How to create custom Job Alerts

Gather ’round all ye who ever hoped and dreamed for a better way to find work camping jobs. With this latest release, you can now create job alerts that are customized for YOU — your search terms, your location, and your frequency. Think “Maintenance Jobs near San Diego” or “Single/Solo Jobs anywhere”.

We dared to dream. And now that dream is reality. Cue Antonio.


OK, let’s get to the important stuff. Here is a summary of how job alerts work, and how you can get started building your own. (If you don’t want to read all this, watch this 2-minute video instead.)


First, log into your KJ account. If you don’t have one yet, don’t worry — KJ is 100% FREE for work campers. Next, build your first alert. You can do this in a couple of different ways:


Option 1: Go to the Job Search page and run a search.

Click “Add Alert” in the bottom right corner like the screenshot below. This will pass your search terms into your job  alerts page where you can finalize it and save it.




Option 2: Edit and Create Alerts from your Job Alerts page

Manage it all from your Job Alerts page (you can also get there from your Camper Dashboard if you prefer)! You can edit existing alerts, or create a new one altogether by clicking “add alert”.

Now you can just sit back, relax, and wait for relevant jobs to be delivered to your inbox on the schedule that YOU set! On that note, let’s talk about the different controls and options you have in your Job Alerts list.


Job Alert Fields & Filters:

  • Alert Name: Exactly what it sounds like. This will also be part of the subject line (e.g Job Alert Results Matching “Maintenance jobs near Austin, TX”)
  • Keyword: Any term that you want to appear in the job. Make sure you’re not being too specific, though — as you may not see any jobs for that specific keyword.
  • Location: By default, Alerts will search a 100-mile radius around the location you set. Unfortunately, this is not compatible with state-wide searches (e.g. Camp Host Jobs in Texas, USA). We recommend choosing a city if you’re going to use the Location filter.
  • Categories: Similar to your resume, these are categories of work, like “Maintenance”, or “Office”.
  • Job Type: Filter by any KJ tag, such as season (e.g. Summer) or preference (e.g. Single/Solo).
  • Email Frequency: This one is important. This is how often you’ll receive your email alerts. The options are Daily, Weekly, Fortnightly, or Monthly. If you don’t want to receive emails, just leave the Alert ‘disabled’.
  • Confirm your Alert: Always make sure to check the ’email’ checkbox to receive emails. To stop receiving emails, disable the alert. If you prefer to just get a list of all jobs — you can subscribe to the weekly newsletter here.


Alert Controls:

Hovering over an alert will give you options to….

  • Delete the alert: Delete it completely!
  • Disable or enable the alert: Disabling the alert will stop the emails. Enabling the alert will resume them.
  • Results: Get a quick view of the results whenever you like.
  • Send Now: Email yourself the results any time you like.
  • Edit: Update your filters and search terms anytime!

Lastly, you should know that Job Alerts will default to running for 30 days before you need to enable them again. For example, if you choose ‘daily’ then you’ll receive an email every time your filter has matching jobs — for a 30-day period. You can easily re-enable the alert after 30 days if you still want to receive them.
