North Brunswick, NJ (PRWEB) April 19, 2011
Job seekers gain a free year of access to the newest online job search and management tool, JobPad™, when signing up before June 1, 2010, and offering to give occasional user feedback. There is absolutely no financial obligation to sign up or participate now, or when the full year of service is completed.
JobPad, which debuts for the first time today, is directly accessed from any web browser. It allows job searches across multiple job boards and corporate career sites, and centralizes job seekers’ user queries, notes, correspondence, resumes and related documents in one place. For users of Mozilla Firefox 3.6 or below, JobPad also includes JobClipper™, a tool that “auto files” every job application submitted by users. JobClipper™ is a Firefox add-on that automates the online job search. Vemuri says JobClipper will be available for Internet Explorer and Google Chrome browsers later this year.
JobPad delivers what every job seeker requires,” said Gopal Vemuri, founder and president of JobPad, “which is a ubiquitous, online and always-organized desktop for job search documents and details.” Recent data from Climber.com, an online career management site for job seekers and recruiters, says that job seekers spend 47.9 hours per month searching for job positions online. They spend another 43.6 hours applying for job positions. “It can be confusing and time consuming to figure out what you’ve applied for and when,” said Vemuri. “JobPad simplifies the process by giving job seekers one place and one tool to manage their entire job search, from accessing the job listings and applying for specific jobs to knowing what resume and cover letters were uploaded and submitted to specific job or corporate sites. Clearly, job seekers need a streamlined and systematic approach to their job search,” said Vemuri.
JobPad allows job seekers to track submitted job applications from virtually any job board or corporate career site, including Monster.com, Yahoo HotJobs, CareerBuilder, DICE, even LinkedIn, all from within JobPad.
Job seekers can also maintain a Job Log, set goals and reminders, and send notifications to personal and business contacts through FaceBook and LinkedIn. Making the job search even less time consuming—and organized—is the JobClipper. Once a job seeker fills out and submits an application, JobClipper takes a snapshot of that application and allows the job seeker to name and file it online.
The company is offering a full year of free access to help it refine and enhance the software’s interface and functionality. Users who sign up June 1 are given free access and will be asked to provide open-ended comments to JobPad, as needed. In addition, JobPad will send each user five to seven questions every month or so for added insights.
“Our goal is to advance JobPad and grow it organically through user feedback, comments and ideas,” said Vemuri. “Rather than be heavy handed about how, when and what a user shares with us, we believe we can gain the intelligence required with a gentler and more relational approach with users.” Users may offer their feedback using http://getsatisfaction.com/jobpad, an easy-to-use online feedback site.
How To Sign Up for JobPad
Users may immediately sign up to become charter JobPad members and gain free access by going to http://www.jobpadhq.com/index.php/registration. Once an account is confirmed and activated, they can begin using JobPad. Users with the Mozilla Firefox browser may download JobClipper, re-start the browser and begin using JobPad and JobClipper. Firefox users will see two JobPad tabs—Home and Login—-appear in the left corner of their browsers. The Login requires a username and password, which then opens the job seeker’s personal “job pad.”
“It’s your job pad, so welcome, walk in and get a feel for the place,” said Vemuri. “This is the spot where you can go to find a neat, clean, orderly site that’s all job-search-related. JobPad is essentially about you and your job search, and your job pad, the place that’s personal, accessible and dependable.”
