Q: It is my first time to visit. What should I do?
A: Welcome! You should start by determining if JewishJobs.com is a good online resource for you. Check which job seekers should use this site. If you qualify, then you should begin by adding your resume to JewishJobs.com. This is a good idea because you will be able to email your resume and a cover letter automatically from JewishJobs.com to any job you find on JewishJobs.com. Additionally you can sign up for our weekly email, Jewish Jobs Weekly, which is sent to 64,196 subscribers each Wednesday.


Q: How long does it take to add my resume?
A: That depends on how much detail you include in your resume. If you have a resume completed, then maybe about 5 minutes to cut and paste it.


Q: When I post my resume online, how long does it take for it to be available for employers?
A: Seconds.


Q: How much does it cost to use the site as a job seeker?
A: You may post a profile, a resume, search jobs, and sign up to receive Jewish Jobs Weekly free of charge.


Q: I forgot my password. What should I do?
A: To have the website automatically email your information to you, please click here. Fill out the "Forgot your Login and Password Form", and the website will automatically email your information to the email address we have on file.


Q: My email address is changing. Can you please make the change?
A: To change or modify your account information including your email address, please log into your account and alter the appropriate information by clicking on "My Account".


Q: I keep on receiving the Jewish Jobs Weekly. How do I stop receiving emails?
A: Click HERE and unsubscribe. Be sure to unsubscribe the correct email address. Look at your Jewish Jobs Weekly email at the top or bottom for the subscribed email address.


Q: I'm having trouble logging in. What do I do?
A: To log in, you need to use the same email address as when you opened the account. Once you are logged into JewishJobs.com, you may change your email address to a different address. If you are still having trouble logging in, contact us and we will help you!


Q: How long are resumes kept in online?
A: We automatically retire resumes after 18 months. If your resume was online, and it is no longer online, it might be because you posted your resume online more than 18 months ago.


Q: Are employers that post jobs on your website punctual about getting back to applicants?
A: Most employers do not reply unless the employer is interested in learning more about you. Additionally it is not likely that an employer will contact you just to thank you for your resume submission.


Q: Should I keep sending in cover letters until I hear back, or should I just sit and wait?
A: JewishJobs.com recommends emailing the employer once. Many times an employer will receive between 30-100 applicants or more for a position. Sending in multiple resumes would probably annoy the employer and greatly diminsh your chances of getting a call back.


Q: How often do you remove 'old' jobs that probably are filled?
A: No job posted will be more than 60 days old. When employers post a job on JewishJobs.com, the employer decides how long the job will stay online. Employers have a choice of posting jobs 30, 45 or 60 days on our site. As a result, the job will come off the website either 30, 45 or 60 days after the employer has posted the job.


Q: How do I know if my resume is online?
A: Please log into your account and look on the left. The website will say if your resume is online (yes or no).


Q: How do I delete my resume?
A: Please log into your account and click on Resumes. Then simply remove the resume in question.


Q: Who posts the jobs on JewishJobs.com?
A: The organizations post their jobs on our site. We do not post the jobs for the organizations. They post their own jobs on our site.


Q: How do I edit my Resume on JewishJobs.com?
A: First you must log into your account and Remove your old resume. Second you must then upload your current resume to the site.


Q: How do I know if my application was received?
A: We can only tell you about applications sent through our system. For those job applications, please log into your account and click on "Jobs" and then "Job Application Log".


Q: How do I delete or update my resume?
A: To delete or update your resume, log into your account and click through to the resumes management page. Then, on your resume, the site will say "remove" or "delete" at the end of your resume. Delete your resume. To update the resume that we have on file, simply upload a new resume to your account.


Q: I am currently employed do not want my employer to know that I am looking. Am I able to apply for positions without exposing my resume to all employers who might browse the site?
A: Once you have a Profile posted, then you can make your profile confidential. Log into the site and click on "Profile". Your Profile default is opted-out. You may opt your Profile out so that when Employers search Candidate Profiles, your Profile is purposely excluded from being among the possible search results. Your Confidential Profile allows you to use our site with limited exposure to Employers.
