When fog blurs your view, ask your friends


I don’t do it on purpose and I don’t plan it… but I have this helping personality and it is always out there. If I see a need or see a friend reaching out, I figure out if I can help. Maybe you are like that too. It doesn’t have to be close by either. In this day of social media and global conversations, you can hear about needs anywhere. Of course you need to trust the people you are helping, everyday I get e-mails from someone asking for help with their large sums of money.

If you have ever read this blog before, you probably have noticed that I reference Jason Alba of JibberJobber quite a bit. Today, when I read Jason’s post about JibberJobber competition, I couldn’t help but comment back to his question, “I think I can only do one thing about my competition (outperform them and gain a critical mass of users/evangelists)… what do you think I should do?” but more than that, I want to spread the word.

Jason has been a friend of many of us in the career industry. He has given us training and help on many projects and been a keynote speaker at many of our conferences including the recent Career Directors International conference in Orlando.

Read his post, and leave a comment on his blog… and then if you haven’t yet explored JibberJobber.com, the career management tool that helps you with your job search, spend sometime exploring.

Come back and visit me again too! 🙂
