Frequently Asked Questions
Before submitting a question or request, please review our frequently asked questions to see if one of these addresses your concern:
How do I use CollegeRecruiter.com to find a job? How do I send my resume to you?
We're not a placement agency so we don't match up candidates with employment opportunities. We're a job board so candidates should first run a search for internships or entry level jobs which are of interest to them. Then, apply to each job for which you're qualified by clicking on the apply button above or below the job posting ad (on-line help wanted ad).
I applied for a job on CollegeRecruiter.com but was then told that I was registered. I didn't want to register because I only want my resume to go to certain employers.
We were the first major job board to stop selling resume bank access in order to protect the privacy and security of the candidates using our site. You may wish to adjust your user settings to hide your profile, change what messages you receive, or even inactivate your profile if you wish, but keep in mind that we do not selling resume searching to employers or anyone else.
I tried to apply to a job but received an error message saying the job is no longer available.
Employers typically post jobs to run for 30 days on CollegeRecruiter.com. When those 30 days expire or if the employer inactivates the posting earlier then you'll be unable to apply to that job opening. Go back to the search results and look for other jobs which are similar or perhaps even better and apply to them.
I'm an employer and want to advertise our job openings on CollegeRecruiter.com. Is there a fee?
Yes, there's a fee to post job openings to our premium job board, run banner ads, or have us deliver on your behalf a targeted email or cell phone text message to our 100 percent, opt-in database. We offer a number of tools for employers with small, medium, or large hiring needs on our Employer Advertising Options page.
How do I contribute blogs, articles, videos, or other content to CollegeRecruiter.com?
Email your article to our staff writer, William Frierson, at William@CollegeRecruiter.com. Be sure that the body of the blog, article, video, or other content is not primarily a pitch for your product, service, or organization but feel free to include a pitch with a link in the one to three sentence byline at the end of your content. A great way of getting your blogs and articles on CollegeRecruiter.com and other recruiting-related sites is to post them for free to RecruitingBlogswap.com, a service of CollegeRecruiter.com. You essentially get a two-for-one as your article likely would run on the third-party blog as well as on CollegeRecruiter.com.
I found abusive content or a bug on CollegeRecruiter.com. How do I report it so that it can be removed?
