San Francisco, CA (PRWEB) October 02, 2014
Today Traba.co announced the release of an online-learning tool that teaches job seekers the best practices for executing a job search. The tool promises to walk job-seekers through easy-to-follow lessons that demonstrate how to execute the most important elements of resume preparation, interview readiness, and job search networking.
“We met with hundreds of smart, accomplished people struggling to find jobs and examined how they were presenting their experience and preparing for interviews,” said Traba CEO Terrence Cummings. “We realized almost immediately that there was a big opportunity to help people improve how they attacked their job search, and how they presented themselves on paper and in person.”
Cummings continued, “Before today, the solution for preparing for a job search was either hiring an expensive job coach who might charge you thousands of dollars, or googling your way into an abyss of conflicting advice. We curated the advice we picked up over the course of our careers and our experience as hiring managers, then meshed that with the advice and preparation processes used by the graduates of top schools...then we added a little fun.”
Traba’s Job Search Learning Tool teaches through a combination of articles, videos and podcasts. Accessing the learning tool requires a $29 monthly subscription fee, but job seekers can try the service for free for 7-days without putting down a credit card by visiting http://www.traba.co
Job Seekers utilizing Traba’s other services have found jobs up to 60% faster than average and Traba expects similar results for job seekers who complete all the lesson modules of the online learning tool.

Making it easier to start and switch careers, Traba is redefining how people find, prepare for, and land jobs. Most people take a “Blast your resume and hope” approach to job search, but only 10% of people actually land jobs through online job boards like Monster, Indeed, and LinkedIn. Traba gives job seekers better access to job search preparation materials (through online courses on resumes, networking, and interview preparation) and mentors who can provide feedback on your experience, job search strategy, and insights into companies and industries. The results for job seekers have been shorter job searches, higher pay increases, and jobs that are a better fit for what job seekers actually want for their careers
