The quality and quantity of Zhaopin's users and the resumes in the Company's database attract an increasing number of customers. This in turn leads to more users turning to Zhaopin as their primary recruitment- and career- related services provider, creating strong network effects and significant entry barriers for potential competitors.

 Zhaopin calculates the number of job postings by counting the number of newly placed job postings during each respective period.
