Did you know you can set preferences on language jobs related emails in all sorts of ways, to make your experience with ProZ.com better serve your needs? Interesting and lucrative opportunities from language companies and end clients are posted as jobs hundreds of times each day.
Many users set their email preferences at ProZ.com and forget them.
This post is your reminder. If you want to know about jobs posted in your language pairs, translation jobs, interpreting jobs, specialties, working fields and interest fields, make sure that you are set to receive jobs notifications.
You have the tools to take control and determine your own choices on how much, or how little job-related notifications you receive. The Jobs Notifications dashboard is available at: proz.com/dashboard/jobs
You can get to it from your profile page, by going to Settings > Email Preferences > Job Notifications, or by clicking the Jobs email settings link on your home menu.
Now, make sure that your "Classic" job posting notifications for freelancers are set to "On" and that the "Pair-specific Preferences" are set to "Immediate alerts":
Decide what kind of offers you want, who you might want to block from sending, and even what country they come from, and whether you want to see the budget involved before responding. This can be done from the flags and filters setting.
