I like ZipRecruiter because unlike any other company you get updates on when employers look at your resume and how many times they look at your resume. ZipRecruiter has a great assistant to navigate you thru the waters. I am very happy with the service, and it beats any of the other recruiting companies out there. And I used them all as a freelancer when I do look for work.

    I love that ZipRecruiter has created an excellent platform, with a wide array of jobs that are relevant to my skill level, which I can apply. Their customer reviews on particular companies also go a long way in giving me an introspect into what I can expect from my ideal employer. Certainly recommendable for any newbies looking to turn a new leaf in their job search. A 5-star for me.

    The field is crowded. Countless providers publish lists of jobs selected for me based on my background and listed job interests. (I have an MBA, 20+ years of experience and am looking for a senior level opportunity in Finance) However, the quality of the lists are generally poor. Consider the following: Supplier 1- Identified 42 jobs selected just for me; 30 of which are either drivers, warehouse workers or telephone banks. 5 jobs are in the medical field. (No love there) and an array of lists promising numerous unnamed opportunities paying from $12 to $50 per hour. Those are all worthwhile jobs, but not what I am looking for nor jobs for which I am qualified.

    Supplier 2. Promises jobs quickly based on my search criteria. Results, over 20 jobs in trucking, maintenance and warehousing. All fine opportunities, but a waste of time for an aging financial analyst. Although they do claim to have a job with Tesla... Supplier 3 Claims to have positions "curated" just for me. Claims to have 5,000 financial jobs. But before you see them, you must "register" giving your name address phone number and e-mail. The lists are a dubious and not remotely on point. However, my Junk Mail and Phone solicitations rise exponentially... Oh, so that is the game.

    I could describe a number of other suppliers just like the list above, But all I really need is Zip Recruiter. How are they different? Selection of opportunities which closely reflect my search. Quick process to apply. Feedback when the employer looks at your resume Additional feedback if the employer looks at your resume more than once. Advises you when the search is closed. Develops a short, but high quality list of alternatives. I feel like they are on my team. It is easy to waste time during you job search. Stay focused. Work with your search partner. Zip Recruiter. Best regards to all and keep your head up. The perfect job is waiting for you.

    My experience has been a brief one, and I have not yet received any offers for interviews, though so far it seems very efficient and user friendly. I think many people are skeptical of job websites because if you're not actually sending an email yourself most of the time. The one click application process takes much of this stress away, if only because you can apply for jobs at a much higher rate.

    My experience with ZipRecruiter has been productive. The jobs I list are the jobs they send; they are timely, relevant, share the employer name and the purpose behind their mission is executed well. The best feature -- and I am calling it a "feature," at this point -- is ZipRecruiter does not send one down a rabbit hole to apply for a job. Thank you. I really appreciate the assist and follow-up!!

    I am a new to this platform. It was easy to navigate the system to apply for the job I selected. However, when I agreed to submit this review I lost the recommended jobs provided by this platform. This may be an area to review for future users.

    Having worked abroad for nearly half my 45 year career, I have professional associates and personal friends in many countries and industries. It is a convenient way to maintain friendships and keep up with developments/progress in different industries and countries.

    ZipRecruiter is a great Job Board Website. I previously had landed me a job by applying for jobs on their website. Easy to apply and great daily updates on status of my applications. Honestly, I hate filling out applications, it's a lot of digging for old information that gets to me. Anyway, I very much recommend ZipRecruiter and I give them a 5-Star rating.

    ZipRecruiter has been a very good experience for me. The process of contacting me on available job offers was excellent. The process for hire has been very simple on the computer. I would recommend ZipRecruiter to my friends. I personally feel that that this platform for employment is effective.
