Tell us about yourself.

Here's how it works:

Build a profile.
In your profile, detail your educational history, prior work experience, personality traits and desired area of work.
First
Tell us about you. List your school, major and GPA, just like on a resume. Include your skills: any languages you speak, work experiences or extracurriculars that set you apart.
Next
Go deeper. Show off your personality and work style. Or link to your profiles on LinkedIn or Facebook. Let employers see the real you.
Then
Set your criteria. What kind of company do you want to connect with? Large or small? Public, private or nonprofit? We'll make matches based on what matters to you most.
See your matches.
1stGig’s built-­in algorithm uses the information that employers and candidates provide to match the appropriate candidates with the companies and job openings that fit both parties best.
First
We compare. 1stGig.com only delivers perfect matches, based on the criteria and details in each member profile. That way you get exactly what you're looking for.
Next
You update and tweak. We make it simple for members to change their profiles. Too many matches? Not enough? Widen or narrow your match criteria to see different results.
Then
We send alerts. Texts or emails? Weekly updates or a message for every match? You decide. Luckily, setting up your notification preferences is fast and easy.
Accept or decline the match.
Candidates can accept their matches to being contact with employers, or decline matches that do not interest them.
First
Review your match. We'll send you a link to their company profile, so you can start learning about your match's mission, culture and opportunities right away.
Next
Accept or decline the connection. Remember: you can see them, but they can't see you. Not until you say yes, anyway. So you can review, accept and decline without consequences.
Then
Make contact. Once accepted, matches will have access to your profile and contact information. But it's up to you to reach out first. Each company will tell you how to get connected. Make sure you mention 1stGig.com when you do!
Your future is waiting.
