Frequently Asked Questions JobisJob

JobisJob for job seekers

Searching jobs

How do I apply to jobs?

After you've run a search, click on job titles to view the job offer in detail. This takes you out of JobisJob to the website listing the job. Application instructions will vary from site to site.
For jobs where we can't locate the application page, please, read carefully through the 'How to apply' section.
Application for job offers found using JobisJob always takes place outside JobisJob, namely in our providers’ websites. How to apply for a job offer found using JobisJob depends entirely on the providers’ application system, so unfortunately JobisJob cannot give you any assistance on this issue.

Where do I have to send my CV to, can I upload it?

Please do not send us any CVs. We do not have any CV database. JobisJob is a search engine and we automatically extract the job offers from various sources, and do not have any further information on neither the companies nor the positions offered. For this reason, we simply would not know what to do with your CV.
Please read carefully through the application details of the job offer because there you will find the details on if and how a CV can be submitted.

How do I get emails notifying me of new jobs?

We'll send you a daily or weekly alert to notify you of new job listings that match your criteria. All you have to do is:

  1. Run a search.
  2. Drill down the search results using the 'Filter jobs by' column. (Optional)

Alternatively, you may add more terms to the 'What' box at the top of the results page and search again. Also, don't forget to use the 'Where' box.

What is 'My jobs'?

'My jobs' is the part of the JobisJob website that you can use to save data that might be useful in the course of your job search with JobisJob.

My Shortlist: JobisJob offers you this space to manage the job offers you have read or saved for further reading.

My Searches: In this section you can find the search profiles you have recently used. By clicking on a search profile, you automatically carry out the search for the keywords involved.This saves you from typing in the same keywords again and again every time you would like to carry out a search.

My Alerts: Here you will find a resume of the Job Alerts you have activated in JobisJob. This list does not only give you a quick overview of the Job Alerts, but also allows you to adapt any Job Alert immediately. This service is only available for registered users


What is 'Share Options'?

You're probably not the only one looking for a better job. So if you find a job that's not for you, but could be perfect for someone you know, go to the 'Job Tools' box on the right site of the job offer. Then using the 'Share Options' you can send it to your friends.

What is 'Job Tools'?

JobisJob always tries to give you a maximum of information on the job offers in our result list. That’s what 'Job Tools' is all about. Here you can find additional services related to the job offer, like recommended searches closely related to the result you are inquiring for, a link for locating the company that is advertising the vacancy, or for sending the job offer to a friend for whom you think it might be of use.

What does blocking Jobs mean?

If you prefer excluding jobs advertised by a particular company or job board from your lists of results and job alerts, you can do this by clicking on the link 'Block' found in the list of results.
To remember which companies and job boards you currently exclude from your searches, go to 'My Shortlist'. In 'Blocked' you will find your list of blocked sources, and a way to unblock them individually, if you wish so. (Registered users only)
Please take into consideration that blocking entire job boards can reduce the number of search results drastically.

Why do I see older/expired listings on the site?

While we do a great deal to reduce the probability that you will see an older/expired listing on the JobisJob site, old/expired listings can appear if the source site (where we pulled the information from) still has the job active on their site.
If you are an employer that would like to have a listing pulled, please contact the source site directly. The job would quickly clear from our results after the source site removed it.
