CareerBuilder, the recruitment and HR tech venture, has recently announced that they will be working closely alongside GoogleCloud to promote and expand the recruitment industry with a "next generation job search". After being one of the primary beta-testers of the cloud-based machine learning platform (Google Cloud Job Discovery), they are now fully integrating with the system and making CareerBuilder powered exclusively by it. CareerBuilder hopes that this transition will continue to fuel their mission for better leadership in end-to-end solutions for talent management and hiring.
The priority of the company has always revolved around a multitude of branches such as sourcing, advertising, applicant tracking, background checks, and more - and much of it is powered by nuanced and capable artificial intelligence for every part of the process. The Cloud collaboration additionally creates more room for better development in the rest of CareerBuilder's toolbox.
The firm states that they have experienced a 40% uptick in those clicking through to view opportunities in the linked talent portals, and a 15% jump in those clicking through for those signed up for automatic job alerts. Both, arguably, were due to "greater relevancy in search results" which then becomes higher conversions into applications on the clients' end.
“CareerBuilder has a history of building and adopting technology that is disruptive in the industry and delivers better results,” said CEO of CareerBuilder, Matt Ferguson. “Artificial intelligence is core to all of our solutions for hiring and managing talent, and leveraging Google Cloud’s machine learning solution is a natural extension of our R&D program. Building a strong relationship with Google Cloud over the last several years has brought unique benefits to our clients and job seekers, including higher relevancy and conversions. Now, companies and job seekers on careerbuilder.com have the greatest job search technology in the world driving faster connections.”
“CareerBuilder is investing heavily in artificial intelligence and machine learning across all of our products, and our collaboration with Google Cloud is part of that investment,” said Chief Product Officer of Career Builder, Humair Ghauri. “We are fully integrated with Google Cloud Job Discovery and are leveraging them on the backend to differentiate the experience employers and job seekers have with us. CareerBuilder offers end-to-end solutions for the entire hiring process and collaborating with Google frees up our time and engineering resources to explore other exciting things we want to do.”
