If you’re a recruitment agency, there’s a good chance that part of your role is looking to see when prospects (or competitors!) in your sector are recruiting. One way to do this is to check out their websites regularly. This can be very time consuming, especially when you’re trying to keep track of dozens of sites.
Wouldn’t it be nice if there was a way to be notified by email as soon as something changes on your prospect’s job pages. (e.g. a new job is posted) . Actually I found a way …
Changedetection.com is a free website that does just that. It’s not the most visually stunning site out there, and I’m sure there are others, but it does exactly what it says on the tin.
OK, you sometimes get false notifications when the target page structure and layout changes for example, but you can normally live with this.
You can even add a bit of code to your own site that visitors can subscribe to, so that they get emailed when YOUR website changes.
Overall, a very handy tool and its basic functionality is free!
