Are you thinking about a job switch? Are you rummaging through job portals and earmarking newspapers? Dear reader, you are going about it all wrong. You need to look at a smarter way of keeping track of open positions in organizations that you aspire to work in.
In November 2020 Bureau of Labor Statistics claimed that the average amount of time to find a job is 24 weeks. That’s a lot of time, and it must be well spent on searching for the right job, not sifting through endless web pages with sub-par filtering capabilities.
A web monitor is a smart tool that can keep track of hundreds of web pages, in your case- job portals and career sections of websites. It will notify you when job profiles are updated, salary figures are changed, and help you get the most accurate and current data posted by an organization. Job data extraction and tracking come with a lot of perks.
Well, the list goes on and on. By now you’ve realized that web monitors are a trusted ally when it comes to the daunting task of job hunting.
Subscribing to career portal notifications may make sense, but are you ready to sift through your cluttered mailbox? It is not tailored to your career checklist, you don’t want to end up with a laundry list of emails sent out to thousands of applicants every day. You should choose a customized approach that minimizes the time you spend on shortlisting jobs.
