Founded as Netstart in 1995, CareerBuilder has morphed from a simple software company to a comprehensive human capital solutions company that claims, among its many products, a job aggregator site that operates in over 60 markets worldwide. Suitable for posting jobs in nearly every industry, this MightyRecruiter job posting site partner offers jobseekers and employers alike the ability to connect thanks to the integration of an applicant tracking system with an instant career site builder called Talentstream Engage.
The latter is especially relevant to employers because it allows you to keep your company's job opportunities in front of relevant jobseekers until they are ready to apply. The solution also aims to decrease candidate drop-off and increase the number of applications to your job posting.
Employers will also be interested to hear that roughly 70% of users provide a resume when joining CareerBuilder; the platform then sends these jobseekers email alerts about positions relevant to their work experience and skillset. According to CareerBuilder, Talentstream Engage's automated emails and job matching algorithm provides up to five times the number of clicks on a job posting than the industry average.
With clients like AutoZone, Deloitte, Uber, Accountemps, Chrysler, Morgan Stanley, and UnitedHealth, CareerBuilder has won multiple awards, including a number 5 ranking in HRO Today’s 2017 Baker’s Dozen Customer Satisfaction Ratings. Boasting impressive stats such as 30+ million applications per year, two million new members per month, 2,500+ career sites in over 30 languages, and talent network members in nearly every country, CareerBuilder can help you take your talent search to the next level.
By posting your job on MightyRecruiter, you’ll be leveraging all of the benefits of a CareerBuilder job posting, along with the benefits of posting to countless other job posting sites.

Q&A with Michael O’Dell, Director, Strategic Partnerships at CareerBuilder
How would you describe your job posting platform to hiring leaders who’ve never heard of it?
Careerbuilder.com is an effective, flexible job posting platform to compliment your overall recruiting strategy. Our platform allows recruiters to post manually, or we can pull your jobs directly from your ATS to distribute and advertise. Our site, email, and mobile app experiences continuously attract and engage new candidates into our marketplace, and our search and recommendation technology effectively matches those candidates to your jobs. In posting your job within our platform, we promote your job through many online media channels including social, aggregators, and core organic search engines.
What kind of employers do you primarily cater to?
We service all types of employers across many industries and verticals. We find our clients who have the most success using our platform are focused on quality content and apply path optimization.
What differentiates you from other job posting sites on the web?
We have invested 20 years getting to know candidates and jobseekers. A key strategic component to our success is our continued investment in recommendation and search technology. Over 80 percent of the applies a job posting receives within our platform actually come from job recommendations personalized for active users, which we’ve already worked hard to acquire and are waiting to be matched to your job. We launch new features valued by jobseekers and clients each quarter to continue improving and evolving our marketplace.
Additionally, we also have our own integrated ATS, Talent Network and Candidate Search capabilities available within our platform offering, optimized for better user experience and performance. These components can easily be bundled together to provide an end-to-end recruiting solution.
What are the benefits that employers get when their job appears on your platform?
Benefits a job receives within our platform includes:
- Promotion of job through paid search
- Partnerships and promotion of job to major search engines
- Promotion of jobs with selected aggregator partners
- Promotion of jobs within display advertising
- Inclusion of job within our automated email job recommendations to existing users
- Inclusion in our onsite recommendations
- Job distributed through our mobile apps (Android and iOS)
- Cross reference job postings with our career-related content
- Easy add-on products for additional promotion such as email and automated Talent Network engagement campaigns
What do you think the new Google for Jobs news means for your job posting site?
We value Google as a partner in many strategic areas including Google for Jobs. We’ve worked hard to make our content easily indexable and accessible for Google, as well as our other valued search engine partners.
What advice would you give to employers who want their job postings to attract the best candidates possible?
We’ve written a blog post that outlines how employers can optimize their job posts. But, to summarize, employers should focus on:
Quality job content: Include salary, specific physical address, normalized job titles, and thoughtful descriptions.
Integrated apply path: As part of our job platform, we offer seamless apply integration with most ATS's, which allows users to apply to your jobs in one click from our site. This works by connecting a simple API between our Job platform and your ATS, which allows us to pass all the candidate data into the ATS without the candidate ever having to fill out an additional registration on your ATS. This is critical since 80 percent of the users applying to jobs from our site and mobile app are registered with a resume ready, and over 50 percent of those users are visiting from a mobile device. Enabling a user to find and apply to your job in one click will result in 5X the applicant volume over an apply path through your ATS.
What’s one thing that hiring leaders might not know about your job posting services?
Many leaders do not realize that the majority of applications (80 percent) for job postings on our platform come from users we’ve already worked hard to acquire. Their next hire is likely inside our marketplace just waiting to be matched to their job!
