All job posts are also available on Twitter.com with near real time updates. The available Twitter accounts are:
If you see a job you think you might be interested in, and qualified for, open the original job post and follow the instructions in the post.
If there are no instructions on how to apply, then click on the e-mail link in the upper left-hand corner of the post, normally the poster's name or their shop name. Introduce yourself in the e-mail as you would any cover letter and then either attach your resume to the e-mail, or include it in the body. Make sure you spell check your documents, then send them off.
If you get a bad e-mail address, see if you can locate a good address in the Shops page and let them know that the posted e-mail address isn't working. Please be courteous, these are prospective employers and we all make mistakes. Sometimes the response to a job is so overwhelming that the shops email box exceeds quota. When that happens all further emails will get bounced. Just try again the following business day.
In the internet era, where a single user can send hundreds of resumes a day to various recruiters, and where a recruiters job posting on Roadtechs.com may receive hundreds of resumes for a particular job, DO NOT expect that the recruiter will send you a resume receipt response or be updating you on the status of your resume. If your e-mail to the recruiter did not bounce back to you, then the recruiter has received your resume. Any follow-up postings on Roadtechs.com berating recruiters for not "responding" to a users resume submission will be removed.
You can announce your availability for work on Roadtechs. We would appreciate it if you made these types of posts in the forum and in the area in which you normally work (nuclear, petro, etc.) Announcing your availability may only have limited success because most shops are using Roadtechs to post jobs, not necessarily scanning for prospective employees.
When posting your availability on Roadtechs.com, we ask that you do not post resumes or any other documents that contain your personal information (address, SSN, phone numbers, etc.). By posting this information on a web site, you are opening yourself up to identity theft. If we find this type of information on Roadtechs.com, it will be deleted.
