Job Alerts

How do I get notified if a job becomes available? How do I create a Job Alert?

If you would like to be notified by email whenever jobs that match your criteria become available you can create a Job Alert. A Job Alert will email you on a daily or weekly basis with any new matches to your search.

To create a Job Alert you should first perform a job search. Click on the "Get new jobs for this search by email" link at the top of the results page. Enter your email address and click the "Save Alert" button. You will then be sent a confirmation email containing a link you must click to activate your alert.

After your alert is activated you will receive your first email within 24 hours.

How do I confirm my Job Alerts?

In every Job Alert confirmation email there is a link that reads, "Click here to verify your job alert". Clicking on this link will automatically confirm your alert. You should start receiving alerts within 24 hours. If your email software does not display this link you will see directions to copy and paste a url (http://...) in your web browser.

How do I stop my Job Alerts?

Click the "Cancel" link at the end of every Job Alert email.

My alert is not giving me the jobs I want. How do I edit my Job Alert?

Click on the "Edit" link at the top of the alert email to change your search. Edit the keywords in the 'What' box and/or the location in the 'Where' box and click on Update to save your changes.

Why aren't I receiving my Job Alert emails?

  • Job Alert emails are only sent when new jobs that match your search are found. You can edit your Job Alert to get better results.
  • Be sure that you have 'alert@indeed.com' as a safe sender for any spam blocking software.
  • Check your spam, junk, or deleted folders. Job Alert emails may have been moved automatically.

I accidentally canceled my Job Alert. How do I recreate it?

My Job Alerts only show me 20 results. How do I see the rest of them?

Indeed Job Alerts are capped at 20 results per notification. When you click the 'all matching results' link you are taken to our website, which shows all matches for your searches, both old and new.

If you sort the search results by date the first matching results will be the new jobs mentioned in the email.
