Brand new player here and I've searched for this on the forums and tried to find it in the help but there isn't anything specific on which buttons to press or how to actually get a job. I've found the Jobs screen and selected the Job Center tab. I see a list of Vacancies but I can't figure out how to apply for one. I can select one but the only button I see, Place Advert, is grayed out and does nothing when I press it.
Sorry if this is a stupid question but I really can not figure this out and would appreciate any help.
thank you for your replies. I've checked the club page for one of the listed positions but I can't seem to find an Apply for Job button on the main page, squad page, staff page but I'm sure I'm just missing it. I'll also try the holiday trick as well. Thanks all for any info.
If you go to the job security page you will have a list of all the teams and managers and how secure their jobs are. All the available jobs should be at the top of this list. If you see a job you want to apply for you can just right click the team and on your popup list click on apply for job.
depending what you selected as "past experience" can also hinder your job search, or should i say getting hired, depending on what leagues you picked at the start, for example if you only picked the top leagues in Europe then there is less chance teams will take you on as a manager if you picked Sunday League player for experience and you might also find it harder to attract players at top clubs, the players already at those clubs will find it even harder to motivate themselves for you than normal etc.
i'm using the default skin on fm2015. i started unemployed but am unable to apply for any jobs. i go to job centre and cant apply, go to job security and find the clickon drop down boxes saying something like 'declare interest in job' and 'apply for job' but both are greyed out.
i have tried playing on full screen and windowed in case it was an issue of a button missing due to being cropped by wondow size (long shot) and I have tried forwarding a week or waiting til matchday is over etc and applying at different times in the week in case some functions are disbled at certain points (i.e. if a game is on) but still nothing. always greyed out. its the same for all clubs, big teams or brazilian lower league teams so not a reputation thing.
what am i doing wrong? i cant believe its an oversight in the game, i must be being stupid somehow? (i would imagine such a huge bug would have been remedied months ago)
worked it out. there was a tickable box hidden deep in a menu somewhere which said only to manage international teams. god knows why someone would want that but there you go. unticked it and jobs appear. hooray!
must say i don't like the skins, menu setups these days. labyrinthine and exceptionally counter-intuitive. awkward even to view a different league.
