Candidate FAQ

Welcome to Select Leaders Candidate's Frequently Asked Questions. Here we've provided the most common questions we've received from our candidates about how to use our website.If you have a question that you don't see listed, please contact our support team at support@selectleaders.com


Getting Started

After registration you are able to upload multiple cover letters so that you don’t have to upload a cover letter every time you apply to a role. Within your account click on Create new cover letter. Then when it comes to applying you can simply drop down to a cover letter from your account and edit the template before applying. Your information is always confidential and only those employers who you submit your information to can see it.
Log into your account and navigate to ‘My cover letter’ located within your account. Click on Manage your cover letters and click the link button to review. Just before you apply you are also able to drop down to your ideal uploaded cover letter and make edits you need before applying.
The only way an employer is able to see candidate information is:
  1. If you have applied to a position with a resume and cover letter
  2. When a resume is uploaded and you have given the employer permission to search for the resume within our resume database, a product employers can use to locate talent.
Please note, once you delete the resume from your account it will be taken out of our database. For more information on privacy please see: Privacy Policy
When you apply to roles you will receive an email from applications@selectleaders.com confirming your application has been sent. Your application can also be checked within the ‘My jobs’ section of your account. As soon as you click apply the employer will have received your application. If you deem it appropriate you can utilize your network to engage with the company. Keep in mind if you were redirected to the company’s own unique career center you will have applied through their system.
If you are unable to locate a job you have previously viewed on SelectLeaders or throughput our network of career centers the job posting has either run out of its allotted time and automatically deactivated or because the employer has opted to deactivate the role themself within their account. You can always attempt to reach out to the company personally, if you believe that to be appropriate but unfortunately, we are unable to give out contact details.
Click on Find Jobs to take advantage of our job search. We would encourage you to keep your search simple at first to get a feel of the positions live throughout our network by starting with Real Estate Field, adding location and then becoming more granular with the various elements, such as key words and miles radius. SelectLeaders has an incredibly sophisticated elastic search mechanism set up for both our job board and resume database search, allowing impressive matching between candidates and employers. Benefits allow searches to perform incredibly quickly, with large volumes of data weighted so favorable results appear first. Click here for access to our Talent Kit
