Bermuda Job Board Process

Bermuda Job Board's objective is to match employers with suitable Bermudian Candidates. We are not responsible for the interviewing and hiring process of each employer.

Candidate Process

Register – Once you have registered with us you will receive an email that will remind you of your credentials, confirm your registration, and prompt you to login. When you register as a candidate you are allowed to make your profile private. Employers have the ability to search candidates who are registered with the Bermuda Job Board. If you do not wish to appear in a general search you can make your profile private and your information will only be shared with the company whose job you have applied to.

My Record – My Record is where you build your resume for employers to view fields such as Tertiary Education, Experience, References etc. We strongly advise that you fill out each field in ‘My Record’ so that your application is complete. When you apply for a job, the information that is filled in your record at the time of applying is the information that is sent out to the employer. However, if you choose to update your record after you apply for a job, the new information is saved and available to be sent with new applications but is not sent to the employers you have previously applied to.

Applying For A Job – When you apply for a job the employer is notified and the information that is in your record is viewable to the employer along with your supporting documents. The employer may then contact you in response to the application. The interviewing and hiring process is managed by the employer who may make direct contact with you should they deem you to be a potential match for their posted job opportunity.

Referrals – If you are registered with Department of Workforce Development your Career Development Officer can refer you to an employer, if they believe you are a suitable candidate for the position. The Career Development Officer will consult with you to confirm your interest before submitting a referral to an employer on your behalf. Referrals are handled in a confidential manner and an email is sent to you alerting you that you have been referred for a job opportunity.

Employer Process

Register – Once you have registered your company with us you will receive an email that will remind you of your credentials, confirm your registration, and prompt you to login. Once you have logged in, you are able to add a secondary contact, which is useful if you have more than one employee in your organization to help in posting and maintaining the job posts.

Submit a Job Opportunity – This is a two-step process. The first step is to fill out the form, which includes fields such as Job Title, Experience, and Education etc. Once you have filled out all the necessary fields and click ‘Submit a Job Opportunity’ your posting status is automatically moved to pending. Pending allows you to revisit the post and edit it before publishing it. To edit the post you go to “All Jobs” under My Recruitment Manager and click the pencil next to the job title. The second step is to change the pending status to post. After you have reviewed your posting and satisfied with the content click “Post” to make the job viewable to candidates. Once the job is posted the edit button is removed and the job is published for candidates to apply. You may cancel your job posting at any time if your position has been filled with a Bermudian.

Jobs with Referrals – Referrals are managed by the Career Development staff at the Department of Workforce Development. If a Career Development Officer has a candidate that they believe is suitable for your job posting they will refer the candidate to you for your consideration. Upon completing the referral process, you are asked to update Department of Workforce Development with the status of the candidate indicating if they were hired. If they were not hired, we are asking for your feedback so that we can assist our clients with the case management process and career development.
