Tips on how to maximize your Xcruit profile

Find jobs that match your preferences

Find jobs that match your skills, strengths, and experiences. Under the Target Jobs section, edit your Xcruit profile to add your preferred Job Title, Industry, Job Function, and Position.

For Job Title, you can write your current position title, such as IT specialist, Business Analyst, or Accountant. If you are a fresh graduate, it’s ok to write the work you aspire for, such as Engineer, UX Designer, or Data Scientist.

Job Preferences Settings in Xcruit

Find work-from-home jobs, or work near your home

The COVID-19 pandemic has changed our priorities, including our careers. With working from home being the new normal, you can now find work-from-home jobs by adding this option as your preferred work location. This is on top of choosing work locations by city, such as finding jobs in Makati, Ortigas, or Alabang.

For the rest of the options, you can easily fill these in using our dropdown feature. Just choose your preferences that best describe your work from the dropdown menus under Industry, Job Function, and Position. To help you thrive in the long run, choose an industry that matches your needs and interests. Let’s say you’re an HR practitioner. You can practically work in any industry like because all companies have an HR department. Now it comes down to you – are you a night owl that would enjoy the odd hours of the BPO industry? Or maybe you prefer the exciting world of media? Putting an industry preference will give you better job opening matches.
