FAQ for Job Seekers

APPLYING FOR JOBS
I found a job listing that interests me, how can I apply?

The details to apply to a position should appear in the job offer.
There may be a form to fill out or a request for an emailed CV.

Is my information automatically sent to the recruiter when I apply for a job?

If you fill out your information as directed on the recruiter's own website, they should be able to receive your details. If you think an error may have occured and you want to verify that they received your information, try contacting them.

I applied online for a position and I am not sure if it went through because a confirmation was never sent.

Some recruiters send a confirmation email when you apply for a job, but not all of them do. Since a confirmation is not guaranteed, it does not necessarily mean that your application was not received.

Does it cost anything to find a job on Careerjet?

No, it's completely free to search for a job on Careerjet, no matter which of our job seeker services you choose. That includes our search engine, emailed job alerts, or uploading your CV so that recruiters can find you.

HOW TO USE CAREERJET
What are keywords?

Keywords are the words you enter as criteria to narrow down your job search.
For example: sales representative

How can I improve my search?

You can add words to specify your search,
use (" ") quotation marks for exact word combinations,
and a (-) minus symbol in front of the word to exclude it from the search.
For example: "sales representative" -plastics
for a sales rep job that does not involve plastics.

How can I use the Careerjet services to find the job that I am looking for?

You can use the search engine on the homepage or conduct an advanced search of your own (accessible on the right of the 'Find' button).
When you open an account, you can also set up Job Alerts. This way, we can keep you personally informed about new jobs matching your criteria. You can also upload your CV on our website so that it will always be convenient to apply to jobs online, no matter what computer you are using.

Why does my Job Alert send me jobs that are unrelated to what I am looking for?

Your search criteria are probably not specific enough. You can add words to your search,

For example: "sales representative" -plastics for a sales rep job that does not involve plastics.

I am trying to log in but it will not accept my email/password. Why?

I saved some jobs listings in my job seeker account. Is my CV automatically sent to the companies or do I have to send it myself?

You are responsible for sending your CV to the company.
CVs are not sent automatically as we cannot be certain that you definitely want to apply for the job or if you simply saved the listing temporarily.

How do I upload my CV?

Click on Add a CV and follow the instructions on the screen.
You can upload files in .doc, .docx, .txt, .rtf, and .pdf format.
