THREE WAYS TO APPLY FOR JOBS
1. Instructions included in job posting on how to apply - The organization has indicated in the job posting how to apply. The most popular way is to send your resume and cover letter to a specific email address.
Therefore, when you click the orange APPLY button, it will bring you to the bottom of the listing and direct you to view the job description for the instructions.
2. Orange APPLY button will direct you to organization's website or a specific web page for you to apply.
You may come across job postings that require you to apply via an organization's website OR a specific web page. Therefore, if you notice you have left the CharityVillage website after clicking the APPLY button, this is the reason why.
3. Orange APPLY button requires you to submit your application through the CharityVillage website. Your application will then go directly into the CharityVillage account of the Employer where they will review all applications.
ATTACHING A RESUME
You will be re-directed to the bottom of the page where there is a drop down menu called Choose or Upload Resume. This menu will allow you to either:
1. Upload a a new tailored resume from your computer to attach to the application. It will then be saved to your account under the RESUMES section of your profile.
2. Select a resume you already have uploaded to your account under the RESUMES section (found under the PROFILE section in the menu bar located to the left hand side of your job seeker dashboard). You will see the file name appear in the drop down menu.
ATTACHING COVER LETTER AND/OR ADDITIONAL DOCUMENTS
You are given two choices for uploading a cover letter:
A) +Attach/Upload New - This option allows you to upload a cover letter from your computer, or choose one that you already have saved to your profile.
B) + Type/Paste New - This option allows you to type a cover letter directly into the Cover Letter box that will appear, or copy and paste from a document.
Please Note: Your chances of being selected for an interview will increase with the more information you have attached to your profile. You can update your Profile information at any time, and the information will automatically be reflected for ALL jobs you submitted previously.
Upload Additional Documents to Application
If you have additional documents you would like to attach to a job application, you can do so here.
You may come across job postings that have questions for you to answer. These questions have been created by the organization and you must answer before you can submit your application. These may range from multiple choice to short answer questions, and will appear below the Cover Letter box.
Once you've submitted an application, two orange buttons will appear. One indicates the day you applied and the other says Manage Jobs. Click Manage Jobs to bring you to the job manager located in your account.
HOW TO FIND JOBS YOU'VE APPLIED TO OR SAVED TO YOUR PROFILE
The Job Manager stores all jobs you've applied and those that you may have started an application for, but decided to save it instead of submitting it. The status will say APPLIED if an application was submitted successfully, or RESEARCHING if you started one but did not submit it.
To apply to the job that says RESEARCHING, click on it and then select VIEW JOB POSTING. You will be redirected to the job listing where you click the APPLY button.
