Why am I applying to jobs through the CharityVillage website?

There are a few reasons why we decided to make some changes to the way you apply for jobs, a big one being that our new process gives you, as a job seeker, a host of added benefits.

Applying through our website allows you to keep track of all the positions you applied to while maintaining updated documentation. This will save you from having to search through your documents to find your resume or anything else you want the hiring organization to see. All of it can be saved to your CharityVillage profile and used when applying to jobs through our website.

We also believe resumes do a pretty lousy job of telling your story - what makes you tick, what your strengths are, your experience as it relates to a job you are applying for and what kind of work best suits you. Applying through our website ensures that you are being evaluated based on the requirements of the job and your overall fit for that role. We don’t want you to be passed over because someone doesn't like the format of your resume or you didn’t include the “right” keywords.

Finally, the new application process respects your time. Your information is stored on our secure servers (it can be accessed, updated, or deleted by you at any time) to be used by you when applying for subsequent jobs. You no longer need to go thru the often time consuming process of crafting unique job applications for each and every job you apply to - saving you time.
