Hi, I'm Matt.

This is the format of the spreadsheet I used for my last job search. I found it really hard to juggle the 1-3 people I was talking with at each of the 15+ companies I was researching to see where I wanted to work next. This sheet made sure I didn't drop the ball with anyone, and let me do a ton of informational interviews without constantly worrying about forgetting someone.

Please let me know if you have any feedback on how to make this useful for you or future job seekers! My email is unusuallydifficult@matthewfdupont.com. If you're interested in more information about how to look for jobs, check out unsuallydifficult.com.

Make sure to use the "Next action" and "Next action date" for everything you do, so the sheet can remind you what to do next! PendingWaiting for time to elapse or someone else's action. Best when paired with a next action date, so it switches to Our Court when too much time goes by.
