Using Trello to track your job search compared to using Excel. Put side by side, the difference can have a huge impact on your job search results. Trello is free, with a free mobile app.

Its simplistic design of Boards, Lists, and Cards allows for an easy set-up to capture action steps, making a list of contacts, and moving contacts through succeeding action steps easily. How to do each step is demonstrated.
- Reviewing the Trello Template which has each phase of the job lead life-cycle set up its own checklist of tasks to ensure the right things are pursued for each job lead consistently.
