Jobseeker FAQ

Because of the high turnover rate in jobs openings, some of our employers choose to list their job openings with Energy Jobs List year-round in order to build a talent pool of potential candidates. These employers are constantly hiring new workers – however, they may not be hiring in your area at the exact moment you are looking for a job.

What does this mean to you? If you apply to a job and then the employer tells you they are not interviewing now, be patient. The employer has your application filed away and may contact you when positions open back up. In the meantime, please check Energy Jobs List regularly, because we add new jobs every day. Also you can create Jobs-by-Email Alert and receive new jobs openings matching your criteria directly to your inbox.

If you require personal feedback on any of your applications, you need to contact the recruitment agency or employer who advertised the vacancy on Energy Jobs List.

Some recruiters publish contact details on the vacancies they advertise which you can view by simply:

1. Logging onto your Jobseeker Dashboard
2. Select the "My Saved/Applied Jobs" tab, located towards the top of the page to view a full list of the applications you have made.
3. Clicking on the name of the Recruiter that is listed under the vacancy reference that you have applied for, will display any details that the Recruiter has provided us with. This will enable you to make direct contact with them, if they have chosen to make the contact details available.

Unfortunately, we do not hold any details of what is happening to your application so it is only the recruiters that will be able to help you here.

Energy Jobs List is not a direct employer nor recruitment agency in the traditional sense, so we do not accept CVs or job applications by post or email. The web site is set up for you to carry out searches, and allow recruiters to match you to their positions (via your Jobseeker Dashboard). When you complete an application online, you are contacting the recruiter directly, in a format that they can accept and process easily.

If you want feedback on how your application is progressing, you should contact the recruiter directly. You can contact Recruiter directly by using our Private Messaging system. Simply login to your Jobseeker Dashboard and choose Private Messaging.

We cannot give you an exact answer because Energy Industry Jobs is not involved in employers' hiring decisions. There are many possible reasons for your application being rejected:

  • There's a lot of competition for jobs right now.
  • Your skills and work experience may not have been exactly what the employer was looking for.
  • Are there blanks in your online profile? Employers like to have as much information about you as possible.

Do not get discouraged! Our most successful job seekers apply to 10 or more jobs. So get out there and apply, apply, apply. Check out Career Advice section for insider tips that will help you find a job.

If you are looking for further details about a vacancy you will need to speak to the recruiter who advertised that particular job.

Some recruiters publish their contact details alongside or within the advertisement which you can view by:

1. Visiting the vacancy page and clicking on the job title of the vacancy you require more information on.

2. If available, the contact details will either be presented on the left hand side of the page under the Recruiter Info section, within the Job Description itself or at the bottom of the page where it tells you how to apply.

Energy Jobs List so not have any more details than those already displayed but the recruiter should be able to help.

Using Energy Jobs List website is free for Jobseekers. We believe that you should never pay to apply for a job so our Jobseeker service is completely free.

Creating a really effective CV can be very challenging, so it's advisable to use a checklist to ensure it is right. Your CV is your 'marketing brochure', which gives you just a couple of pages to convey your value to an employer including your personality, skills and experience. But you may be competing with many others going for the same job. So how do you stand out? Here are our Top 5 tips for a perfect CV

1. Less is more: It's the biggest mistake to write too much. The average recruiter spends less than 45 seconds scanning a CV. Some will even take a less than 10-second glance to decide whether to look further and if it looks badly presented or not aesthetically inviting to read, it will probably be discarded almost immediately. Don't make it too long by going too far back into your employment history in great detail. Employers are suspicious of 'butterflies', i.e. those who change their jobs too often. If you do have a long list of jobs, then summarise or group some of these to keep your CV to a nice and crisp two pages. Make your personal statement as compelling as possible so you sound like someone they would want to employ as being good for them and not necessarily good for you!

2. Avoid fancy formatting and over-creativity: What looks nice on your computer screen may not look good in printed or other formats so keep the formatting to a minimum. Recruitment Agencies and Consultants often use their own templates, so make sure your CV is easy to copy and paste, such as in a simple MS 'Word doc'.

3. Mind the gaps: Your CV should read as a continuous flow of activities with explanations for any gaps such as travelling, long-term illness, maternity leave, sabbaticals, etc.

4. Bespoke it: This is one of the best-kept recruitment secrets! Job roles can be very different so bespoke (tailor) your CV to suit the role. Look at the job description and write your CV to suit the role. Speak the language your potential employer speaks but stick to the truth. You can send different CVs to suit different employers in a targeted fashion but don't make bespoke CVs too obvious. It can also greatly help your cause if you can add the credibility of a third-party report on you to accompany your CV. After all, your CV is a self-serving marketing document which you have produced yourself. Employers will treat much of what you say in it with a slight pinch of salt. It is thus very powerful to utilise a third-party report to add credibility to what you say, such as job-matching, psychometric analysis and personality profiling.

5. Grammar and spelling: It is almost a job-seeking 'sin' to have typos, spelling or grammatical mistakes in your CV. Nothing will annoy hiring managers or employers more and demonstrate more clearly that you do not pay attention to detail. ALWAYS ask someone else who is reliable to proof-read and check your CV for mistakes. The best of us will often not spot our own mistakes and it is why professional writers have their work proof-read. Your CV is effectively your marketing brochure so make sure it does not market you badly and achieve the opposite of what you intended!

To change or edit your details you will then need to login to your account:

  • Login into your Jobseeker Dashboard
  • Select "Add / Edit Resume"
  • Choose either to past your CV in the editor provided or to upload your CV as a ready document
  • If you choose to past your CV simply copy and paste your CV into editor provide and select Save button
  • If you choose to upload your CV document, locate the "Choose files" button - you will be prompted to search your PC or Disk for your CV
  • Once selected, click the "Save" to store your CV. It will now be checked by our system for any viruses.

The formatting may get changed by the upload process or the CV rejected completely if it has complicated formatting in it. To ensure the layout of your CV is compatible with our system, please follow the guidelines below:

1. Keep the layout of your CV as simple as possible.
2. Avoid 'unnecessary' decorations.
3. Avoid the use of Text Boxes: these do not convert well into simple text or html formats, sometimes becoming blank.
4. Avoid the use of graphics. Again these will not appear in simple text or html versions of your CV. They also make the MSWord documents very large.
5. Avoid using multiple tabs to arrange text, instead use a single tab with the correct tab setting. In the text version the tabs may convert to varying numbers of spaces. In html format the multiple tabs may force the text to wrap unpredictably over multiple lines.
6. Avoid using tables.
7. Avoid using multi-column page layouts.
8. Avoid multi-sectioned documents.
9. Don't password protect your CV.
10. Don't embed other documents.
