Headquartered in Chicago, Illinois with offices around the world, CareerBuilder is the largest online job site in the United States.

Through constant innovation, cutting-edge technology, and outstanding customer care, CareerBuilder matches the right person with the right opportunity more often than any other site.
CareerBuilder was founded in 1995 as NetStart, a software company enabling companies to list job openings on their websites. At the time, 16 million Americans used the Internet on a monthly basis, but hardly anyone was using the Internet to look for jobs. In 1998, NetStart was renamed CareerBuilder. The company launched its partnership model in 1999 and resume database in 2000, making it easier for the right job seekers and employers to find each other.
In 2005, CareerBuilder revolutionized job search by being the first to build in-house technology for a new job recommendation engine. This increased the number of quality applications companies received. The following year, CareerBuilder passed its largest competitor in US revenue. Having led the industry in traffic and job postings for over two years, CareerBuilder now ranked first in all major categories of online recruitment in America. It was also in 2006 that the company started its evolution beyond a job board, diversifying its product line and introducing new consultative services.
Today, over 24 million people per month visit CareerBuilder to search for jobs and get career advice. CareerBuilder also powers the career sites of more than 10,000 websites, 140 newspapers, and leading portals such as AOL, MSN, and AT&T. With a mission to empower employment, the company works with employers around the globe including the majority of the Fortune 1000.
