How quickly do top career sites fill job their openings?

Dec. 14, 2017

Job searches today begin online. Whether via a PC, smartphone, tablet or other device, digital recruiting is essential for world-class HR departments. A company’s online presence can often make—or break—that critical first impression.


Every year LinkUp releases the Top Rated Career Websites report that weighs numerous factors such as visibility, user experience, and mobile friendliness. In 2017’s report, there were a few surprises. This year we had six newcomers to the top 25 of Fortune’s 100 Best Companies to Work for 2017. Two of the new arrivals, KPMG and Publix Super Markets, made top three, with KPMG edging out employment all-star Google for the top spot.

This report has a ton of useful data, but I wanted to dig a little deeper. I wondered: If you’re the best of the best, how does it really impact job duration? One would hope that a top-rated career website would lend itself to an efficient recruiting process and ability to get top talent for open positions.
