Job hunting can be frustrating, especially when you are not sure where to start. This process becomes even more daunting when you have to log on several job sites every day and start doing the search afresh each time. Apart from being frustrating, it is also time-consuming. Instead of spending all your time searching, you can easily spend that time learning how to improve your CV or sharpen your interviewing skills.

This frees up your time, such that you can now focus on improving your CV, skills, and interview skills.

Here is why how alerts can save you time;

1. Relevant Job Alerts In Your Inbox

You see, sifting through numerous jobs on job sites can be draining because there are many jobs that are not relevant to you.

To make things easier for yourself, create job alerts on BrighterMonday, then sit tight and let us do the hard work for you. With alerts, you receive regular updates of jobs that you are qualified for, straight to your inbox.

2. Customise Your Alerts

Customisation is key as it will ensure that the job alerts you receive closely match your qualifications. When creating alerts, you use specifications that are aligned to the kind of job you are looking for, based on your qualifications. This ensures that you only get alerts that match the kind of job you are looking for and you can get to apply for them quickly.

Obviously, you want to create alerts to make things easier for you in your job search. Just like companies, outsourcing some job functions saves you time and money.
