What is RSS?
RSS stands for Really Simple Syndication and it is a very effective way of keeping up-to-date with the latest information on the ICDS Website. Rather than visit our site to find out if new content has been added, RSS will tell you when the new stories that you want are available by delivering them directly to you.
Getting started with RSS?
Generally, the first thing you need is a ready-made programme called a newsreader, which is no harder to use than email or web browsers. Most newsreaders are applications that are downloaded from the Web and installed on your computer.
There are many different types of newsreaders available for download (remember to select a newsreader that will work with your operating system)
Mac OS X
If you don't want to download newsreader software, you can simply visit a website that acts as a reader such as http://www.feedster.com/ or my.yahoo.com
There are also some browsers, including Firefox and Opera, which automatically detect RSS feeds for you and also allow you to "bookmark" them.
The advantage of browser based RSS is that these browsers automatically check feeds for you when you visit a website, and display an icon when they find one. This can make subscribing to feeds much easier. For more details on these, please check their websites.
How do I use RSS to receive ICDS Vacancies?
Once you have installed a newsreader, then you can decide what Company sector or subcategory of that sector you want.
Carry out a job search relevant to you. Select, category, location of interest and keywords relevant to the job you are looking for. The more specific your keywords, the more relevant your list of jobs.
Click on the orange RSS Icon in the Search Box or drag the URL into your reader/browser.
Jobs matching your criteria will be updated onto your reader/browser as soon as new jobs are posted on ICDS.
