Save time with Resume Alerts

If you are looking to hire a candidate with specific skills the Resume Alert service is a great addition to your search tools. Resume Alerts allows you to save a search so we can check it each night and send you any new resumes that match your criteria.

There are two ways to set up Resume Alerts:

1) Do a regular resume search, and just above the search results you will see a link to "create a resume alert". This will take you to a page which shows your resume alert, and press the "Add Alert" to confirm.

2) Log in to Jobvertise and click on "Resume Alerts". This will bring you to a blank form where you can add your keywords, locations, etc. Once you fill out the information click "Add Alert"

Every night we will cross-check your settings with new resumes that are entered in our database. If there is a match we will send you an e-mail so you can click on the resume to proceed.

Please note that it is free to setup this service and receive the alerts. However, since the resume has just been entered at the time of the e-mail it is under 21 days old so it requires a premium membership to view.

New Readable Captcha for the Jobvertise Login Page

Probably the number one comment we received from employers over the past few months was related to the CAPTCHA on the login page. Typing the letters and numbers in the image is necessary to prevent unwanted automated logins to our system.

The CAPTCHA image was provided by a third party, and over time it became more and more unreadable. Also, there were characters appearing that would not be easily typed, such as mathematical symbols. This issue became increasingly frustrating for employers who just wanted to log in and view resumes and post jobs.

We upgraded the CAPTCHA image which balances our need for security and minimizes effort on the employers part. You will note that there are now only 5 letters/numbers to type, and they are easily readable in comparison to the old version.

You can see this new CAPTCHA at the Jobvertise employer login.
