Glassdoor is the fastest-growing U.S. job site(1), increasing an average of 28 percent per month since January compared to the same period last year, according to comScore. This continued growth has propelled Glassdoor ahead of competitors, many of which are seeing traffic decline year over year, to become the second most-visited job site in the U.S. for 11 consecutive months(1). Glassdoor welcomes an average of 45 million monthly unique users(2).
At the same time, a new survey conducted by Harris Interactive of U.S. workers reveals people significantly prefer Glassdoor's job search experience over other job sites(3). Only Glassdoor aggregates millions of job listings and tightly integrates company ratings, salary estimates and interview questions into actual job postings. This unique job search experience provides job seekers easy access to all the available jobs combined with important company insights to help them make more informed decisions about where they apply and work. And, being more informed is an advantage for candidates as third-party analysis of more than 30 million applications has shown that candidates who apply through Glassdoor are twice as likely to be hired than those who apply through other job sites(4).
"Our mission is to help people everywhere find a job they love and we do that by providing a superior job search experience that gives candidates a leg up," said Robert Hohman, Glassdoor co-founder and CEO. "Our rapid growth is a testament to our products and the power of transparency that's helping millions of people make more informed decisions about where they choose to work. And, having more informed candidates makes hiring easier for employers because applicants have already assessed the pros and cons and made an active decision to want to work there. As a result, it takes half as many resumes for employers to find a hire through Glassdoor than traditional job sites."(4)
"Glassdoor has introduced a different model to employment and recruiting where candidates are able to get the bigger picture of what it's actually like to interview with and work at a company. By going where informed candidates are, employers are not just saving money —they are utilizing the right channels and increasing effectiveness," notes Kyle Lagunas, research manager for IDC's Emerging Trends in Talent Acquisition and Staffing research practice.
