Stand out from the pack, connect with employers and get hired for the right role with these new features.
Your job seeker profile acts like universal resume, ready at your fingertips and available any time. It adds personality beyond a one-page PDF, giving you the chance to show hiring managers and recruiters your full self. You can – and should – save multiple versions of your actual resume to your account, but here are a few ways we’ve recently upgraded your ability to expand beyond that document for potential employers.
Simplify your job search process
Whether you found a company you like and want to apply immediately, or you need to update your resume and manage communication preferences, your CareerBuilder profile allows you to do it all – and with the convenience of logging in with your Facebook or Google accounts. Verify your identity and make it easy to stay focused on the job hunt (not juggling logins). Your CareerBuilder job seeker account brings together your information in one place to put you in front of hundreds of employers. Complete your profile, apply to jobs and manage your job search with one simple sign-on process.
After you’ve logged in, use these four new sections to distinguish yourself from other candidates – your social networks, professional summary, certifications and skills proficiency. Companies hiring through CareerBuilder (read: again, hundreds) showcase their culture and the team members they’re looking for, so, it’s your turn to show off what makes you unique! Do you have a professional Instagram where you share your projects and accomplishments? Or are you racking up those certifications in quarantine? Adding these specifics will help you stand out as an individual who has a variety of skills and experience, putting you on the radar of hiring managers.
Set your preferences
When you sign up to receive emails from a company about its open roles (and you should be doing this!), you now have more control than ever over the information that you’re providing. Your email address is now “hashed” – like encryption – so your personal information is private, but employers can still contact you. You can also adjust your email subscription preferences to choose who you want to hear from, whether it’s only one company or everyone.
And if email isn’t your thing, sign-up for texts! You can 2-way message with recruiters and hiring managers, avoiding the pileup of content in your inbox and keeping you on top of your job search.
These new features to your profile, privacy and communications preferences empower you to stay focused on what’s important to you while you search for your next great role.
