When I log into MAXConnect, why does it keep taking me to a Microsoft page?
MAXConnect now features Microsoft Word Online. This means you can now build and edit your resumes from within MAX Connect. Put you username and password in and you will land in the MAXConnect homepage.
From here, you can create and update your resume in Word. You can edit any documents created in Office 2016 and Office 365.
If you have a resume already made in another program (such as Notepad, Google Docs, WordPad or even old versions of Word), simply copy and paste the information from the old document into a new one and you’re ready to go.
Why should I use MAXConnect?
There are many reasons!
Firstly, the job listings you see after you have completed your My Job Fit profile are personalised to you. This means you can save time, seeing just the jobs that are suited to you and your skillset, qualifications and the type of work you would like.
Being part of MAXConnect allows you to search and apply for opportunities anywhere, anytime by logging in on your own computer or device.
Finally, an application on MAXConnect is 10 times more likely to result in you landing a job, than any other online job search portal. If you attend a Qualify and Prepare session delivered by our employer service team, you are more than 50 times more likely to land the job than those applying elsewhere online.
What is a Qualify and Prepare session?
In some cases, if you are shortlisted for a job you have applied for, our employer service team will conduct group sessions with you and the other shortlisted candidates.
These sessions are designed to prepare you and provide you with information about the employer and the role that isn’t available publicly.
This information gives you a boost – both in knowledge and confidence during an interview process. Customers that attend a Qualify and Prepare session are more than 50 times more likely to get a job than those applying generally online.
What is a “My Job Fit” profile?
The My Job Fit profile is our unique way of connecting you with the right job.
When you join MAXConnect, you will be asked to complete a profile and My Job Fit questionnaire – the information you provide will help us match you to a job that best suits your skills and ability.
It should take you about 30 minutes, but save you a lot of time and help us find the right job for you. It also allows us to ensure that once you’ve got the job you want, we can provide you with the tailored support you may need to keep it.
We don’t want to waste your time, so when you come in to meet with our team, we can talk to you about the questionnaire and that perfect job fit, and we can even begin to find you the right job from the very first time you come in to see us.
Where do the jobs on MAXConnect come from?
Jobs come from all sorts of places. For example, employers might call us and say they have a job available and provide us with the list of requirements.
We also go and find jobs—we talk to employers, and gain an understanding of labour markets. In fact, we have over 30 people tasked with managing our partnerships with employers. Relationships of trust and confidence mean we are often the first port of call for those employers when they’re looking for staff.
With our partner employers, we know things about the role or selection process that provide our customers with a competitive advantage in finding, securing and sustaining work.
All of this means when you jump on MAXConnect there are many jobs there available to you right now and every opportunity has added value, not available anywhere else.
Can I still come into a MAX office after I join MaxConnect?
MAX offices are yours as much as they are ours. You will continue to have scheduled appointments, but if you wish to come in and get on MAXConnect using our computers or our terminals, feel free.
You’re always welcome.
