JibberJobber was designed by Jason Alba during his first real job search in 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. During the course of his own job search, he realized another major component to successful career longevity is networking. The addition of a major networking component to JibberJobber has created a powerful tool for anyone interested in a successful career.
JibberJobber is quickly becoming one of the most prominent job search and career management websites on the Internet. It has been featured on the Wall Street Journal's CareerJournal.com, About.com, Yahoo! Finance, Sree Advice (WNBC New York Channel 4), and Webware (a CNet site) to name a few.

A Great Looking Informative Business Card is a Must for Any Job Seeker
A business card is a great tool for job seekers. Potential employers will know you mean business when they see you've already invested in yourself. JibberJobber refers to this as thinking about "You, Inc." or "CEO of Me, Inc." Take a few minutes to carefully think about the way you want to present and promote yourself and your abilities. While building your business card, treat it as a "mini-resume". Use the front of the card to list your name and contact information. Then, use the back of the card to promote your credentials, degrees, professional abilities, etc. Creating a business card that accurately portrays your abilities to a potential employer may pay big dividends down the line.
Our business cards are printed on high quality, thick card stock. We also utilize offset presses and a 4-color printing process. We do not use laser printers or copiers. We offer a quick turnaround on card orders too. Generally cards are printed and shipped within 48 hours of being ordered (excluding weekends). Using our professionally designed and printed business cards will further enhance the professional image you are trying to convey to potential employers.
Ordering Your New Business Card
If you see a business card that you want to use, simply click on that image. By clicking on the image it will immediately take your selection to the Card Editor. This area will allow you to continue developing your card by entering your personal information (credentials, phone number, email address, mailing address, etc.). It will also give you the opportunity to use the back side of your card if you desire. Once you're satisfied, go ahead and complete your order. We will never sell your information. We are not a data collection company. We print business cards. It's that simple for us. In addition to this peace of mind, we also offer our 100% satisfaction guarantee. This means we will reprint at no charge, if you are not completely satisfied.
Business Card Etiquette
- Cards should be clean, accurate, and easy to read. Remember, they represent you. Correcting info on your cards yourself is just plain tacky.
- When given a card by someone else, treat it with respect, remember it represents them. Act as if it is important to you.
- Read the card when it is handed to you, that way you can ask any questions immediately if they arise.
- Keep the card out so you can discreetly refer to it if you forget a name.
- Wait until an appropriate time to give your card out.
- It is inappropriate to include business cards with thank you notes, congratulations, personal letters and notes.
- Likewise do not hand them out in uncomfortable situations. Funerals, doctor's appointments, and other serious events are not the time for marketing.
- Never be stingy with your cards, even if you are running out.
