4. Save changes to make them active.

Special resume fields

There are several important and resume-specific fields available by default in resume settings. These include the following:

  • Searchable for employers: ticked by default. Job seekers can untick the checkbox to remove their resume from search results for all employers. Ticking the checkbox again at a later date will get the resume back on the search results; this option can be used if a job seeker is not looking for a job at the moment and doesn’t want to be contacted with job offers;
  • Exclude employers: hide job seeker’s resume from specific employers. Job seekers can perform a search in this field for a specific company they want to hide their resume from. If such company exists in your job board database – system will allow them to select it & hide the resume.
  • Anonymous: if ticked, system hides specific fields on the job seeker’s resume from employers. Default hidden fields include personal info (name, phone, email) and file uploads (resume file, cover letter, photo). Job board admin can easily configure the fields to hide/unhide.
