What are the best job portals

The seal of approval “Germany's best job portals” is awarded annually. The current assessment included the experience of more than 53,000 applicants and over 14,000 employers.

Only job portals that have received at least 30 evaluations from applicants (at least 20 in the case of quality seals for professional fields) and employers are taken into account for the overall evaluation. The organizers of the award are Profilo with the evaluation portal Jobboersencheck.de and the Institute for Competitive Recruiting (ICR).
