3 searches per day is acceptable, 15 per week so says my advisor in Rotherham.
Best thing to do, do your weekly searches and apply on a Sunday, right them all down on paper, apply them to universal job site as per told, 3 searches per day, make your searches long in the activity log. i.e. instead of putting ..searched emails, put something like, I have checked my emails online as to my job alerts and applied to ......... Later today i will check my emails again later, and apply accordantly. ect.
Works for me.
When can you expect yours?
