  1. Account Executive or Manager
  2. Sales Representative or Manager
  3. Project Manager

  5. Business Development Manager
  6. SAP Consultant
  7. Marketing Manager
  8. Business Banker
  9. .Net Developer
  10. ITO Service Delivery Consultant

This is really cool because of a conversation I had with one of my favorite recruiters a few years ago.  I met her while speaking in Silicon Valley, and she said something like “If I need to find a CRM candidate I’m going to look for a JibberJobber user!

I loved that (of course)!

JibberJobber users essentially give themselves “on the job (search) training” on using CRM because that is what JibberJobber is.

As a JibberJobber user you learn about relationships, how they relate to eachother, follow-up, logging activities and creating action items, and much, much more.

One reason I love JibberJobber users is because they are proactively doing this – not because some boss told them to do it, but because they get it on their own…

If CRM skills are becoming more in-demand, doesn’t it make sense to become proficient with your JibberJobber account? What other web service can make you a better, more qualified candidate?
