I am a big fan of the 80:20 principle and today I wanted to show you a way that you can take this principle and apply it to your job search on LinkedIn. Anything that can make your life easier and takes less time is always a good thing, Right?
I wanted to show you a way that you can automate some of your job searching on LinkedIn. In LinkedIn, you have the option to setup saved job searches which will email with the latest job postings on LinkedIn on a daily, weekly or monthly basis depending on what you want. To do this you will need a LinkedIn account and the rest shouldn’t take you any time at all.
Step 1: Search for jobs with the keywords you are interested in and that are in the area you are located in. As you can see above, when you are searching for a particular type of job there is the option to click “Save” and when you do this you see the following dialogue box appear…
Step 2: When you complete this information will add it to your saved job searches in LinkedIn and select the frequency you want to receive these job postings sent to the email associated to your LinkedIn account.
Step 3: The last thing that you need to do is check your email inbox and wait for the saved job search to find positions that match what you are looking for to arrive.
I hope that you enjoyed this tip on using LinkedIn in a more effective manner so that you don’t need to spend so much time searching for that next job online
