WHO CAN PARTICIPATE IN JOBNOW?
JobNow is available to public - and soon, academic - libraries that are members of CLC.

CAN I TRY JOBNOW BEFORE I COMMIT TO SIGNING UP?

HOW CAN I SIGN UP FOR JOBNOW?

WHEN I CLICK ON MY LINK TO JOBNOW IT DOESN'T ASK ME FOR A LIBRARY CARD BARCODE NUMBER. ANYTHING I'M DOING WRONG?
Not at all! When you registered for JobNow you supplied your library's IP address which allows all patrons who have access to your computers to use JobNow without entering their library card barcode number. When your special link (main.LIBRARYNAME.clc.jobnow.brainfuse.com) is accessed from a computer outside of your library you should see a login page where your library's barcode number is required for access to JobNow.

WHAT ARE THE HOURS FOR THE JOBNOW LIVE INTERVIEW COACHES?
You can chat with a live interview coach 7 days a week from 3:00 - 11:00 PM EST.

WHERE ARE THE JOBNOW INTERVIEW COACHES AND RESUME PROFESSIONALS LOCATED?
Brainfuse has contracted with thousands of trained resume and interview specialists located all over North America. They have also assured us that background checks are conducted on everyone involved with JobNow.

IS JOBNOW OFFERED IN SPANISH?
Yes! Even though you don't see any Spanish language on the JobNow site, there are resume and interview specialists who can correspond in Spanish. If your patron submits a resume in Spanish or requests commentary in Spanish, the JobNow staff will reply accordingly. At this time support is only offered in Spanish and English.

WHAT IF A PATRON LOSES THEIR LOGIN/PASSWORD TO THEIR ACCOUNT ON JOBNOW?
Please call 866.BRAINFUSE (866.272.4638), Monday through Friday, 8AM - 9PM EST for assistance.

IS JOBNOW COMPATIBLE WITH LINUX OR MAC?
Yes, as long as your system can post a file in any of the following file formats, JobNow will work with LINUX, MAC, and other operating systems. Accepted file formats: .doc,.docx, .html, .txt, .xls .pdf, .jpg, .gif

WHOM DO I CONTACT TO LEARN MORE?
Contact Pam Najarian at CLC - pnajarian@ctlibrarians.org or 860-344-8777.

I'VE SUBMITTED THE REQUIRED INFORMATION TO REGISTER MY LIBRARY WITH JOBNOW - WHERE IS MY ACCOUNT?
Setup of your JobNow account can take some time. After you have submitted your information, CLC processes your information and sends it to Brainfuse. Once Brainfuse has created your unique library JobNow URL, a little more processing is done on our end and your link is emailed to the administrators you have designated. We've seen turn-around time from a few days up to a week and a half. We will send you your setup information as soon as we get it.
