Job Seeker Questions
Why am I required to provide a text version of my Resume if I upload it as an attachment?
You must enter or copy/paste a text version of your resume in the job seeker profile in order for your career information to be searchable by employers [i.e. keywords].  Uploaded attachments are not searchable.
What should I NAME my RESUME and Why?
It's important that when you import your Resume into your iHobnob Job Seeker account, you give the document a name. 
 
Employers who use the Resume Search tool will see this resume name in their search results.  Also, if you apply to a job posting on iHobnob, this is the Resume that you will be required to attach.
 
A Resume named 'Mike Smith_Project Engineer' or 'Lisa - Director of Retail Sales' is much more attention grabbing and appealing in a search result list than 'Res 10-2013' or similar.

Employer Questions
Do I have to register to place a job posting on the site?
Yes. You must be a registered Employer in order to post a job.
I created a job posting, but it does not show up in the search results. Why?
You may need to "Run" your job posting. Go to My Account and click on "Run" to the left of the job posting you wish to run. 
Can Job Seekers search for my job postings by Company name?
If you'd like Job Seekers to find your company's job postings by typing "ABC Company" into the keyword search bar, you will need to include your company name within the text of each of your job postings.  Otherwise, if they happen across one of your postings, they can select to "View all postings by this Employer".
I filled my job opening. How do I stop my job posting from running?
From the My Account page, click on the "Stop" link to the left of the job posting.
What Category should I put my job posting in?
Select a Category that most closely relates to your job title and responsibilities. If you don't see an applicable Category listed, please contact us and we'll help you select one, or we'll create a new category.
Privacy
I don't want my name, phone number or email address to appear in iHobnob.com's results. What should I do?
You can have all your personal information remain private. Update your personal privacy preferences from the My Account page.
If all my information is private how can an Employer contact me?
When your Resume appears, instead of showing your contact information the following appears: "This Job Seeker has chosen to remain private. You may contact this Job Seeker via anonymous email by clicking here." The prospective Employer completes an on-line form and the system sends you an email without revealing your information to the prospective Employer.
What is your privacy policy?
See Privacy Policy for details.
Regions
How do Regions work?
All states and any city with a population of 100,000 or more are listed as a region. When you register, create a resume, or create job listings, you select a region. When you browse jobs or resumes, listings in your region will be shown first.
What region should I put my job posting in?
The region the job is located in [that the job seeker will need to reside in or relocate to]. By default the region will be the region you specified on your profile when you registered, but you can change this at any time.
I don't see my city listed. What region should I choose?
Choose either the city closest to you (or your job posting) or the state you live in (or that the job will be located in).
Will my job posting be visible in searches conducted by job seekers from other regions?
Yes. The system will, however, always show a job seeker the job postings in their region first, then jobs outside their region.
