4. Add Jobs to Your Spreadsheet

Playback Speed:

In this video, you will add jobs from your search results to your applications spreadsheet.

Check out one of the jobs from your search results.

Choose one you think you would like to apply for.

Click on the link to the listing.

Verify that each company is still accepting applications for the position.

Sometimes listings are out of date or positions are no longer available, but the advertisement still appears in the search results.

Enter the information from the listing into the appropriate row in your “Applications” sheet.

Enter the position title, company name, and any notes you’d like to make about the job.

For example, if the advertisement specifies “No phone inquiries,” you may want to add this to your notes.

As you explore job listings, add additional columns for more information.

For example, you may want to note what site the job was listed on; or how to contact the employer.

Continue exploring job listings and add at least two more to your spreadsheet.

Enter information in the spreadsheet for each job you find.

Any time you hear about a job opening, you can record information about it in your spreadsheet and track your application status.

Using a spreadsheet to gather information helps you stay organized and focused in your job search.

By recording your search results in a spreadsheet, you can easily compare jobs, check your progress, visit websites, and identify jobs with the qualities that are most important to you.

When you have added at least four potential jobs to your applications spreadsheet, move on to the next video where you’ll add data validation to help track the status of each application.

Now, it’s your turn: Check out at least three of the postings from your Google job search.

Add the position, company name, salary, and notes about each job to your applications spreadsheet.

When you have added at least four jobs from your Google Search, explore additional websites to find more job openings, and record each position in your spreadsheet.
