You can change the default display of jobs in your Dashboard and applicants in the Job Manager. To do this go to your Account (accessible from the header menu) and click on the preferences tab.
You can select how many entries to display by default and how they should be sorted. You can also choose to hide or show the graphs by default. You can still change the view on the Job Manager or Dashboard pages; they will then revert to these defaults when you next sign-in.
