This article describes how to create a Job Scout. This allows you to get the
most current job list whenever your Job Scout runs.
A Job Scout is a Saved Job Search which you set up to run automatically at specified
intervals. You must have an email address in your WorkSource registration in order
to create a job scout. As scheduled, the scout will automatically scan the available
jobs and send to your email address a list of jobs that meet your criteria. You
may create up to 5 different Job Scouts. You may edit or delete your WorkSource
Job Scout at any time.
After logging in to your account, click on the Scouts/Saved Searches tab.
Click Create New Scout or Saved Search button.
Under Select Location, select the area(s) you are willing to work. This will
help narrow your search.
Under Select Job Type, select the occupational category(s) that best reflects
the work you are seeking. You may select more than one category. To select more
than one category, hold down the CTRL key while selecting.
Under Keywords, enter a word(s) that would likely be found in the description
or title of a job for which you would be qualified. Example: Web Design. This
will help focus your search. You may specify how the keyword is searched by selecting
ALL words, ANY words, or As a PHRASE.
Under Format Options, select how many results you would like per page. The options
are 25, 50, 100 and 250.
Select how you like your results be sorted, by relevance or date.
Under Name This Saved Search, enter a title for your saved search to identify
it from others you may create.
Select Yes, to create a Job Scout for this Saved Search and pick a day of the week and frequency to run your Job Scout.
Click Create Saved Search button. You will be redirected to the My Saved Searches
page. Your Saved Search and Job Scout are complete.
