Why Grandma Should Use JibberJobber

June 15th, 2009
Disclaimer: while talking about “grandma” I hope I’m not crossing any PC lines… you know, maybe I should have said Grandpa (because he should do what is described below?), or Nana, or Grammy, or whatever.  No offence intended, to grandmas, nanas, grammys, grandpas, etc.

JibberJobber is a job search tool, right?

Not really.

It’s a personal relationship management tool (shhh!  don’t tell all the job seekers using JibberJobber that it isn’t a job search tool!).

Let me give you an example of how JibberJobber could be used to manage relationships…

My wife’s grandma (affectionately called Nana) has a special gift – she always sends just the right thing on birthdays.  Sometimes its a thoughtful card with a bit of money, sometimes its a shirt that is stylish and just the right size – we don’t know how she does it, but she (a) never misses and (b) always sends the right thing.

We, on the other hand, miss just about everything we can.  My wife regularly finds fathers day cards, birthday cards, etc. from years ago.  We’ve been known to send a batch of these lost cards to cover the last few years :p

So what we should do, and anyone who sends cards and presents and well-wishes, is put our loved ones into JibberJobber (this is private, no one can see the people I put in (unless I make them my Coach)) and put their birthdays in.

All I have to do is put a name and birthday.  That’s it – you don’t even need the year.

Then, JibberJobber emails us on the first of each month with a list of upcoming birthdays (for the next five weeks), and another email on the day of (or a few days before) the birthday.

It is really quite powerful to get these reminders – whether you are in a job search or not, retired or in middle school, I think this birthday reminder is a very cool feature to help you stay on top of those special dates.

This is a free feature in JibberJobber – just login and start entering the info!
