CareerBuilder Update Focuses on Skills, Analytics


CareerBuilder updated its Talent Acquisition Suite with features intended to help candidates apply to jobs that better match their skills, and to help recruiters identify those job seekers more quickly.  

In addition, beginning this month customers will have access to an analytics dashboard that combines all of CareerBuilder’s analytics in one place. Employers will be able to view the number of candidates delivered within a selected timeframe, identify which solutions contributed to the number of candidates sourced and track trends over time. Over the next several months, more detailed pages of the dashboard will be released, the company said.

The CareerBuilder profile has added gamification features to encourage candidates to provide information on their experience, skills and career goals. Once candidates complete their profile, the system unlocks a list of companies who’ve viewed them.  

Candidates who use CareerBuilder’s app and resume builder tool will see an improved UI, including an activity tab to help them track their actions on the site.

With the enhancements, job seekers “can see how well their current profile is garnering attention from potential employers and can use those insights to adapt and adjust as needed,” said CareerBuilder Chief Product Officer Leigh-Margaret Stull.  

In June, CareerBuilder updated the Talent Acquisition Suite to help businesses identify and convert qualified candidates. At the time, the company the features would provide easier access to information and improved communication with candidates. The features included improved user experience and more consistency to the overall CareerBuilder platform.

The company also launched a social recruiting tool in February. SocialReferral lives within the Talent Acquisition Suite and is meant to help employees share content and job postings internally and to their personal networks.
