We believe that finding an engineering job within the energy, process and infrastructure industries should be easy. That said, from our own conversations with candidates, we know that it can be a long and difficult process.
That’s why we’re pleased to announce the launch of the new Airswift jobs board, which offers a range of features to improve your job search experience.
Our jobs board contains hundreds of exciting technical and engineering opportunities in countries all over the world, from quality control operators to process engineers and production superintendents.
Read on to find out how to use Airswift’s job search tool to find the role you’re looking for.
Search for a job
To search for a job, you can simply enter the keyword most relevant to the role you’re searching for, e.g. ‘process engineer’.
You can also specify how far you’re willing to travel for work and narrow your search down by filtering according to discipline, location and contract type. This helps you find engineering roles specific to what you’re looking for, meaning you won’t need to spend time trawling through streams of listings that aren’t relevant to your skillset and requirements.
You can also save suitable jobs from your search results and apply for them later on.
Create an account and profile
Though you can search for a job without having an account, signing up to create your own profile is very beneficial. If you want to apply for another job later on, you’ll need to complete the registration process to create an account. We’ll invite you to do this via email when you submit your first application.
Having an account will vastly simplify your job search, as you can save documentation such as CVs and cover letters, so that you don’t need to re-upload them every time you apply for a job.
Another benefit to creating an account and user profile is that you can set up job alerts that enable you to receive email notifications when jobs that match what you’re looking for become available. You’ll also be able to apply for your saved jobs from your profile.
You will also receive suggestions on suitable roles based on your previous searches and jobs you’ve applied for in the past through the jobs board.
Setting up your profile
To sign up for an account, navigate to the top right hand corner and click ‘register’.
This will take you to a form, where you’ll need to submit the following information:
Password (you’ll be prompted to create one and then confirm it in the next field)
Country of residence
A copy of your CV
Any supporting information that might help us assist with your job search
As an alternative to filling in the above information, there’s also the option to register with LinkedIn. This will pull the relevant information from your LinkedIn profile to save you time when signing up.
Once you hit the register button, you’ll instantly get access to your profile.
Using your profile
On your profile, you’ll see three tabs: overview, profile and jobs.
On the overview tab, you have the option to upload a profile picture and edit your profile information. There’s also a profile column, where all your information will appear once you’ve filled it in. You will also be able to access your CV and any other uploaded documents from this tab.
There is a column for job alerts and another for suggested jobs; this is where suggestions based on your recent searches and applications will appear.
Your saved jobs will also appear on the overview tab, so you can easily access and apply for them at a time convenient to you.
The next tab is the profile tab. Here, you can change your password if necessary and edit the personal information you submitted during the registration process. You can also access your CV and other documents from here, and add extra information such as your employment preferences (contract, permanent, overseas or rotational), whether you’re willing to relocate and your preferred sector.
The final tab is the jobs tab. Here, you can view your saved and suggested jobs and job alerts. You can also create job alerts from here.
To do this, simply type in the job title and select the location, discipline and job type from the drop down menus. Then click create alert to receive email notifications as soon as your desired job becomes available.
