MY PAGE Tab

This is your page.  On it there are four sections.

Section #1 is your “Profile”.

Section #2 is “My Resume/CV” where you can post your resume, or Curriculum Vitae.

Section #3 is your “My Photos”.

Section #4 is your “Comment Wall”, where you, or others, can post on your page.

NOTE: Although you were asked some “profile” questions when you first signed up to become a member you can “edit” your answers on your “My Page” now that you are a member.  Click the “edit” button for your “Profile Information” section, and you are able to revise your answers.  Want to not show your age?  Use the drop down menu under “month, day, year”, and opt out of showing that.  Want to change the job category, or categories, you are listed in?  Check, or uncheck, the appropriate boxes.  Want to change your e-mail address?  Go ahead.

 

JOBS AVAILABLE Tab (For job seekers, and job posters.)

If you’re looking for a job this is where you want to look to see what employment opportunities have been posted by others.  We currently have ten job categories.

Here’s how to find an employment opportunity:

Step #1: On any page click the “Jobs Available” tab.  You can also get to the “Jobs Available” page by clicking the “Members Find A Job” box which is just below the pictures of our members on the home page.

Step #2: Once on the “Jobs Available” page click on the job “Category” you’re interested in.

Step #3: Scan the job opportunities available.

Step #4: Contact the employer directly for an opportunity you’re interested in.

If you are looking to hire someone this is where you want to post your employment opportunity.

Here’s how you post an employment opportunity:

On the home page click the “Employers Post A Job” box which is just below the pictures of our members.  Once on the “Add a Job” page it’s five easy steps to posting your job opportunity.

Step #1:  Specify the “Job Title”.  Are you looking for an editor, assistant editor, etc.?

Step #2:  “Post” the description of the job along with any relevant information you want to tell prospective candidates.  Provide as much information as you would like, ESPECIALLY WHERE THE JOB IS LOCATEDIMPORTANTDon’t forget to tell prospective candidates the best way to contact you.  We would suggest both a phone number, and e-mail address.

Step #3:  Choose a “Category” from the drop down menu.  Editor job opportunities go in the Pic/Snd/Mx Editor “category”; Assistant Editor job opportunities go in the Asst. or Apprentice Editor “category”, and so on.  Make sure your “Job Title” from Step 1 matches the “Category” you put it in, unless you have a job opportunity that belongs in the “Other Positions” category.

Step #4: If you want to add a URL, or Tag, go ahead.   “Attach Files” if you want to include some type of attachment for prospective candidates to view.

Step #5:  Click the “Add a Job” tab, and you’re done.

Your employment opportunity will now appear under the JOBS AVAILABLE Tab in the specific category you selected it to appear in.  IMPORTANT:  When you hire someone, or if your situation changes, and you no longer need to hire someone, please go back to your job posting and delete it.  Deleting is easy.  Just pull up your job posting.  On that page you’ll see an “Options” button.  Click it, and you’ll see “Delete Job”.  Click “Delete Job”, and it’s gone.  Unfortunately this has to be done manually as only you will know when you have filled your position, or no longer have a need for that position, and therefore we must rely on you to go back and delete it.  It will take a bit of managing on your part, which we do appreciate.  Thanks.

 

HIRE ME! Tab

Are you currently available for work?  If so, this is where you want to let the community know.

Here’s how:

Step #1: Go to your “Profile Information” section on your “My Page”.

Step #2: Click the “edit” button.  For the “profile question” “What Post Production employment opportunity are you seeking?” check the category/categories you want to be listed in.  (You actually had to do this when you signed up to become a member.)  Despite what you may have checked off when you signed up you can now change your category, or categories, if you want to.

Step #3: For the “profile question” “Are you available/looking for a job”? use the pull down menu to click “yes”.

Step #4: You are now listed as available for employment under the HIRE ME! Tab in the category/categories of your choice.

Step #5: Make sure your RESUME is up to date, and posted in the “My Resume/CV” section on your “My Page”.

Step #6: Once you are employed return to your “profile questions” and change “Are you available/looking for a job”? to “no”.  This will then remove you from the HIRE ME! Tab until the next time you list yourself as available for employment.  IMPORTANT: Make sure you update this “profile question” regularly, depending on your employment status.  If you forget to change it to “no” when you are employed it will appear that you are always available for a job, which will make employers wonder why you can’t find a job.  Unfortunately, switching your availability status has to be done manually as only you will know when you have found a position, or prefer to take some time off; therefore you must manage your availability status.  Thanks.
