Recommended Resource: JibberJobber, career toolset
This year, the United States seems to be in an economic slump. Employees feel that they have even less job security than before, if they ever really had any. It’s time to begin contingency planning, networking, and promoting your personal brand in the marketplace.
Luckily, there is an online toolset that can help you manage the complexity of activities that surround networking, career management and job searching. JibberJobber is a powerful tool that lets you manage your career, from job search to relationship management to target company management (and much more). JibberJobber is free for life with an optional upgrade. JibberJobber is a fantastic tool–it even allows coaching to link their accounts with their clients’ and monitor job search / networking activities. But one of the best features is the blog, which includes helpful tips from someone who has been there: Jason Alba, who designed the toolset during his own job search in 2006. It is quickly becoming the most important tool for career management.

On a related note, Jason is also the author of I’m on LinkedIn, Now What??? and I’m on Facebook, Now What??? Gotta love the three question marks; it seems to really capture the frustration that we feel when we’re told we should get a profile up but don’t really know what to do with it.
