Using Genuinejobs.com Part 2 – Understanding the way vacant jobs are posted.

11 June 2009 12 Comments

So by now you must have had time to go through the website. Thoughts? Leave us a comment below. Today we’ll take a closer look at the actual job search and how to use the jobs database effectively so you can apply for the jobs you qualify for.

Note: All the new vacant jobs posted will always appear first when you access the job search page.

As you access the page where all the vacant jobs are posted, you’ll see a job title and a short description of that job. To view the actual posting, you must click on the link itself and you’ll be immediately redirected to the page with the full details of that particular vacant job. Using the image below as a guide…

A. Job title

B. Brief description of the job

C. Click on the job title to learn more about that job.

job-search

After you click on the link (A – above) the page with the actual job description will load for you. Note: To get back to the main job listings, you have 2 options. You can click on the “back” button on your browser or if you look closely at the top of the job posting there will be a “back to jobsearch” link for you to click on.

Some key features of the job description page:

job-posting

A. As in the previous image above, this is the title of the job. Be sure to include that when you apply for the job. Dear employer I’m applying for the “position title” …

B. This is the description area and will contain all the details about the vacant job. Please read this area carefully, since it will contain all the important specifics from the hiring employer.

C. Here’s where you’ll see how to go about contacting the employer. In most cases this will be an email address, but there are times when it will be a fax number or actual street address that you must mail your application to.

In some cases you’ll also see the employer’s name and the person you must make contact with. If that information is posted (contact person) we highly recommend that you address them by their name and not send it a “to Whom It May Concern” type application.

Good luck with your jobsearch and don’t hesitate to leave us your comments or questions.

    Would be easier if you posted the date for all the new jobs each time. Then I would avoid checking out jobs that I’ve already looked at from a couple of days ago, or just post new jobs each day and archive previous days jobs that you can choose to view if you want too.

  • Charles Morel said:

    My Bad, guess I haven’t looked at the site since you changed it from just a long list of jobs with no dates, etc., to one that much more organized. Sorry.

    I have been looking for an legitiment online job, no I don’t want to start my own business, I just want to work from home. I just can not see paying to work from home, especially if I have my own computer and phone. Help? Deb W.

  • Chris De La Rosa said:

    Thanks for taking the time to send in your comments..much appreciated. Deb, I also believe one should not have to pay for a job or the promise of a job. My only suggestion is to keep visiting here on a regular basis so you can get first crack at the newly posted vacant jobs.

    Have a great weekend all.

    Hi there!

    Just to let you know….when I click on the Title Link it shows a new page but it is blank. I tried many different titles and it still does the same….no job description but a blank. There could be a problem with my computer but I don’t think so as I am able to do my other searches…..hope you can help!

    Another thing I was wondering is….is it possible to maybe write after the Title if this is U.S. only, etc…this would save me and alot of other Canadians time. I realize you are busy already and I must say you have been the best there is out there…..much appreciated!

    Thanks for all you do to make our lives a little easier.

    I know some notifications will show a city or state. However, I have found many listings that don’t tell you that you have to live in a city or state to do the job until you have clicked on the link. In other cases, a city or state is listed but no mention is made in the ad. This can confusing. When you collect the listing do you electronic scan the ad for location required? It would help if I could trust what I see in regard to this. I would only look at my area or those without an area if the Location field were more accurate on the listing page.

  • Chris De La Rosa said:

    re: Lori. Can you tell me what operating system you’re using (mac, Xp, Vista) and the browser so we can test things from our end.

    re: Betty.

    Not sure if you missed this bit of text (on all jobs posted)

    Since these are all work from home, freelance, contract and telecommute jobs, you can be based anywhere and still apply. Providing you meet the employer’s requirements. However, there are times when the employer will ask for applicants from a specific location, this will be clearly stated in the job posting below.

    hey I am trying to send the application emails and some of the craigslist ones are coming back to me am I doing something wrong?

  • Linda said:

    Chris, I truly have enjoyed the upgrade to the site! I was almost at the point of pulling out all my hair due to frustration with the old site. Thanks for upgrading and making everything more concise.

    I only have one beef…and much to my surprise, found that someone else is experiencing the same thing. When responding to ads with a Craigslist contact, they usually come back to me as undeliverable. Are we supposed to go to the Craigslist for the city & state listed in the ad and look for that particular posting? If so, it would be most appreciated if there were detailed instructions for doing so, since I’ve never responded to or looked for a particular ad at Craigslist (other than simply e-mailing the contact listed in your ads), and am not sure about how to go about doing that.

    Keep up the great work, Chris. It’s appreciated!
    Linda
