FAQ for candidates
Nope! Simply apply for the job you want. But you can increase your chance of career success by registering on our site and applying with an online resume. Registered members can also receive job alerts.
It sure is! Just click on Register at the top of the page.
When applying for a job, you can simply attach your existing resume (e.g. as a pdf or Word document). However, you can also create an online resume on our site. Employers can view it and contact you, even when you’re not actively applying. This increases your chance of career success. Simply register or login to The Helpful Panda and go to Resumes > Add Resume. It only takes a minute!
You’ll receive confirmation from us if you’ve applied directly on our site. However, some jobs require you to apply on the employer’s site, in which case you won’t receive confirmation from us.
Even though we encourage employers to quickly get back to all candidates (even if they’re unsuccessful), each employer is different. They may only contact candidates who they wish to speak with further.
Try waiting a few minutes (it may not be sent instantly) and check your spam/junk mail. If that fails, please contact us with your first name, last name and email address.
