About Jipe

What is Jipe?

Jipe is an app that allows job seekers and employers to find their ideal match for each other. The program connects you to what you are searching for without the hassle of the search. Like online dating, but for jobs, you can swipe away at potential prospects!

How is Jipe different from other job searching sites?

Jipe connects entry-level candidates with entry-level jobs through our simple interface. With a few basic steps, job seekers and employers can start searching to find their next job or employee with half the hassle of other job posting sites. Jipe does the searching for you, and all you have to do is swipe!

Do I have to download the App to use Jipe?

To search for jobs, the free Jipe app is the only way to tap into all the amazing features and job postings! Employers create and manage their accounts on the website, but once that is created, they can login with their business credentials to swipe on candidates!

Job Seekers

What does it cost?

Jipe is FREE for job seekers! Yasssss!

Do I need a resume to use Jipe?

No! Your profile contains all information needed to find an entry-level job. Please note that some businesses may require you to go through their application process outside our app. In that case, you may need a resume. But Jipe doesn’t require it. 🙂 YAY!

Will I be shown job postings that don’t match what I am looking for?

Nope! Jipe uses matchmaking to make sure that you only see job postings that fit what you are looking for. We also won’t spam your email inbox! No wasting time here, and that’s how we like it!

How do I remove my profile once I have found a job?

You can easily deactivate your profile, which hides it from businesses until you reactivate it. Deactivating your profile is recommended, because we will securely store your account information until you’re ready to Jipe again. It’s convenient and easy!

If deactivating your profile isn’t right for you, you can also delete your profile. Just remember if you delete your profile, you will have to start from scratch if you want to Jipe again.

Do businesses know if I favorite their job?

Businesses will be sent a notification (based on their notification settings) that someone favorited their job. They can then swipe through job seekers’ profiles, swiping on their favorites, with the goal of creating the best job matches possible!

Does a business have to favorite me back in order to apply?

No. You can apply for a job even if the business does not favorite you back. Awesome!

Can I contact a business I want to work for?

If you favorite a job, AND they favorite you back, you will be able to in-app message them with any questions. They will also be able to send you in-app messages.

Can businesses swipe on me too?

Yes! Businesses can actively look for their ideal job seekers by swiping. Jipe is helping to find the best job matches for you and for businesses saving precious time and energy for all. So dope!

Employers

Do candidates know if I favorite their profile?

Yes! Job seekers will be sent a notification (based on their notification settings) that a job favorited their profile. They can then swipe through jobs, swiping on their favorites, with the goal of creating the best job matches possible.

What information will I see about a candidate on their profile?

A candidates profile should contain all the information you need to quickly evaluate if you want to favorite them for a job listing. Businesses have access to a candidate’s name, short bio, work history, tagged skills, availability, photo (optional to the user), and pitch video (also optional to the user). Perfect!

Does a business have to favorite a candidate back in order for them to submit an application?

No. They can apply for a job even if you do not favorite them back. The more applications the better!

How can I contact someone I want to interview or hire?

You can use our in-app messaging feature to contact your favorite candidates for more information, ask them to apply, or to invite them to an interview. You can easily send a message request to any candidate you like!

We take the security of our users seriously. We will not share email addresses or phone numbers of our users with businesses. This information is only shared when an application is submitted, requiring a candidate’s approval.

How do I know if an applicant is old enough to fill the role?

We will not share birthdays or ages of our users with businesses. However, Jipe ensures you will not see candidates who do not meet the age requirement of a job listing.

Does is cost anything to keep our account even if we’re not actively trying to fill a role?

No. Jipe only charges for active job listings in any given month. You can deactivate a job listing at any time, and we will not charge you for months it is not active. Deactivated listings are securely stored in your account, so you don’t have to recreate it again later. That’s awesome!
