How Job Alerts on Email help Jobseekers?

by SN2to1KM on May 22, 2015



Want to get notified by a job opening immediately when it comes up? Want to keep yourself updated with the openings posted while you are on the go or from anywhere across the nation? Email job alerts introduced by the job portals apprise the user with the matching job that is specially carved out for their profile. The job alerts aid in providing each jobseeker an exclusive list of jobs based on their profile and the resume posted on the portal. The sync is done based on the information provided in your resume taking into account the parameters like experience, salary, preferred location and functional area. These email job alerts allows you to explore your options without logging into your job portal.

You need to keep few pointers in your mind to understand your job search alert better:

Job alerts will not give you the exhaustive list: Job alerts will mail you the jobs that are having latest requirement and are posted in the last two to three days, according to your profile. However, the mailer will have the link to the page consisting of all the recommended jobs for your profile.

Only the last profile created is used: In case you have created multiple profiles with your job search engine, generally, the one created last is taken into consideration while searching and buzzing you with the latest jobs. Remember to update your profile regularly if you have changed jobs, or build experience or have got any new certifications. These modifications in your profile will give you the leverage of having relevant jobs.

Try to cull a specific functional role or area: Every job portal has limited number of functional roles and areas tailor made from which you need to select the best one. If you choose you functional role or area as “Others” then the job search engine will not decipher where actually you belong.

Job alerts tally your job profile using a matching logic analyzing your resume heading, key skills or designation. If you find your job alerts are not of any significance to you then you should consider doing the following:

1. Continuously update your profile: Information relating to any recent job change, any certifications you have completed and any skills acquired should be updated into your job profile. Any professional event that can increase the chance of your hiring should be mentioned and updated to get relevant job alerts.

2. Add your current professional skills or Remove the skills that are irrelevant: There are specific areas in your profile that requires your key skill to be added. Mention the relevant skills in the relevant areas to increase your chances of getting relevant jobs. Many skills that you may have acquired might go outdated or irrelevant considering the job you are looking for. It is better to remove these skills from your profile so that you can go an inch closer to your desired job. This goes for your header and role as well. Craft your header nicely that helps you to get spotted for your right job.

3. Mention your preferred location: While evaluating the probability of getting jobs, location is an important factor that influences your decision. To allow job alerts to find the right job for you mention your desired location. Then openings from the specific location will flow in to your mailbox.

4. Describe your roles and designation: Keep your role and designation as specific as possible. Try to be descriptive when it comes to your designation. Keep it succinct and to the point. For instance, if you are an Assistant Manager working in the HR department then it would be better if you mention, “Assistant Manager- HR”. The appropriate department or role helps you in bagging the right list of jobs.

5. Remove any ambiguous information: It is better to remove all the redundant information that has the possibility of creating confusion for the job alert. Due to the presence of these ambiguous facts and data you may miss out on the relevant jobs posted. Review and edit the information that will save your profile from being misinterpreted.

Hence job alerts has made it easier for the job seekers to find the current jobs within a minimum time span. Fill up an elementary form and you are just few buzzes away from the significant jobs.
