How to Use Evernote to Keep Your Job Search Organised
It's challenging staying organised in the best scenario, but when you're beating the pavement (or internet) looking for employment, it's even more of an ordeal. If you're job searching, you're outside your normal routine, and it's easy to become scattered.
If this is you, we have good news for you. There are some great organisational tools out there, and one of the best is Evernote.
Follow these quick and dirty tips and you'll be winning.
Create a Job Search Notebook
In your Evernote workspace, create one notebook that's exclusively for your job search. Then, create a new note for every job you apply to. Keep copious notes on when you applied, what you sent them, etc...
Your job search notebook is also a great place to store your resume and other work-related documents.
Evernote isn't just for notes. You can use this remarkable tool to save screen grabs of job descriptions, video clips describing a company's culture, business cards and even a video or audio of your Skype interview if you recorded it.
Create a To-Do List
One note should be a to-do list. This can serve as your master list of everything you have to do for your job search.
Save Handy Templates
There's no need to re-write every job enquiry. Save different versions of your standard email introduction letter as notes, then simply copy and paste into emails.
Sync Evernote with Other Tools
You can sync your Evernote with other tools for even greater functionality. For example, some Evernote integrations include Gmail, Google Drive, Dropbox, Slack, and Trello.
The job search isn't easy, but if you can manage to keep all of your notes gathered in one place, you'll be ahead of the game.
