How to find out when your prospects are recruiting
SummaryWouldn’t it be nice if there was a way to be notified by email as soon as something changes on your prospect’s job pages.
If you’re a recruitment agency, there’s a good chance that part of your role is looking to see when prospects (or competitors!) in your sector are recruiting. One way to do this is to check out their websites regularly. This can be very time consuming, especially when you’re trying to keep track of dozens of sites.
Wouldn’t it be nice if there was a way to be notified by email as soon as something changes on your prospect’s job pages. (e.g. a new job is posted) . Actually there is...
Changedetection.com is a free website that does just that. It’s not the most visually stunning site out there, and I’m sure there are others, but it does exactly what it says on the tin.
You might find that depending on the target page structure and layout, you get notifications when changes are made that are not relevant (for example if news changes on the same page) but you can normally live with this.
You can even add a bit of code to your own site that visitors can subscribe to, so that they get emailed when YOUR website changes.
Overall, a very handy tool and its basic functionality is free!
