Refresh Your Job Seeker Account So Employers Can Find You

Posted by Rob Riggins

Have you created profiles on several job boards and your targeted company sites? Did you realize you need to log in on a regular basis to let recruiters know you’re still in the job market?

When employers search a resume database they typically only search for job seekers who have been “active” in the last 30 days.

Recruiters don’t want to wade through resumes from job seekers who are no longer in the job market. And employers assume you’re probably no longer looking for a job if your account has not been accessed in the last 30 days or so.

Logging in also puts you at the top of the recruiter’s search results. That’s because search results are presented to recruiters chronologically. The more often you log in, the more likely you’re at the top of the pile.

What was that login and password?

If you can’t remember your login and password, call Customer Service at 703-871-0037, Option 4, or via email at [email protected]

After login you’ll see My Account Dashboard. While you’re here, review your Profile, Saved Searches, Job Agents, etc. to make sure they are up-to-date. If you need to update your resume, check out The Most Important Improvement to Your Resume.

Curious Where the Last Updated Information Appears?

The date of your most recent login is reflected under the information for your Default Resume.

If you click onĀ This is your Default Resume, you’ll see the Last Updated date in parentheses.

Remember, log in to refresh your ClearedJobs.Net job seeker account at least once a month so employers know you’re still in the market for a job. Do the same on all the company website where you have registered.
