FAQ

What can I do on the site?

What is jobtrees.com?

Jobtrees.com offers users information about roles and careers that go beyond the traditional job board sites by showing interconnections between roles based on data, not opinions. By leveraging data, our unique approach allows us to present a number of different ways the user can choose to discover what potential careers are out there as well as the path to get there. 80% of Americans are dissatisfied with their jobs. Jobstrees.com is here to inspire and provide pathways for change.

How do I find new jobs on jobtrees?

A part of finding the right job or role is knowing it exists. You can use the search function to search for any job by name or education. To help you find unique roles you never knew existed or potentially remind you of ones you forgot, we offer several different ways for exploring roles in the Find a New Role section of the site.

How do I find my career path?

Jobtrees.com is a tool that displays real career data by showing interconnections between roles. We aim to show you the potential future (branches) of a role as well as the most common ways (roots) to get there. Simply type in a role into the search bar and begin to explore the pathways before you. You have the ability to customize and save your search results. If you are not sure which career pathway to search for today, start by exploring new roles with the Find a New Role function.

How does the site work?

What is a Jobtree and how does it work?

A Jobtree is a visual representation of the most common role steps to and from a central role or starting point. It shows you the most common career path to and from any given role in our career database. Each step away from the central role is specific to the steps taken prior, meaning that the career path shown is an exact path that others have taken. Each Jobtree is unique. If you see a role that looks interesting branching off from the central role, move it to the center and see how the information changes.

Why do I see the same role in the Jobtree both leading to and progressing from the central role?

The Jobtree is built based on the aggregation of career profiles and so this is a result of people’s careers not following a linear path of role title progression. Also, titles aren’t used synonymously at all companies so that the responsibilities, scope, or rank for a title at one company may be different at another so what may look like a downgrade in title is actually a career progression.

How does the Time in Role calculation work because I see the value changes depending on what the central role is or filter I selected?

Each Jobtree is unique. The calculation for TIme in Role is done specifically for the data set for each Jobtree which causes the time in role to change. For example, the Jobtree for Data Analyst and Senior Data Scientist both have Data Scientist in their job history with a different time in role listed. This is because the people that had the position of Data Scientist prior to becoming a Data Analyst are not the same exact set of people who had the position of Data Scientist and became a Senior Data Scientist.

What is the source of Jobtrees's data?

It is the aggregation of publicly available career profiles covering hundreds of thousands of career steps spanning thousands of unique roles across many industries, schools, education backgrounds and companies. With your help we can expand this data source further by uploading your career profile which will allow you to track the roles from your job history while navigating the site and this will also help contribute to creating a more robust experience for you and other users. In order to unlock a new role or filter for a role, we need a minimum amount of data to ensure the data stays anonymous and the paths are representative of a meaningful enough sample. This means the data you provide helps to open up more features for you and other users.

What happens if I sign up?

Does it cost anything to join or use the site?

There is no cost to join the site and currently all our content is at no cost to our users. We have some enhanced features we are developing which will end up being available as part of a premium membership for a minimal fee. We do encourage you to upload your career profile which we will use to aggregate with our current data set as well as other users to create a richer product experience for you.

How do I access all the features on the site?

You can access all features once you have created an account and are signed in. Having an account will give you the ability to customize your account, save new roles, save trees, add career experience, and more.

If I share my career data with Jobtrees what will you do with it?

We will only use your career data to aggregate with other career profiles to power the products you use on the site. It will not be sold or used to create targeted advertising. If there is ever a change to this approach you will be asked to actively approve new usages of your career data.

I uploaded my career profile but I don’t see my roles on the site. What’s wrong?

Because we need a minimum number of roles to aggregate together before we show them on the site, it is likely that there aren’t enough other profiles to aggregate with yours yet to meet this threshold. This is an opportunity to encourage your colleagues with similar career profiles to add their data to the site to meet the aggregation threshold and unlock the Jobtree for that role.

Your Rights and Choices under CCPA

The CCPA provides Consumers with specific rights regarding their personal information, provided that we are able to verify their identities as explained in this section.

Access

You have the right to request that Jobtrees disclose certain information to you about our collection and use of your personal information over the past 12 months. Once we receive your request and verify your identity (see Exercising Your Rights), we will disclose to you:

  • The categories of personal information we collected about you
  • The categories of sources for the personal information we collected about you
  • Our business or commercial purpose for collecting or selling that personal information
  • The categories of third parties with whom we share that personal information
  • The specific pieces of personal information we collected about you (also called a data portability request).

Deletion Request Rights

You have the right to request that Jobtrees delete your personal information that we collected from you and retained, subject to certain exceptions. Once we receive your request and verify your identity (see Exercising Your Rights), we will delete (and direct our service providers to delete) your personal information from our records, unless an exception applies. We may deny your deletion request if retaining the information is necessary for us or our service provider(s) for certain reasons as permitted and set forth in the CCPA.

Exercising Your Rights

Only you, or a person registered with the California Secretary of State that you authorize to act on your behalf, may make a verifiable Consumer request related to your personal information.

An authorized agent is a natural person, or a business entity registered with the Secretary of State that a Consumer has authorized to act on his or her behalf. When a Consumer uses an authorized agent to submit a request to know or a request to delete, Jobtrees may require that the Consumer provide the authorized agent written permission to do so and verify their own identity directly with Jobtrees, unless the Consumer has provided the authorized agent with a valid power of attorney. Jobtrees may deny a request from an agent that does not submit proof that they have been authorized by the Consumer to act on his or her behalf.

To exercise the access, data portability, and deletion rights described above, please submit a verifiable Consumer request to us by either:

You may only make a verifiable Consumer request for access or data portability twice within a 12-month period. The verifiable Consumer request must:

  • Provide sufficient information that allows us to reasonably verify you are the person about whom we collected personal information or an authorized representative; and
  • Describe your request with sufficient detail that allows us to properly understand, evaluate, and respond to it.

We cannot respond to your request or provide you with personal information if we cannot verify your identity or authority to make the request and confirm the personal information relates to you.

Making a verifiable Consumer request does not require you to create an account with us. Please note that the methods for verification are set forth in the CCPA, which also requires us to consider a number of factors, such as type, sensitivity and value of the personal information or risk of harm posed by unauthorized access or deletion, on a case-by-case basis.

We will only use personal information provided in a verifiable Consumer request to verify the requestor’s identity or authority to make the request.

Response Timing and Format

We endeavor to respond to a verifiable Consumer request within forty-five (45) days of its receipt. If we require more time (up to 90 days), we will inform you of the reason and extension period in writing.

Any disclosures we provide will only cover the 12-month period preceding our receipt of the verifiable Consumer’s request. If applicable, our response we provide will also explain the reasons we cannot comply with a request.

We do not charge a fee to process or respond to your verifiable Consumer request unless it is excessive, repetitive, or manifestly unfounded. If we determine that the request warrants a fee, we will tell you why we made that decision and provide you with a cost estimate before completing your request.

Non-Discrimination

You may not be discriminated against because you exercise any of your rights under the CCPA.
