  • Why did I receive a RegionUP payment transaction failure email notification?

    If your payment did not go through on the scheduled renewal date of you subscription, you will receive an email notification.

    Some common reasons of payment transaction failure are:

    1. Your credit card has expired.
    2. There is no sufficient balance in your registered card when the system attempted the renewal of your subscription.
    3. There was a temporary connection problem with your bank during the process.
  • Why do I have to input my credit card details to take the 7-day Free Trial?

    Since RegionUP is a subscription-based service, a valid credit card is required in order to activate the free trial.

    There is an auto-renewal service in place whereby your premium membership will be auto-renewed based on your initial subscription plan. (Refer to our Terms of Use)

    If you activated a Free Trial, you will be charged a 30-day subscription plan subsequently right after your trial ends unless you turn OFF your auto-renewal setting.

    You can turn off your auto-renewal in Settings - Confirm Membership Information page.

  • I only signed up for a Free Trial but then why am I being charged?

    RegionUP is a recurring subscription service whereby your account will be automatically renewed right after your free trial or premium subscription expires.

    This is indicated in the Terms of Use that you agreed upon before confirming the activation of your subscription. This is also in the purchase confirmation pages as well as in the confirmation email sent to you.

    In the case of the Free Trial, your premium subscription will be auto-renewed every 30-days unless the auto-renewal setting is turned OFF.

  • What happens when my Free Trial expires?

    There is a recurring payment system in place which will automatically renew your premium subscription every 30-days after your Free Trial ends.

    The system will continue to auto-renew your subscription monthly and charge your card unless you turn off the auto-renewal setting in your account.

    If you do not wish to be charged and only wish to use the Free Trial, you must ensure that you turn off your auto-renewal setting at least one (1) day before your Free Trial ends.

  • How do I turn off my auto-renewal setting?

    If your auto-renewal setting is "ON", this means that the system will continue to automatically renew your premium membership based on your initial subscription plan and will continue to charge your card.

    Turning "OFF" this setting means that premium membership is only until the expiry date of your current subscription plan. There will no further charges to be incurred in your card after it expires and your account will be updated back to "Free Membership".

    To turn off auto-renewal go to Settings>>Confirm Membership Information page and click "Turn OFF" button.

    Note: An email notification will be sent to you confirming this action.

    Note: The auto-renewal option is only available to members who have signed up for either a free trial or Premium Membership.

  • I didn't know my premium subscription was auto-renewed and my card has been charged. I want a refund.

    Please note that information about the recurring subscription and charges are provided to you in the purchase page as well as in the payment confirmation page. An email notification was also sent to inform you about it including how to turn off the setting of the auto-renewal service.

    We do not provide refunds for premium membership as per our Terms of Use. However we suggest that:

    1. You continue to maximize your use of the premium membership until it expires.
    2. Ensure that you turn off your auto-renewal setting in your Settings - Confirm Membership Information page to avoid recurring charges.

    Your RegionUP resume comprises 3 parts: Basic Information, Free Format Resume, Job Preferences. To edit any of these, just click on the respective links and click on 'Edit' and subsequently 'Save' to update the respective sections in your resume.

  • I want to upload my MS Word or PDF file resume.


    1. Check the formatting of your resume texts and make the necessary adjustments before submitting.
    2. Remove any personally identifiable information in your Free Format Resume page. Otherwise it will be removed from your profile.

  • How public is my resume?

    Upon completion of your registration, your profile will become accessible for viewing only by the recruiters registered on the site. However your personal information i.e. name, email address, contact number will remain undisclosed except for the following scenarios:

    1. If you apply for jobs
    2. Reply or message or a recruiter
    3. If the recruiter really finds your profile suitable for a role and requests for your contact information directly.
  • I don't want my current employer to be able to view my profile. What should I do?

    No worries, we have already figured it out! We have a system in place that hides your profile from being searched by your current employer based on your employer name provided.

    Alternatively, under your "Latest Company Name" field you can also just state a generic company name. However do take note that by providing a generic name, your resume might be found based on keyword searches and if your profile matches the recruiter's search criteria.

    For example: Leading Manufacturing Firm or Renowned Financial Services MNC.

  • How do I hide my profile from being searched by recruiters or hiring managers?

    Before doing so, please note that when you hide your profile the following will happen:

    1. Your profile will no longer be searchable by recruiters or hiring managers
    2. Therefore recruiters or hiring managers will not be able to contact you for any possible job offers
    3. The only time recruiters or hiring managers will see your resume is when you apply to jobs or send them a message.

    If you really want to be "invisible", go to your Settings - Service Settings section and turn off the respective settings for Head Hunter and/or Direct Hiring Company.

  • I want to update my contact information.

    Update your contact information by clicking your name on the upper right part of your account and click on "Settings" then click on "Edit" button under Account Settings. Make sure that you "save" the changes.

  • My email address is already taken. What should I do?

    If you tried to register for a RegionUP account and was prompted that your email address is already taken, it's likely that you have already registered with us before.
