Applying for a job on Job Mail: What you need to know

We’ve made some changes to our application process on Job Mail that you need to be aware of.

These changes apply to both registered and non-registered jobseekers.

As usual, when you browse our site and find a job that you would like to apply
for, complete the form on the left hand-side of the ad details page and click
“Apply for this Job”.

What will happen now is:

Non-registered users – Will see a pop-up window with a registration form.
You need to be registered to be able to apply for a job on Job Mail.  Complete
the registration form and click “Submit”. You will then see a message saying
“You have successfully applied for this job”.

Registered users – with a fully completed CV will see a popup window with a Login screen. You will only be able to apply for a job once you have logged into your Job Mail account. When you’ve done this, you will see a message saying “You have successfully applied for this job”.

If your CV is incomplete, however, you will still need to login to your account after clicking “Apply for this job”. Only this time you will be notified that your CV is incomplete and given an opportunity to complete any missing information to give yourself a proper chance at landing the job. This is not compulsory, as you can skip this step, but we strongly recommend you do complete your CV before applying.

    Its more than two month i am applying but no answers

    • job-admin says:

      Hi Velephi – If haven’t receive a response from a recruiter, try to follow up with them. Some of them get 100’s of applications a day, you have to take this into account. If you don’t get a response from a recruiter after 14 days, you can assume that you did not get the job. The key is to be pro-active when it comes to job hunting!

  4. Thebeetsile Moeng says:

    Hi there is been 2 years now without anything i keep on getting job alerts but nothing happen and I apply almost everyday.

    • job-admin says:

      Hi Thebeetsile – Thanks for your feedback. It’s best to follow up with the employer / recruiter once you’ve applied for a position. If you don’t get response from a recruiter / company within 14 days you can assume that you did not get the position. You should remember that you some companies / recruiters handle hundreds of applications daily. The key is to be pro-active! Don’t give up on your job hunt though! Hope you find the job that you need soon!

      Hi there. Thanks for your question. Policies regarding the employment of foreigners differ from company to company. You are more than welcome to apply, but whether you get appointed or not, depends totally on their policy. Good luck!

    Iam a disabled uses a wheelchair and i have been following job mail since 2011 and i applied to every advertised posts in Accounts Department but it seemed as if we disabled do not have much depth on jobmail because oftenly its hardly to find a post written disabled to apply. As a prominent prestigious partner with employers may you kindly negotiate with them to take account of Disabled because we are only physical disabled but we are capable of anything as far as academics are concerned.HELP US JOB MAIL PLEASE.
