Why am I required to respond to interview requests within 72 hours?
To shorten your job hunt drastically and make the hiring process simpler, we ask you to respond within 72 hours. Employers apply to you and provide accurate salary information up-front.
In return, approved candidates are also expected to move with expediency. Therefore, candidates are required to either accept or decline the company's interview request within 72 hours.
If you anticipate travelling or otherwise being in a position where you are unable to respond to interview requests within 72 hours, you can ask us to defer your candidacy to the next batch.
Can my current employer see my profile?
Your current employer is automatically blocked from viewing your profile. You can further edit the list of blocked companies to include any related companies, past employers and so on.
How can I improve my profile?
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.
