Who should not sign up for EmploymentCrossing
Our goal is for users of EmploymentCrossing to be as successful as humanly possible. The single best way to do this is to disclose all information to you before you sign up. Please take a moment to see if our service is right for you.
Despite being a site that requires free registration to access, our network of job sites are among the most trafficked job sites in the world, have won numerous awards and we only want to do business with people who appreciate what we do and can benefit from it.
DO NOT SIGN UP FOR OUR SERVICE IF ANY OF THE FOLLOWING APPLY TO YOU:
If you feel signing up for a free membership is too much of a hassle. If you have any hesitation whatsoever about being required to register for a job opening research service like EmploymentCrossing, then EmploymentCrossing is not for you. Come back when you actually want to understand all of the openings in the market. We will still be here.
We do not need your membership.
If you are not sure about what you want to do with your career. If you are just dallying around applying to jobs that our members could be applying to -- please do our members a favor and use public job sites. We do not want you. We want to ensure our members have the best chance of finding jobs. We do not want our members competing with people who may interview well but have no intention of working hard and being committed to their jobs.
We do not need your membership. If you are not serious about your career, go somewhere else.
If you do not understand that we are a research company. We are a job-opening research company with more than 300 employees who research jobs and manually and electronically collect and classify them from more than 250,000 sources (newspapers, employer career pages, small niche publications, other job sites and more). We have more jobs from employers, for example, than any other source.
Public job sites get their jobs by (1) having salesmen sell job postings for hundreds of dollars a job, (2) only showing you jobs that employers pay to post and (3) making the jobs easy for job seekers to access so employers get the most applications possible - that's it. We are a "research company" and not a "job posting sales company"--this makes us different than every other job site we are aware of.
We do not need your membership. We suggest you use public sites that don't require registration if you want to compete with everyone else for a limited number of jobs that employers are paying to post.
You think that we walk on water and signing up for our site is all you need to do to have a good career. No good job is easy and perfect all the time. In order to be good at any job, you need to work extremely hard, be smart and be committed. If you have doubts, you should probably not use our site. See a career counselor and think about what you want to do.
We do not need your membership. Do not sign up if you are not serious about your career.
HERE ARE THE FACTS:
We don't want to trick, deceive, ambush or sucker you into signing up today or any day in the future. We do not need your membership. Our site is extremely successful. We have been on the Inc. 500 twice and are very good at what we do. If you have any doubts about EmploymentCrossing go somewhere else.
How long does the average person stay a member? We have found that people who have the best jobs and make the most money often stay members of our site for years. Why? We do not know. In conversations with our longstanding members, we have found they have most often cited the benefits of EmploymentCrossing educating them about job openings at all times (some career CEOs of companies have been members for more than a decade). The majority of our members are composed of people earning high incomes.
People with a lesser "investment" in their careers do not stay members for as long. Many administrative personnel, for example, join for a month or two and then cancel once they get a higher paying job, and then join again for a month or two when they are ready to move on again.
Quite often, people who join our site "move up" in terms of the prestige level of their jobs, stop being a member and then sign up a few years later to do the same thing again.
You can be a member of our site for as long or as short a time as you like. We do suggest, however, that you only join if you are serious about your career. Yes we would like your membership... but only if we are right for you.
If you have any questions about the information on this page please call us at (800) 973-1177. We have a lot of people who would be happy to talk to you about whatever you need.
