In this activity, you will perform an internet search for jobs you’d like to apply for.

Then, you’ll set up email alerts to find out about future job opportunities.

To keep track of the jobs you want to apply for, you will add another sheet to your search plan.

In this “applications” spreadsheet, you will collect information about job opportunities, including the location and salary for each job, and the website where you found the listing.

You’ll create headings to organize this information, and apply formatting to make the spreadsheet easy to read.
