Description: This is an article about indeed login, which shows you 4 ways to use indeed job search effectively. You can use the indeed job search engine to help you land a new job. Try these 4 ways out and see how they work for you.
I want to show you my favorite online job board resource. That is indeed.com. I’m sure you’ve probably discovered it on your own, but maybe you haven’t understood the power that it has. It is one of the most powerful tools because it’s a job board aggregate meaning that it goes out and grabs positions from a company job board, small niche websites and local job boards, it takes everything into one place.
Everything has its faults, I won’t go into that, but I have found it to be very useful, there are a couple of things you need to check out, if you haven’t dug into down toward the bottom, I definitely would encourage you to look at the tools section.
I won’t go into all the different tools, there are Firefox plugin, a Google toolbar button, something for a Facebook job search, email job alerts and all kinds of neat little tools that can be helpful and effective for you, there’s also a forum section, as long as you don’t waste a lot of time, forum section can definitely be helpful.
You can get in here and look according to company, type of job, city or different areas, you can learn a lot about the inside parts of a company and find out how people are treated behind closed doors, but let me show you where the magic begins.
Once you do a basic search for your city and the type of position you’re searching after, the first thing you can do is at the top to click on get new jobs for the search by email, you can stick in your email there, hit that button, it will email you on a daily basis all the new positions that they found that meet your criteria.
It’s what I use every morning, when I first get into the office, that’s what I check, there might be 24 new positions found and I will peruse through there, remember as a recruiter I want to stay on top of what’s going on out there, but I don’t want to waste a lot of time on the job board.
It’s another way for me to see what new position is provided in the industry that I serve, if you look at one position, click on the more button, this may be an area that you’ve never explored before, I would definitely encourage you to do so.
You can look by contacts for this company on Facebook and LinkedIn, this is important, only about 20% of the people find their jobs on the online job boards, most of the time it’s through networking, you can use the power of the internet with networking to get more results.
You could find people that you know on either Facebook or LinkedIn that might be with that particular company, it’s important because I can’t tell you how many times I’ve had a position on recruiting and the company was also advertising for that position on a job board, I would call up a candidate and say I found a job for you.
They would say I saw that job as well and I applied, but I have not heard anything, I would hang up the phone, call the hiring manager who’s the decision maker and ask them if they have seen a resume for so-and-so, because the candidates said they sent their resume to the hiring manager, they’re the ideal candidates.
I’m so surprised, you can call it if it gets lost on a black hole, this is what I have found to be proven to be true, nine times out of ten when you apply to a position online, it’s going to be thrown into HR, sometimes with someone making $13 an hour who’s in charge of doing the screening.
What’s worse is even if they are HR professionals, they may not have the background that you have and they may not forward it on, because they don’t have a solid grasp on it, I wish that all of them were efficient and effective at getting the resume in the correct place, but they’re not, so sometimes networking is better.
