April 17, 2017 CareerBuilder

At CareerBuilder, we are always working to improve and enhance our products and solutions based on customer needs and feedback.

Here’s a look at some of the key product updates we made throughout Q1 2017 as well as some of the exciting changes yet to come this year:

Enhancements to the Consumer Experience


  • Launched a new set of email campaigns designed to identify where job seekers are in their search process and overall career journey. We are now able to customize the cadence and content of job alerts and email messaging for job seekers if, for example, they have recently accepted a job or are actively looking for a new opportunity.

Advice & Resources:

  • Created 200 visually rich articles, templates and infographics for job seekers on the skills required for their next job – and how to highlight those skills in their resume to find their next job.

Salary Widget:

  • We are now sharing average salary information for a job seeker’s search query on the search page and job detail page.
