Job Seeker Account

How much does a Job Seeker account cost?

There is no charge to create an account or post your resume.

What does a Job Seeker’s Registered Account entail?

Once created, you can tailor your account by adding contact information, past work experience and more to facilitate the job application process. You do not need to immediately upload your resume to your account. This can be done at a later date.

How do I delete my account?

Please contact us to delete your account and all of your information.

How can I upload my resume?

You can add, modify, or delete your resume by selecting “My Resumes” under the menu bar. You may post more than one resume in your account. 

I don't want my current employer to see my resume, can I hide this?

Yes! Once you upload your resume, there is a toggle button: "Allow employers to search for my resume." Once that is turned on, you will see a search box underneath that says, "Choose employers who you want to hide your profile from." Simply type in the name of your current employer and you will be invisible to them!

NOTE: If you see your employer listed multiple times, that means they have more than one account and you should repeat these steps to make sure each account is blocked from seeing you. If you can't find them at all, that typically means they do not have an account with APA psycCareers. 

Should I use a separate resume for every job? 

Absolutely. No two job descriptions are the same. You must customize your resume for each and every job you apply to. Take time to review the job description carefully and research the company. Make sure your resume includes the required skills and technology requested in the job description. Also be sure you reference the work processes and specific keywords mentioned in the posting.

How do I change my password or email? 

Log in with your current email address and password. Click "My Account" found under the Job Seeker navigation button, then select the blue icon (Edit Main Info) link next to your name.

How do I edit my contact information?

Log in with your current email address and password. Click "My Account" found under the Job Seeker navigation button, then select the blue icon (Edit Main Info) link next to your name.
 

Job Searching

How can I stay current on new jobs that match my resume?

Sign up for job alerts to have a list of new postings automatically emailed to you. You can create and edit your alerts anytime to help customize the types of jobs you are receiving.

To create/modify a job alert, simply log into your account and on the navigation menu, select “Job Alerts.” Select "edit" to modify an alert—you can also manage how frequently each alert is emailed to you by selecting an option under "Notification Frequency" when editing a job alert.  

What are the different ways I can apply for a job?

Employers can set up their job postings in three different ways:

  1. Job seekers complete a form that will automatically email their resume to the employer
  2. Direct job seekers to the employer's website
  3. An employer may ask that you apply directly through APA psycCareers

Sometimes, an employer will post additional information on how to apply in the job description. It is important to read the entire job posting and follow any contact instructions listed. If you have any questions on how an employer wants you to apply to a specific posting, contact us.

Do I need to be registered to apply for a job?

No! Anyone can apply for a job on our site. However, you will not be able to store your resume or keep track of the jobs you've applied to unless you are registered and logged in at the time you apply for a job.

 

Job Searching - Basic and Advanced Techniques

A basic job search can be found in many places throughout the APA psycCareers. Our main homepage features the basic search at the top of the page. To use this type of search, simply type in a keyword and/or location and click "Find a Job."

If you're looking for a more in-depth job search, select "Search Jobs" in the upper left of the navigation. On the left-hand side of the search results page, enter keywords and the fields necessary for your search.

If you’re looking to narrow down search results, use the Browse tab in the search box.

Be sure to perform multiple searches using a variety of search parameters, as employers may not always post their jobs in areas you think. If you are not getting good results, try broadening your search by reducing the number of parameters used.

What are saved jobs?

You may choose to save a list of jobs to review at a later date. You must have an account to save jobs. Your saved jobs can be found by hovering over "Search" in the navigation menu, and selecting "Saved Jobs." Your saved jobs will be remembered until you choose to delete them.

NOTE: If a job expires and is removed from our system, you will not be able to recover the saved job.

Why haven't I heard back from the company after I applied?

Did you follow up? If you don't follow up with an email or phone call, how do you know the company received your application? Ask where they are in the review process and then ask if they received your application. While it would be nice to receive an update from the company, it doesn't always happen. Take control by following up and get the answer to your question.

I already had the interview, should I follow up?

The best way to get this question answered is to ask the interviewer during your interview. Always ask when you should follow up and the best way to reach out to your interviewer. Once armed with this information, follow the recommended steps to the letter.
