What to do in the First 14 Days (during the free Premium trial period)
1. Import your data. When you first sign up for JibberJobber you get 14 days of premium services for free. During the first 14 days the most important thing to do is import your data. Go to Outlook, LinkedIn, and any other system where you can get contacts, export from those system, and then import into JibberJobber. Also, take your business cards, put them into a spreadsheet, and import those.
You can import your contact in a variety of format to your JibberJobber account. You can even import you Gmail contacts, LinkedIn and Twitter Friends.
2. Figure out your Categories and Tags for network contacts. One of the most useful things in JibberJobber is the categories and tags feature. Figure out what your categories should be, and what tags you’ll use. Perhaps categories could be industries, and tags could be professions… or tags could be something like “interviewed_me” if the person interviewed you, or “Christmas” if you want this person to receive a Christmas card during the holiday season.
3. Enter your target companies. All career experts recommend you track target companies, so list them in JibberJobber. Having them here allows you to put log entries on them, create action items, and even tie contacts and resumes to a company.
4. Track your jobs. Put in all of the jobs you’ve applied to and tie them to a company. This way you can keep track of where you are with each position you are interested in.
