How to stay on top of your emails

As a job seeker and an IT professional, you are very busy and don’t have time to be sitting in front of your mail client constantly waiting for the arrival of an email. Especially if you are waiting for job alerts, or emails from IT recruiters Boston, you need to be on top of your game.

If you are a Google fan and are already using Gmail, then why not take a look at their new desktop notification option.  For those of you who have switched over to a Chrome browser, you will be able to take advantage of this right away.  Other browsers will hopefully have this feature soon.

Applying for IT jobs and working with IT staffing agencies will require you to be alert of job openings.  Most IT staffing companies will contact you as soon as they find that you are a fit for the technical position.  But what happens if you’re working on something when that email arrives and don’t see it until it’s too late? This new feature will have a pop up message from your browser alerting you of the new email.

With this new feature, you will not be wasting your time refreshing your browser or sitting there waiting for a new email to arrive.  In addition, the notification will allow you to see who the email is from.  By being able to know who the email is from, and seeing the subject line, you can just ignore the message if it’s not important.

So if you need some help staying on top of your job search, why not add this to your list.  Who knows, maybe you’ll get a notification from an IT recruiter with that perfect new technical job today!
