Jason designed JibberJobber 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 months passed, and 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. Jason is author of “I’m on Facebook – Now What??? and is currently working on “I’m on Twitter – Now What???”. Contact him at Jason@JibberJobber.com.
