Organize your job search with Careerleaf

Posted on December 14th, 2012 by Amber De Angelis in Internet Resources

With the holiday season upon us, it can be difficult to keep track of your job  hunt.  But luckily there is a tool that can help.

Careerleaf is a great portal for managing your job hunt.  Setup is easy. When you create your account you can import your resume or data from your LinkedIn  account. Your account includes a profile, an email account, and three powerful tools– the job search function, Application Manager, and the Tracklet.

Job Search

The job search function makes it simple to search across multiple job boards quickly. Career leaf pulls from multiple sources including SimplyHired, USA Jobs, Career Builder, Mashable and more. Just type in the job title and your zip code into the search bar and you’re in business.

The Tracklet

Once you find a job posting to your liking, Careerleaf makes it easy for you to apply to openings  and keep track of the postings.  All you have to do is install the Tracklet into your browser. Clicking on it will launch the app and you’re ready to rock.

You can use the tracklet to:

  • Autofill an application
  • Send emails via your Careerleaf account
  • Download your resume
  • Add jobs to the Application Mananger

Application Manager
Careerleaf’s Application Manager allows you to keep track opportunities and add notes. The notes can be especially helpful when you are prepping for an interview. Moreover, you can add contact infomation and set the stage you are in the hiring process.  It also makes it easy to add your correspondence to the Application Manager when you use your Careerleaf email.

Two more things…

Take the tour of the website and look at the FAQs   Here you can learn about privacy settings and a little bit more about the features CareerLeaf has to offer. Check out their blog too.

And two, if you next extra support, Neighbors Helping Neighbors is going to be meeting every Wednesday at 7pm here in the Kirstein Library.

Cheers and good luck!
