    • USING social networking IN your job search
      Presented by Anthony Furino
    • RSS Feeds
      What are RSS Feeds?
      Function like an online newspaper subscription
      You subscribe to a feed that is updated regularly. When the feed is updated you are automatically sent a link to, a portion of, or a complete piece of the information you signed up for; in this case you are sent job openings
    • RSS Feeds
      Quick Info
      To receive these feeds you have to have an RSS reader
      Free of charge, convenient, practically labor-free
      Useful for those people that have access to a computer regularly – can check an RSS reader for a listing of jobs instead of performing the same search over and over
      RSS Feeds work by collecting and gathering these feeds in one place so you can quickly retrieve them
    • RSS Feeds
      How to Subscribe
      Perform a search and then click an RSS Feed icon to subscribe to it
      Some sites, like Career Builder, may require you to go to a specific RSS Feeds portion of their site to choose to receive feeds on jobs in a certain industry, jobs by keyword, or jobs in a particular region of the country
    • Subscribing to RSS Feeds
      You can choose to display an RSS feed in your Internet Explorer or Mozilla Firefox browsers
      OR
      Copy and Paste the RSS feed URL into your own RSS Feed Reader to view
    • Subscribing to RSS Feeds
      Internet Explorer
      Click on the RSS feed link after you have performed the initial search
      The location of the RSS feed link/icon will vary between sites
      Click on the subscription link near the top of the page
    • Subscribing to RSS Feeds
      Name the feed and subscribe
    • Subscribing to RSS Feeds
      Mozilla Firefox
      Click on the RSS feed link after you have performed the initial search
      The location of the RSS feed link/icon will vary between sites
      To save in Firefox browser choose Live Bookmarks
    • Subscribing to RSS Feeds
      Name the feed and add to Bookmarks Menu
    • Subscribing to RSS Feeds
      If you choose to read RSS feeds with your own RSS reader then you must follow these steps:
      Perform a search on a job site
      Click on the RSS feed link
      Copy the URL when you are taken to a different page
      Paste the URL into your RSS Reader
    • RSS Feeds
      • RSS feeds may not always be easily visible – look on handout for locations of feeds on job search sites
      Different sites will design their feeds to display differently
      Meaning that when you receive these updated feeds there may be job title with a small job description linking to the full posting, or a full job posting for you to view, etc.
      Example

    • Job Notifications via E-mail
      Useful if you have internet access on your phone
      Functions similar to an RSS feed in that you are notified automatically, without performing a search, but you must check e-mail regularly

      CareerBuilder Job Alerts
      Twitter

    • Firefox Add-Ons for Job Seekers
      Firefox has add-ons, which, according to Firefox can be “… a new time-saving toolbar button, a shortcut to search, a themed look, and more. Add-ons make browsing easier.”
      Basically these act like the quick access Google search field on the top right side of the browser window
    • Firefox Add-Ons for Job Seekers
      To use these in Firefox go to Tools – Add-Ons – Get Add-Ons – perform a search for these add-ons below
      TwitterJobSearch.com - a job search engine for Twitter
      LinkedIn Companion – allows you to perform LinkedIn job searches, people searches, access to JobsInsider
      JobsInsider allows you to check your LinkedIn network to see if you are connected to anyone within the company that posted a specific job - if you are connected to someone on the inside you can contact hiring managers directly through LinkedIn
