What Is Jibberjobber? Where Did It Come From? Who Should Use It? Why Use It?
JibberJobber is a career management tool that helps you track and nurture Jason Alba relationships. It is a personal relationship manager that allows you to manage a job search and optimize your network relationships – for the duration of your career!
JibberJobber was designed by Jason Alba during his first real job search in January 2006. After having a successful career in IT and business strategy, Jason found himself in the job market, which was supposedly a “job seeker’s market.” Turns out, it wasn’t a friendly market for him. As he outgrew his job search spreadsheet, he conceived the idea for JibberJobber.
JibberJobber is a tool for:
- Job seekers – most of the signups we get are people who are actively in a job search or know they are getting downsized soon or unhappily employed and looking for something better.
- People who are happily employed – whether they are networking for a promotion or simply want a tool to help manage their professional relationships, plenty of JibberJobber members are not in a job search but simply want a tool to keep Me, Inc. organized.
- Business owners – We’re not gutsy enough to say we’re competing against any CRM system out there, but running a business is all about relationships, and business owners use JibberJobber to track relationships, company information, important documents and more.
Use JibberJobber throughout your entire career. Use it to keep track of that headhunter that was so helpful three years ago. You can always have access to the e-mail address of that HR manager from the company you really wanted to work for. JibberJobber is the place to keep this information, whether you are passive or active in your job hunt. Having all your contacts at your fingertips could be… priceless!
