New Excel Job tracking template

Unemployed or just looking for a new challenge in life, you will be contacting companies and send them you resume, getting interviews and finally a new job.

For this adventure, it is essential to keep a good tracking record of who you contacted, what you sent them and when  and by using an Excel template you can achieve this.

We created a job search template that will let you keep track if all your searches and remind you to call back the companies.

Here the Template tracking list screenshot.

You enter the following information in the Excel Job Search Template.

Entry date: the date you entered this line. Type SHIFT-CTRL ;  to enter today's date.

Contact person or web site: Enter the web site or the name of the contact or any other infomration remembering you who you contact is.

Position, subject, task discussed: any information, like phone number, address, names, website, comment heard or discussed, etc...

Document sent: did you send a letter and the CV or just the CV. Write also the version of the CV.

Last Contact: the date of your last contact with the company. The last contact is set per default to the entry date the first time you make an entry. You can change this date of course.

Status: enter CLOSED, TO DO or WAIT.

Next Contact is defined by Delay: Enter how many days  after the last contact you want to be reminded. Per default set automatically to "last contact" plus one week so that you do not forget :-)

Recontact: Will turn RED to remind you to contact the company again. Nothing worse than wait too long.


The second part of the template is an timing overview of the searches you do on various job and employment search websites.

Here one more screenshot of the second part of the job search template. It let you plan precisely what web site you want to go and on which day.
