Why do you use a Profile instead of a Resume

   
 
You can post your resume in your GPS Profile, but the Profile goes much further than a resume ever could. A resume was fince, in the old days. However, new technology dictates that information is put into an orderly standard format so that searches, filters, and matches can be run against the data. This is virtually impossible using the free form format of resume.
   
       

Does posting my Profile on GPS exclude me from working with another recruiting firm or posting to other Internet job sites?

   
 

No, there is no conflict at all

   
       

Who will see my resume ?

   
 

Your resume will be sent to every recruiter, headhunter and direct hiring corporation that has requested to receive resumes from people that meet your exact profile. We do allow direct hiring companies to use this service but you will be able to deselect any company that you do not want to receive your resume (i.e Your current employer)

   
       

Do people really respond to the listings? (Employers)

   
 

Yes, almost every group that has posted a listing has reported many responses from applicants who found their listing on this site. In fact, a few have asked to remove their listing early because they have so many applicants from this site

   
       

How often are your jobs updated on your website?

   
 

The jobs are updated daily. As soon as our member sends a job order to our database it is automatically posted to our website and the date posted is viewable to job seekers. When you search the jobs database the results are displayed in descending date order with the most current jobs at the top of the result page.

   
       

Do you guarantee the authencity of employee/job seeker of your site?

   
 

Yes, we do.

We have employ administrative staff, computer scientists, financial officers, human resources officers, and other managers and professionals.

   
       

What safeguards exist to protect my privacy and the confidentiality of information ?

   
 
Although no site is 100% safe, we let you select your own private login id and password. Only registered companies who search criteria match yours will be able to view the profile information you created. We put you in total control of the information release process. Your name, address, and email address are not displayed in the search functions of our site. Firms will make a decision whether or not to contact you based upon the other profile information that you submit. You will be notified if a firm has interest in you. At that time you will have the option to release your full profile. This method is much more confidential than using a traditional online resume, which usually contains enough information to identify you (i.e current and previous employers, schools attended). The situation that we are trying to avoid is to have your current manager see your resume on the Internet and to know that you are looking for a new opportunity. We allow for a resume to be included in the profile, but only if you choose to do so. This resume will not be displayed unless you decide to release your whole profile to a firm or apply directly to GPS.
   
       

How do I communicate with Confidential Candidates? (Employer)

   
 

Easily. When a confidential candidate applies for a job, you are notified immediately by email and the person's resume is linked to the appropriate job in your Account Manager area where you can also communicate with the person via a confidential messaging system. A corresponding entry is made in the respective candidate's Career Manager under Career Contacts. Non-confidential applicant resumes are sent directly to you via email.

   
       

Will my current employer be able to see my resume ? Can I keep my resume confidential ?

   
 

If your current employer is registered to the site, there is no way to block your resume. However, employers only have access to those candidates whose profiles match their current job postings. You can perform a confidential job search by utilizing the recuiter's directory to find a recruiter who specializes in placing candidates with your specific background.
