FAQ - Job Seeker
You may go through our Product Tour to get familiar with the JobsDB online system.
In the new version of the JobsDB Job Seeker system, various new features are provided to improve job seekers' experience in job searching and application processes with better usability and greater flexibility.
Streamlined Login Experience
Login using e-mail address instead of username
One of the greatest differences that all job seekers will first experience is the way job seekers log into the system. In the new site, job seekers will no longer login with their username. Instead, they use their registered e-mail addresses to login. One of the greatest advantages of using registered e-mail address for login is that job seekers no longer need to memorize their old-fashioned usernames, especially when most users could not register their first-choice usernames at the first place. Using e-mail address for login also helps reminding job seekers to keep their e-mail address up to date for primary contact purposes.
Login once, use globally
In the previous versions, job seekers interested in international postings have to register and login job seeker accounts at each region. In the new site, job seekers only have to login once, and they will be able to manage their resumes, cover letters, search jobs, apply for jobs, handle resume requests and manage their account settings in all regions.
Enhanced Resume and Cover Letter Management
Create multiple resumes and cover letters
In previous versions, each job seeker account can only create one online resume using the Resume Builder, upload one resume attachment, and create one cover letter in his/her account. Now each job seeker can create up to 10 resumes and 10 cover letters in all regions. These resumes and cover letters can either be prepared online, or be uploaded from local files. This provides a greater flexibility for job seekers to apply for positions of different job natures using their tailor-made resumes and cover letters.
Import contents from existing resumes
Whilst creating a new resume, the system allow you to import the contents of another existing resume. This provides a speedy way for job seekers to create a new resume based on an existing resume and then make further changes.
Resume and Cover Letter Management
In order to manage multiple resumes and cover letters, job seeker will have to give them unique names. Besides creating and editing, resumes and cover letters can also be renamed; or copied as new resume / cover letter (provided that the number of resumes / cover letters has not reached the maximum limit).
Resume Extraction Service
A resume created by uploading a local file can be extracted as plain-text so that employers can search for you more easily, provided that the resume's exposure level is set to be searchable.
Download online resumes and cover letters as PDF files
Upon online creation of resumes and cover letters, job seekers can download the PDF copies of their online resumes and cover letters for their own references.
Improved Job Searching Features
Define more precise criteria and get more precise search results
Job seekers can specify keywords for searching by matching all of the words, exact phrase or at least one of the words. Job seekers who prefer specific company benefits may also search for jobs by benefits.
View job postings with Detailed Mode
Job seekers can view job ads by using the Detailed Mode in the Job Search Results page. This saves job seeker a lot of time because they don't have to open the job ads one by one in order to view the most basic information of the job.
Add Personal Notes to Favourite Jobs
If a job seeker is interested in a job ad, in addition to saving the job to his/her MyJobsDB Saved Jobs list, he/she can specify his/her own comments about the job by using the Personal Notes feature.
Multiple Job Alerts
Compared to previous versions which only one job alert can be subscribed, job seekers who are eager to look for jobs may subscribe to more than one job alert with different job search criteria. Up to 10 job alerts across all regions are supported.
Subscribe to RSS feeds based on job search results
Besides job alert e-mails, job seekers who are familiar with RSS feed subscription may search for jobs based on their own criteria and subscribe to the job search results using their favorite RSS aggregators.
State-of-the-art Job Application Process
Batch Job View and Batch Job Application
You may select multiple job ads on the job search results page to view and/or apply for them in one go. This saves you time to open the job ads and read / apply for them one by one.
Apply for jobs on mobile devices (country-specific)
With the increasing popularity of web applications on mobile devices, the JobsDB Mobile Site supports simple yet effective job search and job application functions that job seekers can always search and apply for their favorite jobs on the go.
