Q: Why are there "old" jobs from months ago still posted on the site?
A:

Employers and recruiters are responsible for posting and removing their job openings. By default, a new job posting will be displayed for 60 days. When a position has been filled or the employer no longer wishes to receive resumes, they need to remember to remove the job posting from the site. The majority of our employers do an excellent job of managing their job postings. Some companies have ongoing needs for specific positions; therefore, you will see job postings with a posted date from months (or even a year) ago. If the job opening is still on the site, you should assume that the company is still looking for candidates with these qualifications.


top


Q: Why should I use the Apply Online option to submit my resume?
A: The Apply Online option is selected by the employer who posted the job opening as a preferred method of receiving resumes. Using the Apply Online feature will ensure that your resume is sent to the appropriate recipient for a particular job. In addition, if the Employer has included Pre-Screening Questions, your answers to these questions are scored and used to quickly identify the top candidates from among the dozens (or hundreds) of resumes received. Using the Apply Online feature can put your resume at the top of the list - and you'll earn points for following instructions.

Q: What is a "location-less" job?
A: If an employer has identified a job as "location-less" it can mean it is a work at home job, has multiple locations, or is mostly travel, etc. These jobs can be anywhere in the state. Many outside sales positions fall into this category. All location-less jobs will appear in the zip code radius job searches unless specifically excluded by you, the job seeker.

Q: Do you list part-time jobs or jobs where I can work from home?
A:

JobsInCT.com is your resource for temporary employment. To find temporary positions, click on "Temp" or "Temp to Perm" under "Job Type" on the search page. For part-time positions, select "Part Time - Less than 20 hours" or "Part Time - All" under "Full/Part Time" on the search page. "Part-time All" refers to all part-time jobs that range between 0 and 40 hours per week.

Some of our employers also list legitimate work-at-home opportunities. Try a keyword search of "home" to pull up a quick listing. (Please note that we do not allow business opportunities that are work-at-home "scams." For more information, please see our Acceptable Use Policy).


top


Q: Can I get any additional information on a job posting other than what is listed?
A: Since employers post their own jobs, they will only include the information that they want the job seeker to have. However, employers also have the option of offering information on their specific companies in a company profile. Browse through our alphabetical Company Profile list. Narrow this list down further by viewing only those companies with current job openings on our Active Companies page. Or, try a Simple Search, located at the top of every page. Find a company and its jobs quickly by entering the name of a company in the Keywords box and then click the Companies link to the right.

top


Q: I share an email address with another person. Is there a way we can both set up a My Home account?
A: You can only have one account opened under one email address. You will need to get an additional email account in order to open up another My Home account. There are several web sites that offer free email services that you can check from any computer; i.e. Hotmail, Yahoo or Gmail.

top


Q: How do I update my email address or change my password?
A: In order to change the email address on your account and in our database you need to login to My Home, then click on Account Profile. Enter your new email address in place of the existing address, enter your password at the bottom of the page to confirm your changes and then click Submit.

Q: How Do I post my resume?
A: Login to your account. From 'My Home' click on the left side link 'resumes' and click 'create a new resume'. Give your resume a descriptive title.

Copy the text of your resume from the word processing program it was created in, and paste it in the text field that is called 'resume'.

Edit your resume for "Text." Hint: Text files do not have formatting such as bold, bullets, color, etc. Make your headers ALL CAPS to stand out and use white space to separate sections.

Be sure to hit submit to save your changes.

Once your resume has been posted, you can view your newly posted resume by clicking on the title of the resume. You may edit simply by clicking 'edit' next to the title.

Q: My Resume says it's inactive. How do I make it active?
A: You can activate/inactivate your resume at any time by following the steps below.

1)Once you login, from 'My Home' click 'resumes' in left menu
2)Click 'edit' next to the title of your resume
3)Then check the blue box that says 'active' at the top of the resume editing screen
4)and click 'Submit This Resume'.

If the box has a check, it is active, and no check means that it is inactive.


top


Q: Why doesn't my resume look the same as it does in my word-processing program?
A:

Since this is a text-only form, it doesn't always recognize all of the formatting features available from your word processing program.

After you've pasted your resume, you can clean it up by hitting enter between paragraphs, using ALL CAPS for headers, and use '*' or '--' characters in place of bullets. Also, after you hit 'Submit This Resume', click on the title of your resume. You will see the final product as it will appear to the employer.

Pasting into the form field tends to distort your text. It will look much cleaner when it's actually submitted and viewed in final form.

Keep in mind that employers and recruiters will be searching the database using keywords. For best results make sure your resume contains the keywords that apply to the type of job you are searching for.

Q: What do the numbers under my resume mean?
A: The Resume Views counter keeps a tally of the number of times your resume has been viewed by employers who accessed your resume off of the searchable database.

top


Q: Can I tell which employers have accessed my resume off of the searchable database?
A: We do not track who has seen your resume. Our subscribing employers have expressed their desire to remain anonymous and we honor this request. The employers will contact you if your qualifications meet their needs. You will see a counter that lets you know how many times your resume has been viewed by employers.

top


Q: Can my resume be confidential?
A: You have several options when posting your resume on JobsInCT.com. You can make it completely public with all contact information available to employers; you can make it confidential-not showing your contact information, but still searchable in the database or you can create an anonymous Qualification Summary. The Qualification Summary can just be an anonymous list of your skills. Employers can contact you through the site if they are interested in your skills. For more information, please read our Privacy Policy.

Q: I am not getting any views on my resume. Am I doing something wrong?
A: First, make sure that your resume is active. If it isn't activated you will not receive any views. If it is active and still not getting any views, try refreshing by clicking 'edit', making any changes, then clicking 'Submit This Resume'. It will now reflect today's date as the 'posted on' date. Resumes appear in a search result by most recently posted/refreshed first. Resumes that have been stored on the database for months without refreshing are further down the list.

Another suggestion: make the title more descriptive. 'Executive Assistant' might not have the same appeal as 'Executive Assistant with 10 years in the medical field'.

top


Q: I have deleted my resume but still receive emails from you telling me that you have found jobs. When I log into my account there's nothing there.
A: The emails you are receiving are probably the Saved Search Job Alerts you set up on your account. Each Saved Search Job Alert emails you when a job is posted on the site that matches the criteria you set. You can remove your Saved Search by logging in, clicking on the left Saved Search link, and clicking <delete> to the right of each Saved Search title. Or you can inactivate the Search by clicking 'edit', unchecking the box that says 'Make Saved Search Active' and clicking "Update Saved Search" at the bottom. See more information on Search Help and Saved Search Help.



Q: I'm using AOL and I am unable to paste my resume text in the box provided.
A: Many users have had success by using the mouse or keyboard shortcuts to get around this Edit/Paste function issue. First, highlight and copy the text of your resume to the clipboard as you normally would. Then, left-click once in the resume text area, and then right-click and select Paste from the pop-up menu. Alternatively, you can use keyboard shortcuts. Copy your resume, and click once in the resume text area and press the following keys at the same time: "CTRL" "V" if using a PC or "COMMAND" "V" if using a Mac. This will paste the contents of the clipboard into the resume text area.

Q: What does it mean if I get an email that says I have an employer inquiry?
A:

An employer has searched the applicant database has found your resume or qualification summary and is interested in contacting you. They send the inquiry, often with their contact information and how they'd like to have you get in touch with them.

The inquiry is considered pending until you do one of two things. First, you can choose 'Yes, I am interested', in which case you fill out the reply form and the employer receives this information. Secondly, you choose 'No, I am not interested' in which case you do nothing more, and the employer receives a notification that you are not interested. Choosing the third option, 'I do not want to respond at this time' leaves the inquiry as pending.

Q: How do I respond to an inquiry?
A:

If you click on the name of the person sending the inquiry, you will open up a form that allows you to send a response.

The inquiry is considered pending until you do one of two things. First, you can choose 'Yes, I am interested', in which case you fill out the reply form and the employer receives this information. Secondly, you choose 'No, I am not interested' in which case you do nothing more, and the employer receives a notification that you are not interested.
