Why are some contact fields hidden or locked on the resumés?
Resumé posters have the option of hiding certain
contact information from the web. Qualified employers can still view this
information. Please see below for more information.
Why would a job-seeker hide contact information on their resumé?
All privacy settings are optional
there a couple of good reasons to choose them.
- Employees looking to leave their current position may want to hide this
fact from their current employer. At the highest privacy levels (see privacy
section below), registered employers can only contact a job-seeker through an
email form. The email address and other contact information is never shown.
- It can prevent an email address from being recorded and used for
unscrupulous purposes such as spam. An email address that is hidden can
still be viewed by qualified employers.
- Since access to locked fields is only allowed to qualified employers,
any interest shown in your resumé will be by those who are serious about
hiring. Please remember there is no way to control who is viewing your
contact information if the fields have not been protected.
Aren't you just trying to get job-seekers to protect
their contact information so employers have to pay to see it?
No. The privacy options were requested by users who
didn't want to expose their personal information to search engines and email
harvest tools. As well as supporting the site, the fee acts as a brake against
misuse by ensuring that those who have access to your information are serious
about finding an employee. The contents of all resumés are always fully
viewable so those interested are able to review the information before any
purchase is needed.
How are the keywords used?
On our view resumés
page, the keywords pulldown
works both as a standalone filter or together with the other pulldowns. Resumé
posters can choose up to 6 of these keywords from a list. Note: These keywords
represent 6 areas of expertise that are chosen by the job-seeker. There is no
weighting assigned to individual keywords.
What is a Reference ID and how is it used?
Each job ad and resumé posted on our site is
assigned a unique reference id. If you have posted a job or resumé you can
navigate directly to it by using the reference id as part of the url. For
instance, a job with a reference id of 5984 can be directly accessed
like this: (useful for linking to...)
I have a Geography/GIS website, can I link your site?
As an employer, do I have to register?
There is currently no charge for posting a job. To
do so however, you must first create a posting profile. Follow the register link
at the Post Job
page. If you come across a resumé that has all its contact
information protected (
), you can buy 1 month increments of browse time to view
the protected fields. The cost is $50 US. Note:
One purchase unlocks (
resumés with protected fields. You can purchase browse time through the
'My Account' page once you have created your posting profile.

your username (email address) and password. If you need to register, click
the "Create Account" link above the login form. There is also a link to the

Can I post a job not relating to GIS?

the GIS community and therefore we prefer that jobs posted on the site are in
some way eco/spatial/engineering or GIS related.
Is there a charge for posting my resumé?

Will my resumé expire from your site?
A resumé that remains un-edited or un-refreshed (see
question below on editing) will expire after three months. Note: It will not be deleted from your
account, it will just be hidden from the resumé listings until you either edit or refresh it.
What privacy options are available if I post my resumé?

privacy for your resumé. The table below outlines these options.

|Visible||Normal||Your information will appear as normal.
|Protected||Only employers who have registered with the site will be able to view the information.

displayed under any circumstances.
Note: If you choose this option for your email address, registered employers will still be able
to send you a message through a webform, however, the address itself will not be visible.
