Jobs sites RSS

RSS is a published list (also known as a "feed") of the most recent updates to a website or a part of a website (like a blog or forums). You can subscribe to the RSS of a website and be able to look at a list of it's most recent updates instead of going to that website all the time and checking if they have updated since the last time you were there.

Use RSS to your advantage when trying to find a job online by filtering the RSS of new job listings by keywords that interest you. Example - you are looking for freelance work only, you can filter new job listings by the keyword 'freelance'.

To set an RSS filter - go to one of the job sites listed above and find their RSS feed (if they have one), subscribe to it in your RSS feed reader (such as Google Reader or Feedreader), then find the option in your RSS feed reader to create a folder where you send items from RSS feeds based on certain keywords. Create the folder, set the filter, and you're ready to go.
