We have upgraded our software which will help you optimise your job search and make finding work easier.

If you haven’t already done so, register your job-seeker or candidate profile on our site. Having a registered candidate profile makes applying for multiple new jobs quick and hassle-free.  

But, there is work required to get your profile perfect and it’s up to you to properly optimise your job search with the new RecruitMyMom software.

When your profile is correctly completed and you have signed up to receive communication from RecruitMyMom, you will get tailored job alerts that suit your skillset.

The sections in the Candidate Portal are:

This section covers your basic information including contact and personal information, high school and dates attended, a drop-down of software applications, and professional skills. If one of your software or professional skills is missing from the drop-down, include them in the Skills and Experience section.
