I forgot my password. Help!

Forgot password imageClick the “Log In” login link in the menu at the top of the screen. On the next page, underneath the “Log in/Register” buttons, you’ll see a link that says “Forgot your password?” Click that link and follow the instructions to reset your password.

Or, just reset your password here. You’ll need to know the username or email address that you used to register originally.

If I see a job that's right for me, how do I apply?

Apply for Job buttonEach job posting contains a purple “APPLY FOR JOB” button. Click the button and follow the instructions to apply. If you don’t see this button, either the job posting has expired or the deadline for applications has already passed 🙁 .

You need to register before you can apply for jobs. One benefit of registering is that you’ll be able to keep track of all the jobs that you’ve already applied for. It would be embarrassing to apply more than once, right?

The job alert(s) I set up are not emailing the job postings that I expected. How do I change or delete them?

I want to save/bookmark a job listing for safe keeping. How do I do that?

Save this job fieldAfter you log in, you can save any job under your account by clicking on the purple “SAVE THIS JOB” button near the job title. You can even write yourself a note to remember why you loved it and what you need to do next to make it yours. After you click the button, find the listing under your account on the “My Saved Jobs” page.

Last time I was here, I saved some cool jobs. How do I find that list again?

My Saved Jobs menuAfter you log in, you can see your saved jobs, by clicking your username or the “My Saved Jobs” link in the menu at the top of the screen.

I applied for a job but haven't heard back from the recruiter yet. How do I know they got my application?

Every job recruiter has a different system and timeline for following up with applicants. That being said, many recruiters don’t contact applicants until after the application deadline. If the deadline has passed and you want to be sure that a recruiter received your application, find the original job posting and look for a contact email address. Send the recruiter an email and let them know that you applied through “Seven Days Jobs” and on what date. Providing this information will help the recruiter find your application and may signal that you are enthusiastic and serious about applying.
