Does Expledge consider my work experience if the job title is different but the responsibilities are the same as the jobs I am looking for?
Yes. However, you need to rename the job titles in your resume to match the jobs you are looking for. It is acceptable and common practice to rename the job title on your resume if your work responsibilities are closely aligned.
We only consider work experience as relevant if the job titles on your resume match the jobs you are looking for.
Teaching Assistant, Instructor, Assistant Professor
We only consider this as relevant work experience if you are looking for a teacher or instructor job.
We only consider this as relevant work experience if you are looking for a research job.
Self-employment and Freelancer
We only consider self-employment or freelancing as work experience if you did high-quality work and made a respectable amount of money.
If you got great results, then you may need to disclose the information on your resume:
- Number of clients
- Number of projects
- Team size
No. Expledge only charges a one-time fee. The fee is calculated from your first 12 months, pre-tax, compensation (including signing bonus). Expledge will calculate the fee for you to review before you accept the job offer.
Expledge charges a fee if we place you in a job because we work for you and directly provide services to you. Naturally, you would pay us if we place you in a job so our services are compensated for. We do not work for companies so they do not pay us.
The standard employment agency business model is to find a candidate that meets the employer's requirements. Employment agencies work for the employer and not you. This is why other employment agencies stop speaking with you if you do not meet their job requirements. They need to continue their search for the right candidate.
We would also help you find a full-time job that may provide job security, steady income, bonuses, benefits (e.g. 401k options, health insurance), and work visa sponsorship.
