Two Ways to Get Hired!

getbadged provides you the maximum opportunities to get hired! Passing the entry exam and meeting minimum requirements qualifies you as a pre-vetted, Eligible Candidate for Hire in our database. This means you're eligible to apply to department job opportunities and receive badge requests from Premium Department Members, signaling their interest in hiring you.

How do Badge Requests work? Premium Departments can access our pool of vetted candidates. They review candidate credentials without seeing personal information like contact details or age, gender and ethnicity, until a badge request is accepted.

  • When a candidate's qualifications align with their hiring criteria, the department sends a Badge Request.

  • Badged candidates will be notified via email and on their dashboard. Getting badged signals the department's interest in pursuing you for their job(s).

  • Interested candidates can "Accept" the request, granting permission to share their application, all managed through their Dashboard.

  • Upon acceptance, the department is notified and gains access to the candidate's application and supporting documents for further consideration.

  • With getbadged's unique, innovative Badge Request technology, you can pursue job opportunities of interest to you, and departments can pursue you for their available positions.
