I received some comments on my latest article on me being a temp warehouser packer on how to create job listing alerts. They were curious about how I created the daily alerts for “ad hoc jobs” to my email. This will be a short article for those who want to create their own alerts.
Google – Job Listings Consolidator
Google has a beta function that existed for quite some time that consolidates job listings from different platforms. Companies tend to post their openings on multiple platforms to increase their reach. This function is able to combine job listings from various platforms so that they don’t appear as multiple listings. An alert can also be made to be sent to your email for keywords that you are interested in. You will also be able to create alerts for any keywords besides job listings.
Please see the steps below to create alerts for job listings.
Step 1 – Search
Search for “ad hoc jobs” or any keywords with “jobs” in the term
Step 2 – Click On More Jobs
You will be able to see 3 shortlisted jobs on top of the usual search results. You would want to click on the “more jobs” button to get to the page to create the alert.
Step 3 – Create Filters
I personally don’t create any filters for the job alerts. But if you want to only receive alerts from specific categories or employers, you will be able to do so under the various filters at the top.
Step 4 – Create Job Alert
At the bottom left of the screen, you can turn on the alerts for whatever search term you were searching for. On mobile, this button is at the top instead.
Make sure you are logged into the Google account that you want to receive the email alerts.
Step 5 – Manage Alerts
On the top of the screen, you will be able to select the “Alerts” tab. You will be able to edit the frequency of the email alerts. You will receive a separate email for every alert you created.
Step 6 – Email Alerts
Here is an example of the email alert that you will receive.
You will be able to create daily job listing alerts using Google with just a few steps. You will also be able to create filters so that the alerts received will be more precise.
