Career Management and Job Search: 2009 Style

Remember the old days of looking for a job--when you combed through the want-ad pages of the newspaper or conducted a massive letter-writing campaign with sleek stationery and piles of envelopes...and then waited for replies?

Those days are gone. The process has gone electronic and proceeds swiftly--with Company websites, recruiter sites, job boards, Google searches, and now professional and social networks (Linkedin, Doostang, Facebook, etc.). The Consortium Finance Network wants to help you make sense of it all or help you exploit these technical advantages.

CFN will sponsor a webinar Wednesday, September 9 at 7 pm EDT on how best to conduct your search electronically or navigate more effectively in Cyberspace. Jason Alba, CEO of, will host the session. Beyond electronic tools for a current job search, he'll focus, too, on ongoing career management.

JibberJobber is a special website to help professionals manage their careers. Jason also authored the publication "I'm on Facebook, Now What?" and produced the DVD "Linkedin for Job Seekers."

Register for the session at RSVP:

CFN hopes this will be the first of a series of webinars on relevant topics in career management, finance, and diversity. Other webinars are on the drawing board, but if others have ideas, share them with us.
