Careerjet India:


We are pleased to introduce a useful job search site called Careerjet ( The site is a job search engine/job aggregator website. It collects job offers around the world from a variety of sources, a short of one-stop shopping. User can search jobs as per industry (engineering, chemist, etc.), location (country/state/city), by company, etc.

We hope to introduce other career websites in our forthcoming issues.


For Chronicle, Yogesh Upadhyaya asks Deepa Somasundari about Careerjet website:

Q-1: Deepa, welcome. Please explain the background of your company

Careerjet is a vertical search engine specialising in jobs. The company is privately held by co-founders and executive managers Thomas Busch and Jean-Benoit Andrieu. Launched in France in August 2000 under the brand name Optioncarriere, Belgium and Switzerland were launched in 2001 along with the Spanish version Optionempleo, followed by the UK version Careerjet in April 2002.

Careerjet’s international network of job search engines index employment opportunities in over 50 countries and in 20 languages with more than 30 million job offers globally. The interface and job listings are localized to each country’s site.

Q-2: What are the differences between job search engines (such as Careerjet) and individual job search sites?

Careerjet is a job search engine, and as such does not do the same business as job/career websites. Job sites provide services for recruiters to find candidates, whereas search engines like ours provide visibility to other job sites in order to improve their candidate base. We function as traffic-traders.

Q-3: What is the technology behind Careerjet job search engine?

Careerjet’s semantic analysis technology makes it possible to index job offers from a theoretically unlimited number of websites independent of their underlying structure, design or language. The result of this advanced technology is a daily updated index of more than ten million jobs.

Deepa, thank you very much.





About Careerjet

What we are

Careerjet is a job search engine designed to make the process of finding a job on the internet easier for the user. It maps the huge selection of job offerings available on the internet in one extensive database by referencing job listings originating from company websites, recruitment agency websites and large specialist recruitment sites. Using a fast and straightforward interface, users can query this database and save themselves the trouble of visiting each site individually. The job offerings themselves are not hosted by Careerjet and users are always redirected to the original job listing. Essentially, Careerjet acts as traffic driver to those sites.

Careerjet's job search engine network encompasses over 50 countries, featuring separate interfaces that are translated into 20 languages.

Our technology

Careerjet uses smart agents running on a cluster of networked computers that scan the web and identify job listings on the internet such as on company websites which may only list one or two jobs or on larger specialist recruitment sites that feature hundreds of jobs. Those listings are then scanned regularly and the jobs found are added to the job index. Over 58,000 websites are scanned daily.
