You can then do keyword searches, save searches, and set up regular e-mail notifications. A profile has already been set up for you based on your CV/Webpage to run searches. Access and modify your profile by selecting on your name in the upper right corner of your Pivot home page. The site is really user friendly and there are tutorials and help links if you need them.
