Setting up jobs by email

10/06/2013
Fircroft's website allows its registered users to sign up for jobs by email. These alerts allow you to keep up to date with jobs that you may be interested in by emailing updates of new roles as they are added to the site.

Instead of a speculative update of roles that you probably won't be interested in, these alerts are tailored to you and are based around the searches you conduct on Fircroft.com.

There are a couple of different ways of setting up your jobs by email, but they all start off in the same way.

It all starts when you sign in

To receive jobs by email you must be registered to the site and signed in (see our guide on How to Register ). If you are registering with the site for the first time, you can set up your job alert preferences as part of the registration process.

Signing up for alerts if you are already registered

The quickest way to set up jobs by email is by clicking the set up as a new job alert button at the top of your job search results page.

You will then be able to name your job search and save it. You will now receive a daily email alert when new jobs relating to your search are uploaded to the site.


My job alerts

From the My Fircroft screen you can manage the Job Alerts that you have saved as well as create new ones. You should have a job alert saved from when you registered with the site, based around the job preference settings you have entered and also from any searches you have previously saved. To enter a new one click the add new job search button.

On the next screen you are able to specify what you want your alerts to be targeted to. You must enter a location, sector and job type as well as naming your new search. Entering keywords allows you to target your emails even further so they are based around the words relating to the jobs you are looking for. In the example below I have set up the search as if I was looking for an automotive job, specifying that I would like it to be in Electrical Engineering.


Once you have entered the search details, tick the activate for email alerts box and click submit. Your alerts are now set up.
