Job seekers should be using -  Canada's busiest job site - with consistently the top Google hits for jobs. 

How does Indeed do it?  The company is primarily a job aggregator - Indeed has a program that searches the internet for jobs and posts them on their site.  kind of like stealing but companies don't mind at all since this increases their recruitment efforts.  Then capitalizing on that trend, Indeed charges companies for features, just like Kijiji, to make the job advertisement stay on top of the page and to rank higher in searches base on keywords.

But for a job seeker, there are better ways than just going to the homepage once and a while and entering in search words...

Here are 2 simple tips for better use of

Tip #1 -
Use the Advanced Job Search function

Look under the Blue Button Find Jobs.  See in grey the words Advanced Job Search.  Click on that set of words and voila

Refining your search can yield much better results.

Tip #2
Use the Send me new jobs function.

Once you have an advanced search that gives you some jobs you like, on the top right of the screen should be a gray box Get new jobs for this search by email.

When new jobs match, you get a daily email with the list.  You can then be sure not to miss a job and don't have to actively be searching.  Great to research who is hiring, salaries, what experiences employers are seeking.  But even better to be able to be one of the first ones to know about the job.
