There are times in your career when finding a new contract assignment can be extremely difficult.
ContractJobHunter has the tools to make that job much easier on an ongoing basis. Members (those
posting a resume) can search our jobs database, be part of our online resume database, and also
read Contract Employment Weekly online - all at no charge. Searching for a job can be easily done
from our home page by entering keywords. Members can submit their resume seamlessly to staffing
firms through our website.
The additional below services are only available with Premium Membership at a charge of $25 per
Hot Sheet of Available Contractors - for unemployed members (or those with layoff notices). We
email your name, address, phone, email address, a link to your online resume, and job
classification(s) to our advertising contract staffing firms. May be submitted every week.
EZjobs - Members can have our computer search each day's new job postings for openings that match
your pre-set keywords. Those listings will then be emailed to you with all the data we have about
E-Resume - From job search results, members simply click a submit button for each job posting and
your online resume will be automatically emailed with an attached memo stating the specific job
posting to which you are responding. You will also be able to review and edit your online resume
before submitting it.
Resume Email History Tracking - Members can view their resume activity, for the last 30 days, to
see when and to whom your online resume has been emailed. This service tracks resumes sent by Job
Search with E-Resume, updated resume distribution, or ContractJobHunter advertiser.
Resume View Alert - Every time your online resume is viewed by a recruiter, we immediately email
you a notification. Included in the email is the name of the staffing firm, the recruiter/s name
(if known), keywords that the recruiter used to find your resume, and contact information. Keep in
mind that we must have your current email address in order for you to participate in this service.
You may opt out of this service, if you wish.
Daily Resume Distribution - When members first enter a new resume into our online database, you
can choose to have us email it to all current advertisers. Recruiters can choose to receive all new
resumes, submit keywords to receive only selected resumes, or receive no resumes at all. Each time
you update your resume, you can once again choose to have us email your resume. The default is set
to not distribute the resume; only members who check the box for distribution will have their
Membersí Message Board - Members can leave messages and questions for other members on this
board. Discussed sub- jects have included: Insurance for contractors ... overtime on full rate ...
job locations - pre-employment drug testing ... and lots of contractors looking for old friends.
Free Email Address - This service is free, as long as you keep your membership current.
Restrictions: Any single document (either sent or received) cannot exceed 500K in size; the total
amount of space allotted to any member is 5 megabytes. You may select your own personal email
address. We suggest using your name (Example: JohnDoe@members.cjhunter.com).
Mail Forwarding - Members can have a continual (or forwarding) address to guarantee yourself of
constantly receiving your mail, wherever and whenever you relocate. There is a small monthly charge
and postage cost. If you are interested in using this service, contact our office for details.

The above services allow Premium Members to know exactly who has your resume at all times. The
suite also provides niche access to ONLY contract firms seeking to fill positions. We do not
pretend to be all things to all people. We simply have strived to be the best contract employment
niche site possible. Most of our contract firms have been advertising their openings with us for 10
to 20 years. And some like Belcan, Butler, Yoh, Dineen, VOLT, PDS, and Foster are at or nearing
their 40+ year mark. Granted, the industry has changed considerably during these decades and our
advertising contract firms have changed right along with the industry. Whether you are IT, marine,
nuclear, aerospace, industrial, automotive, or pharmaceutical, you will find various con- tract
firms filling their openings through ContractJobHunter. Remember that a contract staffing firm can
have requirements anywhere most any time.
To maintain the best advantage in seeking contract work, use ContractJobHunter on a regular basis.
Most importantly, keep your resume current at all times. The contract industry functions on
immediacy. Contract positions can become available when client companies get behind in schedules,
are considering expanding or developing new products, and even trying out new employees before
offering them direct employment. Job openings are often available and not openly advertised
because contract firms go directly to our Hot Sheet or resume databases, contact our members, and
hire them without ever needing to post that assignment.
We also pride ourselves in always having a live person who can immediately handle every phone call
during office hours from 7:30 am to 4 pm Monday through Friday (Pacific Time Zone). Job postings,
of course, can also be done at any time and memberships are always activated immediately online.
