How do I get a job opportunity through LookSee?

There are two ways to land the perfect job via LookSee – by Recommendation from our Talent Team or by getting published to employers in LookSee Groups.

Recommendations:

After completing your profile our dedicated LookSee Talent Team could recommend you to an employer. If your LookSee profile is identified as a possible match for a job opportunity, you will receive a Recommendation Request via email, with the job title and company name. From there, you’ll get the chance to either approve the request and share your profile with the employer, or you can decline the request and your profile will remain hidden.

If you approve the request, the employer will review your profile to see if you’re the right fit for the role. You’ll receive an update via email on the outcome, and if approved, the employer will be in touch regarding the next steps – you might be invited to have a Skype interview, telephone call or complete a skills test.

LookSee Groups:

Joining a LookSee Group gives you the best chance to find the job that’s right for you. A group may be industry specific, based on a select skill-set or an individual employer’s needs.

Once your profile is complete, express interest in any LookSee Groups that are relevant to you. Here you will move through a two-step review process, greatly increasing your chances of being matched to potential job opportunities.

Once reviewed, your profile will be published, making it visible to participating employers within the group.

From here, if our team or an employer think that you could be a good match for a role, you will receive an email to get the process started.

What information is required to complete a LookSee profile?

Once you’ve created your LookSee candidate account, you’ll need to complete your personal profile by providing all the required information. These include the following:

  • Personal information
  • Work history & education
  • Rank your skills
  • Upload CV/resume
  • Questionnaire

Your profile will only be activated and searchable by the LookSee Talent Team once all the required fields are complete. You may also be invited to submit a personal video introduction at a later stage.

How will I be contacted about job opportunities?

You will receive an email notification if your LookSee profile is identified as a possible match for job opportunities – either by our LookSee Talent Team, or by employers if you are published in a LookSee Group. Remember, the sooner you complete your details, the sooner your profile will be searchable.

How do I update my details?
