Our organization uses CareerBuilder.com to source potential candidates for our clients' open job requisitions. CareerBuilder is one of a handful of resources we currently use for this function. It provides additional candidates and applicants that may not be found on some of the other major job/resume databases. The functionality allows our firm to communicate, create lists folders, and share candidates internally.
  • Advanced keyword and Boolean search options
  • Sourcing and identifying candidates by geographical location
  • Contacting potential candidates directly through the CareerBuilder platform
  • Creating original and generic email and job posting templates
  • Functionality can be more user-friendly for beginners.
  • More options to integrate with other platforms and Applicant Tracking Systems
  • Make it easier to create candidate lists, and send mass emails--while this feature is available, CareerBuilder.com does not make it easy for users to perform these tasks.
  • Add an option for the user to be notified when candidates in saved folders have removed their resume or are no longer available.
CareerBuilder.com is well suited for mid-level and lower-level recruitment. I have noticed that it does not target/attract the C-level or executive-level candidates. Therefore, it is not always resourceful when working on higher-level searches. I have also noticed there are many duplicate resumes that come up on searches, which can create some frustration during the sourcing process.
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.

We use CareerBuilder.com to source candidates & for market data. It mostly solves the problem of setting expectations for market compensation info & candidate availability in a given market.
  • Supply & Demand is amazing
  • Candidate search is a good tool
  • CareerBuilder.com doesn't have the same quantity of candidates that it used to
  • Higher-level candidates don't post their resumes on CareerBuilder.com like they did 5 - 10 years ago
CareerBuilder.com does great with its market data tools. It loads quickly now, where a year or 2 ago it was very bulky. I don't think it functions well as its own standalone ATS. Some serious improvement is needed on that side.
Tech support is very quick to reply, very knowledgeable on the products, & they know what's going on with the entire system. They also typically offer an ETA for resolution, which most job boards will not commit to.

Our recruiting team used CareerBuilder to post jobs and source candidates. Typically, we used it when hard-to-fill jobs needed candidates and we would search through candidate profiles and reach out to potential hires.
  • Easy to post jobs - Intuitive and painless process.
  • Good dashboard with candidate information provides a great picture of what candidates are applying and helps us shape targeting.
  • Could use more search functionality - Including additional search parameters would help make finding the best candidates easier.
  • Not as many people in candidate pool as other job boards.
CareerBuilder is a decent job board but I would typically suggest it as a backup option to other boards. It holds a decent amount of candidates and has good functionality to shape up your posting and who you are targeting, but lacks in search parameters and this makes it a little less valuable than other tools.
We did not end up needing to utilize CareerBuilder's support.
