[Update 2/10/10 - "Block" feature renamed to "Hide." See new screen shot below.]
Happy International Chocolate Day!
Although it may seem like we’ve been MIA lately here at Simply Hired (sorry folks, but we’ll be better about blogging), we have actually been cooking up tons of new features to make your job search even easier. We know that’s hard to imagine, but we love you THAT much.
One particularly sweet, new feature is “Block”. This terrific tool allows you to remove certain companies or sources from your search results with just a click of your mouse. It doesn’t matter what your reason is: they may be irrelevant to your search, they might not seem trustworthy, or you may even have discovered a shocking absence of chocolate cake in their cafeteria.
Out of Sight, Out of Mind
How does it work? Let’s say you are interested in “sweet” jobs in San Francisco. Being a chocolate connoisseur, you don’t want to work for just ANY chocolate company. You would like to hide any search result which doesn’t have the company’s name. To remove jobs like these, just “Block” them.
After choosing to hide jobs where the company name is not provided, anonymous companies will no longer appear in your search results. And, you can do the exact same thing for job sites which don’t quite live up to your expectations.
Change your mind? No problem! You can always “unblock” companies under your account preferences.
Delicious chocolaty recipes, anyone?
