Another Singapore Company Acquired: CareerBuilding Just Brought JobCentral

Singapore’s JobCentral with around 80000 users is one of the largest independent job portal is recently acquired by US-based Career Builder for an undisclosed price. JobCentral which markets itself as different from leaders Jobstreet by distributing it’s ads over 17+ affiliate career portals.
JobCentral is also more college jobs focus, helping fresh grads land their first job.

This seem like the starting of a trend where US/Japan companies looks at small site around the region to purchase. Not unlike Groupon’s global expansion strategy by buying out Malaysia’s clone Groupsmore. However I think this is more towards public facing sites with a whole lot of database and mindshare.

The purchased price was not announced.
