“CareerBuilder is a globally-recognized company that connects employers and job seekers, which is critically important in the 21st century job market,” said Governor Northam. “By choosing Frederick County for a new, state-of-the-art call center and research facility, CareerBuilder is helping to diversify the opportunities available to our citizens in the northern Shenandoah Valley and adding 250 new jobs.”

We look forward to a successful corporate partnership between CareerBuilder and the Commonwealth, and thank the company for its investment in Frederick County.”
“We’re thrilled to partner with Virginia to expand CareerBuilder’s team and bring this cutting-edge facility to the state,” said Mary W.
