Jason Alba is the job seeker's advocate (and aren't we all job seekers?). He was laid off in January 2006, just a few weeks after Christmas. Even though he had great credentials and it was a job-seeker’s market, Jason could hardly get a job interview. Finally he decided to step back and figure out the job search process, including trying to understand all of the available resources. Within a few months he had designed a personal job search tool, JibberJobber.com, which helps professionals manage career and job search activities the same way a salesman manages prospects and customer data.

Jason blogs at www.JibberJobber.com/blog and recently finished his book "I'm on LinkedIn -- Now What??" – more information at www.ImOnLinkedInNowWhat.com.
