Using Monster.com to Document Your Job Search
A job seeker recently sent us a note with a question about how he could document his job-search efforts -- people who are receiving their unemployment benefits may be asked to substantiate these efforts.
And Monster.com Product VP Matthew Mund responded with three suggestions for how a Monster.com user can keep track of the jobs he or she has applied for -- I think the third is the best:
1. The URLs for each job posting are unique -- while the job is posted, you can point to it (however, the URL expires when the post is removed).
2. Printing or emailing job posts to yourself is another way to keep track of which jobs you've applied for.
3. Your Monster.com Apply history shows which jobs you've applied for and when. (When you're signed in to Monster.com, click on Jobs: My Apply History.) Save that page as a PDF or take a screen shot of the page to document your job-application history.
And speaking of unemployment -- "The New York Times" recently discussed the practice, of some employers, of discriminating against unemployed people. Monster is strongly against this practice, as we discuss in this blog post on MonsterThinking.
