More than 65 million Americans visited career sites in June, representing a 10-percent increase over the previous year, according to a new report from comScore.
CareerBuilder was the most popular site with 21.7 million unique visitors, followed by Yahoo HotJobs with 17.9 million visitors (up 23% over a year ago), and Monster with 14.5 million visitors (up 6%).
While visits to online career development websites continue to grow, fuelled by fears of job security and increased layoffs, there’s one particular age group that has grown faster than others.
Visits to career development websites grew 20% YoY, according to Nielsen, rising 41.5 million visitors in January 2008 to just under 50 million in January this year.
This development can be seen as something that’s either good for the Internet sector or bad for the economy in general. Or both. Regardless, Gannett has paid $135 million for another ten percent of CareerBuilder.com, which brings its total stake up to 50.8 percent.
Microsoft announced today that it had acquired a 4% stake in jobs site CareerBuilder, taking percentages from the newspapers that own the popular service (1.7% from Tribune, 1.7% from Gannett, and .6% from McClatchy). As part of the deal, CareerBuilder becomes the exclusive provider of job listings on MSN Careers, and Microsoft is guaranteed at least $443 million over the next seven years.
