4 International Careers & Jobs is an international employment directory selecting and reviewing worldwide top job sites. 4icj.com includes more than 12,000 career resources in 200 countries and is a free starting point to find overseas jobs and work abroad.
4icj.com helps answer the following questions:
1) What are the world-wide best job sites and career resources?
4icj.com selects and reviews only the best employment sites and career resources available world-wide, especially those helping to find international career opportunities and jobs abroad. Our goal is quality, not quantity. For this reason we do not include all job sites submitted or establish partnerships that might undermine our aim for quality.
2) What information, features or services are provided?
4icj.com reviews - by using small user friendly icons - what information, features and services are provided:
3) Are the CV/JOB search and posting free of charge, fee-based or not available?

We adopt the United Nations geographical classification as shown in the webpage "Definition of major areas and regions" published by the Population Division of the UN Department of Economic and Social Affairs.
Job sites are ranked by our exclusive 4icj.com Jobsite Web Ranking.
The current ranking is based upon an algorithm including five unbiased and independent web metrics extracted from three different search engines:
Web metrics data are collected on the same day to minimize temporal fluctuations and maximize comparibility. A pre-computational filter is adopted to detect outliers in the raw data. Further investigation and a review of Alexa Traffic Rank data is carried out for universities adopting a subdomain (highly not recommended) as their official institutional home page.
Once filtered (outliers) and reviewed (subdomains), web metrics data are normalised to a scale of 0 to 100 taking into consideration the logarithmic nature in which both the Google Page Rank and the Alexa Traffic Rank are expressed. The three normalised values are aggregated based on a weighted average algorithm which generates the final score and web ranking.
The exact formula adopted to aggregate the three web metrics is not disclosed for copyright reasons and to minimise attempts of manipulation from jobsite webmasters in order to achieve better rankings. The same philosophy is adopted by Google with regards to their search engine ranking algorithm.
The aim of this website is to provide an approximate popularity ranking of world employment sites based upon the popularity of their websites. This is intended to help international job seekers and recruiters to understand how popular a specific job site is in a foreign country.
We do not claim - by any means - to rank job sites by the quality or level of services provided. The 4icj.com Jobsite Web Ranking should not be adopted as the only criteria for selecting an employment site where to search for jobs or post resumes.
Data and information are added or updated on a monthly basis. The 4icj.com Jobsite Web Ranking is updated every six months, in January and July.
A special thanks goes to all employment sites that are participating in this project and help us maintain our database up-to-date.
