And where are they going?
From the traffic statistics, it looks like Austin-based Indeed.com. Over the past 31 days, Indeed reached a record number of 200 million unique visitors. “These candidates searched for jobs in over 60 markets and in 28 languages—a record number of countries served worldwide,” according to a blog post on the company’s site.
“Indeed continues to expand its global community of job seekers,” Indeed Senior Vice President Paul D’Arcy said in a news release. “In response to further labor market tightening in 2016, people looking for jobs have more control of their destinies, and many are actively looking for their next position. With over 16 million postings and over 10 million global company reviews, Indeed is uniquely positioned to help job seekers find the job that’s right for them.”
Indeed beat other job sites like Monster.com, CareerBuilder and Glassdoor.
Indeed is a home-grown startup success story. Rony Kahan co-founded the site in 2004 and sold it to Recruit Co., a Japanese-based human resources company, in 2012 for a reported price tag of $1 billion. Read the full story on Kahan’s entrepreneurial journey in Silicon Hills News.
