Has anyone on here tried Hired for UX design positions? How did it work?
I've been trying it for Creative Director or Design Lead positions...no luck so far....
Tried before. The response I received was "We don’t have enough opportunities that match your role and location preferences — yet."
My location preferences were pretty open so I took that to mean they didn't have a lot of UX gigs.
On the other hand, it could have just been their version of a nice rejection.
Yeah I had the same experience. I do know that Hired is quite expensive for employers to signup for, so it is only going to be populated with the big guys.
I did a cycle with them a year ago, received one request from a startup in town (LA) but that was it.
I've tried them but it seems they have very few design positions available. Haven't gotten any offers yet.
I got my current job through Hired.com last year. After I got an offer, I claimed the Hired bonus and they sent me the bonus within 2 weeks. Sweet! They sent me a care package -- a bottle of champagne, T-shirt, stickers, mug, etc. During Christmas time, they sent me a beanie hat and holiday card even though my profile wasn't active anymore. Oh, over the summer, they sent me a card with Summer knick-knacks. I love the way they keep in touch with their previous users.
Tried them, in Paris for 2 rounds, and got nearly 10 Job offers, experience was quite nice, a "recruiter" is kinda assign to you and follows up on whatever is happening between you and companies.
