What are Journal Entries?

A Journal Entry is an individual effort in your step towards achieving your career goal. Journal entries are of four types:-

  • Job Applications: Track your job applications, from application to offer.

  • Project Bids: Manage your efforts for winning individual projects, step-by-step.

  • Consulting initiatives: Free-form step-by-step tracking space for winning consulting/coaching gigs, anything where you're trying to establish a long-term relationship.

  • Pitches For the entrepreneurs, track your pitches of all types, from the first meeting to the final offer.

With journal entries, you have a dedicated space to track career initiatives like these in detail. With tasks, writing spaces, and novelist, you can powerfully and intelligently direct your efforts towards your career goals.

How to create a Journal Entry

To create an entry, simply click on the Create one to get started button on your entries card on the journal page, which is visible when you don't have any entries for the selected journal. If you have entries, you'll see a button marked Add another. Make as many entries as you like for a journal.

Now, the action panel on the journal page (which is on the right on large screens, and at the bottom on mobile screens) will give you options to create entries. Select a type to continue:-
