The only issue is [the same as] all employment sites [where] some people unfitting for positions get their resumes through to you anyway. And although it is a waste of your time, it is still worth using the site to get the good ones. Many more worthy candidates come through than unworthy [ones].

Fountain

Fountain is easy to use on the front end with recruiting as well as the back end with customization around candidate profiles and portfolio management. Recruiting and onboarding have been a game-changer since utilizing Fountain. We use text messaging to help with recruitment efforts. The reports and analytics are perfect as it shows a dashboard of all our team's efforts.

I have had a positive experience with CareerBuilder's support. When the platform has been updated throughout the years, CareerBuilder's account managers have always provided our team with helpful live tutorials and demonstrations to help familiarize our users with new and upcoming features, as well as older features that will no longer be offered. Support team makes themselves available on an ongoing basis.

Alternatives Considered

CareerBuilder.com

CareerBuilder.com was one of the first employment advertising that our company has used and we have been using it for about 7 years. Since then, we have tried other employment advertising (Monster.com, Indeed.com, LinkedIn, RecruitMilitary, and ZipRecruiter) and we have continued to use CareerBuilder.com because it links to our HRIS and it is easy to post the job and the leader job since it is linked. I like ZipRecruiter better because it targets the correct candidates and there are prescreening questions on the job posting itself.

Fountain

Fountain has continual upgrades and updates to help Fountain stand out against other HR platforms. It's easy to use UI helps with onboarding, recruiting, and every activity in between. There is great automation as candidates flow through the different funnels. Fountain helps us manage different applicants across different platforms in one central location.

Return on Investment

CareerBuilder.com

  • Saw an influx in candidates and about 25-30% mentioned CareerBuilder as the site they applied through.
  • Ended up ultimately not providing the right candidates and wasn't worth the cost for our business.
