Description: This is a tutorial on indeed login covering some advanced features of the Indeed.com job search engine. It’s designed to help you perform your online job search more efficiently and easily.
My name is Tom Hanlon. This article describes how to streamline your job search using the indeed job search engine. The tips here should make your job search easier and more productive.If you’re not already familiar with indeed, it’s www.indeed.com.
It’s a great job search engine consolidator, it pulls jobs from thousands of company sites and from the major job boards, you don’t have to go individually to monster and Careerbuilder, the jobs from all those boards are brought into indeed, it’s a nice one-stop shop.
On the opening screen, I’ve typed curriculum into the what field and 01720 into the where field, you could put your city, state or zip code, note that there are eight hundred thirty nine thousand jobs, these are new jobs in the last seven days being displayed, this is a very powerful site.
Let’s go to find jobs, you scroll over a little bit, we have eleven hundred and forty five jobs, the list is a little long, let’s use it the advanced job search link, put the word curriculum in as a general keyword for the search.
The problem is that any job description that includes the word curriculum will be displayed in the resulting list, by moving the word up to the title we can ensure that only jobs with curriculum as part of the title will be displayed in a place where I think it’s not as appropriate as being in the title.
We’re going into the title field and press the find key, we’ve narrowed the list down to twenty-seven jobs, let’s go back to the advanced search link and try a couple of other parameters, for location let’s choose fifty miles, for age we choose fifteen days, for salary I’ll put in 50K, now we have eleven jobs.
It’s a much better list, we’ve narrowed things down a lot, we found jobs that fit our specifications, one other tip is that you can put a negative operator, so the manager job no longer appears, we have eliminated that term from the title.
These are some of the ways to improve the efficiency of your job search, experiment yourself and find ways to continue to tune and refine the search so that the engine works most efficiently for you.
Let’s take a look at another option, this is the more option, it allows you to view all the jobs at the company, to see the salaries for the job, also to find contacts at LinkedIn or Facebook for networking and to research the company via Google.
Below each job description there’s a link called more, if we click on the link, we’ll see that there are several other links that provide more information, it’s a nice way to get more information about either the job or the company.
For example we could view all the jobs from Pegasystems, we could look at the salary for this job, let’s take a look at the salary, curriculum developer jobs in Cambridge Massachusetts are estimated to pay eighty thousand dollars.
There are other options, you could find more information about Pegasystems or forums about Pegasystems in this case Cambridge Massachusetts, you can research the company on Google or Bing, find contacts on Facebook or LinkedIn, look at a map of Cambridge MA or create a permanent link to this job.
Here are some more resources that are very valuable, LinkedIn.com is a social networking site for professionals, it is a very good way to do networking, reference USA is a database of companies, you can use it to find target companies based on your location, your industry and so forth, it’s available through local libraries.
Hoovers.com is available, directly you can get brief information about a company, for example headcount revenue brief description, onesource is another very comprehensive database but not as easy to find, it might be available for your library or perhaps through your place of employment or your school.
I hope that these tips have been helpful. Thanks for reading. My name is Tom Hanlon and I’m available at tomhanlon.net.
