JibberJobber for the troops

July 21st, 2006

I have my own opinions about the war in Iraq. I also have very strong opinions about the troops that are fighting over there, whether they are U.S. troops or fighting alongside U.S. troops. I doubt I’ll ever go to war but I have always that perhaps I could help in some small way. Up until now that small way was to work in the free enterprise system and strengthen one of the greatest things about America – for strengthening our system contributes significantly to the health of a country.

But I figured I could do more. I have a cousin that recently returned from Iraq, and I know several others that are serving or have come back home. We’ve all seen the 20/20’s or the 60 minutes on the stresses of returning home, and we all know about troops coming back home to nothing. I’m get sick when I hear about the soldiers who have their families back home on foodstamps – I think that is a disgrace. But they are out doing a job FOR US. And I can give a little more.
Thus, this special offer to troops serving in war right now – the following went out this morning:

Salt Lake City, UT (PRWEB) July 21, 2006 — Effective immediately, JibberJobber.com is extending a special offer to servicemen to help alleviate the transition back into a new job or career by formally offering free access to the Premium subscription. This offer will allow servicemen all of the best-practice tools during the entire time that they are stationed overseas as well as twelve months after they return home. JibberJobber is used in conjunction with other tools (like job boards) and resources (like counselors and recruiters).

JibberJobber allows job seekers to track the companies that they are interested in, recruiters they work with and job boards they post on. It also allows job seekers to keep track of job applications and the status of each one, as well as important network contacts. There are various worksheets for preparing for an interview as well as a library where job seekers can share their own ideas, tips, advice and stories.

JibberJobber is used throughout the world by job seekers that are frustrated trying to keep track of where they apply, who their contacts are and all of the other information gathered in a job search. Extending this free access is a show of support to returning troops. They already have enough to worry about coming back home – hopefully using all of JibberJobber’s features will ease the transition.

While many features of JibberJobber are free forever, there are many conveniences that are only found in the Premium subscription. These are conveniences that career experts preach and teach, and they make a job search more efficient and effective. This special offer allows our veterans to use these high-end tools and conveniences to more effectively manage their job search.

With this special offer, war veterans will have access to auto-emailed reminders so they don’t miss important follow-up, expense tracker to keep track of possible tax deductions, importing and exporting of their data to interface with Outlook, a PDA and other programs, and many more features.

This offer is available to any serviceman or servicewoman that is overseas and is concerned about career or job issues when they return. Wives or others that are involved in helping these military personnel transition back can actively participate in helping find a job and use JibberJobber along with the serviceman they are helping.

  1. […] TransitioningHome.com is sponsored by JibberJobber, who offers free access to deployed (and recently returned) soldiers to help them in their job search and career management.  Please help spread the word about this to soldiers so they can get their career moving (e-mail this link to people: http://www.jibberjobber.com/blog/?p=26)!

  2. […] Many of you know that I have a special program dedicated to soldiers, marines, sailors and other servicemen/women who are returning from deployment. Why? Because I can. No red tape here. If someone is deployed they get 30 months of premium JibberJobber for free. This assumes they will be gone for 18 months, and gives them an additional 12 months once they are back (whether they are really gone for 18 months or not, I don’t care – they still get 30 months of premium services).
