Your helpful "how to" guide

To post positions and review resumes, employers can use, Minnesota’s largest online no-fee job bank. You can opt to receive email notifications about new resumes that match your job postings and to “find more resumes like this.” And you can post volunteer, apprenticeship and internship opportunities. Here are a few steps to get started:

Create a employer account

  • If you don’t already have an employer account, use the “EMPLOYER REGISTRATION” button to enter your information
  • Review and accept the Terms of Use—all asterisked fields are required to complete the registration process
  • Provide your company’s Federal Identification Number and/or State Unemployment Tax Number
  • Within 24 hours, a Help Desk staff member will contact you by phone to verify your information—your response is needed before your account can be approved (if you apply on a weekend, you’ll be contacted the next business day)

Create job orders

  • Log in, select “Post a Job Order” and complete all required sections
  • Job descriptions can be up to 8,000 characters, with an additional 4,000 characters each for required skills and preferred skills
  • Select “Post on Internet” to make the job viewable to job seekers
  • Jobs that are not made viewable are in pending status for 90 days
  • Employers may search resumes when jobs are in pending status

Manage job orders

  • Log in and select “Manage Job Orders”
  • Select “Which Type of Job” and “Submit”
  • Select a job to view, copy, edit, delete/close/suspend or open

Search for resumes

  • Log in and select “Search for Resumes”
  • Resume searches may be done by job order, geographic location or keywords
  • When searching with a job order, the list of resumes represents the best matches and ranks them using a unique five-star rating system
  • Select “Find More Like This” when you find a resume that best matches your job order

Use keyword searches

  • Use specific and unique terms for best results
  • Connect terms with “and” or enclose in quotation marks when you wish to use all the terms
  • Separate terms with “or” when you wish to use one term or another
  • Place an asterisk at the beginning, middle and/or end of a word to search for variations on the word. For example, *cook might pull up “line cook” and “prep cook,” while *design* might pull up “interior design” and “interior designer”

Save searches

  • Select “Save Search” after you have searched for resumes. Name your search for future use
  • Log in to run your “Saved Searches” at a future date
  • Set your email notifications to “On” to receive emails as new resumes are posted that meet your job requirements
