Yesterday, I replied to a job on http://careers.stackoverflow.com. Today when I wanted to see the status of this application, I went to my Careers profile, clicked "messages" and realized there is no overview of my applications. I don't even have proof that my application has been sent. Am I missing something?
There was a delay with sending out your job application due to a bug in our system. We've taken care of the issue and your application has now been processed.
You should now be able to see the Job Applications section on the messages page where you can verify that your application has been sent out.
Thanks for bringing this to our attention and sorry for the delay!
Once you're logged in, click
messages up in the top right, then
job applications in the left navigation. You should see a list of all the applications you've made through careers. Click on one to see the covering letter and CV you sent with the application. Of course, this won't work for jobs where the 'click here to apply' was a link to the employers separate system.
If you're thinking it isn't at all obvious that this is where sent applications can be viewed, I'd be inclined to agree.
