Glassdoor reinvents job search with new web tool
Glassdoor has launched a powerful new job search experience designed to help job seekers quickly determine if a job or company is the right fit.
The company says job seekers can now quickly and easily browse multiple listings alongside company star ratings, read full job descriptions and research companies. This is all through a single window so they can quickly determine if they want to apply for a job. The new job search experience automatically integrates available ratings and reviews, salary data and office photos into job listings for the nearly 500,000 companies featured on Glassdoor. Employers can also elect to enhance their job listings with custom branding and messaging.
In a recent survey conducted online in December 2015 by Harris Poll on behalf of Glassdoor in which people were shown blinded job listings from four leading job sites, the new Glassdoor job listing layout was preferred nearly two to one over the listing formats of other leading job sites. The top three reasons cited among current job seekers who prefer the new Glassdoor design were 1) it’s more engaging (61%), 2) it’s easier to read (57%), and 3) it provides the information to make a more informed decision (45%).
“Glassdoor’s new job search is simply a better, faster way for job seekers to search for jobs and for employers to reach and connect with quality talent,” said Robert Hohman, co-founder and CEO of Glassdoor, Inc. “Not only does Glassdoor aggregate the most jobs available online, we also provide a critical window of transparency into what it would be like to work at a company to help job seekers quickly evaluate if a job and company are right for them. Our new format also helps employers stand out from the competition by integrating attributes of their employer brand and value proposition directly into their job listings, which helps attract the right candidates.”
Glassdoor first introduced job listings to its user-generated content in 2010. In addition to the new integrated job search format, Glassdoor users can browse company ratings and reviews, CEO approval ratings, detailed pay data by job title, interview reviews and benefits reviews.
