CareerBuilder | March 15, 2022

Software News
On March 14th, the premier job marketplace and talent acquisition solution provider, CareerBuilder, launched CoLab, a new resource aimed at enabling job seekers with their career path and decision making.

CareerBuilder conducted a survey that found that job seekers lacked clarity and advice on their skillsets and job postings during their job search process. CareerBuilder developed Colab in response to these concerns. The resource hub provides job seekers with a summary of their potential career paths based on their preferred role and location.

"Candidates have been searching for a source of truth when it comes to understanding certain roles in specific industries. CoLab does just that. It outlines potential job trajectory, provides salary data, even showcases day-to-day responsibilities so folks can make informed decisions related to their careers."

- Susan Arthur, CEO of CareerBuilder

With CoLab, job seekers will be able to achieve clarity about the skills they need to succeed. This is especially significant at a time when the transferability of skills is paramount to career growth.

Using Bob, Uala was able to leverage automation through the platform to increase HR team productivity without having to unduly increase headcount. "On behalf of our dedicated and committed 'Bobbers' around the world, I'm thrilled to see HiBob place as a Strong Performer in the 2022 Fosway 9-Grid™ for Cloud HR. I believe it reflects our ability to help customers with cloud-based HR transformation that delivers value fast.
