How do I improve my job search results?
This site offers "Quick" and "Advanced" search forms. It's good to run a few trial searches to observe the results. Begin your search as broadly as possible and narrow it as you go. With "Quick Search," you'll want to select at least a specialty and state. You'll obtain the most relevant results with "Advanced Search" and detailed criteria. For in-depth advice, refer to contextual help.

How do I create a job alert?
If the right opportunity isn't immediately available, a job alert lets you know as soon as a relevant opening is posted. Click the "New Search" link, enter your criteria and run a search. When results are displayed, click the "Create Saved Search Alert" button. Then name your search, choose alert frequency, and click "Save."

back to top

How do I edit or delete a job alert?
This link takes you to the right place in a jiffy. If you're not already signed in, you'll need to do so. To delete an alert, click the red "X." To edit an alert, click its name; on the subsequent screen, enter modified criteria. Consider changing alert frequency to "never" rather than deleting it entirely.

Where did my saved jobs go?
Employers control the duration of each posting. A job might appear online for a week or for several months. This system doesn't retain expired jobs. Please print the job listing or create a PDF if you'll need it for future reference.

Curriculum Vitae (CV)

Why should I post my CV?
Post a CV so that you can apply immediately to positions of interest. When you're looking for a job, posting a "Confidential" or "Public" CV is an excellent way to let employers know of your qualifications and interest.

back to top

What are the privacy settings?

  1. Private (default). Your CV is not searchable and employers can see it only when you apply directly to a posting.
  2. Confidential. Your CV is searchable but contact information is masked. This hides e-mail, name, address, phone, and current company name.
  3. Public. All information in your CV is available to employers having access to the CV database.

How do I ensure my privacy?
It's most secure to maintain your CV in "Private" status. Be sure to remove contact information from uploaded documents. With step-by-step or cut and paste CV builder, use only designated fields for address, phone, and e-mail.

How do I post my CV?
This system conveniently allows you to maintain multiple CVs and cover letters within your account. There are 3 options for posting a CV.

  1. Build your CV. The system walks you through a step-by-step process for building your CV from scratch.
  2. Cut and Paste. Name your CV and designate its privacy status. Before pasting from a Word or an HTML document, please click the appropriate icon in the tool bar to strip out invisible code. Be sure to place your contact data only in designated fields.
  3. Upload. Word (.doc), Acrobat (.pdf), or Text (.txt). The maximum recommended file size is 100K. If you wish to remain anonymous, do not include contact information in your uploaded documents.

Can I tell which employers have viewed my CV?
Subscribing employers have expressed a desire to remain anonymous, and we honor this request. Employers will contact you if your qualifications meet their recruiting needs.

What is Security Clearance when posting my CV?
Security clearance (eg, confidential, secret, top secret) may be required by government agencies and other employers. Employers generally prefer to hire people who already have been cleared at the appropriate level for a sensitive job or contract.
