What is Job Alert?
Job Alert is a very simple
email job notification system. You create a profile and we email you links to jobs
that match your profile. Save yourself time by using Job Alert to feed you
relevant jobs automatically. Never miss that great job because you didn’t
search when it was posted.
To create a Job Alert you
must first signup. Our services are free to job seekers and paid by our member
employers. Please note that we respect
your privacy and will not sell your information to any third party except for
our member employers.

Job Alert uses a Boolean
search. You can choose four filter keywords and give values to those words in
the form of "LIKE" or NOT LIKE". Here is an example of how to
use Boolean keywords:
Imagine you're an electrical
engineer, but you do not want to receive alerts for a civil engineering or
mechanical engineering. For Filter 1 enter "LIKE engineer", Filter 2
enter "LIKE electrical"(this will send you matching results for
electrical engineer), for Filter 3 enter "NOT LIKE civil" and Filter
4 enter "NOT LIKE mechanical". This will block civil and mechanical
engineering jobs, but allow electrical engineer jobs.
Select an employment
category and city(s) then hit the submit info button.
