FreshTransitionHaving trouble keeping your job search organized? FreshTransition is an online tool that allows users to organize all aspects of their job search.

Job seekers can track their completed job applications and schedule interviews and other job search events. All the information is saved in a personalized FreshTransition calendar you can view when you log in to your account on the site.
