MILL VALLEY, Calif. (September 25, 2019)Glassdoor, one of the world’s largest job and recruiting sites, today announced its entry into Italy, following its launch in Spain last week.

It combines this with access to the latest job listings. Glassdoor welcomes approximately 67 million(1) unique monthly visitors worldwide and now has localized sites for 20 markets around the world. 

“We are delighted to bring Glassdoor to Spain and Italy, helping job seekers in both countries get a better understanding of jobs and companies through company and interview reviews and salaries. When job seekers have access to the latest jobs and become more informed about a job and company, we know it leads to a better match with the employer,”  said John Lamphiere, Vice President and Managing Director of Glassdoor EMEA. “Glassdoor has always appealed to a wide global audience and with our presence now in twenty markets around the world, we are looking to make the Glassdoor experience even more relevant and useful for local job seekers and local businesses.” 

Glassdoor is now available in seven languages – English, French, German, Dutch, Spanish, Portuguese and Italian. Glassdoor’s mission is to help people find a job and company they love – each localized site and mobile app is a free resource for job seekers.  Before applying for or accepting a job, job seekers can research what it’s really like to work at potential employers. Glassdoor currently offers more than 50 million(2) company reviews, salary reports,  insights and more, shared by employees. No other jobs platform combines the latest open jobs with this level of depth and detail into specific jobs at specific companies.

In addition, people can customize their online job search to discover jobs based on job title, location, distance, industry, company size, company rating and more. Job seekers can also set up alerts notifying them of relevant new jobs as soon as they appear online. 

Glassdoor also helps employers recruit and hire quality, informed candidates at scale and currently partners with a growing and diverse set of employers. In addition, there are 200,000 employers using  a Glassdoor Free Employer Account, allowing authorized company representatives to engage on the platform to respond to reviews, post company updates and access basic analytics to make more informed recruiting decisions.
