JAMS - Job Application Maintenance System - is Qwert5™'s unique service to Job Seekers based on a patent (applied-for) process.
JAMS is the new and easy way to search for job postings, apply to them and track them to closure - ALL in one place on Qwert5™.
As the name suggests, you search for job postings by clicking the Search button. That option lets you enter any website URL in the provided box. As soon as you click the Open URL button, the browser window becomes half the width, while in the other half, a new browser window is opened which has the URL that you just provided. Now you navigate on that new window in the same manner as you would have done without Qwert5™ - the difference is that in the Qwert5™ window on the right, you now have access to the resume that you stored earlier - under the Apply option.
Moving information from your resume on the right to application form on the left is simple - drag and drop!
Complete your application form, but don't submit yet!
On the right window, now click on the Enter New Application menu option. And now drag and drop information in the reverse direction - from the application form on the left to Qwert5™ on the right. Store each detail - employer name, location, title, recruiter name, email address, telephone number, where you found the posting and most important - change the date of next action and select the next action - for example follow up with recruiter on a date say two days after today.
Now submit your application on the left, save your application on the right and start getting reminders a day before the next action date!
Qwert5™'s JAMS has many other features - you can annotate your interactions in the Comments section, save info like what compensation you have told the recruiter you want for a position and even choose the sequence in which your applications should appear to you - you don't want to have an application where you stand the best chance to be at the bottom of the list only because it was submitted most recently?
Yes you can search anywhere, apply anywhere but keep track in one single place - here on Qwert5™!

As an individual, you have certain details of yourself that will not typically change e.g. Your first and last names, email address, mailing address, telephone number, educational qualifications, certifications, etc. These details are entered in the Profile section.

After logging in, click on "Search".
Now, you have two options:
1) You can use Qwert5™'s own job search engine by clicking on the first button.
2) Or you can search for a job on any job site that you wish. In the text box, enter the address of the website where you want to apply and click on the submit button. The Qwert5™ browser window is reduced to half its width and in the other half an new window is opened where the page of the address you specified is displayed.
Search and apply for jobs like you would normally do on that website. (Qwert5™ does not differentiate between job sites or careers sections in corporate websites.)
Once you have found a position in the Search window on the left, simply click on the links provided in that website - like the "Apply to job" button on that website. Any information that is required to be entered as part of your application process can be dragged and dropped from your Qwert5™ resume into the appropriate form fields.
To do this, click on the "Apply" hyperlink on the Qwert5™ window on the right. Now click on "View your resume".
Now you have your resume on the right and the application form on the left. Simply select the appropriate text in your resume and drag and drop it into the application form on the left into the appropriate form fields.
Once you have entered all the fields DO NOT CLICK ON THE SUBMIT BUTTON YET!
Now click on the "Enter New Application" link and drag and drop from the application form window on the left into the Qwert5™ New Application form in the window on the right. Note that you can drag and drop even non-modifiable text from the application window into the New Application form. Click on "Select Date" in each case and store the date by selecting the date on the popped up window. Once you have entered all available details in the Application form, you can submit the application in the left window and store the new application in the right window.
Definitely. Qwert5™ does not differentiate between applications based on their mode of submission.
You can track any application through Qwert5™'s Application Tracker irrespective of how you have submitted the application. Simply click on "Enter New Application" link in the Apply section and enter details as you would like them to be stored.
To do this, click on the "Apply" hyperlink on the Qwert5™ window on the right. Now click on "View your resume".
These applications may have been submitted as an email to a recruiter or even as a mailed application using your Postal or Courier services or fax or even outside Qwert5™.
Click on "Track". All applications that you have entered in Qwert5™ and which you have not deleted, are shown to you. Select the application you want to change information about by clicking it. Change whatever information you wish to change and click the "Save" option at the bottom of that application. To collapse that application, simply click on the application title at the top of the form - the form collapses. If you do not want to save any of the changes, simply collapse that application.
Yes. Each field has its own limitations with respect to its length. The maximum length of the string that is allowed is provided against each field.
As data is entered in the field, a running count of that field shows how many characters you have used out of the maximum length allowed for that field. Once that limit is reached, any characters entered thereafter are ignored.
Against each date field you have a link "Select date".
Clicking that link presents you a calendar from which you can choose the date for that field.
No. We have given a large variety of options for both Status and Next Action. Further the order in which we have given options are what we have experienced in a typical job search. Please write to us with suggestions as to what more "next action" options we can consider for inclusion using the Contact option.
No. In the interest of security and to avoid complaints of spamming against our website, we do not allow any user to send emails from our website.
However, you can view your resume on QwertQwert5™ on screen. You can edit the content of any of the job history entires, dates, places etc any number of times till you are satisfied. Thereafter, you can email yourself your resume in pdf format.
Against each application which you are tracking are two fields - next action and next action date. You can choose any appropriate next action from the options provided in the drop down boxes.
Starting on the day before the next action due date and subsequently, Qwert5™ automatically sends reminders to you in respect of your applications which qualify as above. Only one email message per day is sent to a you. This message will contain details of all applications having qualifying next actions. Please ensure that emails from Tom@qwert5.com are not automatically moved to the trash or spam folder in your mailbox. Next action reminders also contain details of Keep-In-Mind entries that you have stored on the Qwert5™ website.
There is a 600 character comment field in each application. You can enter any text that will help you to remember each interaction with each recruiter. (We suggest that you enter comments such as "6/24:infmd rec that 80K ok. 6/25:rec says 80K 2 high, can go fr 76K, told rec ok for 76K." - cryptic but having all information you need. Later on if you find that you are running out of space for adding more information, you can always delete earlier part of the comments to be able to accommodate more recent comments towards the end.)
Yes. Simply change the next action date in respect of any application that you have stored.
Any number. Qwert5™ does not put any limitation to the number of times that application details can be changed in respect of any application.
You would have put a status of "On Hold" when the job went on hold. Now, you can revive the application by changing its status to an appropriate value and also the next action date. Recruiter details (like any other detail) in the application can be changed any number of times.
Delete the application in JAMS using the "Tracker" Option.
For the fullest experience on Qwert5™, you will need to allow Qwert5™ to open pop up windows. Qwert5™ by itself does not open more than 2 additional pop up windows - except when you explicitly click on a displayed ad on our website.
When you have entered and stored a web address and details in Keep-In-Mind, a new window or tab is opened when you click the web address. The second additional window is opened up when you click on the Open URL button on the Search section of JAMS - see below.
These are the ONLY two links where we need to open pop up windows due to technical limitations imposed by ALL browsers.
