I love testimonials… I really got a kick out of this one, from a senior level marketing executive:
You told me two years ago how beneficial it will be to have all your job searching info archived some place where you can find it, dust it off and use it again at a later date.
Well, here I am, at a later date and when I returned to JibberJobber it was like returning home to a familiar and friendly “happy place”.
Don’t let this imply that being without a job two years ago was anything like a happy place but now that I’m at the doorstep of going through that process again, the info, processes, support, etc. resident on Jibberjobber made it feel like a friendly and welcome “happy place”.
I want to share with all your readers that it’s true…JibberJobber is a great place to safely keep your career growth info. It’s like keeping a map or atlas in your jockey box (aka, glove compartment). You only need it when you’re lost but it’s sure nice to have it when you need it…
This is from an executive who knew me during my job search. I emphasized that we would supposedly be in transition every three to five years, according to Uncle Sam. I am a firm believer in using JibberJobber even when you are employed, since you still should be networking, but the point above is this:
Even if you don’t use it during the time you are employed, how powerful is it to be able to:
(a) come back, years later, and tap into all the intelligence you collected in your last job search(es). Phone numbers, names, email addresses, companies, etc. Instead of starting your job search from Square 1, you are able to start from where you last left off, and
(b) have a set of tools already to go. You don’t need to waste a week (or more) designing your job search spreadsheet, or trying to figure out what your old spreadsheet had in it (or looking for it)… you simply login to JibberJobber and it’s there, faithfully waiting for your return.
Thank you Mr. Executive (who requested to be anonymous), and best of luck in your new job search!
