Updated over a week ago

There are a number of ways you can manage the jobs you are notified of, as well as the jobs that appear on your dashboard.

How do the notification settings work?

Your notification settings determine how and what opportunities you receive notifications for. You can select the job categories and locations you would like to be notified about.

You can choose to be notified by email and/or push notification.

How do I turn all notifications on or off?

To manage your notifications on a desktop:

  • Click on your profile icon/picture in the top right-hand corner

  • Select ‘Account Settings

  • Click on the ‘Notifications’ tab

  • Update your notification settings and save your changes

To manage your notifications via the app:

  • Click on your profile icon/picture in the top right-hand corner

  • Click on ‘Notifications’

  • Update your notification settings

How do the Filter and Sort features work?

The ‘Filter’ and ‘Sort’ features can be found on your Sidekicker Job Portal dashboard. They are really helpful for refining and sorting through the jobs that are available to you, so we encourage you to use them!

The ‘Open’, ‘Applied’ and ‘Passed’ filter

This feature allows you to filter jobs based on their status, making it easy for you to navigate between:

  • Open opportunities that are currently available

  • Opportunities you have previously applied for that are still pending

  • Opportunities that you are not interested in and have therefore passed

Note: On a desktop, opportunity status filters will appear as tabs on the left-hand side of your screen.

The ‘Category’ filter

This feature allows you to filter opportunities based on the job categories. This is the best way to narrow down the number of opportunities that are visible on your Open dashboard and to ensure those opportunities are relevant to the kind of roles you are interested in.

In addition, you can filter opportunities by distance, allowing you to set the preferred distance you would be willing to travel for work. You will only be able to view opportunities that fall within this range, however, this can be changed at any time.

The ‘Sort’ feature

This feature will allow you to see the most relevant opportunities first, based on:

  • Posted date - to help you find the newest opportunities

  • Company name - to make it easier to find opportunities listed with a particular company
