Learn more about using job alerts to help manage your job search.

Can I change my email address?

Can I edit my job alert preferences?

Yes. You can edit and save your job alert preferences at any time. Sign in and go to the job alerts page and click edit for the one you want to change. Easy!

How do I create a job alert?

Visit our job alerts page and sign in to your Microsoft Careers account to create a new job alert.

What is a job alert?

Create a job alert and you will receive an email when positions (based on the criteria you set) become available. Simply decide what types of jobs you are interested in and the frequency you want to receive emails.

If there are no new positions, you won’t get an email. You can also turn the feature on and off at any time. It’s that easy!

Why can’t I see the job alerts I created when I sign in?

With the various ways to sign in, it’s possible that you used a different method when you created your alerts. If you choose a different method, you won't see the job alerts that you created with the original sign in method. Be sure to use the sign in method prescribed in the email—your Microsoft Account, Google, Facebook and so on.
