How Big.Jobs is different from job boards?

Big.Jobs is not a job-board, it is a reverse-recruitment marketplace which means companies reach out to you instead of the other way around.

Our clients are hiring companies with open job positions looking for qualified & interested candidates. We invite & showcase the candidates that fit the job requirements to our hiring companies. Hiring managers shortlist the candidates they like and invite them for their interview process.

Our primary goal is to find you a job that you'll love. This means that we take into account your career aspirations, goals, preferences for salary, benefits & culture before matching you to prospective employers. You also get a Talent Partner who assists you every step of the way through your hiring process. Additionally, we value your privacy - your profile always stays hidden from your current & past employers.

You can learn more about how it all works here.

Why didn't I receive an interview invite after getting accepted on Big.Jobs?

Generally Big.Jobs offers a job match immediately. Then it depends on the hiring company's discretion to invite you for interviews & extend a job offer. Unlike job boards, Big.Jobs works best for passive candidates who aren't actively making an effort to apply for jobs but are open to exploring if a highly relevant job opportunity comes their way.


How can I improve my chances of getting hired through Big.Jobs?

Your Big.Jobs profile is your key asset in our talent marketplace. To make the best out of Big.Jobs, make sure you complete your profile with all the relevant information in detail:

Expected minimum base salary: Put a realistic value to your expected minimum base compensation. Note that this is the base salary and the compensation packages can go much higher when taking the variable components and stock options into account. 

This information taken into account only to gauge your expectations to find a good match and is not shared with the employer so you can rest assured that you won't get lower offers because of it. 

A higher value will get you less interview offers from early-stage startups in particular.
We recommend this to be no more than 30% higher than the current base compensation. 

Profile Picture : Add a profile picture of you and get noticed more.

Location Preference : Mentioning your location preference draws more attention to your profile.

Skillset & Experience : Don’t forget to mention your years of experience and your top skills. 

Additional Links : We strongly recommend that you include links to your LinkedIn, Dribble, GitHub etc., and your portfolio if you are a Front-End Developer or a designer.
