RSS Feeds to Locate Jobs
Using RSS Feeds To Locate Jobs
In addition to actually seeking
a job, there are also other valid reasons to monitor
the job market. Perhaps you are satisfied in your
current position, but just want to keep an eye
on new positions in a specific sector. Perhaps
you are just curious to know what the wages are
for similar positions. The job market can be monitored
quite easily using RSS feeds. You can subscribe
to RSS feeds in order to find specific company
job openings, employment available within a specific
region (i.e. by using a postal or zipcode), specific
positions available, or to locate all jobs within
a specific wage range.
The following are websites that
have RSS feeds to help employees looking for jobs...
