Students Get Inside Look at Salary Insights and Company Reviews Direct From Employees
SAUSALITO, Calif. (July 28, 2010) — Glassdoor.com (www.glassdoor.com), a career community offering a free inside look at jobs and companies, has joined together with the just re-launched CollegeRecruiter.com to better help college students and recent graduates find the information they need to make better career decisions.
Now through CollegeRecruiter.com, students and grads can get firsthand insights from Glassdoor users into specific salaries by job title alongside job descriptions and open job listings in areas near them. In addition, visitors to CollegeRecruiter.com will get a behind-the-scenes look at what it is like to work or interview at a company and interview reviews based on feedback from employees or job candidates.
For example, with Glassdoor’s community insights and CollegeRecruiter.com’s jobs information, a recent grad who is looking to become a software engineer can find current job listings, get details into a specific company’s compensation package, find out how pay varies by location, see what other software engineers and other employees think about their jobs and employers, and get an advance peek into what it is like to interview at a certain company.
“Younger workers have been among the worst hit during the recession and so it’s especially important to arm the next generation of employees with the tools and resources they need to get off to a successful start,” said Robert Hohman, co-founder and CEO of Glassdoor. “Working together with CollegeRecruiter.com, we believe that our combined insights and data will help tomorrow’s workforce get a better understanding of the new normal in salary and learn about jobs and companies that align with their interests and is best suited to their education and skills.”
“We’re thrilled to be working with Glassdoor as we help lead the job board community from a Web 1.0 model where virtually all of the job posting, article, and other content is provided by the employers and the job board to a very Web 2.0 model where we continue to feature content from employers and our staff but also content provided by users of CollegeRecruiter.com, Glassdoor, and other sites,” said Steven Rothberg, President and Founder of CollegeRecruiter.com. “Our users – and users of all job boards – want and deserve a much more interactive, open, honest, and transparent experience. They want to learn about job opportunities and what it is like to work for a particular employer from that employer but also from current and past employees of that employer. Job seekers want and deserve the opportunity to engage in a conversation about the pros and cons about specific jobs, organizations, occupational fields, locations, and more. And with the re-launch of our site and partnership with Glassdoor, our job seeking visitors will get all of that. We’re thrilled.”

Company reviews and salary information on Glassdoor are provided anonymously by a community of insiders, providing great insight into the inner workings, compensation, and pros and cons of working at companies across the globe.
