Overall Satisfaction with CareerBuilder.com

CareerBuilder.com is being used across the whole organization. The company uses it for employment advertising and to post jobs. It also has a talent network feature where candidates that are passively looking at your job postings can apply at a later date when the right opportunity is available from your company. You can also search candidates in your talent network when there is a position you need to fill.
  • Talent network.
  • Resume database.
  • Job postings.
  • Analyzing desired compensation for positions.
  • Sending the same candidates during a targeted search.
  • Reps offering training.
  • Resume search.
  • Job postings.
  • Talent network.
  • Job posting advertising.
  • Moderate return on investment.
  • CareerBuilder.com's strength is advertising clerical positions.
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.

Do you think CareerBuilder.com delivers good value for the price?

No

Are you happy with CareerBuilder.com's feature set?

Yes

Did CareerBuilder.com live up to sales and marketing promises?

Yes

Did implementation of CareerBuilder.com go as expected?

Yes

Would you buy CareerBuilder.com again?

Yes

I would say 6 on recommending CareerBuilder.com to other colleagues only because the price is not as competitive as ZipRecruiter when I feel that they offer the same employment advertising benefits. My company pays about 13,000 per year and we get a set amount of job postings along with one resume seat that is able to search resumes on CareerBuilder.com.
