Let Your Computer Do the Work: How to Find the Latest Job Notifications

Posted September 26, 2013

There are so many job boards and websites dedicated to job hunters on the Internet, it’s no wonder that looking for a new job can be a full-time job in itself. After all, you don’t want to miss anything. But if you’re spending too many hours in front of the computer looking for the latest and greatest openings, it’s time to let the computer do the job for you!


One of the easiest ways to keep up with job openings in your field or in your area is to sign up for automatic alerts. You can sign up with most of the major job boards to receive emails that will alert you to new job opportunities in your specified industry and location. You can input relevant keywords to narrow your search, or have every new job listing sent your way. Job Alerts save you time by allowing you to see new job opportunities in your inbox instead of trying to manually search for jobs every day.


Niche sites offer similar options. Ambassador Personnel, for example, allows you to sign up for our blog and job alerts through RSS feeds., which includes freshly posted jobs as well as news headlines and career advice. Look for sites or blogs that specialize in your industry and see whether they offer free job alerts.


If you’ve been on Twitter, you may know that many companies now have a Twitter presence, where they often share links to their latest job openings. However, Twitter veterans know how easy it can be to get sucked into the site for too long if you have to read your entire feed every time you check.


If you’ve targeted a particular company, always go to their site to check for new job postings—and see if they give you the option of signing up for an alert.


And if you’re in the Southeast, or looking for a job here, be sure to sign up for job alerts from Ambassador! We are proud to work with some of the best companies and the best people in the South!
