The jobs are updated daily. As soon as our member sends a job order to our database it is automatically posted to our website and the date posted is viewable to job seekers.

4. How do I search for jobs?

To search for jobs you must first register your profile into our confidential and secure database. Once you enter your profile you will be able to search for jobs, set up personal job searches and access special links. To search for jobs simply choose "Search Jobs" from the Job Seekers Career Center menu. You can then search jobs by primary specialties, geographic region, city/state and compensation. We recommend you start with broad search criteria and then become more specific.

6. How can I post my resume?

You must register your confidential career profile before you begin to search jobs. In Step 1 of the registration process, you can browse for and upload your resume. Or, there is a section in the profile that asks for you to copy and paste your resume into a large text box. Open your resume in your word processor. Please make sure that your resume has been saved as a ".doc" or ".txt" format. Choose "Select All" from the Edit pulldown. This will highlight all of the text in your resume. Then choose "Copy" from the Edit pulldown. This will "copy" all the text that was highlighted. Go back to the online registration form and click your mouse in the "Resume" box. Choose "Paste" from the Edit pulldown. This should copy and paste your resume into the text box. Consult your word processing HELP key if you have any problems with "copy and paste".

7. How do I apply for a job online?

At the bottom of each job listing you will see an "Apply Now" button. When you apply online your profile and resume are sent DIRECTLY to the recruiter responsible for that job!

8. Can I update my information or resume after I submit an application?

Yes. If you are making a change right after submitting your application it is likely the recruiter hasn't logged in to review your information yet so re-applying is not necessary.  However, our system allows you to re-apply a second time to the same job if you feel enough time has passed since your application that the recruiter may have reviewed your information or resume already.

If you submitted an application without a resume and enough time has passed the recruiter may have reviewed your profile already, we suggest adding your resume and re-applying a to the same job a second time.  It would be a good idea to make a note in your cover letter that you have added your resume to your profile since your first application.

9. What is a Job Alert and how do I create one?

A Job Alert is an automated job hunting tool that searches the job database daily for new jobs that meet your selected criteria. When we find a match, an email is sent to you with a link to specific jobs in our database that matched.

To create a Job Alert simply fill in the form with the search criteria that you want our system to check, name your search and click the SUBMIT button. The system will start to search automatically. You may set up an unlimited number of job alerts and the service is FREE.
