You’re looking for a job.

You’re applying on different job boards and sending dozens of resumes every week.

You’re about to apply for the latest ad, but the company seems familiar. Did you already apply here and get rejected?

Your job search doesn’t have to be this confusing.

We’re here to bring you a solution that takes your job application strategy to the next level!

The #1 Mistake Job-Seekers Make

Picture this: applications spread across different job boards, scribbles on sticky notes, and reminders on your calendar that catch you off guard.

You get a call from a company you don’t remember applying for, or you accidentally apply to another employer who already rejected you last month.

The most common mistake job-seekers make is not organizing their job hunt.

You might think organizing your job applications is a hassle, but this kind of chaos can lead to overlooking follow-ups, confusion between different job applications, and, worst of all - missed opportunities.

Disorganization makes it hard to keep track of any progress you might have made in your job search, and it makes the entire process more stressful than it has to be.

Every job application is a potential future career, and when you miss the details or the deadlines, it decreases your chances of landing your dream job.

The Novorésumé Job Tracker is Here to Fix That!

Organizing your job search is a crucial step to succeeding.

You need a structured system to track where you've applied, set reminders for follow-ups and interviews, and include detailed notes for each application.

This is why we created the brand new Novorésumé Job Tracker!

The job tracker transforms your job search from a shot in the dark to a well-managed strategy.

By using the job tracker, you can make sure that every application is followed through with the attention it deserves, as well as add detailed notes and track your progress.

No need to try and remember what company you’ve already applied to; just take a look at your boards on the job tracker for the details.

Each job entry comes with tons of options where you can add a link to the job ad itself, as well as include the salary range, note the channel you used to send your application, and create any custom notes you need.

By using the job tracker, you can attach files to each job ad you include on your job board and save up some space.
