Help Wanted

December 27th, 2010

Do you feel like you are having trouble keeping a clear chart of your job search – where you applied and when.  If you’ve followed up or not?  Do you try to keep track of thing in an Excel spreadsheet or maybe in file folders in your email?  Wouldn’t it be nice to have a tool that you could use that would help you in your search – where you could make notes, plan events, meetings?

A local software developer has created an online Job Tracking and Organizing tool for job seekers – JobKatch.com.

JobKatch.com is in its early Beta stage.  The developer is looking for folks who would provide feedback on their experience using the tool to help him understand how this tool would best benefit job seekers.

It is very straight forward to use, and you may use it immediately – for current job prospects and new leads you may find.

If you are interested, all you need to do is follow these 5 short steps:

1)    Go to JobKatch.com

2)    Watch the short video about how JobKatch works. This step is really important – the video is key to understanding how JobKatch works, and it will get you up and running faster.

3)    Sign up for an account – FREE!

4)    Add the Bookmark-let to your toolbar on your browser of choice.

5)    Start adding job leads.

You may add contacts AFTER you have started adding job leads.

You may add contacts from your email address books, and from your LinkedIn account.

Please note: There is a known bug with the bulk loading LinkedIn contacts – the contacts do load, but the screen is not updated.  This is currently being addressed.  In the meanwhile, you may still add individual LinkedIn contacts to your JobKatch job leads, however, you will need to open a separate tab or browser window to get back to JobKatch.com and the job lead window.

Please use the contact form on the Contact Us page (http://jobkatch.com/contact_us) to ask questions, report any issues or make suggestions for improvement on workflow for this tool.  There is a “contact” link on the bottom of each page that will link you to the form.

Thank you for your help in advance.  Hopefully, you will find JobKatch a valuable tool in organizing your search.
