Searching for a new job can often be a daunting, stressful, time-consuming activity, however with Zoek it needn’t be! By activating ‘Zoek Alerts’ email notifications, that work in synergy with our intelligent job matching technology, your job search and application process will instantly become quicker, simpler and more efficient.
So, what exactly are Zoek Alerts?
Our Zoek Alerts are automated emails and push notifications of any relevant, live job matches advertised on Zoek’s job board. They are based on your ‘saved search’ criteria, including key skills and desired job title. This ensures you never miss a job opportunity, that’s well matched for you, keeping you updated with the most relevant roles matching your criteria.
Zoek Job Alerts are useful for a number of reasons and can be helpful for almost any job search. More specifically, they allow you to easily check for job openings in your field without having to constantly mine through every job search engine.
In particular, job alerts can be very helpful when you are passively job searching. For example, if you are currently employed, and cannot leave your job right away, you can find new job openings without putting in a lot of time and effort. Email alerts will save you from having to check job boards continuously, trawling through hundreds of roles in the hope of finding one that’s relevant to you. To get the most from your job hunt, follow our top tips below on how to use Zoek Alerts effectively.
How to set up Zoek Alerts
To set up and activate your Zoek Alerts, start by registering or logging in to your Zoek job seekers account. If you’re registering for the first time, complete the candidate registration form and enter your desired job title. Enter your key skills and click register. Then go to your profile communication settings and ensure ‘Job Alerts’ is selected. Choose your preferred email frequency, whether that’s daily, weekly or monthly, and click save.
If you want to receive job alerts from additional job searches, simply conduct a search and click ‘save search’ at the top of the page. Now you are all set up! You can edit your saved searches at any time by accessing the ‘my searches’ section of your profile. Don’t forget to check your inbox regularly to view and apply to matching jobs roles.
Top Tips for Zoek Alert Success
To avoid getting irrelevant job matches, be as specific as you can when setting up each one. Try to fill out information on job type, location, and more. However, if the emails you are receiving, aren’t matching what you’re looking for, revise the settings of the job alert. Finally, think about frequency. Zoek Alerts allow you to choose how often you receive email updates and push notifications. Therefore, think about how often you can realistically read these emails. For instance, as an active job seeker, you may want daily or weekly updates. Whereas, if you are not actively job searching, it may be best to consider either weekly or monthly updates.
