How do I apply to a job?

When you’re viewing a job, click on the apply button. Depending on the employer’s settings, this will either open up an apply box with a few questions or a new webpage. Note that you will have to have a completed DreamHire profile in order to apply.

If it’s the apply box, then just answer the questions and click “Submit Application”. You don’t need to do anything else; your resume and information has already been included in the application. If you’re not quite ready to submit yet, you can also save your application as a draft and submit it later.

If it’s a new webpage that opens, then you’ll have to apply through the system that the employer has set up. DreamHire has no control over that system, so you’ll most likely need to re-enter your personal information. Top

Do you share my name and email with employers?

DreamHire is extremely privacy-conscious when it comes to protecting the privacy of our job seekers. We never share your name or contact information with employers without your explicit consent.

When you apply to a job on DreamHire, we share your name but not your contact info with the employer. If the employer likes your application and wishes to reach you, the will click a button called "Request Contact Info". Then, we will notify you by email that this particular employer is interested in you. You'll have the ability to Accept or Deny the contact info request. If you accept it, then your contact info will be passed to the employer. If you deny it, then your contact info will NOT be sent over, and the corresponding application will be withdrawn.

We also have a feature for premium and enterprise accounts to search through profiles and reach out to job seekers who they think are a good fit. This search is only able to search based on qualifications, and not by name. In addition, the results of the search only include your name and profile, but not your contact information. Employers can only request that you apply to a job opening, and they are unable to contact you directly.

Our goal is to make you confident that when you make an account on DreamHire, you are in total control of who you share your contact information with. Top
