    Hello. Is there any good software (freeware if possible) to help one to keep track of job applications? Thanks.

    What exactly do you need the application to do? "Keeping track of job applications" can be done in Finder, or on a piece of analog paper.

    Wouldn't iCal and AddressBook handle about 80 percent of the work?

    Clearly you've never had to look for a job in the climate we're in today. However i agree with the more useful poster that iCal would work for this as it is what i used when i was applying for other jobs.

    Thanks for the suggestion. I did not know iCal can handle most of the stuffs I want. You just click on the date and enter all the contact information and date of submissions, etc? The iCal window will be crowded if somebody apply for hundreds of jobs,

    Maybe you could divide them up into separate calendars: Jobs that look promising, Jobs I really want, Safety applications, etc.

    Then turn calendars on and off to make things look less crowded.

    I'd keep the contact info in AddressBook, personally, but to each his own.

    BTW, your first post mentioned that you wanted to keep things free, but if you're willing to spring for Bento, that db integrates nicely with AddressBook (and I think iCal). You could probably make yourself a nice db for job applications.

    Whether you have or haven't your response clearly shows that you've either never had to keep track of numerous jobs that you've posted for or you were simply being snarky.

    Having sent over 50 resumes in a 3-month period I found myself posting for jobs that I had posted for previously. I used iCal to keep track of when I applied, where I applied (web, mail, etc) and then scheduled a follow up if I felt it was one that I should follow up on. I then kept track of interviews and follow ups from there. So yeah, iCal ...

    Are you going to stop making assumptions, or are you just being snarky?

    You can get by just fine with Finder; a folder for each resume you post along with a text file to keep track of things.
