How does it work?
Switch iOS app is easy to set up, and super simple to use. Upload your profile in minutes, and review jobs Switch recommends based on your background and location - anonymously. Swipe right to "like" a job, and swipe left to pass. When a hiring manager of a job you liked is interested in you, Switch connects you directly via email or chat. That's it!
Can I get matched with my current employer?
Your privacy is our biggest concern. Switch will not show you jobs by your current employer - nor will they be able to see your profile.
Do you have an Android version?
Yes! Download it on the Google Play Storehere.
How can I edit my profile?
Open the Switch app. In the bottom navigation, tap'More' on the right-hand side. From there, tap'EDIT PROFILE' which appears in blue just below your name and photo. Once you're finished editing, tap'Done' in the top right-hand corner to save the changes.
How do I change my job preferences (location, job function)? Can I set up multiple locations or functions simultaneously?
Toggling between locations and industries is simple. Open the Switch app. Tap on the icon in the top right-hand corner of the app to reveal ourPreferences menu. Tap on the field you wish to change. For job functions, pick the one that most resembles the job you're looking for. For location, tap your current city to edit, then adjust your radius accordingly. You can also choose your Current Location, in which Switch will automatically show you jobs in your vicinity. When you are finished changing your preferences, click'Save' in the top right-hand corner to lock in the changes.
We currently do not support multiple locations or job functions. We are working to make this available soon. but that is something that will be available soon.
What if I'm not finding jobs relevant to my skills and experience?
When Switch launched, we specialized in tech- and media-related jobs. However, new employers from industries across the business spectrum are joining Switch every day. Please stay tuned and a job suitable for you should hit your Switch queue very soon!
Does Switch offer internships/part time work as well as full-time jobs?
Yes! We do offer internships and part-time positions, although the frequency and amount of those jobs is based on our employers' needs. Don't be discouraged! We will be adding a separate filter to support internships and part-time jobs soon, but in the meantime, try editing your profile to make it clear where you've been and where you're going. Our algorithm will account for your years experience and skills and match you with the most relevant jobs, be they internships, part-time work or full-time positions.
How do I communicate/message with employers who match with me?
There are two ways. The first is by email, the second through the app's chat function. Let's go through them both right now.
When a match occurs, a notification email delivered through our private email server hits your inbox immediately. Simply reply to this email to start a conversation with the employer. We suggest you add your resume and/or a link to your public LinkedIn url to provide the employer with the most information possible.
Open the app. In the bottom navigation, tap the'Message' tab. Tab the icon at the top right-hand side of your screen to see your available matches you want to message with, then choose one, introduce yourself and set up interviews.
What if I want to propose a new feature or solution?
This one's easy: Emailteam@switchapp.com. Constructive criticism is always welcome. We are continuously working to improve your experience with Switch and we find your feedback invaluable. Drop us a line with any feedback, or click here to give us your ideas.
I am seeing more junior or senior jobs in comparison to my years of experience?
We recently changed how we calculate years of experience. Instead of manually entering a total, you must enter the years of work experience corresponding to each of your previous jobs. Without doing so, you will not receive jobs that are a match.
Switch only matches you with the jobs that fit your profile - including years of experience, background, skills, and location. Verify that all your profile information is complete, accurate, and up-to-date.
I'd like to see other types of jobs. Can you help?
Sure! Go to your profile and check that the job function, the industry, and the headline you picked are complete, and in line with what you are interested in.
Also know that Switch is primarily focused on jobs in tech and media companies for now, but we are working on signing up more employers outside these industries - as we speak.
How do I change my notification preferences?
Open the app. In the bottom navigation, tap the'More' tab on the far right-hand side. On this page, tap'Account settings' in the middle of the page. Under the'Notifications' section, you can turn notifications -- likes from employers, new matches, and new jobs -- on or off using the buttons to the right of each. To control which emails you receive, tap the envelope icons; to control which mobile push notifications you receive, tap the telephone icons. Blue icons mean the notifications are ON; gray icons mean they are turned OFF. You can adjust these at any time.
Do you have jobs all over the US? In other countries?
Yes! We do have jobs all over the US, and in multiple countries as well.
How do I delete my account?
It's always sad to say goodbye, but if your time with Switch has come to an end, deleting your profile is simple. Open the app.
In the bottom navigation, tap 'More' on the far right-hand side. From this screen, tap 'Account settings' in the middle of the screen. At the bottom of the 'Account settings' page, you will see a 'Delete account' button. Click this, then press 'Yes' to confirm.
Tap the menu in the top left corner of the app. Select 'Settings'. At the bottom of the 'Settings' page, you will see a 'Delete account' button. Click this, then press 'Yes, delete account' to confirm.
