CareerBuilder Launches Big Data Analytics To Help Employers Assess How They Stack Up Against Talent Competitors





CHICAGO, Feb. 7, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Do you know how your job ads measure up against the competition? Which of your job postings are performing well and which are falling short? CareerBuilder's new Recruitment Performance Portal is a first-of-its kind, free analytics tool for all clients that helps companies evaluate how the performance of their job ads compares with other companies vying for the same talent in the same locations.

The portal, powered by data on more than 27 million applicant behaviors, tells companies how effective they are in attracting a large number of candidates and how the demographics of their applicants compare to competitors.  Companies can easily identify where they're especially effective, what areas need attention and where they need to adjust priorities and strategies.  If the job ad is underperforming, the portal even recommends ways to improve results.

Company recruiters and hiring managers can instantly:

  • Track how many searches, views and applications they've received for each position, and compare it to the average applications for competitors who are going after the same talent.
  • View all of their positions at once to determine the areas with the biggest need for improvement and replicate areas where they're performing well.
  • Filter information by job type, job location, date applied, applicant demographics, company profile, industry comparison and site to get as detailed as needed.
  • View the characteristics of their applicants compared to competitors in terms of gender, age, ethnicity, education level, experience, management experience, compensation, last employer, last employer size, last employer industry, military experience and security clearance. 

"CareerBuilder's Recruitment Performance Portal provides actionable competitive intelligence in real-time," said Hope Gurion, Chief Development Officer at CareerBuilder. "We're applying the power of Big Data, making it easy for clients to optimize recruitment strategies to gain competitive advantage and better engage desirable talent.  The portal offers companies information that is invaluable in developing a more effective recruiting program by not only evaluating their own applicants, but also benchmarking their recruitment efforts against competitors."
