Following its highly successful launch last year, industry job site Jobla has launched Job Alerts, allowing your dream job to come to you.
Almost everyone is familiar with the concept of a Job Alert, in which seekers can select criteria such as Classification, Work Type, Location, Salary etc and jobs matching those criteria are emailed to you. The convenience and time saving provided by this functionality has been further enhanced with the evolution of mobile computing. Now you can review your latest job matches anywhere that you can read your email, for example, on your mobile phone on the bus on the way to and from work.
Most commonly Job Alerts are associated with actively looking for a new job and as such aren’t utilised by those that don’t consider themselves, active job seekers.
Jobla’s general manager, Paul Humberstone recently participated in a panel discussion event focussed on event -industry recruitment and staff retention. The event, organised by the International Special Events Society (ISES) Sydney Chapter was held at the recently re-opened Museum of Contemporary Art, Sydney.
ISES Australasian Chair, Jennifer Trethewey called Jobla a “Great way for all of us to keep track, see who is about and what is about across the country,” she said. “It also is an excellent tool for students about to leave University or TAFE.”
Truth be told, almost all of us are open to new opportunities, should the right one be presented. Creating a Job Alert means that you will never miss an opportunity when it arises, if you’ll only consider moving for your dream job, be specific when you create your alert.
In the meantime, until your dream job arises, you can use your Job Alert to keep an eye on the current salaries on offer for someone in your position, have more information to negotiate your next salary increase.
Job Alerts can also be useful tools for employers, enabling you to stay abreast of industry hiring trends and track demand for specific types of jobs, know the current market salary rates or to simply monitor your own job adverts.
