Do I need to register?
No. You do not need to register to view job listings or research companies and sectors. However, you do need to register to apply for jobs, receive personalized job suggestions, save your search results or subscribe to the Morning Coffee and Weekly Minute newsletters.
Do I need a resume?
No. You can build a professional profile on our site without a resume. However, in order to apply for a job on FINS, you must upload a resume to send to the employer. By uploading your resume, you will also be able to receive personalized job suggestions and make yourself searchable to employers.
Can I edit my resume or cover letter once I've uploaded it?
Yes. Not only can you edit or delete any of your current resumes and cover letters, you can upload up to 10 of each at one time. Also, you can easily update your profile by uploading a new resume at any time.
How do I update my profile?
To edit your profile, click on My Profile or select the My Profile tab within the My Dashboard section of the header. You can edit any of the fields here or upload a new resume to replace the existing information.
Where do the Suggested Jobs come from? How can I refine or change them?
FINS creates personalized job suggestions based on the information in your profile. To modify your job suggestions, adjust the keywords in your "Responsibilities" and "Skills" sections of your profile. We are continuously refining our search results to ensure that you receive the most appropriate jobs. If you have a specific search that you would like to receive updates from, you can also create a custom search alert for Finance. Enter your location and any desired search terms, and every email you get will be specific to your location and interests.
How do I know if the recruiter received my job application?
When you have successfully applied for a job through FINS, you will receive and email confirming your application. However, if you apply directly through an employer's website, you may receive an email from that website but FINS cannot guarantee that your application was received. You will be notified that you have exited FINS when applying for these jobs.
I'm having trouble with my job application. What can I do?
If you are applying for a job that has a banner at the top of the page with text that reads "You are no longer on FINS.com", please look for a contact link on the site to contact the employer directly. If you cannot find any contact links, please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org with the title and company of the job you are applying for. If you are applying for a job on FINS (without the banner) and are having difficulty, please send and email to email@example.com and a member of the FINS will contact you immediately.
