You can use Google to look for jobs on Craigslist by keyword.Go to Google.com and type
site:[the URL of the Craigslist site for the city where you want to work] [keywords]
site:goldcountry.craigslist.org/ barista coffee espresso
If you don't care where the job is, just use "craigslist.org" instead of "goldcountry.craigslist.org".
One of the advantages of this is that an employer might post a job under any of several categories. This way, you don't have to move from page to page in your search.
As another advantage, you don't have to read through all the postings that don't relate to your search.
You can get Google to send you an email alert with your search results.Just go to www.google.com/alerts and enter your search as shown above. Then adjust the settings and click on Create Alert.
You can change the alerts and their settings by clicking on "Manage your alerts."
You can create more than one alert.Here are some ideas:
- Create an alert for each city or region where you would take a job. Just browse around the Craigslist site to get the URLs.
- Instead of having Google search just Craigslist, have it search the whole internet for your name (and variations on it). This way, you can monitor your reputation.
- If you want to keep up with the news about a particular company, you can set up an alert for it, too.
