Q&A: How To Utilize Your Account


We’ve had questions from some of you about ways to use and utilize your account. In this post, we will answer those questions and give you advice for the best ways to use the HumanSurge platform. If you have a question that isn’t listed in this section, feel free to reach out to us on social media or directly email kara@humansurge.org to have your question answered.


Q: What’s the first thing I should do after I sign up for HumanSurge?


A: After creating an account, you want to get your profile to be 100% complete. To do this, you should start by adding all of your job experience, which will make your profile more visible in search results. From there, you should add an elevator pitch, verify your profile, and upload your CV,. Completing your profile will highlight your experience, and make you a more trusted candidate for organizations to hire.


Q: I don’t want my HumanSurge profile information to be visible when people do an internet search of my name. How can I make it private?


A: We have options for both public and private profiles. If you want to make your profile private, go to “My Account” and then select “Security and Privacy” in the settings. Then choose your preferences under the privacy settings.


Q: How can I improve my cluster ranking?


Your cluster ranking is how you are ranked, as compared to other people who are in the same cluster as you. In order to get ranked higher, and thus be more visible to organizations, it would be helpful for you to complete your profile, submit names for references checks, and get verified. Go here to get started!


Q: I’ve completed most of my profile but I still haven’t been hired. What can I do?


While uploading your CV and completing your profile will make you a more trustworthy candidate for organizations, you can also apply for individual jobs on your own. Our list of vacancies is frequently updated, and we also share job offers on our social media. By making yourself aware of the job openings and directly applying for ones that interest you, you will increase your chances of being hired.


Q: Will I get a job if I sign up for HumanSurge?


Signing up for HumanSurge is only the first step in getting hired, and you will still need to do some work on your own. By keeping your information updated, trying to improve your CV and elevator pitch, and seeking out the current vacancies, you will increase your chances of getting hired. While we work hard to offer you job opportunities, it’s also important for you to be active in your job search.
