Your job search can feel never ending and exhausting, especially right now. 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.

How does Alcamine do this? By connecting all of your job boards in one place. Here are some blog articles on the additional job boards you can connect to: Glassdoor, ZipRecruiter, and Hired.

Keep in mind, not all job boards are created equal when it comes to the job opportunities you might be looking for. Monster is a mixed bag. It’s great for casting a wide net, but you will receive a lot of spam and random jobs. It’s worth having this set up just in case a recruiter with your dream job finds you though!

Below are some step-by-step instructions on how to connect Alcamine to Monster.

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!
