It's better than Monster IMO. For me linkedin and dice is where it is at, for high tech sales job. I just applied for Silicon Valley and 30 minutes later, off of dice, I have an interview. 1/3 or less of my good interviews have come from CB. YMMV

The original poster was questioning if careerbuilder was overlooked or underrated. It's not some uncommon website that's unknown to the masses of unemployed. It won't be a revelation at the job club.

That's why I no longer post my resume. I rather pick and choose who gets my number by applying for preferred employers. Unfortunately, some recruiters will download your contact info to their own databases. They continue to call, after your resume is removed.

The feedback you get if your resume is made public on their site is the only negative to me about the site

CareerBuilder and Monster post these outdated jobs too. Let's be fair to all parties. As for jobs, I find Indeed better for recent college graduates than CareerBuilder and Monster are. If you are a more experienced job seeker, you are likely to find all three even.

FYI a lot of scams come through putting resumes on CareerBuilder as well as insurance sales companies like Banker and Aflac.

I'm referring to being able to see the new posted jobs in the last 24 hours on CB and just uploading a resume to apply instead of completing a online application

The other thing I constantly get are offshore recruiters constantly emailing me to see if I'd be interested in some crappy 3 month long temp job 1000 miles from where I live.

Yeah they need some cultural training. I get the random blast e-mails with bad grammar, cheesy homemade website, and no linkedin profile. Yeah right I am giving you my personal info
