Job Seeker Questions
What should I NAME my RESUME.doc and Why?
It's important when you upload your Resume into your Job Seeker account that you give the document a name. 
 
Employers who use the Resume Search tool will see this resume name in their search results.  Also, if you apply to a job posting, this is the Resume that you will attach.
 
A Resume named 'Mike Smith_Project Engineer' or 'Lisa - Director of Retail Sales' is much more attention grabbing and appealing in a search result list than 'Res 10-2010' or similar.
 
Why am I required to provide a text version of my resume if I upload it as an attachment?

You must paste a text version of your resume in the job seeker profile in order for your career information to be searchable by employers [i.e. keywords].  Uploaded attachments are not searchable.

Employer Questions
Do I have to Register to Post a Job?
Yes. You must be a registered Employer in order to Post a Job.
  
I created a Job Posting. Why doesn't it show up in Job Search Results?
You may need to "Run" your job posting. Go to "My Account" and click on ">" to the left of the job posting you wish to run. 
  
Can Job Seekers search for Job Postings by Employer name?

If you'd like Job Seekers to find your company's job postings by typing "ABC Company" into the keyword search bar, you will need to include your company name within the text of each of your job descriptions.  Otherwise, if they happen across one of your postings, they can select to "View all postings by this Employer".


I filled my Job opening. How do I stop my Job Post from running?
From the "My Account" page, click on the "Stop" square link to the left of the job posting.
  
What Industry or Job Category should I select for my Job Posting?

Select an Industry that most closely relates to your employment environment and a Job Category that most closely relates to your job title and work responsibilities.

If you don't see an applicable listing, please contact ShellyJ@kinsa.com and we'll help you select one, or we'll add a new one if appropriate.

Privacy
How do I keep my name / contact information private?

You may choose to have some or all of your personal information remain private (unseen by Employers). Select "Update Profile" from My Account page.  Your personal privacy preferences are at the bottom of the form.

To hide all of your personal information:
1. Answer "NO" to the question "Include Profile with Listing"
2. Do not enter your street address or phone number on the listing
3. To remain anonymous, be sure to upload a Blind Resume (without your name and contact details) to your profile only.
This will keep all of your personal information private.
 
An Employer interested in your blind resume will be able to contact you via anonymous email using the "Contact Job Seeker" link on the site. The email address you provided is NOT shown - it is used by the site to route anonymous contact requests to your email without making your email address visible to others.
 
If my information is private how can an Employer contact me?

When your blind resume appears, instead of showing your contact information the following appears: "This Job Seeker has chosen to remain private. You may contact this Job Seeker via anonymous email by clicking here." The prospective Employer completes an on-line form and the system sends you an email without revealing your information to the prospective Employer.
