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 Sweden, it attracts a steady 368 840 visits per month. On social media, the site has 2 830 followers on LinkedIn, 6 151 on Facebook and 842 on Twitter. The familiar logo and design create brand unity across borders, attracting both jobseekers and recruiters. There are four different headquarters around the world. There are a number of language options but they lead to the different portals of the site.
Design: The search engine (keywords and location) appears over a backdrop of a Swedish city. 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, job type, category, state, county and location).
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. Otherwise, it’s easy to create an account. To advertise, you have to send a request through to the team.
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 4 000 job offers on the site, most of which are for IT jobs or they are classed as “other”.
Special features: The employer blog; the infographics; the reports and analytics; the job alerts; the app.
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 Swedish portal has a relatively high visibility and the same user-friendly design. Additional categories could be a good idea seeing as many job offers are in the “other” category.
