Who Lands the Job? Indeed vs. AngelList
The start of a new year is a popular time for job searching (hint: we are hiring!), so if you’re in the process of finding your next gig, there’s a good chance that you began by browsing for listings on Indeed or AngelList.
But which company does a better job of sharing their job postings through the different communication channels? We’ve created a User Engagement Teardown that compares the omni-channel strategies of each leading career site.
Founded in 2004, Indeed is an incumbent in the job search industry that serves over 200 million monthly users globally.
AngelList, a popular Silicon Valley alternative founded in 2010, focuses on serving the startup community.
We wanted to know how these companies engaged their users, so we signed up for an account on each site and increased our level of activity over the course of two weeks.
We completed our resumes and downloaded their mobile apps to search for and save job opportunities. Then we applied to positions on both desktop and mobile.
After analyzing the content of all emails and push notifications received, we identified what these businesses are doing well and what areas could use improvement.
Take a look at the teardown below to learn who landed the job when it comes to user engagement. (Note: if you can’t see the embedded SlideShare, make sure to turn off any ad blockers!)
You can see our past teardowns (including Pinterest, Dollar Shave Club and more) on our User Engagement Teardowns page.
Note: Indeed and AngelList are not Iterable customers.
