For Job Seekers:
When applying for a posted job, please consider the following guidelines.
● Do NOT include information such as marital status, gender, sexual orientation, etc.
● Do NOT include your social security number or your date of birth.
● Do NOT include your bank account number, your credit, or debit card number.
● If you only have one address, there is no need for both the present and permanent to be listed.
1. Emphasize skills, achievements, and what you learned relevant to the position you are applying for.Start all sentences with strong action verbs, but do not create a task list (Example: close the register).
2. Avoid being redundant. If you have had several jobs in the same industry, or several positions that enhanced the same skill, consider how each job taught you something different from the one before (i.e. you didn’t learn to track inventory twice.)
3. Keep it to one page.
4. Use one font type and a font size that is easy to read. Margins should be between .5 in—1 in. Make things stand out by using bold, italics, and underlining. Use a font that is professional, but distinguishes you.
5. Provide a professional e-mail address. No one wants to send a job offer to an email address such as: swag4lifeAllDay1@gmail.com (email address is just an example).
6. Make sure that your voicemail greeting is tasteful and remember to check your messages.
7. Include education, work, internship, and leadership experience relevant to the position you are applying for.
8. Use numbers, percentages, and amounts of money to describe job duties. Were you a top seller? Did you receive any recognition or award?
To hire the most qualified candidates, please provide as much information as possible. Be sure to adhere to the following:
1. Each posting should represent a real and currently available job. Jobs posted must not cost the applicant anything to apply.
2. Don’t discriminate. Jobs must be made available to qualified candidates regardless of age, race, gender and sexual orientation.
3. Leave click-bait out of titles by keeping job titles short and simple. Use job descriptions to set clear expectations and don’t leave out potential deal-breakers. Include location, education requirements, company perks, and other specifics in the job description.
4. Respect applicant privacy. Information gathered in the application process should never be made available to third parties.
