Here’s another tip for creating a customised jobs feed using Journalism.co.uk’s jobs board search facility.
In the top left-hand column on most of the pages on Journalism.co.uk, you will see a panel headed “Job of the week”. About half-way down there is a dropdown menu that allows you to search by job type. For this example, select “editorial assistants and trainees” and click “go”.
On the subsequent search results page, you will see at the top of the central column an advanced search form. This allows you to make a more detailed search based on sectors, categories, salary and location. You will also see an option under format to “return search results as RSS feed”. Select that and also tick “editorial assistants and trainees” under the “categories” section.
Click the search button and, voila, you will be presented with a customised RSS feed containing only editorial assistant and trainee vacancies.
