It’s easy to submit your résumé and cover letter to us online. First, we need you to prepare a résumé describing your recent work activities in a format of your choice, or one similar to the chronological sample résumé shown here. This will help us to better determine the kind of company for which you are best suited. If we have an appropriate opportunity for you, we will contact you directly. Otherwise, we will electronically file your résumé for future opportunities.

You may produce your résumé using any word processing program. Be certain to save the version you plan to attach to your e-mail in Microsoft Word (.DOC) or plain text (.TXT) format. You will find these format selections under the FILE – SAVE AS menu of your word processor. This choice of format will help to preserve the style and characteristics of your résumé as it passes through the Internet. Name your résumé file in the style of (FirstInitialYourLastName)Res, eg: JSmithRes. This will help us to identify it as yours when it arrives.

Write a short e-mail transmittal that describes the kind of work you most enjoy, your salary expectations, location restrictions, etc. In this cover letter, be sure to provide us with your logistics: address, postal / zip code and a telephone number, preferred contact time, etc. This will assist us in contacting you. Be sure to let us know which companies you want us to target and which ones to avoid.

When you are ready, click here to send us an email. Attach your résumé using the “paperclip” icon or “attach document” command and cut and paste your transmittal note into the text body. If we see a close fit between your skill set and one of the positions we are working on, one of our recruiters will attempt to reach you to discuss your submission.

If you should experience problems…

You may be using an older version of Netscape or Explorer that doesn’t support integrated e-mail transmissions. If the above link fails to work, simply copy down our e-mail address exactly as shown: positions@peoplefindinc.com and enter it manually into your regular e-mail program address header, then proceed as instructed above.

Alternatively, should you feel more comfortable using conventional techniques, you can fax your résumé and cover letter or mail it to our offices.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS (FAQ’S)

You may have some questions or concerns about submitting your name and résumé into the marketplace. Here is a compilation of some Frequently Asked Questions that will hopefully address your concerns. Should you have any questions or comments that are not covered here, please feel free to contact us at your convenience.

Q: If I send my résumé to PeopleFind, can I still find a job on my own or use the services of another recruitment firm?
A: There are no restrictions placed upon you by using PeopleFind. In fact, we are an ally in your job search process. We simply request that you give us an opportunity to find the best possible match that satisfies your needs while meeting the requirements of our client companies. You can pursue an opportunity you have located on your own, or work with another recruiter at the same time.

Q: I need to ensure that my current employer doesn’t find out that I am looking for a new position. What assurances do I have that this won’t happen?
A: Your résumé is held in the strictest confidence and will only be submitted to a prospective employer upon your approval.

Q: How long will you keep my name on file and actively pursue an opportunity on my behalf?
A: Your name and résumé remain in our electronic database in accordance with the recently implemented Canadian privacy legislation.

Q: If I receive a job offer through PeopleFind, how much time do I have to make up my mind?
A: If you are made an offer, the employer will expect you to respond within a reasonable period of time. It is certainly acceptable for you to refuse an offer, but we need to know the reasons why so that we can better target your requirements the next time, as well as meet our client’s needs for the position.

Q: What services will PeopleFind offer me after I have accepted an offer and started my new job?
A: PeopleFind will gladly answer any questions relevant to your being hired up to and including your start date. Should you have any questions concerning your position during your probationary period, we ask that you recognize that your employment relationship is with your new employer, and questions and issues need to be brought to your employer’s attention. We are available, however, to provide counsel should it be required.
