Frequently Asked Questions

If I apply for a role on the site, how long will it take to hear back?

November 21, 2020

This depends on what type of role you have applied for. We post 3 types of roles: Recruiting, Managed, and Listing Only – and each role indicates what to expect on the left side of the job details page.

Recruiting Roles – We review your application ourselves, so generally you will hear back quickly, within 2-3 business days.

Managed Roles – Your application is sent directly to the employer, and we will let you know 1) once its been read and you are being considered, and 2) if your application is declined by the employer. If the employer agrees your background is a good fit, they will reach out to you directly via the email or phone you provide during application.

Listing Only – These applications are completed directly on employer’s own websites, so we do not have access to any status information.

What is my “Candidate Summary” for?

We have found that a 2-3 sentence summary of your experience and qualifications is more effective at selling a candidate than a cover letter. Think of your “Candidate Summary” as your generic elevator-pitch to employers about why they should want to hire you.» Read More
