What you need to know to complete your profile to apply for a job
Welcome to Shortlyster! You are here because the employer for the job you are applying for has chosen Shortlyster as their chosen technology partner to help them understand you better, in terms of your background and skills, but also what environment and roles you’d thrive in.
However, Shortlyster is as much for you as it is for the employer. We understand that applying for a job can be quite stressful so we are here to help you find the job that’s right for you.
Rather than completing the profile based on what you think the employer would want you to answer, consider what you want out of a job. Ultimately, you want to find a job that suits your needs and requirements as well as the employer. Shortlyster’s matching is only as good as the information you provide so the more information you can provide, the better the matching works.
