How do I create and save my searches and alerts?

If you're always searching for the same jobs, it's much easier for you to set up a saved search. This will help you find the results faster, and save you time from having to enter the job search criteria each time you visit our website.

If you want these results to be emailed to you once a day, you can set up a job alert. For this example, we'll set up a saved search and alert for a job listing.

Here's how:

1. Log into your CharityVillage account.

2. Once you are logged in, select Jobs at the top of our homepage or click Find Jobs from your My Desk.

You can do a Quick Search, Advanced Search or Browse. For this example we'll use the Quick Search function.

However, if you want to set more specific criteria for your search alert, select the Advanced Search button.

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 under Search Alerts.
