Optimize your job search with the “My Ideal Job” feature on Jobboom!

Are you looking for an easy and efficient way to optimize your job search? Jobboom’s My Ideal Job feature is just what you’re looking for – it allows the ideal job to come to you!

Looking for a job is hard work. Instead of spending day after day looking at job offers online, why not let My Ideal Job do the legwork and bring perfectly-matched job opportunities directly to your inbox?

With My Ideal Job, Jobboom sends you targeted job opportunities by email, all of which are selected according to criteria you provide in the module. My Ideal Job allows you to be the first to know about interesting job opportunities and to quickly apply to the positions that are right for you.

How to set up a My Ideal Job profile

  1. Sign in to Jobboom.com or create a new account.
  2. From your Candidate dashboard, select My Ideal Job’s tab

Now you can get started!

First, describe what kind of job you’re looking for by entering the Title of your ideal position, the Employment Status you want (permanent, part-time, internship, etc.) and the Type of Enterprise you want to work for (start-up, SMB or large company).

You have the option to choose several answers to these questions.

Click Next to move on to the Region section of your profile.

In the Region section, you can choose from one of two options:

  1. You want to find a job close to you.

Select the first module and enter your information. You can then define the distance you are willing to commute to work.

  1. You want to find a job in a different region

You are willing to relocate or know that you are moving soon to another town?  Enter the name or postal code of the city where you want to find a job. You can also define how far you are willing to commute for work.

You may also select more than one city for your job search. This flexibility is helpful if you are able to travel but still haven’t decided exactly where you want to work.

Once you’ve completed this section, click Next to go to Your wishes section.

In this section you will define the following:

  • What are the working conditions you want in your new job? A better work-life balance? A salary increase? Carreer progression? Professional reorientation, or the ability for telecommuting?

You can select several working conditions that you want.

  • What are your favorite means of transportation? Would you rather drive to work, ride your bike, take public transit or even walk? Choose your preferences and Jobboom will include them in the criteria when selecting job opportunities for you.

You can also choose several transportation methods if you prefer.

Save all your information by pressing Done. You will then be able to see your complete profile, which you can change or save at any time.

Let employers know that you’re actively looking for a job – and tell them your search criteria

Once you’ve saved your profile, we recommend that you make your profile visible to employers.

Employers will then be able to see the job titles that you’re interested in, as well as the industry, the region you’re looking in, the distance you’re willing to travel to work, and work status you’re looking for in a job. This functionality lets employers know you’re actively looking for work and allows them to contact you directly if your profile meets their needs. You can also activate this functionality later if you prefer.

Choose your sector of activity

This section allows you to select the industry sector or sectors that you’re interested in working in. It’s not mandatory to choose a sector if you haven’t yet decided which industry you want to work in; you can also choose several sectors if you like.


Activate your My Ideal Job profile!

Your profile to receive new jobs offers by email is now activated. If you no longer wish to receive emails from Jobboom, you will be able to disable the “Receive premier postings” feature. At any time, you can reactivate the function simply turning right the radio button.

You can also choose whether you want to receive your email notifications in English or French or both. You will then receive the job description in the language available.


Whether you’re actively looking for a job or just seeing what’s available, by creating a My Ideal Job profile you certainly won’t miss finding your ideal job!
