The Problem

Mounting a job search means researching industries and companies, networking, preparing resumes and cover letters, and writing hundreds of correspondence emails1. Even if you know how to do all of these things, it's a daunting process. Some can afford resume consultants or access their college's career office, but even these resources fall short on several fronts.

Our Solution

  1. Documents: Your resume and cover letter are the first things a recruiter sees. Don't miss this opportunity to make a positive first impression. We help you create an unlimited number of high-quality resumes and cover letters in fraction of the time. And our Wizard Tools feature over 10,000 pre-populated text suggestions, making it easy to quickly fill out your resume.

  2. Correspondence and Application Tracking: Our Application Tracking software helps you manage your job applications. When it's time to follow up on a job application or write a thank you email, we'll send you a text with a link to the appropriate email template. Take a couple minutes and fill it in, just like Mad Libs®, and off it goes.
  3. Resources and Tips: The Resource Portal full of advice, tips, and videos covering topics ranging from how to research a company before an interview to how to write a proper offer acceptance email, and everything in between.

Our Founders

Brian and Ringo have close to 40 years of combined technology and human resources experience. Ringo is overflowing with recruiting and HR expertise, while Brian loves nothing more than making things easier through technology. So, with these passions in mind, they teamed up in 2018 to figure out how to make the job search process easier through innovation.

Brian Erke, Founder

Brian Erke

Brian focuses on tech, product and the business side of things. He's passionate about his family, lifelong learning, coding, and entrepreneurship. Prior to Career Tracker, Brian was CEO and cofounder of Gratafy, where he hired hundreds of people and saw thousands of resumes. Many resumes and cover letters failed to represent the skills and abilities of what often times turned out to be awesome candidates. And of the candidates that made it to an interview, many didn't understand the importance of persistence, follow-ups, and how far a thank you email can go. Brian's mission with Career Tracker is to help job seekers through an intensive job search with free technology tools and informational resources, built to better prepare them before, during, and after they've finished their job search. Brian attended undergrad at the University of Washington, and earned his MBA from the Wharton School.
