Jobs via Email - My experience with Job Alerts

Two weeks ago, I’ve set up job alerts on 10 different job boards and job search engines (my review about this you can read here ). Wanted I have after the job title “Content Marketing” in Austria. And now I describe to you my experience with it:

Jobs via Email – My experience with Job Alerts

10. careesma

Received emails: 7
Total jobs: 10
jobs are not always relevant (eg employees for programming or fundraising)
Sends only email when there are new jobs: Yes
jobs appear already in Email: Yes

My conclusion:
I do not prefer less frequent emails to obtain and less jobs for fitting(eg karriere.at ). I would also almost always get only jobs sent that I have not yet seen . And I see the Jobs also like to have right in the email . So I can call them individually and assess whether me anything interesting and what it actually interested me. For the job title “Content Marketing” and my criteria mentioned I can best monster , karriere.at ,metajob , jobs.at or careerjet recommend .

Have you ever tried Job Alerts? What experiences have you done with it? Any recommendations?
