How does a cardholder accept an employment or association request?

Before accepting an employment or association request, cardholders must have a myRIW profile, which is the online portal for RIW cardholders.  Please refer to our article on How does a cardholder create a myRIW profile? for further instructions.


An employment request is a request from a company to manage a cardholders RIW profile in the RIW System. Employers have full access and edit rights to this profile. An association request means a company has view only rights to your RIW profile, but can add Employer, National and Network based competencies to your profile if required.

Step 1

When a company requests employment or association, the cardholder will receive an email asking them to accept the offer in myRIW. The cardholder must accept the request in order to continue the on-boarding process. The email will look similar to the following.

Step 2

Log into myRIW at

If the cardholder has not created a myRIW account previously, click on the Create Account button to register and follow the prompts, including setting a password and accepting the Permission Access Agreement.

If the cardholder already has a myRIW account, log in with the RIW number and password.  

Click the Forgotten Password hyperlink and follow the instructions if the cardholder has forgotten their password.

Step 3

Once logged in, the myRIW dashboard will display. Select the Employers and Associations button.

Step 4

Any pending employment or association requests will be show on this screen. Cardholders can approve or reject any pending employment and association requests.

To accept the employment or association request, click on the Accept button. 

To reject the employment or association request, click on the Reject button.
