CareerBuilder, the online job portal owned by Gannett Co. Inc, Tribune Company, The McClatchy Company and Microsoft, announced today that it saw an 8% increase in CareerBuilder Network European traffic in 2009 over 2008, according to comScore Media Metrix.
The record increased traffic is not only reinforcing CareerBuilder's presence in Europe, but is also translating into more applicants for its clients posted positions. In 2009, CareerBuilder Network Europe saw a 61% increase in Expressions of Interest (EOI).
Farhan Yasin, President of CareerBuilder Europe and the Middle East, said "this is a defining moment in our quest to be the number one online recruitment option in the European Union. Our unique business model, competitive offerings and focused sales efforts have significantly increased the CareerBuilder user base as well as amplified our value to clients across our European markets."
A portion of the traffic increase is attributed to CareerBuilder's partnership with MSN. Under the international traffic agreement, MSN has committed to integrating CareerBuilder services across key European MSN sites.
CareerBuilder is building its international presence through a combination of organic development, partnerships and acquisitions as market conditions warranted. Today, CareerBuilder has sites across Europe in the United Kingdom, Belgium, Germany, Greece, Italy, Spain, Ireland, Netherlands, Norway, Poland, Romania, Sweden and Switzerland.
