Your job search can feel exhausting, especially right now. You may feel like there is no easy way to find jobs you are actually interested in. Alcamine can help! Alcamine narrows down your search, keeps your inbox clean of job spam, and only shows you the jobs you want to see in your personal Alcamine inbox. In addition, you will only get one email a week from Alcamine, showing you updates from your inbox on your latest job search.
Keep in mind, not all job boards are created equal when it comes to the job opportunities you might be looking for. Indeed has a nice clean UI and some features other boards don’t have such as company reviews. However, they don’t seem to have the best selection of tech jobs and Indeed is more broadly focused.
Below are some step-by-step instructions on how to connect Alcamine to Indeed, a frequently used site with a wide variety of jobs posted daily.
Once you have logged into your Alcamine account (don’t have one yet, click here to sign up!), find the tab along the top right labeled “Connect Boards.”
The more job boards you connect to, the more opportunities that will come your way!
Scroll down the page to the drop down labeled “Indeed.” Here you will find some helpful instructions on how to link your accounts. Already have an Indeed account that you use? Great, your next step will be an easy one.
I Already Have an Indeed Account
If you already have an Indeed account, head on over to Indeed and login. Once you’re in your account, hover over the profile icon in the top right hand corner.
Select “Account” from the dropdown. Here you will be able to change and update your email address associated with your account. Select “Change Email Address.”
This will take you to a new page where you can update your email address to your Alcamine address. Select “Save Email.” You’ve now successfully linked your Indeed account to your Alcamine inbox.
Don’t have an Indeed account yet? Setting one up is quick and simple.
I Need an Indeed Account
Head on over to Indeed.com. In the center of the screen, you have a few different options to sign up: Facebook, a Gmail account, or inputting your email and password separately. We are going to input an email address and password separately. Input your Alcamine email address and password of your choice, then select “Create Account.”
Next, you will be prompted to create your portfolio. You have the option to upload an already created resume or build one on their site.
If you choose to upload your resume, Indeed will autofill your relevant information for you. Don’t worry, you will have a chance to review and edit the information before you complete setting up your portfolio.
If you choose to manually input the information, Indeed will prompt you through each section.
Input your basic information, including your name, location, employment eligibility, and contact information. In the email address section, make sure to use your Alcamine email address. Select “Continue.”
Continue through the prompts, filling out your education background, experience, and skills.
Take the time to list each of your skills. This will help you to stand out on the Indeed platform.
You can now review all of the information that you inputted, ensuring that everything is correct and ready to go. (Don’t worry, if you ever need to, you can easily go into your profile and add or edit information.)
You’re all set! Go ahead and select “Save and Continue.” You will be taken to the job searching screen to begin looking for jobs.
Indeed requires that you verify your email address, so be on the lookout for a verification email, keeping in mind that this email will go to your Alcamine inbox.
Once you have completed your profile with as much information as you would like, head back over to Alcamine.com. Go to the “Connect Board” and notice that Indeed is now listed as “Connected.” This means you have successfully linked the two accounts.
Indeed will now send you emails listing jobs that match your interests. Check your Alcamine inbox often, and let those jobs come to you!
