**IF YOU ARE ALREADY A REGISTERED JOB SEEKER OR EMPLOYER, YOU WILL SEE THE RELEVANT FAQ PAGE AFTER YOU LOG IN WITH YOUR USERNAME AND PASSWORD**
Q: How do I join/participate?
A: Just click on the relevant tab at the top of the page. If you are a job-seeking couple, click the "Job-Seeker" tab, then choose "Join" from the drop down menu to view your participation options. If you are an employer, click the "Employers" tab, then choose "Post Job" from the drop down menu. Follow the registration links from there.
Q: There are other job posting sites we can visit. Why WorkingCouples.com?
A: Because all of our jobs are for couples! We maintain the largest one-source job bank with jobs specifically for couples. You could spend time other sites, but if you want a "job for two" why not go to the best source? After spending hours sifting through traditional job sites, we think you will see the value in a site that EVERY JOB is suitable for a couple.
Q: I know it's only $9.95 per month for a paid subscription, but we are flat broke. What do you have for us?
A: We understand completely. Even if you cannot afford the 27 to 33 cents per day to be a paid subscriber, you can still fully access all of the Featured Job Openings (the ones in the green boxes) with our free subscription program. Click the "Job-Seekers" tab at the top of the page, then choose the "Join" link from the drop down menu to review your options.
Q: There are tons of jobs posted on the internet. Why don't I just surf the web for couples jobs?
A: Again, we already maintain the largest source of jobs specifically for couples. We post thousands of jobs per year. How much is your time worth? We also have many jobs that you will only find on our site.
Q: Can I get updates on Twitter or Facebook?
A: You can now! We have a WorkingCouples.com page on Facebook (follow us!). You can also follow us on Twitter (WorkingCouples) and get our newest job tweets as they are posted.
Q: What type of applicants are employers normally looking for?
A: All kinds! Of course the traditional husband/wife teams, but also parent/child, friend/friend, significant others. The most important aspect is a good fit. Don't be shy about applying for positions you feel you are qualified for.
Q: Where can we expect the positions to be located geographically?
A: Anywhere in the world. Although we are a US-based organization (which means most of the openings are in North America) eventually you will see positions from every continent (well‚ maybe not Antarctica!). You might be inclined to take a job in the sunny Caribbean, or you may even apply for a job that doesn't require you to even relocate.
Q: I am applying for a job in another country. How do I know what the visa/passport requirements will be?
A: That is a question for the employer to answer, as every country has it's own laws and rules.
Q: Why do I see expired listings?
A: Subscribers when they are logged in no longer see the expired listings, just the current ones. We show expired listings to prospective subscribers in order to provide you with a broader view of the types of jobs that become available on our site over time. Obviously job openings are temporary. New listings get published every day, and every day other listings expire. If you were to only see todays' listings you would have no idea of the types of jobs that would get posted over time. We can't predict the future openings, so we show you (a prospective subscriber) the openings that have expired.Again, subscribers (when logged in) don't see the expired listings, just the current ones. To review your subscription options, please visit our site and click the “Job Seekers - Subscribe" tab at the top of any page, then choose the "Join" option from the drop down menu.
Q: We subscribed, but don't seem to have access. What's wrong?
A: This normally occurs for one of two reasons. First - when you subscribe with one username and try to access the site with a different username. If you have any trouble logging in as a subscriber, just drop us an email with the details and we will get you the proper access (usually within an hour or two).The other issue is confusion between free subscriptions and paid subscriptions. To see the differences, go here: workingcouples.com/subscribe-now
Q: What contact information will be provided to us when we subscribe?
A: That's totally up to the employer that posts the job opening. It could be a phone number, fax number, email address, website, or postal address. The employer may wish to remain anonymous at this point of the process and require you to apply via the website. It could also be any combination of these things. Whatever method(s) of contact the employer provides, that is what we will pass on to you.
