Overall Satisfaction with CareerSiteBuilder

We use Career Builder across the entire organization. It is mostly used by recruiters to staff our client's needs. Career Builder more so helps us fill professional roles, than industrial, but we do use it for higher-level industrial roles as well. It helps us find qualified candidates that might not already know about the role we are hiring for, so we are able to reach out to them to see if it is something they would be interested in. Typically Career Builder has many qualified candidates that we can present to our clients for their open roles.
  • Search features.
  • Quantity of resumes.
  • The format that the candidates information is presented.
  • Licensing can be an issue with our thousands of users.
  • Not sure if candidates are actively looking for roles, as they don't constantly update their career builder account.
  • Mass emailing: zcandidates don't usually respond.
  • We have been able to present MORE candidates to our clients in the staffing industry, and therefore fill more positions.
  • We are able to find MORE QUALIFIED candidates using search features, to in turn fill more direct-hire positions.
  • We have to pay or Career Builder for thousands of people, so that takes away from ROI.
We use all of these products. Indeed is more expensive and LinkedIn licenses are not given to everyone in our company. Indeed is probably our favorite, as it has the most brand recognition, so most people use Indeed to view jobs and apply, and when they get an email from Indeed they seem to know they probably applied for a job there, so they will open the email. Bullhorn is easiest for our company to post our jobs from as it is more internal.

Career Builder is good for high-level industrial candidates, or professional roles. We utilize Career Builder mostly for professional roles, and that is when candidates will have resumes posted. In our industry, we look for a lot of candidates for industrial positions, or light industrial, warehouse, etc, and many people who look for these types of roles do not have a resume or know enough to be on career builder. I recommend CB for professional roles and high-level industrial positions like supervisors, managers, engineers, etc.
