TimesJobs enters into strategic alliance with US-based CareerBuilder

TimesJobs.com, the e-recruitment portal from the Times Group stable, and CareerBuilder.com, the No. 1 online recruitment portal in the US, have joined forces. The prime focus of this tie-up is to bring in more employment options to companies and job seekers in the Indian subcontinent.

Vineet Jain, MD, Bennett, Coleman & Co., said, "We at The Times Group have always believed in forging strong alliances that contribute towards a meaningful relationship. Our association with CareerBuilder.com symbolises such a relationship. We hope to not only reach out to but also benefit the wide diaspora of Indian and US job-seekers and corporates through this alliance."

CareerBuilder.com offers over 11 million resumes and more than 900,000 job postings from 30,000 of the USA's top employers. Said Matt Ferguson, CEO, CareerBuilder.com, "We hope that this alliance goes a long way in fostering the relationship between India and the US as well as in providing sustaining career solutions to Indian as well as American users."

"Representing CareerBuilder.com in India and TimesJobs.com in the US will be the prime focus of this alliance. We see a lot of value for users in each other's marketplace," said R Sundar, Director-Corporate and Head-Internet Initiatives, The Times of India Group.

With an increasing number of job seekers becoming Net savvy, the online recruitment market in India is going through a phase of transition. The market is expected to expand considerably and touch the Rs 100-crore mark within the next two years. With this alliance, users can look forward to a wider range of career choices.
