Jobboard Finder’s opinion

Summary:  CareerBuilder was founded by Robert J. McGovern in 1995 as NetStart Inc. It sold software to companies so that they could list job offers. Now, it is a well-known job board present in many different countries. In France, it attracts a steady 59 640 visits per month. On social media, the site has 1 739 followers on LinkedIn, 4 499 on Twitter and 26 friends on Facebook. The familiar logo and design create brand unity across borders, attracting both jobseekers and recruiters. There are four different headquarters around the world.

Design: The search engine (keywords and location) appears over a backdrop of an office (which doesn’t reflect the country as much as some of the other backdrops). The featured companies really are hiring (each company page has an overview of the company and a logo). There is an employer blog. Once in the job listing, the offers can be sorted by relevance, location, company, title or date. The UX design is top notch, making for an elegant page for the job listing. There are logos, publication dates and the type of hours visible before even opening the offers. You can also refine the search with filters (date posted, contract, category, salary, region and city). You can sort the offers by relevance or newness.

The job board objective: Thanks to a global presence, CareerBuilder helps recruiters find candidates all over the world.

Recruiter observations: If you already have an account on a CareerBuilder website, you cannot create a new one. If you post on Indeed or OptionCarriere, your offers will also appear here. You can order job offers through the site, but you’ll need a phone number and a postcode.

Jobseeker observations: It’s easy to create an account. If you are redirected, the site asks for your e-mail address.

The job offers: There are over 14 100 job offers on the site, most of which are for IT jobs, Production jobs, Design jobs or Building jobs.

Reactivity: The team answers quickly.

Special features: Job alerts; the app; the feedback options; the news section.

Verdict: CareerBuilder maintains the same website design, with slightly different functions or images in order to adapt to the different countries where it is present. The French version has a decent traffic inflow but more special features would be great!
