Why does my Job Alert send me jobs that are unrelated to what I am looking for?

This can happen when your Job Alerts do not currently have any search criteria specified in the keyword section, as this would cause the computer to send you all jobs found, regardless of the Job Sector or Location. Thus, to get the optimal results for your Job Alerts, please make edits to the keywords and other search criteria.

You can use any mix of upper and lower case characters; the keyword field isn’t case sensitive. The more specific you are the better will the results match with your desired position.
