How to set up your job alert notifications

Setting up job alert notifications helps you get notified when jobs that best suit your skills and experience become available. Here’s how to do just that.

Register your profile

For you to be able to receive job alert notifications from any job site, you need to first register your profile or sign up with your email address. It’s best to register your profile so that once you’ve been notified of available jobs, you can apply with your profile instantly- where possible. Job portals like Indeed are a great place to start. Remember to click on the option to receive notifications and specify what kind of jobs you’re looking for and in which location.

Set notifications on LinkedIn

A LinkedIn profile helps potential employers find you based upon your skills and experience, so set up your LinkedIn profile if you haven’t done so already. You can then set up job alert notifications and receive notifications when jobs similar to your searches are advertised. There’s also an option you can choose that alerts recruiters that you’re open to work, so they can approach you with employment opportunities.

Check your emails frequently

Make sure that you frequently check the email you use for your alerts. It would be simpler if you use one email address every time you set up your job alerts from legitimate job portals. This’ll make it easier for you to keep track of all the notifications and apply on time.

Job alerts will help you stay on top of your game because you’ll receive notifications as soon as the jobs you’re looking for are advertised. Try your best to apply the moment you get a notification, before applications pile up or the job post expires.
