  • Two of the largest career sites in the US have teamed up to get more jobs in front of Americans desperate for work, at a time when about half the country is unemployed.
  • The new partnership, between Glassdoor and Indeed, will allow employers to cross-promote their brands and their available job listings on both sites.
  • Employers using Indeed's job advertising tools will now also be able to reach job seekers on Glassdoor, the latter said in a statement.
  • The job sites are also offering a "select branding bundle" that will allow employers to promote themselves on both websites.
  • Glassdoor was acquired by Recruit Holdings, Indeed's parent company, in 2018, but the two have continued to operate separately.
  • Glassdoor and Indeed said in a statement that the collaboration will help them reach about 80% of online job seekers.
  • The Federal Reserve Bank of St. Louis reports that just 52.8% of the population that can work actually has a job right now.
  • About 58% of online job seekers use job sites to search for open positions, according to data from online résumé builder Zety. The majority (77%) search directly on company websites.
