Q. How do I use Osprey Careers?
A. Well you have two options on how to find a job using the Osprey
Careers service. You can do a quick search for jobs by typing in the key words
(usually the job type or title that you are looking for) and selecting a city to
search in and click the search button. All of this is found on the main page of
the Osprey Careers site. Your second option is to create an account and register
with the Osprey Careers site.
Q. I'm an employer, how do I get an access code?
A. The access code is issued to a person or company that places an advertisement
for help wanted in certain Osprey Media newspapers. The access code will be issued
to you when you place your ad. You can then use your access code to set up your Osprey
Careers Employer account. Locate an Osprey Newspaper near you.
Q. Why would I want to create an account?
A. If you create an account with us, you will be able to do much more

can even attach your resume to the message), keep a clipboard of possible job
prospects, and you can even create Job Alerts which will notify you of jobs that
match your search criteria.
