What exactly is your 'Shortlist' and how can it help you find the perfect job?

If you've ever looked at the Your World Healthcare homepage or viewed a job advert on our website, you'll notice something referring to your 'Shortlist'. 

Chances are, you've seen it multiple times without even realising what it does!

So, what does the Shortlist do?

It's actually a very handy tool that allows job-seekers to collate all the jobs they like the look of into one place, so you can revisit them at a later time.

We created the Shortlist to save you time (because finding enough of it to read through dozens of potential jobs can be challenging to say the least) and make discovering your next role easy as pie. 

How do you create a Shortlist?

You'll be pleased to know that it couldn't be easier! Just click on a job advert that grabs your attention and, should you want to view it again later, click the 'Add to Shortlist' button at the bottom of the advert.

It looks like this:

Use the Add to Shortlist button to save Your World jobs for later

The job will be added to your personal shortlist, so you can read or apply later. Simple, huh? 

Where can you find your Shortlist?

No matter what part of our website you happen to be browsing, you'll always find the same green banner at the top, which has a button that looks like this:


Access your jobs shortlist by clicking the My Shortlist button


Click this button and you'll be able to see every job you've saved while browsing.*

Apply for every job in your shortlist at the same time!

Instead of having to click 'apply' for every job you like the look of, wouldn't it be nice if you could just apply for all of them in one quick, easy action? 

Bet you know where this is going...yep, you can do exactly that in your Shortlist! Forget trawling through every job - we've made bulk applications super-duper simple. All you need to do is double check you still like the jobs you've added and then fill out one short form.

Bob's your uncle! You've applied for them all in less time than it takes to make a cuppa (trust us, we've checked). 

Sit back and relax

Now you've done the 'hard' part, all you need to do is sit back, relax and wait for a member of the Your World Team to get in touch and discuss your applications. 

In the meantime, why not stay ahead of the game and check out our CV, cover letter and interview tips? Studies show that people who prepare for job interviews in advance are much more likely to land the job. After all, you never get a second chance to make a first impression.

*Something to note:

Your Shortlist will only remain available while your browser is open. If you close your window, a new session will be started and your Shortlist will reset. If you're using this handy tool, make sure to keep your browser open!

So, what are you waiting for? Get browsing and start your own Shortlist now!
