Job Center FAQs


What is Reach Hire?

Reach  Hire is a job board initiative of the Calgary Chamber of Voluntary  Organizations, offering a job centre for paid  positions in the nonprofit sector. Unfortunately, we cannot accommodate RFP’s and  volunteer positions at this time. To find a volunteer position, please visit Volunteer Calgary’s website.

How long are positions posted?

All postings are automatically posted for 30 days.

What is the cost for job seekers?

There is no cost for job seekers - the site is free to review and apply for jobs.

What do I need to apply for a job?

Before you start your job application process, please make sure that you have your resume and an optional cover letter. You can log in to apply, which gives you the option to save your resume and cover letter for future applications, or you can apply with your name, email address, and an uploaded resume.

 When I paste text into the Resume or Cover Letter field, all of the formatting is different. How do I fix this?

Not all formatting is  recognized by all programs. An easy way to eliminate  this from happening  is to first copy and paste your resume and cover letter  text into a plain text  program such as Notepad (this is found under  Accessories from the Start  button in Windows). Then, copy and paste  your text from Notepad into the description fields. There may still  be minor edits, but these can be  completed using the provided simple  formatting tools.

I’ve forgotten my password and/or username; can you help?
