Evernote makes it easy to remember things big and small from your everyday life using your computer, phone, tablet and the web. I personally have used Evernote for over 6 months. I use it as a Recruiters ongoing diary. Making your daily plan, tracking resumes, by clients and searches. Make notes on all my candidates, as I am talking to them. Completely searchable. All of your contacts at your fingertips. Web clipper is a great tool for clipping resumes on the fly right off the internet. I have it on my PC, phone, and tablet at home. Evernote has saved me many hours of work, and puts all of my work, at my fingertips. I highly recommend this application. If there are other recruiters out there that use this program, feel free to make a comment on how you use it with your work.

Dan - easily one of my favorite and most used Apps!

I use it every day for clipping interesting items from the web, some of which make it onto my company FB page or are shared with clients/candidates. I also have about 20 miscellaneous notebooks for storing other stuff. However, I've never had the urge to use it as a full-blown ATS or contact manager. So you're using it to manage your entire workflow? You've got me curious.

I have been clipping resumes off the internet for awhile now, I have a folder of about 165. I paid my annual fee for space, which is very cheap.

I clip a fair amount of stuff and am only scratching the surface of the storage limit (2 gigs out of the 60GB limit). But $45/yr is not much (about as much as I pay per month for my current ATS) and the main benefit is probably the ability to search PDFs. I may give it a try. I have dabbled at managing a few searches with it. The beauty of Evernote is that it becomes a central repository for all sorts of electronic information and it syncs across all of your devices. Together with Dropbox it is an app I use daily, so I'm already a believer in the platform. Thx.

Ok I am going to show my lack of technology here.  What is evernote? Would it be helpful for me in my legal search practice?  Please be kind in replying as to my technical skills I may recruit high end technical attorneys I am just not technical.  : )

You have to download it and see how it would best work for you. It is best to run it with Google Chrome. Evernote has a clipper plug-in that works great to clip a site off the internet. You will have to start running Google Chrome for a browser. There are other plugins, you have to choose what is right for you. I am on the phone alot, and I can quickly make notes of those calls. I make my recruiting plan everyday on Evernote. I have custom folders for clients, candidates, leads. I run the desktop version at work, which can also be accessed from any computer, anywhere, and I have a smartphone app version also.

Dan thank you so much for the information.  Would you be willing to call me?  It sounds a little confusing and it would be helpful for a walk through. 


I told you I was not technical.

There are a lot of cloud storage apps...I use evernote, and google drive(docs) all the time.  Along with Trello for project management.  Also a big fan of instapaper for reading later items...check out my fav http://lifehacker.com/how-i-work/ blog for life/work hacks....
