Searching for the perfect job can seem like a full-time job in itself, and with the abundance of career platforms out there, it’s hard to harness the power of online job searching if you don’t really know how and where to start.
But luckily here at Adzuna, we list all your options in one place, so you don’t have to bounce back and forth through dozens of different sites. With our range of smart tools, you can easily optimise your job search and land that dream job. Here are our best tools you can start using today:
1. Advanced Search
Because you’re not about to settle for any old job, it’s important that you drill down your ideal job requirements. Looking for employment within a specific salary range? Perhaps you have your mind set on working for a certain company. Or maybe you need to find contract positions instead of permanent employment. Our advanced search puts the power back in your hands. Instead of having to sift through 7,594 job positions under the keyword “admin”, you can add “admin assistant” to the “matching this exact phrase” search field. This narrows down the figures to just 244 vacancies. Or you could search for “senior admin assistant” located in Gauteng, and you’ll get eight jobs on offer (at time of writing!)
2. Category Filters
After an initial search, you can refine the results to help you find your ideal job. Just use the category filters that appear on the left-hand side of the search results. Let’s say you’re looking for a developer job, but you want something in the recruitment sector. You can click on the HR/Recruitment link on the left-hand side. Getting the results you need is really just a click away.
3. Email Alerts
There isn’t a job seeker out there that’s able to scour job listings 24/7 as they wait for the perfect opportunity to pop up. And that’s where Adzuna’s email alerts come in handy. Once you sign up to receive email alerts, you can manage them by creating or deleting them as needed. Creating an email alert directly from a job search is effortless. You can also include the advanced search tool in your email alert so you’ll be notified as soon as the job of your dreams enters the scene.
4. Adzuna Mobile App
Our app works on Android and iOS and makes it easier than ever to search for great jobs on the go. Spotted a role that really sparks your interest? Save it and apply for it later. Once you have some time to straighten up your CV, you can apply for the job you saved.
