Frequently Asked Questions

What is OneWire?

At OneWire, we are dedicated to creating a platform where finance professionals can confidentially connect with top industry employers.

In 2008, we founded OneWire with the goal to introduce the power and ease of technology into the finance recruitment space. Candidates on OneWire can actively apply to jobs, follow companies and advance their career with exclusive career-specific content.

Employers streamline the way they recruit, manage, and engage with talent by leveraging a community of over 380,000 active and passive candidates while maintaining institutional memory throughout the recruitment process through a self-refreshing CRM platform. We built OneWire to make it easier for candidates and employers to connect. Are you ready to make your next career move? Upload your resume to start your search today!

Who uses OneWire?

OneWire is a place for qualified candidates to directly connect with hiring employers.

Candidates – Individuals at all levels, from students to senior management, use OneWire to take control of their careers and get hired.

Employers – Hundreds of top financial services, consulting, insurance, accounting, and technology firms use OneWire to connect with talent across all levels. You can see a list of our clients here.

How is OneWire different from job boards and networking sites?

Job boards and networking sites are cluttered and noisy. Their job postings are frequently stale, and employers are quickly inundated with hundreds of applications, meaning that your resume winds up in a black hole. Don’t waste a lot of effort for little opportunity!

OneWire is more than a job board; we offer a wide variety of resources for you to advance your career in finance, whether you’re an active jobseeker or simply looking to develop professionally. As a member of the community, you can follow companies, apply to jobs, and be alerted of new opportunities all while maintaining complete control of your confidentiality and career preferences. All of our job postings are real opportunities from real employers and OneWire gives finance professionals the chance to connect with firms that might not be actively hiring by becoming a member of their talent community. Instead of sending in a one-time, single resume to an employer, which will quickly become outdated, you can update your resume at any time, and it will be reflected in your existing and previous applications. That way, employers will always be able to see your most current information.

Do I really have complete control over my confidentiality on OneWire?

Yes, your privacy settings are entirely dependent on your preferences. By default, when you create a profile you are visible to all companies except your current employer. You can also choose to remain private to all companies except for ones you either apply to or choose to follow. It’s also important to note that regardless of your privacy settings, your information will never be accessible via the Web. All your information is protected on OneWire, and only hiring employers can access it.

Why does OneWire require candidates to upload a resume?

In order to experience all OneWire has to offer, we encourage you to upload a resume. Once uploaded, you can apply to jobs with a single click. By keeping a resume on file, you will also become searchable to employers looking for your specific background, allowing you to take a passive approach if you’re not actively seeking a new opportunity. We also encourage you to update your resume on OneWire whenever you revise it. Every time you upload a new resume, the old resume will refresh itself in the employer’s Talent Community so that hiring managers can see your most up-to-date information. To manage which employers can see your resume, please see the question above.

How do I learn about new job opportunities I may be interested in?
If you want to be automatically notified about new jobs that match your search, you can set up Job Alerts to receive a weekly email with relevant opportunities. (Wondering how to change your Job Alert email settings? See below). Want instant alerts for new jobs being posted on OneWire? Join our premium members and get the Edge.
How do I set up a Job Alert?
There are three ways to create a job alert. First, you can click the tab labeled “Job Alerts” on your status bar. From there, you simply enter a title for the alert and a keyword for positions you want to be notified about. Another method is to start by typing keywords into the Find a Job search box, select some filters, and when you’re ready, save your search by clicking Create a Job Alert. Finally, you can create an alert based on a specific job you come across. You can create as many Job Alerts as you’d like.
I keep getting Job Alert emails, how can I control when I receive them?
You can manage the settings of your Job Alerts by clicking on the Job Alerts tab on your status bar. From there, you can add or remove Job Alerts as you see fit. Job Alerts are sent weekly with a basic candidate account. To receive alerts for jobs as soon as they are posted, sign up for the Edge.
Does OneWire charge candidates?

There is no cost for candidates to create a OneWire account, apply for jobs, participate in forums, or access exclusive career content. However, there is an option to upgrade to the OneWire Edge, a premium membership that offers you an advantage over other candidates at a low monthly cost.

What advantages does the Edge offer to candidates?
The Edge is an exclusive membership on OneWire that lets you stand out from the rest of the application pool. The Edge features include Instant Job Alerts, Competition Reports, and Profile View notifications. For more information on how you can get an edge over other candidates, click here.
What is a profile video and why should I add one?

A profile video is a feature that allows you to introduce yourself to employers and personalize your profile. After polling the companies that post on OneWire, 80% of them agreed that a profile video gives more information than just a resume. Memory is predominantly visual, so stand out from the crowd with a video on your profile!

What are forums? Who uses them?

The OneWire forums are a way for finance professionals to engage with their peers and recruitment experts in a professional, secure environment to ask career advice, make connections, and discuss current trends in the industry.

Do employers know if I follow their company?

Yes. When you follow a company, your resume is automatically submitted to the company’s Talent Community, indicating your interest in their firm. Every time you upload a new resume, the old resume will refresh itself in the employer’s Talent Community so that hiring managers can see your most up-to-date information.

What does my profile look like to employers?

Employers see a preview of your qualifications parsed from your resume and are able to access your actual resume by hitting ‘View Resume’. Here is a screenshot of a sample candidate:
