Whenever a recruiter posts a job with us, we want to connect our members as quickly as possible. So we look through our whole directory of members, including you, to find those best fit for the job.
And then we send that job, real-time, via an e-mail hiring alert, to a select group of professionals like you.
Well, on average, about 125 of you, which results in 3 to 4 applications for each job.
We’ll send the job to fewer or more professionals depending on what the computer tells us, but the goal is to get about 3 to 4 of you who might not have seen the job, and might potentially be the right fit, to apply. That’s our target based on our conversations with recruiters about what makes the most sense for them.
So when you see something like this in your Inbox (or in “Activity” on our website or app)…
…you’ll know that it’s a job hot off the presses, and that, if you decide to apply, the magic of modern computer science can let you feel comfortable that you’re one of just a handful of professionals who feel equally excited about it.
The match, by the way, is based on the information you’ve given us, so the great thing is, the more info you give us, the better we can target you with jobs. Update your profile here to let us understand you better.
Again, these alerts are sent out in real-time when a recruiter posts a job. The early bird gets the worm, so you should take advantage of this personalized heads-up about a new job opportunity.
