I’ve used Outlook, Lotus Agenda, a Palm Pilot, software designed for my industry but found gaps in all of them. Difficult to use. Really only work related. Could only use on one device. Complicated to use. These are my reasons for failing with them. Maybe your experience is different but most people I speak with have a similar story about staying organized.
I read a story recently about a product that I have quickly grown to love called Wunderlist.
Wunderlist runs on almost everything you might want to use– iPhones, Android phones and tablets, PC’s, Macs and iPads, even Chrome extensions to facilitate entering items– and is very easy to use. It comes with a few categories built in but you can easily create more.
As a job hunter, it means your to do list is available anywhere you are. As human being, it means you can easily enter something you need to do, set a date for completion and check it off when it’s done.
Enter when to follow up with a call or email
Create to do’s for each resume you submit and follow ups with reminders to follow up with calls and emails.
Did I mention that it’s free?
I don’t mean freemium with in-app upgrades.
I mean free.
The only thing you now have to do is enter your to do and actually do it.
