How to Find the Right Job Faster: Introducing Glassdoor’s New Job Search Experience

With 2016 in full swing, many people are not only looking for a new job, but also looking for ways to get smarter about their search. With 45% of people reporting that they are currently job searching, or plan to search for a job in the next year1, it’s the perfect time to streamline the job search process. Today, Glassdoor brings you the solution with our new industry-leading job search experience, making it easier and faster than ever before to find the right job.

How It Helps You Find the Right Job

As many job seekers can attest to, the job search experience can be clunky and even frustrating. Until now, job searching online has been inconsistent. For instance, often when searching for a new job you get bounced to different sites and search windows to view job descriptions, resulting in many open windows and tabs – making it easy to get lost. With the launch of our new job search, Glassdoor is fixing what’s broken.

With our new job search experience, you stay in one window while receiving everything you need, including being able to easily browse jobs, quickly click through openings, see job descriptions in the same window, save jobs for viewing at a later time, or being able to instantly apply to a job. Traditionally, a job description doesn’t offer you enough information to evaluate if a job is a good fit, but Glassdoor’s new job descriptions incorporate employee generated content, such as company reviews and salary information, to help you quickly evaluate if a company is a good fit for you.

Preferred nearly 2:1 over other competitive job sites2, Glassdoor’s new desktop and mobile job search experience delivers everything you need to quickly determine if a job or company is the right fit. The top three reasons cited among current job seekers who prefer the new Glassdoor design is 1) it’s more engaging (61%), 2) it’s easier to read (57%), and 3) it provides the information to make a more informed decision (45%).2
