This past quarter, we’ve continued to enhance the consumer experience, making it easier than ever for job seekers to find – and apply to – the most relevant jobs. 

We’ve also continued to heavily invest in our recruiting, employment screening and human capital management solutions, and are gearing up for some exciting changes yet to come.

Here’s a look at the key product updates we’ve made throughout Q2 2017, as well as a preview of what to expect in the second half of the year:

Enhancements to the Consumer Experience

CareerBuilder.com:

  • Joined forces with Google to help power a new Search feature that aggregates millions of jobs from job boards, career sites, social networks and other sources.
  • All jobs from CareerBuilder’s job sites and talent networks are included in this new feature.

  • Launched Quick Apply All on mobile, a time-saving feature that makes it easier and faster for job seekers to apply to jobs at the click of a button, resulting in a more than 30 percent increase in applications.
  • Mobile traffic has reached an all-time high over the past year; mobile and tablet combined account for 51 percent of traffic.

Recruiting Solutions
