to give it a more refined aesthetic.

The job offers are varied in terms of positions and sectors.

A translation of the website into English would be appreciated by all international jobseekers and employers willing to do business in China as publishing a job listing on this site could be quite difficult for non-Chinese speaking recruiters.

Outsourcing the entire HR processes to recruitment solution providers has become one of the key trends in China.
