and job searchers friend. Jason is the author of "So I'm on LinkedIn, Now What"
and he is coming to POAC (Maryland Professional Outplacement and Assistance Center) to be with you for two hours on September 23rd from 6 p.m.
to 8 p.m. Please join us!

Who is Jason Alba and why is he coming to POAC?

Answer - To talk about "Strategies, Tactics and Tools In Career Management 2.0."

Jason is immersed in the world of job search technology and as it evolves it will continue to grow and influence the evolution of job acquisition strategies in all career management systems. Connectivity is what it is all about. On the evening of the September 23rd you'll hear about the new tools of the trade from Jason who wields a major influential keyboard in making that happen.

To RSVP, contact Brad Dubner at bdubner@dllr.state.md.us and let Brad know you want to be one of the 80 people who will be attending.

Background: www.JibberJobber.com 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.

So what is JibberJobber? Is it a job search tool? Is it a networking tool? It is more like a personal relationship manager that allows you to do everything you need to do to manage a job search and optimize your network relationships - for the duration of your career!
