Looking for work is like being a salesman. Success is a result of your ability to sell your number 1 product – You –
to interested buyers
It's hard work, but
what if you could avoid it by having the buyers come looking for the product instead?
What if the jobs came to you?
Enter JobMobber Profiles, the next step in how you can help and get helped by the JobMob Community.
The concept is very simple. When looking for work, every job seeker discovers job leads and openings that don't match their personal objective yet may be meaningful for other JobMobbers. Your JobMobber Profile will help you tap into those leads and openings.
Here's how it works. Write a few paragraphs about yourself and send them in via the Contact Us form. If all goes well, soon after, I will post your JobMobber Profile here on the blog for everyone to see. The JobMob Community can then respond with job leads and openings for you in the comments beneath the profile.
What to Include
Your submission needs to be in concise, simple language to avoid confusion as much as possible.
The text should detail your dream job, relevant background and the pertinent achievements you're most proud of. Links to related projects that you've worked on are also welcome if your contribution is easily recognizable.
Who are JobMobber Profiles for?
Everyone in the JobMob Community, “the first blog community in Israel for jobseekers and jobfinders“.
- If you're a job seeker, your JobMobber Profile is your ticket into the hidden job market that the JobMob Community is aware of.
- If you're a jobfinder, this is your chance more than ever to reach out and make a difference in someone's life.
You can submit a profile if you:
- have been a JobMob email subscriber for at least 2 weeks prior to submission, or
- have linked to this announcement post from your blog.
Doing both is even better 🙂

The reasoning behind these criteria is that each profile will require some time of mine and the JobMob Community's and I'd like to avoid abuse as much as possible. Also, these criteria encourage more growth of the JobMob Community, which is one of the 2 keys to success below for this initiative.
2 Keys to Success
Your Participation – please watch out for the JobMobber Profiles and share any leads you've discovered. When you have no leads or tips for the latest JobMobber Profile, you should still speak up and say so in that profile's comments. Why? This is important because it shows the profiled JobMobber and everyone else that you made a sincere effort to help out and motivates them to do the same for you when your turn comes.
JobMob Community Growth – the more people read a JobMobber Profile, the greater the chance that of finding the one golden tip that will lead to the profiled JobMobber's next job. So…
