Report: Indeed delivers 7X more hires than all other job sites combined

Whether you’re a job seeker looking for your next career opportunity or an employer trying to fill a role, finding the right match is critical. According to a new study, both job seekers and employers are increasingly relying on Indeed to find the best fit.

Applicant tracking software TalentNest recently released a report evaluating the top sources for job hires in Canada. For the second consecutive year, the study concluded that Indeed is the number one source of applications, interviews and hires compared to all other job sites in Canada.

However, in this 2018 study, Indeed has reached new heights. We proved to deliver more applications, interviews and hires than all other recruitment sources, which not only includes external sources (job sites), but internal sources (company websites) as well.

Let’s take a closer look at the findings.

Indeed delivers more hires than all other sources – combined

According to TalentNest, Indeed delivers seven times more hires than all other job sites combined. This is a big jump since TalentNest’s 2017 study, which revealed that Indeed delivered three times more hires than other all job sites combined.

How has Indeed been able to maintain its spot as the number one source of hires? It boils down to both quantity and quality. Indeed isn’t just the number one source of hires in Canada – it’s the number one source of applications and interviews as well. The study found that Indeed delivers five times more applications and eight times more interviews than all other job sites combined.

This study not only re-affirms Indeed’s position as Canada’s #1 job site,** it’s emblematic of our mission: We help people get jobs.

Connecting people to jobs and partnering with employers to find the right talent is a priority. Each month, millions of job seekers come to Indeed to search for jobs and research companies. With such a vast job seeker pool, it’s no wonder that over 220,000 companies in Canada use Indeed to hire.

We offer a variety of employer tools that make it easy for companies to find their next hire. For example, employers can get better visibility for their open roles with Sponsored Jobs, or search through our database of 6.8 million resumes with Indeed Resume. The talent is active and responsive, with more than 290,000 resumes being added or updated every month.

In addition to tools to help you find the best candidates, Indeed is also a platform to build your employer brand – an essential component of attracting talent – with Indeed Company Pages, which now boast more than 1.3 million reviews and ratings in Canada alone.

We’re always evolving and improving the experience for both job seekers and employers. Hopefully, by doing so, we’ll remain the number one source of applicants, interviews and hires in Canada.
