Documents Tab

You will probably use your Documents tab more than any other in B.hired. Be sure to upload the most current version of your resume and additional documents such as cover letters, writing samples, transcripts and references to your Documents tab so that you can quickly apply for jobs/internships of interest to you. Hiatt strongly encourages you to get your resume approved by one of our career counselors in order to put your best foot forward. To upload application materials to your Documents tab:

  1. From the B.hired homepage, click on the blue Documents tab
  2. Click the Add New button
  3. Carefully label your document to avoid submitting the wrong documents to an employer. We suggest labeling your resume using your last name, followed by your first name, followed by the field name if you have created different versions of your resume for different fields of interest, followed by the date the resume is uploaded (i.e. Smith.Mary Marketing 8.31.12).  If you are uploading a cover letter, be sure to include the employer name in your label.
  4. Select the correct document type by clicking on the appropriate radio button.
  5. Browse for the document on your hard drive. We recommend uploading documents in a Word format. Once you have selected the document you wish to upload, click the Submit button. The system will automatically convert your document into a pdf format.

Once you have uploaded your documents, we encourage you to select your Default Resume. We recommend that your default resume be your Hiatt approved resume. If you RSVP to attend any of Hiatt's career forums and choose to share your resume with registered employers, B.hired will automatically upload your default resume for employers to view. In addition, if you give Hiatt permission to share your resume with employers, we will use your default resume when creating resume books for employers. In order to make an uploaded resume your default resume, click on the 'Make Default' button located under the name of the resume you would like to use in your list of uploaded documents.

Search Job & Internship Postings

Need a job or internship? Brandeis students and alumni have access to 14,000+ postings annually via B.hired. Employers who specifically want to hire Brandeis students and alumni post these positions. Apply to postings in minutes with resumes, cover letters and additional documents uploaded to your Documents tab in B.hired.

Within the B.hired system you can search for jobs and internships using four different posting systems. In fact, your search isn't complete unless you are using all four. Hiatt recommends that you prioritize B.hired Positions, LACN and NIC as these postings specifically target Brandeis students. Learn more about each type:

  1. B.hired Positions
  2. Liberal Arts Career Network (LACN) Jobs
  3. Nationwide Internships Consortium (NIC) Jobs
  4. External Job Board Positions

B.hired Positions

B.hired Positions are job and internship postings from employers who specifically want to hire Brandeis students and alumni. To access current postings: B.hired > Jobs & Internships tab > B.hired Positions.

Liberal Arts Career Network (LACN)

LACN is a group of 32 highly selective liberal arts institutions, including Brandeis, that work together to post over 8,000 jobs and internships for students and alumni of member schools each year. Similar to B.hired Positions, the postings in LACN specifically target Brandeis and like-minded students. The layout and features on the LACN site are similar to those in B.hired, which means you can create custom job search agents to make your search more efficient. To access current postings: B.hired > Click on the LACN 'Jump To' button on your student homepage.

Nationwide Internships Consortium (NIC)

Like LACN, NIC is a group of 17 national colleges and universities that work together to post internships for students and alumni of member schools. This is an especially good resource for locating internship opportunities on the West Coast. To access current postings: B.hired > Click on the NIC 'Jump To' button on your LACN student homepage.

External Job Board Positions

External Job Board Positions are positions compiled from various nationwide job search sites including Indeed.com, SimplyHired.com and Monster.com. While these sites can be effective and many students have received jobs from them, these postings are not specifically targeting Brandeis students. To access current postings: B.hired > Jobs & Internships tab > External Job Board Positions.

Create a search agent based on your specific parameters including geographic location, job type, job function, etc. B.hired will email you positions that match your preferences on a daily, weekly or monthly basis.
