Create a Job Alert to help candidates set up automatic monitoring for new jobs. When you post a job that matches their filters, SmartRecruiters will notify them by email.


SmartRecruiters' Job Alerts widget allows you to engage potential candidates even if they don’t see the job they're looking for at your company. Candidates can personalize a Job Alert for key terms in the job's title. When you post a job that matches, SmartRecruiters will send an email to candidates to let them know. 

You can a Job Alerts widget as a button on any webpage using a pre-generated HTML and JavaScript code snippet. Though you won't need assistance to create the widget, you may need assistance from technical resources to add the snippet to your site.
