Say hello to simplicity

Secure In-app registration

First download the app and then let's get started… The first time you open the app you will be asked for 7 pieces of information and to verify your account by text. These pieces of data make it much easier to ‘quick apply’ for jobs and to be discovered by companies that you wish to see you (see preferences). You will then walk through the brief tutorial and be directed to the homepage.

Beautifully designed. A joy to use.

Homepage

Here you will see a map of all the jobs in your area, together with navigation icons and job listings at the bottom of the screen. Simply swipe right through the tiles to see each job in-turn, or click the dot on the map to have that tile listing displayed. It’s that simple!

Save Jobs

If you want to save a job until later, click the heart icon and save. These will appear in ‘Saved Jobs’ in your menu - so you can apply for these later.

View vacancy details

Click on a tile to view the job. Viewing the job means you see the job description so you can decide if you want to apply. Click ‘Open’ and NexJob will send you to the Company career website and the vacancy, where you can apply directly for the job.

Map

There are 3 Icons top right over the map. The magnifying glass icon is a search and filter menu, the lines icon is a list view of the jobs and the target icon is a takes you back to where you are on the map. You can move the map around with your finger to find a new location. If you move out of your area a box will appear top left ‘Search this area’. Clicking this will present all the jobs in that area. Clicking the target icon (which will change to red), brings you back to where you are.

My Profile

This is where you can add supplementary information about you that's held within the app. For quick apply companies, having this data already in your phone means you can minimise the amount of time it takes to make a job application.

My jobs

This is where any jobs you’ve applied for appear. For any quick apply jobs, this is where any instructions and information will be held. If you’re booking an interview slot, undertaking a video interview, or receiving feedback, the app will send you an alert and you can find the request or information here. If you’re successful in getting your NexJob, then any contract, offer or onboarding materials can be found here too. For those companies not using NexJob you can still find a recognition that you’ve applied and add feedback and review information on your application time and experience. Organisations use this helpful information to perfect their candidate experience, so your feedback is gratefully received.

Saved jobs

Any jobs you want to save for later appear here. Click the heart icon to move jobs to your saved jobs.

Job alerts

Any job search alerts you have set up in ‘Settings’ will appear here. You’ll get a push notification when a job is posted and the job will appear in your ‘My Job Alerts’ area. You can change the settings for this by clicking ‘My Job Alerts’, as well as clearing all notifications.

Settings

This allows you to control ‘My job alerts’ (covered above), plus the ability to hide your profile. Hide my profile from gives you a drop down menu where you can select the organisations that can’t see or find you in any talent searches. They will be able to see you however, if you apply for a job.

How to apply & interviews

We want you to get that NexJob! Here are ways that you can be your best:

Making the most of your application

We designed the application process to be as quick, easy and straightforward as possible. You can apply for jobs by clicking on search on this website, or better still, download the NexJob app from your app store and manage your application through to onboarding.

This means you don’t have to complete your personal details over and over again on application forms as it's all held in the NexJob App!

Once you register on the App, you’ll join our talent pool and receive alerts when something that matches your preferences comes along.

If you’re successful and shortlisted for a job, usually you’ll be invited to a first interview. If it’s a video interview, things might be a bit different but a lot of the following rules will apply.

Making the most of your interview

You’ve been given an interview - congratulations! Now it’s time to prepare. Think about practicing your answers to interview questions and preparing your own questions for the organisation you’re apply for, such as:

Making a great first impression
What to bring to the interview
Etiquette and body language
How to win them over with your approach

Practise your answers

In the days before your job interview, think about the following:

1. Research the organisation you can go into your interview with a solid understanding of the requirements of the job and how your background makes you a great fit. Learn more about the culture and what others are saying about the company.

2. Prepare your answer to the common question: “Tell me about yourself, and why are you interested in this role?”. The idea is to quickly communicate who you are and what value you will bring to the role.

3. Re-read the job description. You may want to print it out and begin underlining specific skills they are looking for. Think about examples from your past and current work that align with these requirements. Prepare to be asked about times in the past when you used a specific skill and to tell stories with a clear Situation, Task, Action and Result. Writing out a few examples before the interview can help you respond with good quality answers.

4. Practise! Actually practising your answers out loud is an incredibly effective way to prepare. Say them to yourself or ask a friend to help run through questions and answers. Ask your friend for feedback in your answers. You’ll find you gain confidence as you get used to saying the words.

Prepare smart questions

Interviews are a two-way street. Organisations like you to ask questions: They want to know that you’re thinking seriously about what it would be like to work there. Here are some questions you may want to consider asking in your interview:

“Can you explain some of the day-to-day responsibilities for this job?”
“How would you describe the characteristics of someone who would succeed in this role?”
“If I were in this position, how would my performance be measured? How often?”
“What departments does this team work with regularly? How do these departments typically collaborate? What does that process look like?”
“What are the challenges you’re currently facing in this role?”

Think about first impressions

Dress for the job you want. If you’re speaking to a recruiter before the interview, you can ask them about the dress code in the workplace and choose your outfit accordingly. If you don’t have someone to ask, research the company to learn what’s appropriate.

Don’t forget the little things. Shine your shoes, make sure your nails are clean and tidy, and check your clothes for holes, stains, pet hair and loose threads. Brush your teeth.

Plan your schedule so that you can arrive 10–15 minutes early. Map out your route to the interview location so you can be sure to arrive on time. Consider doing a trial run. If you’re taking public transportation, identify a backup plan if there are delays or closures.

Pro-tip: When you arrive early, use the extra minutes to observe the workplace dynamics.

What to bring to the interview

Set aside time before your interview to get the following items together.

A copy of your CV on paper. While the hiring manager has likely seen your application, they may not have read every line. Or you might be speaking with someone new. In either case, you might want to highlight specific accomplishments on your copy that you can discuss.

A pen and a small notebook. Prepare to take notes, but not on your smartphone or any other electronic device. Write information down so that you can refer to these details in your follow-up thank you notes. Maintain eye contact as much as possible.

A written version of the prepared questions for your interviewers.

A single bag for all your materials. It’s easy to mistake nervous for disorganised, so keep all your documents in a single, multi-use messenger bag or portfolio. Make sure that it’s professional and appropriate to the corporate culture as well as your own style.

Remember good manners and body language

Be authentic, concise and upbeat

Respond truthfully to the questions you’re asked. Tie your answers back to your skills and accomplishments by providing examples of solutions and results you’ve achieved. If you cannot immediately think of an appropriate answer, say “Let me think of the best example to share,” pause as you collect your thoughts and then respond.

Keep your answers short and focused, making sure that you actually answer the question you’ve been asked. Your time with each interviewer is limited so be mindful of rambling. Let your interviewer lead the conversation.

Don’t speak negatively about current and former employers or colleagues. Companies want to hire problem solvers who overcome tough situations. If you’re feeling discouraged about your current job, focus on talking about what you’ve gained from that experience and what you want to do next.

Above all... Be yourself. Be confident. Be relaxed.
