Job Alert -get the inside track advantage!
What exactly is a JobInventory Job Alert?
Simply put, a Job Alert is an email letting you know about any new job opportunities in your specified industry and location. JobInventory allows you to create your own customized Job Alert quickly and easily. Once your alert is created we will send you an e-mail when new entries (or even a single entry) are added to the top search results for the specific search term you ask JobInventory to monitor. Whether you are an active job seeker, who currently needs employment, or a passive one, just trying to stay in the loop, Job Alerts are sure to be a critical aid to your success.
What are the advantages of creating a Job Alert?
When you create a Job Alert you receive emails, daily or weekly, letting you know as soon as any new jobs match your criteria. This is great because it allows you to apply for jobs as soon as they are indexed – making it more likely employers will notice you, and with a little luck, you may even get the job before others even know it’s been posted! Job Alerts can also save you valuable time by delivering matches directly to your inbox, saving you countless hours everyday manually searching for those jobs.
Okay, I’m sold! How do I set one up then?
It’s actually pretty easy! All you need to do is start here on our Home Page by doing a job search for whatever job it is you’re looking for. Be precise with your terms, double check spelling, and feel free to include a location -although you don’t have to. For example, you might be searching for Nursing jobs in Seattle, WA, or maybe Retail jobs in New York City. No matter what job it is you’re searching for, once you arrive at the search results page you will always see at the top of that page our setup Job Alert box.
In that box all you need to do is simply enter the email address you would like your alerts to be sent to, and then hit the blue “Alert” button…and that’s it -your alerts are on their way!
Is there any way to fine tune my alert preferences?
Of course, that’s what makes our JobInventory alerts so powerful. Once you get the initial setup of your alert done then you can easily modify and shape your alert to suit your needs. At the top of each Job Alert email you receive you will find a clickable link that will allow you to edit your alert preferences.
Clicking that link will bring you to a page where you can adjust your keywords, location distance, or daily versus weekly preferences.
Is there anything else I need to know?
Well, the only other thing I would mention is that you may just want to add the email address email@example.com to your safe senders list. This way there’s no chance of any of your alerts winding up in your Spam box. Oh, and once you find that perfect job, remember you can cancel your alert simply by clicking on the “cancel” link contained within the alert email itself.
Happy Job Hunting!
