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?
