Do I have to pay for FINS services?
No. All FINS services are free to anyone interested in the current job market.
Do I need to register?
No. You don’t need to register to view job listings or research companies and sectors. But, you do need to register to apply for jobs, receive personalized job suggestions, save your search results, or subscribe to alerts and subscriptions (not available at this time).
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.
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, weight the “Responsibilities” and “Skills” sections of the two most recent positions listed in your profile by including as many specific keywords about what you have done and what you are looking to do. (This will also help recruiters who are looking to fill your desired positions find you more easily).
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.
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. That way, you can easily tailor the information you send to each potential employer.
