You need to register, as only registered users are able to create their own online resumes and apply for jobs.
9 . Why can’t I see the advertiser’s email directly in the job ad?
Everyone needs some element of privacy, even big businesses. Don’t worry, just because you can’t see it, doesn’t mean our wonderful form won’t work. Simply complete the application through our website and relax.

By email. We keep all the email addresses private, but we use them to pass on your application.
11 . Why can’t I send my resume out?
When you attach your resume to the application form, make sure it is smaller than 300kb. The best way to achieve this is to focus on a text resume like those made in word, with a small photo included in the file if you want to stand out.
12 . How can I judge whether an ad is a scam or not?
Use your brain as much as possible. Having said that, few scammers bother trying to write adverts for a fictional job. Just make sure to meet all companies at their office or at least in a public place
