Manage Your Profile

It is important to keep your personal and academic profiles up-to-date so that Hiatt can notify you about upcoming events/programs and jobs/internships that meet your interests. Employers will also be able to search for you based on your profile. It is important to update your profile at least once a semester so your information is accurate!

Your Profile

To reach your account settings page, click on the Profile Menu in the upper-right corner of B.hired (where your name is!), along the top bar, and select Your Profile.

The Hiatt Career Center has already added some of your basic information to your profile, but it is important for you to go in and add the relevant additional information like, work experience, extracurriculars, projects and more.

Want a quick way to update this information? You can always manually add this information by clicking on the pencil icon in the upper-right hand corner of each box, but for a fast way, click on the “Documents” tab and then select “New Document”. Upload your most current resume (preferably your Hiatt approved resume) to the system. Once your resume has been added to your Documents section, you can choose to “Build Profile From Resume”. This will pull the information out of your resume to add to your profile.

Documents

Be sure to review each item before adding to your profile (by selecting “Add to Profile”). You want to ensure that the information was captured correctly and that you don’t already have this information listed.

Once you have added all the items you want from the list, select “View My Profile”, this will direct you back to your profile page where you can continue to add additional information or edit the information already listed. 

Documents Tab

You will probably use your Documents section 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, work (or writing) samples, transcripts and references to your Documents section 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 reach your documents, click on the Profile Menu in the upper-right corner of B.hired (where your name is!), along the top bar, and select Your Profile. Once in your profile navigate to the “Documents” tab. From here you can review the documents in your profile or add a new document by selecting “New Document”. 

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.

We recommend uploading documents in a Word format. Once you have selected the document you wish to upload, click the Create Document button. The system will automatically convert your document into a pdf format.

When you are uploading your documents you will have the option to make them “Public”. By making your document public employers will be able to download this document directly from your profile themselves. If you choose not to make your documents public they will only be viewable by you for your use in applying to jobs. You can always change this status, but selecting the document and then selecting “Edit”. 

Manage Your Account Settings

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.

How To Search
There are two main ways you can search for jobs or internships. This first is that you can go to “Search” on the left hand navigation. From here you can search for jobs (including internships), interviews, employers and events. You can use filters in each of these categories to find a job in your favorite city or a start up with less than 10 employees.

JobSearch

The second way to search for jobs is by going directly to the “Jobs” section from the left hand navigation. From here you are searching only jobs & internships. You can search by location, job type, the employer’s industry and more. As you add these search parameters your results automatically update to show you the most relevant opportunities. Know the company you want to search for? Have keywords you want to use? Use the search bar located directly under the Job Posting header to search by key terms. 

Saved Searches

Make B.hired work for you by creating several specific saved searches. Saved searches allow you to set custom criteria for your search that you can use over and over again. Create a saved search based on your specific parameters including geographic location, job type, job function, etc. B.hired will find you positions that match your preferences.

To create these saved searches from the Jobs homepage select the filters you would like to use for your search. Once your criteria has been set select the + icon next to “Saved Search”. This will then ask you to set a name and a description for your search (this is to help you remember the parameters you set). Once your searched has been saved you can select “Saved Searches” to see the full list of your searches that you have saved. You can select any of these searches and it will re-run your search based on these criteria. 

Follow Employers & Adding Notes

If you come across Employers of interest to you while you are searching for opportunities there are a couple of things you can do to stay on top of opportunities this employer has. The first option is to “Follow” an Employer. When viewing an Employer page, to follow that Employer simply click on Follow next to the company name. Once you follow an Employer you will get updates in your newsfeed about positions they post to the system as well as any information if they come to campus.

In addition to following an employer you can also add Notes to an employer’s page. These notes are private only to you, but allow you to make notes about why your interested in a position, contacts you may have met at networking opportunities and more. You can also set reminders on these notes. These could be reminders to follow up with someone you met at that company or a reminder to check back and see if they have posted additional jobs 

Interviews (Campus Recruiting Activity) 

Click on the “Interviews” tab to view all employers who have scheduled campus-recruiting activity. From here you can apply to these positions, view the application deadline and the interview dates if you are selected.

If you have been invited to an interview you can review the position and select a timeslot by selecting “Your Upcoming Interviews” from the right-hand side of your home page.
