There is a useful Excel template available to help you keep track of your job search activities.

If you are searching for a new job, you will likely send out more than one resume. After sending out a few resumes, it is easy to lose track of where you have applied, whom you have interviewed with, and names of various contacts. If you use career Web sites, you might also lose track of which sites you have posted your resume on along with usernames and passwords to access such sites.

So if you want to be more organized in your job hunt and keep track of your interviews and contacts, try using the free Excel template. The nice thing is that you can customize the template to meet your own personal requirements.

There are two versions of the Job Search template. One version is only supported by Excel 2007, while the other can be in Excel 97 and later. You can find the templates on the Microsoft Office Online Web site. Just type Job Search in the search field and you will find both templates.
