Shrinking Job Market Requires Smarter Tools for Job Seekers; Breakthrough Solution Helps People Manage Their Job-Search With Integrated Set of Tools, Templates and Advice

BOSTON, MA--(Marketwire - November 18, 2008) - Career Management Software, Inc., a provider of comprehensive online services for job-seekers, career coaches and outplacement firms, today announced the launch of its new online site www.VirtualJobCoach.com. The new site, available now, features an intuitive user dashboard that integrates a variety of job-search tools, processes, templates and expert advice. This 'control center' guides and focuses users' job searches, minimizes wasted effort and helps them secure desirable positions faster and easier.

"In this tough market, people really need to make the most of their search, so the notion of a control center that focuses the job seeker is crucial," says Cliff Hakim, career-expert and author of the best seller, "We Are All Self-Employed" and most recently "Rethinking Work" (www.rethinkingwork.com). "VirtualJobCoach will support you through the chaos in managing a complex process that is vital to your life."

VirtualJobCoach.com provides a comprehensive dashboard for job searchers allowing users to easily view and manage all aspects of their search including opportunities, resumes, meetings, contacts and action-items. It features a complete set of tools including: customizable job search and tag engine, dynamic resume builder and cover letter builder, contact database, position tracker, diary notes, calendar and to-do list.

The job-search engine allows users to automatically receive matching jobs in their VirtualJobCoach account and save specific listings for follow-up. Users have access to a cover-letter and resume builder to create custom documents that can be 'linked' to specific opportunities. Users can also dynamically change and apply different templates to the documents.

Networking is an important part of job-searching so VirtualJobCoach's contact management application is integrated with a flexible calendar application, along with email and cell-phone reminders, and diary notes. A to-do list tool ties it all together by allowing users to manage and track all of their activities throughout the process.

"VirtualJobCoach was designed to make job-searching easier and faster," said Will Robinson, principal at Career Management Software, Inc. "With an integrated set of tools, processes and expert advice in an intuitive dashboard, VirtualJobCoach removes a lot of the obstacles involved with today's complicated job-search."
