FAQs


Does Localwise cost money to use?

Localwise is currently free. We plan to charge businesses to post in the future. For now, if a business wants to be featured, then there is a charge. We do not plan to charge applicants.

Does Localwise help screen applicants for businesses?

No, the hiring decision is solely up to the employer.

Do applications go directly to the employer?

Yes! Completing an application on Localwise means your application will go directly to the employer’s inbox. It will also be accessible on Localwise’s website for employers to review.

Are jobs removed once they are filled?

We try our best to only post jobs that are still available. We remove job listings after (i) 30 days since the date posted (ii) an employer tells us they filled the position (be it by phone, email, or in person) (iii) an employer removes the listing directly. We also send weekly surveys to employers asking if they are still hiring. If we learn they are not, we remove the job post. As we said, we try our best!

Do I need to sign in to use Localwise?
