HotJobs Unveils Job Search Tools

July 23, 2003 ( - Online recruiter HotJobs has added new tools that are designed to help job seekers and recruiters find each other more easily, including a proposed jobs function and a suggested search feature.

The proposed jobs function automatically suggests employment opportunities based on a job seeker’s stated resume job title as well as saved job searches on HotJobs initiated by the job seeker, according to a company news release.

The suggested search feature shows users how to broaden their job search queries for additional available job opportunities if their initial search does not produce results. The feature lists up to three additional search queries and notes the number of jobs associated with each suggested search.

Improved site features also include:

  • an enhanced search results page where job seekers can sort search results by job title, company name, salary and date, as well as conduct advanced searches by company name, employer or when the job was last updated
  • a streamlined version of quick search on the home page, enabling job seekers to find and apply to jobs more quickly through searches by keyword, city and state
  • enhanced search agents, which job seekers can request be sent to them on a daily, weekly or bi-weekly basis to let them know when a job opportunity matches their search criteria.
