Ballisager, a consultancy group, has documented in its recruitment analyses that about 2/3 of all businesses used job postings as one of several recruitment channels for their most recent hires. For this reason, Ballisager has prepared an overview of 19 general job databases that can be of interest for businesses looking for a new employee and for job hunters alike.
Before poring over the various job portals, you can use Ballisager's overview to see which ones have a CV database and which have a job agent. They've also sorted the databases according to how many positions were posted in each database on the same arbitrary day of December 2016. We've included a short explanation of these two terms below:
CV database: Most job portals have a CV database where job hunters can upload their CVs for businesses to review when looking for new employees. The 2016 recruitment analysis showed that 9% of businesses used these external CV databases for their most recent hires.
Job agent: An automatic function that regularly (usually daily) sends you emails about job posts. You can choose the field, position, and location of the postings sent to you.
