A job alert is an email. It means you request to be emailed when Seniors@work has a new job that you might be interested in — based on keywords, location, categories and/or job type. You can choose to receive these emails daily, weekly, or monthly; and you will only receive them if new jobs are posted on Seniors@work. You can create as many job alerts as you wish, and unsubscribe at any time.
There are three simple ways:
Open your email program on your computer, find a job alert email, and click unsubscribe.
NOTE: If you haven’t set any criteria, the Current Search will not show.
Once you’ve searched jobs and clicked on an individual job, the details of that job will be displayed.
Well done! That’s all you need to do. Once you've applied, the employer can contact you and take it from there.
The next section is a bit different, and answers FAQs about managing your account.
For all your account information, go to My Account. From here, you can view and edit your profiles, saved jobs, job applications, and account settings.
You can create, view, edit, and delete your online profiles from your account. First click My Account, then click on the profile you wish to view, edit or delete. To create a new profile, see step 2: "Create an online profile."
If you like the look of a job or two, but you’re not ready to apply to them yet, you can save them and come back to view them later. It's completely private — employers will not be notified of your interest.
There are two ways:
You can unsave jobs in the same way, and you can save and unsave jobs as many times as you wish.
To view more details about a job, click on it's blue title.
To apply to a job, click on it's blue title and then click "apply now".
To unsave a job, click the "unsave" button on it.
The job could have expired, or the employer could have removed it from Seniors@work.
