Here are some tips to help you create an awesome profile!
Visit ReRouting’s “Submit Profile” page to create your profile using our online form.
Use all the fields available. It shows you care and took the time to create your profile. Also, you have a better chance of being found by recruiters running searches for candidates when you do it properly.
You can always go back and maintain your profile via the “Candidate Dashboard”. You can also create multiple profiles if you are open to different opportunities and plan to target your resume towards the various positions that may be of interest… just ensure you use the correct profile when applying for positions!
Completing Your Profile
Some information on the form is straightforward, for what is not, we have provided tips below.
REGION – Recruiters from all over could be searching for you. Indicate the region in which you would be willing to work in. For example, if you are a Canadian looking to teach in South Korea, select “South Korea” for the given resume. Since you can create multiple profiles, and tailor them to your job interests, select what region that specific profile is meant for.
PROFESSIONAL TITLE – You may not have a professional title yet, but use this section to illustrate what job you are looking for. Or, use something like “Finance Student/ Graduate”, it is perfectly acceptable at this stage!
LOCATION – Enter your current location of residence. Include your city and province for example “Toronto, Ontario”.
PHOTO – Using a photo makes your resume more personal. A professional photoshoot is not required, but ensure it is a tasteful picture and that you are appropriately dressed.
VIDEO – Use this section to further dazzle recruiters by linking to a video resume or brief introduction to you and your ambitions. You must link directly to your video on YouTube or Vimeo for this to work. You can preview your profile to ensure the link works. Need help? Feel free to reach out and ask for it.
RESUME CONTENT – Use this section to provide additional information about yourself. This can include a summary of who you are, your employment and career goals, education and course focus, links to publications, or additional qualifications. DO NOT INCLUDE YOUR EDUCATION AND EXPERIENCE HERE. We will ask for it later!
SKILLS – Enter a minimum of your 3 top skills. This is what the system pulls from when recruiters search by skill. If information is missing it will be harder for them to find you!
URLs – Use this section to add a portfolio, include websites that you have designed, links to your research/publications, etc. Anything relevant!
EDUCATION – This should be straightforward. Be sure to include your main area of study (course focus or relevant course list) in the “notes”.
EXPERIENCE – Again, straightforward. But be sure that your experience is listed in chronological order (your most recent experience first). If you need to rearrange it, no need to retype it. Just drag and drop the boxes in the correct order. Summarize your responsibilities and position achievements in the “notes”.
UPLOAD YOUR RESUME – This is where you can add your resume document. PDF always looks better, so please convert your Word doc before uploading it!
Search For Jobs and Apply Directly Using Your Profile
There are various ways you can search for jobs:
- Search the job type that you are looking for. By selecting one type at a time, you will yield better results. Ex >Apprenticeship, Articling, Co-op, Full Time, Part Time, International/ Work Abroad, Internship, Summer Student Job, or Volunteer Opportunity.
- Enter keywords to match key terms associated with jobs.
- Use the map to zoom in on specific locations of interest (or enter a location in the search bar).
- Search by category (specific categories will only appear if there is an active job post that supports a given category).
Set Up Job Alerts
Don’t see a job that you are currently interested in? Then be sure to set up alerts on your “My Job Alerts” page. Alerts can be specified for regions, job categories, and job types. For additional match-making technology you can also indicate keywords that ReRouting will scan job posts for. Get notified daily, weekly, or biweekly…your choice!
