Other Frequently Asked Questions
How do I reset my password?
You can request a new password at http://careers.insidehighered.com/remindme or by going to the homepage, selecting “Sign In” and then clicking “Forgotten Password?”
How do I search for or find jobs?
There are several ways to find jobs. From the homepage, you can browse jobs available in each of the main categories: Faculty Jobs, Administrative Jobs, Executive Administration Jobs, and Jobs Outside Higher Education. Each main category contains additional subject areas to help you further refine your search. You can also search all jobs by using the search engine on the homepage or using the search on the “Find a Job” page. The “Find a Job” page, available from the main menu, also allows you to browse by categories or use search keywords. You can further refine your results by institution type, location, and even special criteria such as “Tenured and Tenure-Track.” Finally, you can browse vacancies by institution.
Can I search for all jobs posted by a specific institution?
Yes. To see all jobs available at a specific institution click on “Search employer” in the navigational toolbar. The resulting employer directory lists all institutions and the number of jobs they have available on our site. If you are searching for a particular institution, you can also type the name in the search bar on the left side of the page.
Do I need an account?
You do do not need an account to browse available jobs, however, we recommend creating one. Creating an account allows you to:
- View and save jobs and access them on any device (search on your phone, find the perfect job, then apply when you get to a computer)
- Easily apply for jobs with just one click
- Create and manage Job Alert emails
- Upload your resume so employers can find you when recruiting for open positions
How often will I receive job alerts?
You will only receive emails when relevant jobs become available. You can cancel alerts at any time.
How do I change or unsubscribe from job alert emails?
Log in and click on your name at the top right corner of the screen, then select “Your jobs” and click “Job alerts.” From there you can preview, edit or delete your job alerts. We also include an unsubscribe link at the bottom of each job alert email.
I already have an account with Inside Higher Ed Careers. How do I log in to the new system?
All of your data, including your active job alerts, have been migrated to the new site. You will need to reset your password when you log in to the site for the first time. You should have received an email notifying you of your new, temporary password. When you sign in using the temporary password, you will be prompted to select a new password. If you did not receive the email with the new password, you can request a new password at http://careers.insidehighered.com/remindme or by going to the homepage, selecting “Sign In” and then clicking “Forgotten Password?” You will be asked to enter your email address and our system will send you an email with a temporary password (please check your junk or spam folder if it does not arrive).
I already have a jobseeker login using my institutional email address. I am getting an error when I try to use that email address to post a job. What should I do?
If you initially registered as a jobseeker and then attempt to register as an employer using the same email address, you will receive a notification that says, “Please contact our team for access to this section.” This is a security measure to ensure that only legitimate recruiters have access to the recruiter section of our website. Ultimately, this is to protect the privacy of jobseekers like you. If you need to post a job, please call 1-202-659-9208 or email firstname.lastname@example.org and we will assist you. We recommend using a personal email account for job searches. There are a number of free email services available for this purpose, such as Gmail, Yahoo or Outlook.com.
I have a recruiter login for your site. Can I use that to look for a job?
While you can use the same credentials to access the jobseeker portion of our website, we do not recommend doing so. We suggest using a personal email account for job searches. There are a number of free email services available for this purpose, such as Gmail, Yahoo or Outlook.com.
Is my profile visible to employers?
As a jobseeker, you have the option to control your profile visibility. If you do not feel want your profile to appear in the results for recruiter searches, you can keep your profile private to all institutions or exclude certain institution(s). These options are available on the “Your profile” page under “Who can view your profile.”
I found a great job! Can I save it for later?
Yes! You can save jobs that interest you by clicking on the star icon in the top right corner of the job posting. If you are not logged in you will be prompted to log into your account to save the job. To view your saved jobs, click on your name at the top right corner of the screen, then select “Your jobs” and click “Saved jobs.” You can remove saved jobs by clicking on the “Delete” link next to the job in the “Saved jobs” list.
I got a new job! Can I delete my account?
Congratulations! While you can delete your account, we don’t recommend doing so. Staying in our system will allow you to easily keep tabs on great new careers in higher education or to get notified about new jobs that might be a perfect fit for your next opportunity. If you do still wish to delete your account, you may do so by clicking on your name at the top right corner of the screen, then selecting “Your account.” The “Delete your account” link is at the bottom of the page (beneath the “Marketing preferences” section). You will be prompted to enter your password to confirm the deletion of your account. Please note that all information and attachments (including your resume and job application history) will be deleted and cannot be recovered.
How do I upload my résumé/CV?
Click on your name at the top right corner of the screen, then select “Your profile.” From here you have the option of viewing your current profile, editing your profile, attaching a resume file, managing your profile’s visibility settings, excluding certain employers, and deleting your profile.
How do I include a cover letter with my application?
If the employer has opted to receive applications via our site, the option to include a cover letter will appear when you click to apply to the job. You can copy and paste your cover letter into the relevant text box.
I have multiple résumés/CVs. How many can I upload into the system?
You may have one resume attached to your account at a time. However, you will always have the option to use a different resume when applying to a particular job through our site. To use a different resume, click “Upload a different resume” on the application form and follow the prompts to use an alternate resume in your application. You can also replace your current resume with a new one at any time. To do so, click on your name at the top right corner of the screen, then select “Your profile.” Click the “Change resume” button to upload a new resume or CV.
How do I change the email address or password associated with my account?
To update your email address, log in and click on your name at the top right corner of the screen, then select “Your account” and click “Email Address.” To change your password, select “Password” on the same screen.
