When going for entry level jobs or hourly jobs the faster you can apply the better. Some hiring managers have told me that after the first hour of a Craigslist posting, they stop looking at resumes.

IFFTT is a free web application building tool where you can create IF THEN tasks so that if there are new jobs posted, you can get an alert in any way you wish, including texts, calls, or emails.

This means that in minutes, you’ll have a chance to apply to some of the most competitive jobs out there and have a better chance at all of them.

With IFFTT the combinations are endless, including weather alerts, Facebook post alerts, and I have one for some garage shelves. Check it out.
