In the electronic age, it has become easier than ever to submit your resume to a company for a professional opportunity — just hit submit and off you go. Given the ease of sending one’s resume, it is absolutely critical that candidates keep track of where their resume is going. Nothing frustrates a recruiter more than presenting a candidate to a company for an opportunity only to find the candidate has already submitted their resume directly or been presented by another recruiter. It reflects poorly and on both the candidate and the recruiter, and it shows a lack of professionalism.
The “Resume Tracker” is a very crude but effective tool to assist you in keeping track of where you are sending your resume. You can also use it to keep track of your job search and the progress on various opportunities you may be pursuing.
