Sign up for Resume Search Alert?

About a week ago PostJobFree started asking recruiters to create resume search alerts every time recruiter posts a new job.
Creating resume search alert is a good way to get new resumes that match job opening you are trying to fill.
Still it is not for everybody: one recruiter told me she does not want to see. Sign up for resume alert screen after she posted a job.

Please let me know (in comments or email to webmaster@postjobfree.com):
Do you like "Sign up for Resume Search Alert" screen after you posted your job or would you like to turn that screen off?

  2. @SunnyBB: we will definitely keep "Sign up for Resume Search Alert" screen.
    I just consider if we need to add a checkbox to it like "never show this screen again".

    Thank you for your feedback.

  3. @Jeff Altman: it is simpler to do nothing.
    Having no checkbox is simpler. No distractions on "Sign up for Resume Search Alert" page.
    No need to stick "Turn that 'Sign up for Resume Search Alert' on again" checkbox somewhere.
    It looks like most recruiters like to see 'Sign up for Resume Search Alert' screen after job posting and the rest are ambivalent like you.

  6. I like it, since it saves duplicating time and efforts while screening. on the flip side the matches are quite appropriate and lead to some time loss.

  9. Hemangi,

    if alerts matches are not appropriate, you may edit your alert and use different keywords.
    You may also use boolean search:
