Day ten on the "Praise Others Project" brings us to Jason Alba of Jibber Jobber. Jason is an active blogger, but has also created a great toolset for the job searcher.
JibberJobber was designed by Jason Alba during his first real job search beginning 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."
Jason quickly found that a job seeker's market does not mean the job search will be easy or short. Frustrated by the lack of real tools for job seekers, he decided to move forward on a tool that allowed a job seeker to manage and organize a job search.
As the months passed, and as Jason learned the importance of networking, he incorporated a major networking piece into JibberJobber. This has shifted its focus from a tool just to be used during one job search into a tool to be used to manage job transitions during your entire career.
I met Jason when he volunteered to host "The Networking Carnival" in November 2007. He not only accepted a submissions, but he actively went out an solicited some of his favorite business bloggers (including Seth Godin, the grand-daddy of cult-like bloggers) to give him posts on "networking tips for job hunters". I was impressed by Jason's tenacity and his real empathy for those who are looking for work.
Jason is really helping people with his JibberJobber website. Good Job!
Have A Great Day.
