How long does it take to set-up my gust.network account?
Less than a minute. You can import your basic information from your LinkedIn account.
What do I need to do?
Sign-up with gust.network in seconds and start receiving offers. It is that simple.
What information is included on my profile?
Your profile is divided into a public and a private section. The public profile includes your skills, qualifications, experience, desired roles, etc. Everything a recruiter needs to know to assess your fit with a job. Your private profile consists of your contact information and a detailed CV.
Do I have to pay for anything?
No, gust.network is completely free. Even better: you own, control and monetize your data. Therefor, we don’t have access to your profile and data. We call it “privacy by design”. The result: We will not and cannot sell your data or bombard you with advertisement.
Then how do you make money?
Companies can subscribe to use our premium sourcing tool with optional applicant tracking system, and we offer additional convenience features for companies. All services are free for candidates.
Do I really get money for joining?
Kind of. You receive tokens from interested recruiters who would like to contact you. Recruiters are always able to see the anonymous, public section of your profile. In case they are interested, they request to access your private profile (i.e., contact information, CV, etc.) in exchange for tokens and you decide whether you grant permission. On online exchange platforms, the tokens will be convertible into your currency soon.
A recruiter requested access to my private profile. What now?
You decide whether the recruiter may access your private profile based on the job information provided regarding salary, location, position, etc. The recruiter will then evaluate your detailed CV and consider sending you an interview invitation.
How do I recommend a friend and what do I get in return?
Simply send your friend a referral-link (Options>Referral) and receive tokens as a reward.
Can companies see my personal information without me approving?
No! They can only see your anonymous, public profile. They have to ask you for permission to access your personal information. Thus you may share your next career goals and aspirations without your employer and colleagues noticing.
I am currently employed and must give notice before leaving, can I include this information in my profile?
You can include your earliest start date in your profile. Companies offer you interview invites with this in mind. In fact, you can state any information in your profile that you regard as important, such as salary expectations, location, company size or job type.
I am currently employed and don’t want my company to see me, can I hide my profile?
Your public profile is by default anonymous. Your company can only see you if you decide to give your company access to your private profile.
I am currently a student but will soon graduate. When should I create a profile?
You can sign up to gust.network at any time. In fact, you can even start right away to give recruiters access to your profile. As soon as you update your profile, they will be notified that you are open for new positions. Instead of applying for a job and losing connection to your favorite employers after rejection, you can keep your profile shared and stay on the radar for future possibilities. Any company you have applied for during your studies will know about your career and academic progress and may offer you new opportunities. That is what we call a convenient job search.
Can I apply to companies on gust.network?
Yes and no. gust.network is a professional identity network. However, you can apply on any job board or career platform with just one click by pressing the “apply with gust”-button on job descriptions of companies that use gust.network.
What is the “apply with gust”-button?
The “apply with gust”-button gives recruiters access to your public and private profile. That means you can apply with only one click. No need to upload your CV or fill out a new profile.
Can companies search for my profile in the gust.network?
Yes, but only your anonymous, public profile. Here you can decide who may contact you. If the company is not interesting for you, located in the wrong geography, or simply does not pay enough, they cannot contact you.
What if I would like to stop receiving opportunities?
You can define in your profile that nobody may contact you. It is your identity - you can decide.
