Installing JerimothTo begin searching for jobs, following the quick and easy steps below.
Step 1: Create an account
Step 2: Install the client application
- Download the client application here.
- Unzip the file you downloaded, which will create a folder named "jerimoth". You can unzip it to any convenient directory.
- Modify the paths in run.bat to reflect the location of your JVM. In most cases, only the value of JAVA_HOME will need to be set
Step 3: Running the application
- Double-click run.bat. The application should start.
- If the application does not start, adjust run.bat as necessary.
- If it still won't start, please send logs/jerimothlog.txt to abuse [at] tolstoy [dot] com with any other relevant information.
- In the login screen, enter the username and password from Step 1.
Step 4:The application consists of a main control panel which opens independent windows. The main control panel is shown to the right (click for a larger picture). The main control panel is divided into six sections. These will be described in more detail on other pages, but here's an overview:
- Perform Search: choosing a saved search from the list and clicking the button brings up a list of search results.
- Edit Searches: lets you create, edit, and delete search parameters. When a new search is created, it will
be added to the list of saved search parameters in both this section and the
Perform Searchsection. In practice, you'd use this section to create searches like 'PHP in Pittsburgh' or 'Java in Jacksonville'. Then, you'd use the preceding section to search for current listings.
- Profiles: lets you create edit, and delete
profiles. A profile is basically a resume with additional information. You can have multiple profiles, for instance to emphasize different sets of skills. Those offering jobs would generally not use this section.
- Postings: lets you create, edit, and delete job postings. Those seeking jobs would generally not use this section.
- Submissions: lets you view the status of jobs you've applied for. As with the Postings section, those offering jobs would generally not use this section.
- Applicants: lets you view the profiles of those who've applied for jobs you've posted. As with the Postings section, those seeking jobs would generally not use this section.
