  1. How  to  get  applica&on  status  updates   using  StartWire.  

  2. 1  Tell  us  where  you’ve  applied.   We  can’t  get

     updates  on  applica7ons  we  don’t  know   about!  Here  are  4  ways  to  track  your  applica7ons  in   StartWire.  
  3. 1.  Forward  your  ‘Thanks  for   applying’  emails  to  

    apps@startwire.com.  We’ll   automa7cally  pull  job  7tle,   company  name,  and   applica7on  date  from  the   email.  We  then   automa7cally  create  an   applica7on  record  in   StartWire.  
  4. 2.  Green  means  GO!  Click   the  Track  a  New

     Applica&on   buDon  on  the  Home  Page   and  add  a  new  applica7on   manually.  
  5. 3.    On  the  Applica&ons  Tab,  use  the  Track  

    A  New  Applica&on  form.  Just  give  us   company,  7tle,  and  applica7on  date…we’ll   do  the  rest!  
  6. 4.    On  any  job  lis7ng,    the   Track

     my  Applica&on  link  in   StartWire  tells  us  you’ve   applied  and  want  us  to  track   your  progress.  
  7. 2  Ac&vate  applica&on  monitoring.   StartWire  allows  you  to  get

     automa7c  updates  on   applica7ons  from  7,000  employers.  Now  that  we  know   where  you’ve  applied,  we  can  tell  which  of  your  applica7ons   can  be  monitored  for  updates.  
  8. If  StartWire  can  provide  automa7c   updates  from  a  specific

     company,   you  will  be  asked  for  the  username   &  password  you  created  when  you   applied.  Sharing  this  informa7on   allows  StartWire  to  monitor  your   applica7on  and  provide  updates.   And  don’t  worry….  your  passwords   are  completely  encrypted  (even  our   StartWire  team  can’t  see  them).         Forgot  your  username  and  password?    No  problem.  Click   the  company  name  in  green  and  we  will  bring  you  to  the   password  reminder  page  for  that  companies  career  site.        
  9. 3  Tell  us  how  you  want  your   updates.  

  10. We  always  send  an  email  when  we   detect  an

     applica7on  status  change.     If  you  want  a  text  message  as  well,   just  share  your  mobile  number.
