Introduction to opportunities

When you are submitting your information and applying to an opportunity, you are expressing your interest in filling a specific role for the client, but is not guarantee of assignment. This could be anything from joining their network of talent for future opportunities to a specific set of skills they need right now. 

It is important to read the description thoroughly so you understand what to expect.


Types of job opening opportunities:

  • Invitation only
  • Public facing postings


Invitation only opportunities will be sent directly to you via email notification or shared link. If you receive an email, be sure to review the opportunity in your dashboard and respond accordingly. You can also find these invitations in the Marketplace tab of your dashboard.



Public facing postings are available for talent to find and express their interest in without a direct invitation. If you are a current talent, you can find these postings by clicking the Job Board page in your Marketplace tab.
