First, log into your e-JAM Jobseekers’ profile and click the “Jobs” tab in the tool bar, on the left-hand side of the screen.
By clicking this, you will be redirected to the list of jobs e-JAM has available for you.
Click on a Job Title that you are interested in and qualified for from the list of options available to you. The job you apply for must reflect the skills and experience outlined in your resume.
When you narrow down your desired job, take the time to thoroughly read the Job Description and the Job Details so you can determine whether it's a good fit for you.
After reading the Job Description and the Job Details, you decide, based upon your professional history and qualifications, to apply - scroll down and click the “Apply For This Job” button
A pop up window will appear, prompting you to answer a few questions; answer them to the best of your ability. Your answers should be applicable to the job you are applying for and highlighting the skills specific for the position according to the Job Description and the Job Details.
If you are applying for more than one job or have experience in more than one area of industry, it is best to create individual resumes for each of your professional histories. Doing this helps to better organize your professional experience in different industries, instead of putting them all in one resume. Therefore, we recommend labeling and saving each resume with a title that illustrates its contents when you upload them into your e-JAM Jobseekers’ profile under the "Resume" tab.
If you have resumes already saved into your e-JAM Jobseeker profile, this pop-up window will give you the option to select one of them from the drop down menu, “Select your resume”; rather than, uploading the files by clicking “Browse...” beneath the prompt “Upload your resume”.
Then, you are asked to provide three brief examples from your resume; this is your chance to show the hiring manager you are a match for the position you are applying for. Make sure you highlight key skills and experiences listed in your resume that are relevant to the job description. This is the first thing employers see when you apply for a job, so make sure it is professionally done and demonstrates why you are more qualified for the position compared to your competition.
Cover letters are not required, but if done correctly, it helps to give an employer a more complete first impression of who you are and why hiring you for the position in question will be an asset to their company.
If you are applying for more than one job, have experience in more than one area of industry, or for any other reason, it is best to create individual cover letters for each of the job applications you will be completing. Therefore, we recommend labeling and saving each cover letter with a title that illustrates its contents when you upload them into your e-JAM Jobseekers’ profile under the "Cover Letters" tab.
If you have cover letters already saved into your e-JAM Jobseeker profile, this pop-up window will give you the option to select one of them from the drop down menu, “Select your cover letter”.
Upon registration, especially if you are applying for an overseas position, it is important you upload all your documents, such as: any certifications, references, and a copy of your passport, and/or government ID card into your e-JAM Jobseeker profile ahead of time. We recommend labeling and saving each document with a title that illustrates its contents when you upload them into your e-JAM Jobseekers’ profile under the "Documents" tab.
If not, you will have to upload these documents every time you fill out an application. Therefore, uploading these documents ahead of time will help your e-JAM hiring experts expedite your application.
If you have uploaded your documents into your e-JAM Jobseeker profile, as mentioned before, you will be able to select them from the drop-down menu provided beneath the section titled "Select your document:"
Finally, you will complete the Captcha at the bottom of the application and then click the “Apply” button.
This will immediately redirect you to the “Applied Jobs” tab back into your e-JAM Jobseeker profile, illustrating to you all of the jobs you have applied to up until this point.
If you check the email you used to create your e-JAM Jobseeker profile with, you will have received an email detailing your next steps in terms of your application.
