Automated job searches to find work faster
WASHINGTON, D.C. -- Now that summer is fast approaching and many of you might soon be looking for employment, we wanted to share one of our favorite tech tricks with you; automated job searching. It's a super simple technique that will hopefully help you spend less time job searching and more time actually applying to jobs you're interested in.
However, before we dive in and get started, there are a few things you should know. For starters, this method isn't guaranteed to get you a job; it's merely a way to be alerted faster when jobs that meet your search criteria are listed online. This way, you'll be able to prioritize your time more effectively and get an application in faster.
No matter how you shake it, this is a good idea. It only takes a few minutes to set up, and once you're done, you'll never have to actively browse through job listings to find what you're looking for. Instead, they'll come to you, and you'll get a notification the instant that a relevant job listing is posted online. There are many companies online that will allow you to set up alerts. First enter the person, company, or job title you want to keep tabs on as the search query. The company will send you an email when there are new results for your search, so you can stay ahead of the competition and make yourself look pretty sharp to prospective employers.
