Frequently Asked Questions

Here is a list of questions I often receive:

General: Job Hunters: Employers / Recruiters:

Q: What is
A: is a free employment information exchange job board actually modeled from My name is Chris McGarry and I designed it because I was looking for a network administrator and it was frustrating to not see an intuitive and nicely organized free job board. The response has obviously been overwhelming and my "small project" has blossomed into a very popular job board that, in many ways, rivals the big boys (i.e. Monster, HotJobs, etc.).

Q: What is your pricing information? How much does it cost?
A: is FREE to employers and jobseekers. There is no charge to post a resume, post job(s), search through the resumes, search through the jobs, or create a job alert.

Q: How can be free?
A: is FREE to employers and jobseekers because I generate revenue through advertising on the site. The only fee that I will charge is to bulk import jobs for employers.

Q: How do I post a job or resume?
A: Easy! First select the action from the links on the left then login (if you have not yet registered you will need to do so now which is free) and the screens should be fairly self explanatory after you have logged in. Please let me know if you are having any problems.

Q: Where do you get your resumes?
A: All of the resumes for are entered directly by jobseekers visiting this site. Other career sites simply import and copy around the same old resumes from other web sites.

Q: I lost my login and/or password how can I get it back?
A: You can have this information emailed to you here.

Q: I love, how can I support it?
A: There are actually two things you can do: 1) Continue using and 2) If you have a website, please link to Here is some easy "copy and paste" code:

Q: Can I batch or bulk import jobs into your database without manually entering each job?
A: Yes, we can accept batch/bulk job via a few different methods (i.e. ftp, upload, email, etc.). However, I do charge a fee for this service depending on the number of jobs and frequency of your batch import. Please click here for more information.

Q: I'm concerned about the legitimacy of a job. What can I do?
A: These scammers are pretty tricky and even if you are not concerned I strenuously recommend reading my "scam awareness" page. Being educated and aware will lessen your chances to falling victim to these scammers.

Q: I have posted a resume (or job) on and someone has responded to my posting with spam or junk email. Can't do something about this?
A: The truth is I do already. I eliminate about 98% of the spam that gets sent through the system and I'm working to even improve that but I am fighting a constant battle. Occasionally you may receive spam and I recommend just ignoring it.

Q: What are the minimum system requirements for using
A: For best results, I recommend using Microsoft Internet Explorer version 5.5+, or Netscape 6.02+. However, the minimum Internet browser requirement is Microsoft Internet Explorer 5.01 or Netscape Navigator 4.75. Any user ADDING, MODIFYING, or DELETING a job, resume, or job alert must have cookies enabled (used only to temporarily store session information). Also, browsers must support Javascript and it must be set "ON". In addition, these Web pages are optimized for and best viewed with resolution of 1024x768, though any resolution will work.

Q: Will you post my resume (or job) if I send it to you?
A: I ask that you post your own resume (or job) with one exception: If you would like to batch import multiple jobs into the database (instead of hand posting each job) I have an assortment of different services I can provide for a fee. Please inquire for more information.

Q: I currently use an ATS (Applicant Tracking System) can I post to through it?
A: Sure, we work with many different employment software systems. If you don't know if your current ATS provider integrates with us, just ask them. If it's not integrated your provider will likely contact us to get added to the list of sites you can post to.

Q: Will the jobs I post be indexed by the big job aggregators like
A: Yes, jobs posted on are indexed by SimplyHired, JuJu and all of the major search engines!

Q: How do I modify or delete my job or resume?
A: Click on the link on the upper left that says "My Spider". Once you login you will see the listing(s) you have posted and can select the action you would like to perform to the right of that listing. "My Spider" is your control panel of your account.
