What is JAMS - Job Application Management System?

What is Qwert5 - JAMS?

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!

You also have a job history with which is associated, information like employer's name, start and end dates, job responsibilities, achievements in the job, etc. These details are stored in Job History.

To do this, click on the "Apply" hyperlink on the Qwert5 window on the right. Now click on "View your resume".

Are there any limitations on the size of the text that I enter on various forms on Qwert5?

SAT Link on Advice Page

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.

Clicking that link presents you a calendar from which you can choose the date for that field.

Can I change the choices in the Next Action Drop down to something that I prefer?

Can I change the "Next Action" or the "Status" options to something I want?

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.

Can I send job application related emails through Qwert5?

Can I send job related emails to the recruiter from Qwert5?
 

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.

What are next action reminders?

I like the feature of receiving next action reminders, how does that work?

SAT Link on Advice Page

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.


SAT Link on Advice Page

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.

How can I stop reminder emails for obsolete applications

I am receiving reminder emails for actions that were due a long time ago - like 2 weeks or 2 months. How do I stop it?

You cannot stop reminder emails for such actions. Qwert5 considers actions that were due today or any day before today as "Overdue actions" and will send reminders about the actions.

You have 2 options.

Option 1 - Set a next action date substantially into the future.

If you want to continue to track that application (which would be in case of positions which have gone on hold but are expected to revive in the future), you can change the next action date to something many days after today so until a day before that date, you will not receive reminders about that application. Using the application reordering option, you can also place such applications to the bottom of the applications which you are tracking. Later you can once again use the reordering option and bring it to the top or any other position that you like.

Option 2 - delete the application.

You always have the option to delete the application at any time. Do remember that once you delete the application, there is no way in which you can retrieve that application and "undelete" that application.
 

 

Can I download my resume?

Is there a way I can download my resume as it appears on Qwert5 ?

You can download only a pdf version of your resume. There are many free pdf converters available for download - choose one that you find appropriate after assuring yourself that it does not download any viruses. Then you can simply print your resume to the output pdf file using the browser's print option from the "View your resume" page.
 

How long can I store applications on Qwert5?

Is there a time limit to how long I can track applications and Keep-In-Mind entries on Qwert5?

Any application can be tracked for a maximum of 1 year after which the application is purged.

A maximum of 99 active applications can be stored at any time.

A maximum of 30 Keep-In-Mind website addresses can be stored at any time - each for a maximum duration of 30 days.

Do you share resumes with recruiters?

Do you share any of our resumes with recruiters?

No. We do not share your resumes with recruiters without your permission.

Do you charge job seekers to recoup your expenses?

What do you charge for storing our resume and profile on the Qwert5 website?

The job seeker pays NOTHING for any of Qwert5 services. You will notice we do not ask for any of your financial details on our website.

How do you pay for expenses of this site?

If you don't charge anything, how do you make your money to help sustain this venture?

We are dependent solely on Advertising revenue for our day to day expenses.

I need more than just next action, where I can log the progress of each application?

I have multiple interactions for each application. How can I keep a log of interactions for each application?

SAT Link on Advice Page

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.)

I have different dates of next action. How does Qwert5 help here?

The dates of my follow up for each application is different for each application. Does JAMS allow me to keep different dates of next action?

Yes. Simply change the next action date in respect of any application that you have stored.

I now have more information about a job. Can I change what I stored earlier in my job application?

I entered information about an application to the best of my knowledge when I submitted my application. Now after multiple interactions, I know more about the position. How many times can I update the information related to that application?

Any number. Qwert5 does not put any limitation to the number of times that application details can be changed in respect of any application.

A position was put on hold but is now active. Can resume tracking it?

The position I applied for went on hold and now has revived. I have to restart tracking of that application. The recruiter has also changed. What should I do in JAMS?
 

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.

How do I permanently stop tracking an application?

How do I stop tracking an application on Qwert5?

Delete the application in JAMS using the "Tracker" Option.

Pop up blocking on Qwert5

Pop up blocking and Qwert5

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.
