SkillSniper is pioneering new technologies in the employment industry. We are powered by a 100% skill-based platform. We go past the resume level and down to the actual job skill and experience level, providing the best advantage to skilled job seekers. We also invented the concept of skill-based job postings. These one-of-a-kind job postings filter out unqualified candidates. This lets the skilled and experienced job seekers stand out.
Traditional job sites are driven by Boolean keyword text searches, which is very old and ineffective technology. For example, if you are a nurse and an Employer searches the word "nurse", then every job seeker's resume that mentions the word "nurse" will come back in the results. Even the inexperienced job seeker who said "I hope to become a nurse" in their resume! Then guess what happens? A hiring manager gets to sift through hundreds of unqualified resumes and the experienced job seekers often get overlooked.
We are able to execute the most targeted searches available and our pricing is set well below industry standards. This Skillsnper technology allows us to not only provide great service, but we help employers reduce their cost-per-hire. This maximizes the number of job seekers that get jobs.
A skill-based job posting is the solution to problems associated with traditional job postings. They eliminate the need to spend days or weeks sifting through unqualified candidates. A skill-based job posting will automatically identify the most qualified job seekers. This gives experienced job seekers a huge advantage over less qualified job seekers.

This email must be sent from the email address used to originally create the account. If you are looking for work in the future, then you can always create a new account. However, inactivating it will save you time in the future if you are once again looking for a job.
Skillsniper is different than traditional job boards. It is built on a skill-based platform, allowing the skills of experienced job seekers to immediately stand out from those that are less experienced.
There is no set time. We wish we could tell you that it would be immediately - and it sure could be. We do have an Auto Search function. What this means is that once you create your and set up your Profile, it is possible that you might get matched immediately to the requirements of an employer.
It is optional, however, to increase your odds of being selected, it is highly recommended that you include your preferred range. When employers search for job seekers, they will typically have some kind of pay range in mind. Therefore, they may pass you up for other job seekers that have specified a range.
You can always negotiate within your range once an employer contacts you. Understand that many employers want to make sure that you are within their range before committing any time to calling you. You can modify your salary or hourly range at any time. If you are an hourly employee then you can also include a preferred salary range if you choose.
No, you will need to negotiate travel expenses with an employer. The reason is that expenses will vary depending on your location and the contract location. You will need to figure this out when negotiating a contract.
Some helpful tips - the main expenses you will need to consider are:
Airfare if you must fly to your destination
Hotel accommodations if you are staying overnight
Transportation - car rentals or driving your own personal vehicle
At SkillSniper, we stongly believe in the value of job clubs and networking groups. Therefore, we make listings available to job seekers so they can find a club or group that fits their needs. In addition, we don't charge job clubs or networking groups to create a listing and advertise their club or group. This is another free service provided by SkillSniper to enhance the job search experience for everyone involved.
Adding a free job club or networking group listing is simple. Click the "Click to Add Your Free Listing" button and fill out the form. You must fill out the contact information, but you will choose which fields you wish to have displayed in your listing.
Anyone can add or update a job club or networking group listing. However, all new additions or updates will all need to be approved by the facilitator and the SnillSniper job club/networking group administrator. If there is more than one facilitator listed then each will receive an email when there is an update made. Only one of them has to approve the update.
To keep listings fresh for job seekers and avoid old job clubs and networking groups from being displayed, an automated email will be sent to the facilitator every six months asking them to validate the content of the listing. It will only take a few seconds to do this and is the only thing we require you do do in order to advertise your club or group for free on our site.
