Reviews of: CareerBuilder.com
I have not had good luck on this site. I had high hopes for it and spent a lot of time searching jobs and applying with absolutely no luck whatsoever. I don't know anyone who has actually found a job from this site.
This site was better help than the other job sites you see online. The people, who post their job offeres here, actually pay attention. After posting my resume on this site, I had several job offers. I am actually starting a new job next week, thanks to this site. I would recommend this site for people who don't have the time to run out and find a job the old fashion way. It's informing, and it's quick to reply to your job need. I was impressed with this site, and I can guarantee other people would be too. It couldn't hurt to try it yourself, if you're interested in gettinga job.
CareerBuilder.com is a site designed to help people find jobs. There are some excellent overviews of many careers and lists of several jobs available. What I don't like about this site, however, is that many links take you to other sites outside of CareerBuilder.com. For instance, the "free career test" link takes you to careerpath.com. Another thing that makes keeps this from being my favorite job finding site is that some services, like the resume builder, are not free like on other sites.
This is a great resource for people who are unemployed, and not often mentioned, for people who are still employed! Going beyond just a website where you can post a resume and view open positions, careerbuilder.com has a great help and tip section. Many of the tips are applicable to someone who is working as well as someone who is job hunting. There's also a salary section, and if you feel you are being underpaid at a current job, you can match up with the amounts posted on careerbuilder.com. And hey, if you decide your job totally isn't worth it, you can apply for another while you're there!
It's been a while since I last needed this service, but I still remember it being incredibly helpful. If you're someone who's looking for a job (and these days many of us are), or are wanting to build and post a resume in anticipation of work, you should give this site a try.
When you're looking for a job, the listings are separated by category, so if you're specifically looking for a job in the health care field, for example, you can get right to it without having to dig. You can also search cities around yours, so if you're comfortable with a commute there's more options available to you. You can also search for internships and temp jobs, which is a really cool feature and what many of these type of sites are lacking.
The Advice and Resources section is probably the highlight for me. You'll find listings for job fairs there, a salary calculator, career tests, and more.
Back in 2004, I was out of work and out of money. I had been searching the newspaper for jobs for weeks with no success. A friend of mine suggested this website to me. You can post your resume and job search for free. They make their money mostly by the employers posting job openings. Its all really user friendly and easy to navigate. I did not find a job through this website, but I did get a number of interviews via the jobs I applied for through this website. I also know friends and relatives that HAVE gotten their jobs via this website, so I know it works for sure. I would recommend this website to anyone who is currently looking for a job due to unemployment or who is keeping their feelers out there for a step up or in a different direction. They have tons of listings and a good reputation for being honest. If I am ever in need of a job again, which I am sure I will be, I know I will use the website again.
