Tips for Using Snag to Job Search

Create a profile. It is very easy to join Snag and create a profile. All you need to do is fill out a one-page questionnaire. Once you complete your profile and are registered, you’ll be able to apply for jobs easily, using information from your profile.

By creating a profile, employers will also be able to find you, and you’ll be able to sign up for notifications for appropriate jobs as they are posted in your area. You’ll be able to save jobs and job searches so that you can go back to them later. You'll also have access to career training and education opportunities and tips and videos from Snag's job search experts.

Narrow down your job search. Users can search job listings on Snag by keyword and location. They can then narrow down their job search by distance, industry, and company. You can also search by category, which includes job types such as shift work, bilingual jobs, full-time or part-time jobs, seasonal work, veteran jobs, teen job opportunities, and more. Student users can also search for positions near their colleges.

Apply with one click. If you create a profile, you can apply for jobs with one easy click, using the “1-Click Apply” button. Snag will send your profile to the employer instead of an application. You'll have a chance to review your profile before it's sent to the employer. This button saves you lots of time.

Set up job alerts. If you are a member, you can set up job alerts to have new job postings in your zip code emailed to you as soon as they are listed.

Use Snag’s other resources. There are many resources available to job seekers on the Snag website besides just job postings – and all of them are free. You’ll find articles about trends in hiring, career paths, and how to maintain a work/life balance.

There are also sections which offer tips on preparing your application and resume, interviewing, and networking. You’ll also find useful articles about employment news and success stories from other hourly workers. The site also has videos on similar topics.

Use their apps. Snag has apps available for both iOS and Android. You'll be able to search for jobs on your mobile device and use the "1-Click Apply" button to send in your application to employers.
