Using RSS feeds

RSS feeds are a good way to get job updates sent directly to you, based on your search criteria. Look for the orange symbol on web pages or in your Browser, or use a free RSS service such as Feed43 to create feeds from pages without them.

If you’re struggling to find relevant feeds, try Instant RSS Search. You can search by topic, website (or a combination of the two). e.g. you can search for ‘accountancy site:indeed.co.uk’.

You will need a feed reader to view your job updates. You could try Feedly or NewsBlur or Inoreader online. Or there are personal dashboards like Netvibes. You could even use your browser, such as Firefox and IE7 (and above). Another option would be to use a site like Blogtrottr to email your feed results to you.
