Three years ago, CareerBuilder launched CareerBuilder.de, which today stands as one of the fastest-growing job sites inGermany. Operating on the CareerBuilder platform, JobScout24.de will serve as another point where employers and job seekers can connect. The acquisition will also include Jobs.de, another popular site with significant SEO (search engine optimization) value.
“We have seen a lot of resilience in the German economy despite the debt crisis, and activity on our site points to more confidence in hiring,” said Tony Roy, president of CareerBuilder EMEA. “This is an exciting partnership with a respected, prominent brand that will further underscore CareerBuilder’s competitive positioning in this critical market. With CareerBuilder and JobScout24 coming together, employers and job seekers will have access to a wider range of services and will have higher visibility in the marketplace.”
