Cumberland, RI (PressExposure) July 23, 2009 -- JRBM Software announced today the release of Job Hunt Expressâ¢ a pioneering Job Search Management (JSM) software package for job seekers who are facing what some are calling the most difficult job market in memory. Based upon proven Sales Force Automation (SFA) techniques from the business world, the easy-to-use and economical software system makes job seekers and their job hunt more efficient and more effective, thereby increasing their chances of securing a good job as quickly as possible despite the increased competition for scarce jobs in the current economy.
âEverything is different now. In the past nine months, the job hunt has become an unfamiliar and overwhelming ordeal for the typical candidate. It is no longer enough to send out a few resumes and wait for a call back. Instead, it has morphed into a high volume strategy and numbers game in which job seekers must apply to many more open positions, follow up more frequently with recruiters and hiring managers, and network with more business and social contacts than ever before,â said JR Rodrigues, co-founder of JRBM Software. âTo complicate matters further, job hunters must seek out and follow through with widely scattered online job postings, newspaper job listings, recruiters, friends/colleagues, job fairs, and other networking events. Job Hunt Express was developed specifically to address this new, much more intense environment.â
Bringing the power of sales force automation tools to the job candidate, the Job Hunt Express software system allows job seekers to quickly organize all of their job opportunities, recruiters, networking contacts, and other important data. All related notes, hiring manager âhot buttonsâ, documents, and data are easily stored and retrieved for each contact. The system further provides for effective strategic planning, tracking, and follow-up of all job opportunities â much like the more expensive and complex CRM or sales force automation tools used regularly by sales professionals. Based upon state-of-the-art Microsoft Mobile SQL database and .Net technology, the economical software combines practical functionality and convenience with an intuitive, easy-to-use interface so that any job seeker can benefit from its use.
âThe hiring process is really a high stakes selling exercise for the job seeker. You have to âsellâ the hiring manager, and likely others, on the fact that you are the best candidate for the job,â said Tim Tippett, a Boston-based sales executive and user of Job Hunt Express. âThis easy to use software program got me organized and working more efficiently very quickly and enhances my ability to create strategies to sell myself to employers, much like the more expensive contact management systems that I have used in various sales jobs throughout my career.â
Beating the âResume Black Holeâ
The ranks of the unemployed continue to grow as companies shrink staff due to the current economic downturn. This has led to what some experts have called the toughest and most competitive job market in our lifetime. Hundreds of resumes are often submitted for a single job opening, thereby forcing recruiters and hiring managers to gloss over most candidatesâ credentials in mere seconds and typically not even acknowledge their receipt. This resume âblack holeâ is causing significant frustration and feelings of helplessness on the part of otherwise qualified job candidates. Likewise, the overwhelming number of job search websites, online and offline help wanted ads, job fairs, networking events, professional recruiters, friend/colleague referrals and all of the associated contact data only add to the very real despair felt by many job candidates every day. These job seekers must take back control of the job hunt process and their careers by using every method possible to stay in contact and ultimately persuade the hiring decision-maker that he or she is the right person for the job. This is extremely difficult to do if an applicant is not truly organized and completely focused on the myriad strategies and tactics involved in a successful job search. Job Hunt Express was developed specifically to empower job seekers to beat the âResume Black Holeâ and get hired more quickly by benefiting from the organization and planning functionality offered by the latest in computer technology.
About Job Hunt Express
Job Hunt Express offers state-of-the-art tools to make job candidates more efficient and more effective in their quest for their next great job. It provides functionality akin to the software that sales professionals use on a daily basis to maximize their selling results but with a specialized focus on job hunting.

Planning a customized strategy for each opportunity and organizing it into a structured calendar of calls, meetings, and other activities is the next important step in the process. Automatic updating and tracking of the implementation and execution of the strategic plan for each job opportunity is another key component in ensuring that job hunters are putting their best foot forward and not letting any opportunity slip through the cracks. Job Hunt Express keeps the userâs job search focused and on track until the next job offer is accepted.
