How do you set up a job alert

Hi everyone,

 

I am new on this platform but cannot find my way. I think one day I came across a page where I could set up a job alerts. Now I see that I don't have any and also cannot find this page any more. Anyone who can help with this?

Thanks!

Michela

Hi Michela,

 

You can configure your email notifications by going to your Settings > Notification Settings. Also, you can set up your Job Feed so you could receive job recommendations and set up an RSS feed to be notified about new jobs posted in your category.

Hi!

 

I have all notifications on and I don't receive any job alert. Can someone provide more specific instructions? I see these are from 2016.

 

Thanks,

Ana

Hi Usairem,

 

Have you find a way to get notifications or job postings?

 

Thanks,

Ana

I never got the notification immediately. Usually two-three days after the job posting. How can I get them immediately?

Hi Masahito,

 

In case you haven't done so already, you can set up an RSS feed to be notified about new jobs posted in your category.

Hello Members/Moderators/Managers,

 

Who am I:

I am an exclusive agency member

My browser:

MS Edge, Chrome

Problem Statement:

I fail to set up email alerts.

I would like to know what, if anything, I am missing.

 

Description:

I have specific job searches duly saved.

I review / edit them by (Find Work > Find Work > My Feeds > Settings > Edit Saved Searches).

 

I want to set up alerts…

  • moment someone posts a job fulfilling criteria indicated in my saved searches
  • I want an email alert
  • to the registered email address (set up in Upwork)
  • email will contain the URL to a job fulfilling criteria indicated in my saved searches

If between 9 & 10am, 11 jobs fulfill my search criteria, I expect to see 11 emails in my inbox.

 

What did I try:

1) I tried Settings > Notification Settings.

Didn’t look like that was the right method.

 

2) Then I tried all that is indicated in this thread.

The experience is attached for your reference.

Met dead-end.

 

Many thanks!

Best…

…Ash
