I am not able to find on my Careers profile the positions I applied to in the past. Is there a way to see positions I have previously applied to?

I've sent in applications to around 8-10 positions in the last month or so and would like to be able to check or track which companies and/or positions I've already applied for.

Related: mark jobs as applied, even if you do it outside the SO Careers form. – rvidal Feb 21 '14 at 18:00

If you click on the messages link near the top right corner of the page you'll find your messages and a list of your job applications.

To be fair, it's not obvious... and that's why I'm working on it right now! – Nick Larsen Feb 8 '12 at 18:09

@Pacerier: Yes. Those companies don't accept applications via email or an ATS integration. We can't keep track of them. Sorry :( – Jason Punyon Dec 1 '15 at 12:26
What a poor user experience!!! My applications are not available in the sent messages section. I am unable to find the original job application description... please tell me this is just "newbie error". – arcseldon Jan 5 at 0:37
@JasonPunyon, Btw just curious: most of the applications I see link to external sites. Is this just me or is it that a fairly high percentage of companies are doing it without integration? – Pacerier Jan 20 at 9:45
