What is JobNow?
Powered by Brainfuse, JobNow provides live, interactive online help combined with online resources to help your patrons and students get a job. A "resume lab" and live, online job coaches help jobseekers strategically target suitable jobs and prepare and practice for job interviews. The Adult Learning Center provides foundational, career-enhancing skills to adult learners through test preparation (including the GED and the U.S. Citizenship Test) and features live, online academic tutors for writing assistance, computer literacy, and basic software assistance.
So many features - one low price!
If you're new to JobNow, or you're a current subscriber who hasn't looked at the product recently, you'll be surprised at all of the features that are included for your lowest-in-the-nation price. Your subscription includes:
Live Coaching - JobNow has always offered live coaching, but did you know that you can request a coach with expertise in your field? Coaches are available from 2pm - 11pm to provide live, personalized assistance with resumes, interviewing, and much more.
eParachuteTM - Inspired by Dick Bolles' best-selling career guide of all time What Color Is Your Parachute?, eParachute is a fun, interactive online resource designed for job-hunters at all stages in life:
SkillSurfer - Also known as the Learning Library, this module contains thousands of resources for test prep and boosting skills. Steer library users toward SkillSurfer - no more worries about test prep books getting out-of-date or never returned.
OptimalResume - Introduced last year, this feature-packed tool helps jobseekers easily write high impact resumes by working from a variety of interactive templates based on level of experience and academic areas.
