Job Search Engine Tips and Suggestions from Indeed.com

We came across this article from our Alumni Career Services office and wanted to share it as we found it was full of some great information.

Alison Doyle, from About.com, got to spend some time time talking with Indeed.com’s co-founder and CEO, Paul Forster, about online job searching and how to get the best results when using a job search engine.

Paul suggests that, “Job seekers narrow their search as much as possible in order to find jobs that fit their experience, skills, and desired location.” He goes on to say that it makes sense to “Focus on finding exactly the right jobs, rather than taking a scattered approach to job searching.”

In the article, Alison goes on to suggest tips to help you focus your job search to generate listings that match your criteria, including how to save time with job search engines, job searching by salary, using advanced search techniques and more. Read the full article¬† to learn about all of Alison’s tip.
