How do I change my account settings?
Changing your account settings will allow you to choose an email address, location, and job title with which you will receive personalized Jobograms every day in your email. To make these changes, click the Login link atop the Jobogram home page. Use your user name and password (as they appear in the email you received after registering) to login.
Now that you are logged in, you should be taken directly to a page titled "Edit your JOBOGRAM Profile." Here you can select the city, state, and zip code where you wish to look for job opportunities. A dropdown menu titled "Geographic Region (nearest search)" allows you to choose a location from job boards' regional directories.
Most importantly, you must use this page to edit your job search terms, under the title "Job Titles (Up to 3 sets)." In these three boxes, you can choose one or more search terms that will best fit the type of job for which you are searching.
How can I receive Jobograms that relate to my desired location?
In order to receive Jobograms that include job opportunities in the area where you live or wish to work, you must type in a city, state, zip code, and geographic region on the "Edit your JOBOGRAM Profile" page. Keep in mind that certain areas will have many more job opportunities than others.
How can I receive Jobograms that better relate to my skills and experience?
In order to receive Jobograms that are ideally personalized for your unique circumstances, you must type in up to 3 search terms or job titles on the "Edit your JOBOGRAM Profile" page. Because Jobogram uses these terms to search for jobs in your area, it is important to choose the right words to describe the job you are looking for.
It is necessary to find a balance between general and specific terms. For example, if you are an artist who paints landscapes, typing "Landscape artist" may end up finding you jobs that relate to "Landscaping" or "Gardening," but not "Painting." That is why, in some cases, it is best to choose basic, broad terms that definitely relate to the job you wish to find. On the other hand, choosing search terms that are too broad may result in receiving Jobograms that are not specific enough for your needs. For example, if you are a mechanic who uses "Repair" as one of your search terms, you may receive job opportunities related to all sorts of repair-related jobs. In this case, it might be a better idea to use "Auto repair" as your search term, to avoid unwanted and unrelated jobs.
