I have recently spent hours interviewing JibberJobber users across the world, as well as career coaches and resume writers. I am very interested in hearing what they think about JibberJobber, and what they would like to see… I’m also completely intrigued at what their experience in the job search is like, and what frustrates them.
These calls are exhilarating and exhausting at the same time.
One thing I’ve learned is that people use JibberJobber quite differently. Based on the input, I wanted to share tips on how to really get the best out of using the premium JibberJobber level. (we just lowered the upgrade by 40% from $99 a year to $60 a year… tell me that isn’t awesome. See what you get in the upgrade here)
Guess what – those are all the reasons anyone would upgrade! We moved the other features to the free side… which means if you don’t upgrade you get a ton of value for free…!
But, upgraded users are still not getting all the value they could… I know, because I talk to them on the phone! Here are six more tips for anyone who uses JibberJobber, whether you are on the upgraded account or not!
A user recently said there is a lot of magic in JibberJobber. I wish I could simplify it and say “we do this, and we do it well!” But it is hard to define the “this” because JibberJobber’s breadth and depth have expanded over the last almost-eight years. Now we are suffering from what I call Excel Syndrome. I argue that most people use 5% of Excel’s amazing features, and that is really enough. BUT, there is so much more that they could use.
In talking with my users I’ve realized some of the things I depend on and love are unknown, almost hidden features for them. That’s why I encourage you to jump on any of the weekly user webinars… otherwise, use the Contact form and give us feedback and ask us questions. We are just as committed to making JibberJobber more valuable to you as we have been every day since we launched in 2006.
