Some of your Questions:
Have questions about Pursuited? You've come to the right place.
Q. How does Pursuited work?
Pursuited is the first employment service built to put the candidate first. We enable employees (candidates) to nominate their next step in their career - what they want their next job to be. A candidate sets their desired job role, location, company size, skill set and salary. They also complete a 'job fit' analysis to determine what kind of work environment they would most thrive in.
Candidates can then nominate which specific companies they can stay hidden from. Finally, candidates can relax easy that their profiles are 'private' - candidates cannot be searched by name, and their profiles are only visible to verified employers. As such, candidates are best served by setting realistic profiles that will make them most happy in their next move.
Employers will use our service to find suitable candidates to their open roles. Employers must be verified against their ABN before searching our private profiles; once verified, an employer searches Pursuited candidates for their open role(s) against the rich data offered by the platform.
An employer creates a shortlist of candidates that they wish to talk to. A Pursuited account manager then discusses the opening with the desired candidates and proceeds to set up interviews with the candidates wishing to move forward in the process.
Q. Do I have to complete my profile?
Pursuited only works with rich candidate profiles. By candidates providing detailed backgrounds, target roles and profile videos, candidates can be sure that employers wishing to interview them are going to meet their desired criteria for employment.
Q. Can anyone search for me by my name?
No. Candidates can only be found by being the closest matches to a verified employer's search criteria.
If you choose to make applications through other formats, potential employers will find it very difficult to find you to cross check your desirable data (unless they are an outstanding match for you already!)
Q. How can I be sure the employer is who they say they are?
Employers must be verified. Pursuited does this through confirming a businesses ABN against other online data, and ensuring the applying employees of the business are actually part of the business through phone calls or email.
Q. How do I know what I should set my 'target role' to?
Your target role is your desired role, the role you wish to be headhunted to.
You set the role and its' employment criteria as you wish - essentially 'what is your price to move?'.
Pursuited will provide you feedback on your target role against your peers through the candidate dashboard. You will see how you stand against other candidates desiring a similar target role as you in regards to your desired salary, skill set, education and experience. This information will change over time, so we strongly recommend you revisit your dashboard frequently.
How you modify your target role criteria after receiving that information is entirely up to you.
Q. Do I have to record a video?
Yes, you must record a video. The video is a benefit in a few key ways:
You (the candidate) have the opportunity to 'keep making your first impression' until you are happy with it;
You receive much of the benefit of a first interview by being in this video (an employer who wishes to interview you has already 'seen' you and liked what they saw)
You'll find the typical interview process is shorter when being headhunted through Pursuited as the employer has a much clearer idea of who you are prior to interviews.
Q. How is the service free for candidates?
Candidates will never pay to be headhunted on Pursuited. Employers pay a service fee when they choose to hire a candidate found through our service.
Q. Will I need to make applications for jobs?
No. Pursuited candidates do not make applications for open jobs; they set their criteria for jobs they wish to be contacted by.
Candidates are under no obligation to meet with employers once they have been headhunted using our service. Pursuited will be the company in contact with the candidate (as an intermediary) to discuss the job role, background of the company and give advice and preparation for the role if interested.
Q. What do I do once I complete my profile and 'go live'?
Once a candidate goes live, there is nothing more that needs to be done. We strongly suggest visiting the dashboard periodically to ensure your target role criteria is set correctly against your peers and maximising your opportunities to be headhunted.
