A Dream Come True “App” For LinkedIn Members 13 Comments


As a recruiter or a job seeker (or any professional for that matter) you’ve spent years building a network on LinkedIn. Depending on your use for the incredible amount of information available through your network you might visit the site between multiple times a day to multiple times a week (or month). LinkedIn has features built into their site to notify you of updates within your network, yet it’s nearly impossible to stay on top of the most important activities within your network – and keep your network engaged (with very little effort). Until now.

Atlanta, GA based SalesLoft is a sales intelligence company that has its’ sights set out to create the world’s most sophisticated sales intelligence software.  The company has found that around 3% of people make a change to their headline or title on a monthly basis – and with their new free app called Job Change Alerts you can sit back and have the information delivered to your email.

SalesLoft’s young team of recent GA Tech Grads built the incredibly useful and powerful free app Job Change Alerts – that is an asset to anyone with a LinkedIn network or LinkedIn connections.  I signed up for the free service, which is extremely quick and easy (it took less than 30 seconds).  Once signed up, you’ll receive daily updates on your LinkedIn Connections including:

  • New Jobs
  • Birthdays
  • New Connections

The ability to send just-in-time, related messages to your network (besides I am reaching out because I need something) with little effort is invaluable.  The possibilities are endless for sales professionals, recruiters, job seekers, or any networker.

Ben Franklin wrote “relationships are always in need of constant repair.” Damn, he must have been thinking of JobChangeAlerts.com as a great tool to maintain and cultivate your professional relationships!

Congrats to the SalesLoft team for keeping it simple – and building this powerful, free app. Network your heart out.
