Job Seeker FAQ

1. How is closers.com different from the other job sites where I can search and apply to jobs?

Closers.com is a niche job board that connects high-calibre remote sales professionals to job opportunities worldwide. Unlike generic job boards, our primary focus is to attract only employers that are looking for inside sales representatives, inside sales managers, sales representatives, account executives and similar job titles. The employers will be able to save time in their talent search and spend more time growing their business.

 

2. What types of jobs will be on this job board?

We anticipate a wide range of remote sales jobs from various B2C and B2B industries to be posted by employers on closers.com.  These would include inside sales representatives, inside sales managers, sales representatives, account executives and similar job titles. 

 

3. How much does it cost for me to register?

It is free for all job seekers to register. There will be no charge to keep your profile/resume on closers.com. 

 

4. Are employers vetted?

Employers will be vetted before they are allowed to post jobs on the job board.  

We intend to perform these steps:

  1. Look up the Employer on Glassdoor.com  for reviews made by current and former employees.
  2. Look up the Employer on LinkedIn for company reviews and LinkedIn profiles of current and former employees. We may reach out to some of them.
  3. Use Google Search to find news and blog articles about the organization and its senior management team members.

If our online checking reveals that some former employees felt that they were taken advantage of financially,  or if the Employer is in some kind of financial trouble, we would not approve them to post jobs on the job board.       

Note.  We will vet potential employers as best as we possibly can. But there is no guarantee.  The ultimate decision has to be made by the job seeker. We ask that the job seeker uses his discretion.
