After applying online, how can I get in touch with a hiring manager or recruiter?

What happens to my application once I’ve applied?

If I need to update my profile information e.g. email address, change password, etc., do I have to create a new account?
A: No, that’s not necessary. Just log in to your existing account and change your email in the personal information section. Changing it here will also change the address you use to log in. Please don’t create multiple log-in accounts—it could delay your consideration for the perfect job!
What if I try to apply but get an error message?
A: Please report the problem right away on our Contact page. Make sure to list the requisition number.
Can you provide an overview of your hiring process?
A: Sure! While some specifics may vary by location, brand, or position, here is the general path you will follow when searching for a career at eBay Inc.
Start by looking for a position that matches your skills, qualifications, and interests.
Once something sparks your interest click “Apply to job” and follow the login and submission instructions. If you don’t already have an account, you can create one as part of this process.
Submit your information for review.
If your skills and experience appear to match an open position, a recruiter may contact you to discuss your background and the position, and advise you about what to expect in the interview process.
Your first interview will likely be a phone conversation with the hiring manager. If it seems that you are a good match for the position, then you will be invited to a job interview.
At the job interview, you will most likely meet with several interviewers. Before you leave, it's a good idea to inquire about next steps and if there is a timeframe for making a decision.
Due to the high volume of résumés we receive, we cannot contact each person who submits their résumé for consideration. If you are not selected, your résumé will remain in our database.
Can I submit a resume for general consideration if there is not a specific job in which I am interested?
A: Yes, just register on the site or log-in if you have a profile and submit your resume. You can either attach it as a file (recommended) or cut and paste it in the appropriate text field. If there is a match for a future position, you will be contacted by an eBay Inc. recruiter. We encourage you to continue to look and apply to specific jobs as this is the most efficient way to find the perfect match for you!
