How to – Google Alerts


How to use Google to search for jobs even when you can’t.

Ask Google To Search For Anything

And let you know when it finds something new. Any search term, multiple search terms, emails as soon as something is found or a daily digest. You can even get the results delivered via rss.

So How Does It Work

Or more correctly how do you set up an account? Well first of all you are going to need a Google Account.

Now You Have Your Account

You can now sign in. This is what you will see.

Enter Your Search Term(s)

In this case "Cardiff" and "Job".  Then click on Create Alert.

The Show Options Drop Down

Setup for a once a day email notification. You can also have the deliveries via rss to your feed reader.

And The Alert Is Now Set Up

Click on the Gear Icon.

The Gear Icon Gives You This

Click The Boxes and Click Save.

Here Is The Email

You will notice that the top two results although they have the Keywords in them, are not vacancy related. You may visit to create multiple variations of your search to counter act this.
