The careerbuilder site itself is Good, except for the features of protecting users from spam using the site.
Careerbuilder.com Does Not Hide provided contact information from fraudster emailers --employment scammers or whoever they are--if you also wish to be contacted by non-fraudster employers, unlike many other notable job boards. Other notable job boards send the first contact from an employer using a email address of the same domain as the job board; whereas careerbuilder shows the resume poster's email address to emailers to then send emails from non-Careerbuilder addresses.
The contact information protection options (called "Email Management Center" by careerbuilder) for setting up a profile on careerbuilder is:
Public -- all the provided contact information is made Public, to fraudsters too, or
Private (employers that are more legitimate and fraudsters do not see and have no way to contact the employee). This is contrary to good notable job boards which Hide the address (other than if the person puts the address somewhere besides in the email address field) and the job board then sends first contact from employers through a job board email address.
The parent company of careerbuilder.com, Careeerbuilder LCC does spam by obscurity with another careerbuilder-owned site, workinretail.com. See:
My recommendations for good job boards with better Hiding of contact information are sites like:
simplyhired.com; indeed.com; dice.com; monster.com; etc
Good website :) Easy and Clean UI...
There are many good sites to find jobs. This is one of them.
i found a lot of job postings that helped me
I heard CareerBuilder is a great company, but all I get from them is spam for fake jobs and I don't even have an account.
they try to get you to sign up for extra services which I can deal with, but now I get Spam from them for these services. DO NOT SHOW ANY INTEREST IN THEIR EXTRA SERVICES.
Someone should really pull down the rating of this website. Avoid entering your email address and use caution.
Criminals will use careerbuilder.com to send you "too good to be true" job offers that involve money laundering. NOBODY is going to pay you to work at home so you can make $2,400-$5,000 a month or $400-$600 a week!
This website is very unethical. Not only will you be spammed from advertisers, but you will also receive fake job postings. Either proceed with caution or go somewhere else.
I tracked down this spam/scam company by searching in Google, using part of the spam they sent me. It matched exactly, including the odd syntax, only these sneaks didn't dare put their real business name in the spam.
These guys are notorious scam artists and spammers.
