Getting great job matches is what it’s all about and we’re here to make it easy for you.

So the first step is simply signing up…

…because the tailored information you provide at signup gives us what we need to turn the information age in your favor and bring high-end job matches to your inbox.

Therefore your next step is investing in yourself by stepping up to Premium membership and opening the doors to unlimited high-end opportunities.

OK — so you’re in, you’re here, and you’re ready to aim high and hit your target.

Which means your first step is tailoring your information so we can start targeting it for you.

Job Matches the Easy Way

  • Sign in and click or tap the icon with your name beside it.
    – It’s in the top right corner of your screen.
  • And from the dropdown box, choose My Account, then Job Preferences
    – You’ll see it on left under Settings.

So now you’ll decide what we target to your My Jobs page and directly to your inbox.

  • Choose the Edit button on the right of the What you do section.
  • And in Edit your job preferences, click the dropdown box on left and choose your career category.
  • Now check off the boxes that appear on right that you feel apply to your skills.
    – Careful: the more you choose, the more job types you’ll receive.
  • Choose Update Matches when satisfied you’ve tailored as specifically as you can, or as broadly as you wish.

With this, some serious targeting has been set up. So how long did it take?

  • Choose the Edit button on the right of the What you’re looking for section.
    – You’ll see it under What you do.
  • And in What kind of job are you looking for?, enter or change your job title.
  • Then choose your approximate current salary from the Recent Salary dropdown box.
  • Now choose your future approximate salary from the Desired Salary dropdown box.
    – Recruiters on Ladders will see this option, not your Recent Salary choice.
  • Enter your ZipCode under Location; and distance from your ZipCode under Radius.
  • And choose Save.

You could try timing yourself when you do this — we work hard to make it easy!

Now Get Job Matches and More to Your Inbox

  • Beneath Job Preferences, choose Emails.
  • Ensure that all the buttons on right of the Ladders Jobs section are green, not gray.
    – And if gray, simply click each button and it will change for you.

That’s it. You tailored — now we can start targeting for you.

So good job!

We’re rooting for you.
