“Keeping track of jobs you’ve seen, where you’ve seen them, and which ones you’ve applied for is becoming a problem for professionals who are in the middle of a job search. Tracker makes this problem disappear. - StartWire CEO Chris Forman

StartWire (http://www.startwire.com), the nation’s leading online job search organizer, today released Tracker, an easy-to-use browser plugin that allows active job seekers to automatically record and organize jobs they’ve viewed and applied for across the web. Tracker is free and immediately available to any job seeker who joins the 1.6 million professionals already using StartWire at no cost.

“On average, active job seekers use 5 different sites to discover and apply for jobs,” says StartWire Founder & CEO, Chris Forman. “Keeping track of jobs you’ve seen, where you’ve seen them, and which ones you’ve applied for is becoming a problem for professionals who are in the middle of a job search. Tracker makes this problem disappear.”

Once Tracker is downloaded on to a job seeker’s Chrome, Internet Explorer, Safari or Firefox browser, it quietly organizes job listings viewed and applications completed. A user can see recent activity in a side bar or log into their free StartWire account for a full history.

“I spend less time sorting through duplicate jobs and I always have a record of my job applications,” said Cindy Marquard, an active job seeker and Tracker beta tester. “It’s wonderful!”

With 70% of job seekers reporting to StartWire that organization improves the results of their job search, easy organization is an important tool for finding a job faster. Tracker allows job seekers to spend less time keeping track of paperwork and more time finding and applying to openings.

“Tracker is stellar. I really needed it to keep track of my interviews! Now I’m in a new position,” said Pete Monaghan, another job seeker and Tracker tester.

Organization is only the beginning, though. Tracker also makes real-time recommendations about how to improve your job search and suggests other jobs you may find interesting. These recommendations are based on the job seeker’s unique job search, which the tracker interprets and then uses to produce similar job recommendations.

Tracker is the latest offering from StartWire – the nation’s leading online job search organizer. With 1.6MM members, rave reviews, and coverage in US News & World Report, The Wall Street Journal, CNN, TechCrunch, Mashable, ERE, and Human Resource Executive, StartWire is endeavoring to radically improve job search for professionals across the US. StartWire is headquartered near Dartmouth College in Lebanon, NH, employs 15, and is backed by Baird Venture Partners.
