We created Indeed to help as many people as possible find jobs. In January, over 100 million unique visitors came to the site to do just that!
Indeed is the starting point for more job searches and the source of more hires than any other site. Last month alone, visitors to the Indeed network performed over 3 billion searches, more than 1,000 searches every second. People use Indeed to search for jobs in over 50 countries and in 26 languages. Traffic continues to grow worldwide, with the most rapid growth occurring in Russia, Japan, South Africa, Australia and India.
Most importantly, January’s 100 million unique visitors represent a fundamental change in the way people find jobs and get hired.
Fifteen years ago, newspaper ads were the dominant hiring source. In 2003 (the year before Indeed’s launch), job boards had overtaken newspaper ads. Both limited their selection of job opportunities to paid advertisements placed by employers.
Fast forward 10 years and Indeed is now the leading external source of hire for employers of every size. According to a recent analysis of 1,000 employers, 50 of them in the Fortune 1000, Indeed alone provided more hires than the next four job sites combined in 2012. The comprehensiveness and relevance of Indeed’s search engine model has proven to be the most effective way for people in every job category, at every skill level and in every country to find a job online.
After health and family, a satisfying job or career is one of the most important aspects of peoples’ lives. With that in mind, our goal is to continuously improve the experience of finding a new job opportunity. People now use Indeed to post their resume and get found by recruiters, learn what it’s like to work for prospective employers through the world’s largest source of employer reviews and apply to jobs from their mobile devices.
To everyone who had a part in helping us reach this milestone, including job seekers, employers, publisher partners and Indeed employees — Thank You!
