How do I create and save my email searches and alerts?

If you're always searching for the same things (e.g. great communication jobs in Moosonee or fundraising runs in Halifax), set up a saved search to find new results faster. Even better, set up an email alert to hear about new results daily. For this example, we'll set up a saved search and alert for a job listing. Here's how:

After you log in, you will be directed to the home page where you can either enter your search criteria or click on Advanced Search for more browsing options.You can also click on Find Jobs in the Alerts, Applications and Reports menu from the MyDesk area.

From MyDesk, you can do a Quick Search, Advanced Search or Browse. For this example we'll use the Quick Search function. Enter your criteria and click Search.

Like the results? Save the search by clicking the Save Search button at the top of the page. If the search results are too broad (wow - 500!) or narrow (sorry, no listings match), click the New Search button and change your search settings.

A pop-up window will appear. Review the search criteria and if everything looks correct, enter a name for your saved search in the text field.

The alert defaults to Email Results Daily. If you would rather not receive the alerts by email, simply uncheck the box beside Email Results Daily.

When you're good to go, click on Save Search. The search alert will be saved to your MyDesk.

That's all there is to it! Still have questions? Call our HelpDesk at 1-800-610-8134 or email
