IFTTT is probably not a new tool on internet and it can also be used in your job search by simply using recipes.

Moreover you can also add parameters like people, dates, places to narrow down your search.
Take an example –
If Twitter then that.
(Office OR #Office AND Blogger OR #Blogger AND Job OR #Job)

Combine Craigslist and IFTTT – Craigslist has a good advanced search parameter and similar to Twitter’s IFTTT you can also use your search operators and bring those notifications to you email instantly.
Combine Reddit and IFTTT – Reddit also has big search page that has some powerful search operators and are similar to above to sites (Twitter and Craigslist).
