Career Tips

Using iCareers

You are all hopefully familiar with HuskyJobs, and have certainly heard of iCareers, but it’s time for a little refresher course on things about iCareers that you may not know! This is a currently underutilized resource, and employers are scrambling to connect with you through this portal. Here are some tips that can help you be considered for great jobs in this system.

1. Check it often. You’ll get a job blast email once a week, and we highlight jobs and internships in this newsletter each week, but sometimes jobs are posted with short timelines, or the job gets highlighted for you just before it expires, so you’ll want to check iCareers for postings periodically. You can also set up an automated search to notify you when jobs get posted that meet your criteria.

2. Upload your resume. This will allow you to apply to positions relatively quickly if there’s a tight turnaround, or to share your resume with employers via resume books. They don’t know what your skills are if you don’t have a resume to share!

3. Your competition isn’t as big as you’d think. Most jobs in iCareers get 6 or fewer applications through the system. So, apply! Your chances are almost always excellent on these specific roles where employers are especially interested in iSchool students. And, because these posts are seen by a smaller subset of the UW population than the jobs in HuskyJobs are, you have an even better chance of being selected.

 

So spend some time in iCareers!
