""Jobfish"" 2011 Quick Start Guide
Working with ""Jobfish"" makes working with a job board easier and faster with ""Jobfish"" than working with the job board directly. ""Jobfish"" supports two different types of job boards, HTML-based and XML/RSS-based, both seamlessly integrated, so you will notice very little difference.
{{image url="/Images/Products/Jobfish/Screenshots/Jobfish - Search for a New Job Wizard.JPG" width='400' alt="""Jobfish""" title="""Jobfish"" - Job Search Wizard"}}
To get started, start ""Jobfish"". Click on the "Search for a new job" navigation button on the left hand side directly below the calendar on the ""MySummary"" (Home) page.
You will be presented with the Job Search Wizard, as shown to the left. Select the job board desired. ""Jobfish"" will automatically launch the appropriate interface appropriate for the board. HTML based boards use the ‘""Jobfish"" Board Import Console’, whereas XML/RSS based job boards use the XML/RSS Job Search wizard. As a shortcut, you can launch the ""Jobfish"" Board Import Console, by going to the ""Jobfish"" menu on the Start Menu. You must use this wizard to access the XML/RSS based boards.
The following is the current list of HTML boards supported by ""Jobfish"".
{{image url="/Images/Products/Jobfish/Screenshots/Jobfish Board Import Console - Main.JPG" width='400' alt="""Jobfish""" title="""Jobfish"" - ""Jobfish"" Board Import Console"}}
In this example, ""CareerBuilder.com"" was selected. Once you select the option and click on the Next button, you will see ""Jobfish"" launch the ""Jobfish"" Board Import Console. Regardless of which job board you choose, you will see the main home page of the board displayed. In the screenshot to the left, "accounting" and "Los Angeles, CA" were entered into the main search fields, but you can enter whatever you want. The "Find Jobs" button was pressed, which yields the search results that you see.
Here is where ""Jobfish"" shines. Rather than clicking on each job opportunity and losing the search results or opening up a zillion browser windows, click on the "Load Search Results" button at the bottom. Before doing so, select how many search result pages you wish for ""Jobfish"" to load. In the example above, one page was selected to load, but you can select however many you want. Simply click on the up/down spin button to adjust the count. After clicking on the "Load Search Results" button, you will see the following parsed search results on the "View (Search Results) tab.
{{image url="/Images/Products/Jobfish/Screenshots/Jobfish Board Import Console - Import Step 2.JPG" width='400' alt="""Jobfish""" title="""Jobfish"" - ""Jobfish"" Board Import Console - Import Jobs"}}
There are some nifty features that you can use. ""Jobfish"" allows you to hide selected rows from future search results. Simply select the row(s) desired and click on the ‘Hide Selected Results from Future Searches’ button located in the lower left corner. You might have to adjust the splitter to see all the buttons. You can restore all previously hidden records by clicking on the small dropdown menu next to the button and select the appropriate option.
{{image url="/Images/Products/Jobfish/Screenshots/Jobfish Board Import Console - Import Step 1.JPG" width='400' alt="""Jobfish""" title="""Jobfish"" - ""Jobfish"" Board Import Console - View Search Results"}}
From here, there are two ways to proceed depending upon how you want to apply for the jobs. If you click directly on the Apply button on the website using either the side browser or the mini browser, you can click on the second column, "Did you apply for this job manually?" checkbox. You do not have to worry about losing the results with ""Jobfish"", as you would with using the job board with ""Jobfish"". Simply clicking on the next row brings up the next search result. You can also apply for the job later on, as will be discussed.
For jobs that you manually apply or for jobs that you want to import into your ""Jobfish"" database, check the box in the first column for that job opportunity labeled "Are you interested in this job?" After you check the box on the jobs that you want to store, as shown, click on the "Import Jobs" button.
{{image url="/Images/Products/Jobfish/Screenshots/Jobfish Board Import Console - Import Step 1.JPG" width='400' alt="""Jobfish""" title="""Jobfish"" - ""Jobfish"" Board Import Console - View Search Results"}}
{{image url="/Images/Products/Jobfish/Screenshots/Jobfish Board Import Console - Import Step 3.JPG" width='400' alt="""Jobfish""" title="""Jobfish"" - ""Jobfish"" Board Import Console - Posting Details"}}
In the example shown, three (3) jobs were imported into the ""Jobfish"" database. The import process completed and you will see the status of the search in the third column, "Job in ""Jobfish"" Database". The text will show "Yes, Job ID [#]," where # will show the ID for the job imported. In the example, the IDs are 59, 60, and 61.
If you imported the jobs using the single method, ignore the "Import the Selected Jobs into Your ""Jobfish"" Database", as the jobs are already imported. You might have to adjust the splitter bar to full see the buttons.
The reason for the import button and the ‘Update Cell’ is that ""Jobfish"" allows users to edit the data prior to the import process. Many times it is easier to edit the results in a tabular grid and then do the import. If you wish to edit the data first before the physical creation of the job records in the ""Jobfish"" database, alter the steps that you took on the "View (Search Results) tab. Rather than click on the import button as you did, click on the dropdown menu to the side of the button. Click on the "Extract Job Details Only" menu item. ""Jobfish"" will then extract the data but will not do the import step. You can then press the import button on the third tab after you massage the data. Another reason for the button is that if for any reason one of the jobs does not import, you can fix the offending issue and then press the import button to try again for that job. Make sure to have checks in the first checkbox for only those jobs that you want to import and did not already import.
One reason that you might want to edit the records manually prior to importing them is to set the contact information or set any details of a job that might belong in one of the parsed fields available but was located in the description, so not readily parsed by ""Jobfish"".
If you had ""Jobfish"" open at the same time that you did the import into ""Jobfish"" using the ""Jobfish"" Board Import Console, the job list inside of ""Jobfish"" (""MyJobs"" | ""MyJobs"") will not show the jobs. That is because the list needs to be refreshed. Click on the refresh button directly above the table.
The following is a list of the current XML/RSS job boards supported by ""Jobfish"".
{{image url="/Images/Products/Jobfish/Screenshots/Jobfish - XMLRSS - Wizard Options.JPG" width='400' alt="""Jobfish""" title="""Jobfish"" - XML/RSS Jobs - Configuration Options"}}
If you select one of these boards, ""Jobfish"" will display the wizard indicated. You can specify the maximum number of job postings that you wish to download, the job board of interest (or all), search options, and other settings.
{{image url="/Images/Products/Jobfish/Screenshots/Jobfish - XMLRSS - Search Results.JPG" width='400' alt="""Jobfish""" title="""Jobfish"" - XML/RSS Jobs - View Results"}}
Unlike HTML boards, where ""Jobfish"" captures the entire posting and then makes a best attempt to parse and present the data, XML/RSS boards by their nature provide limited feeds. Most, if not all, XML/RSS based job boards provide partial descriptions in their feed and expect that users click on the details button to view the full posting. ""Jobfish"" does attempt to solve this problem for the user, though. When looking at the final results in the preview dialog, ""Jobfish"" displays the actual posting.
{{image url="/Images/Products/Jobfish/Screenshots/Jobfish - XMLRSS - Wizard.JPG" width='400' alt="""Jobfish""" title="""Jobfish"" - XML/RSS Jobs - Wizard"}}
The screen to the right shows the search results. In this example 34 job postings of the 45 were downloaded. ""Jobfish"" did some post filtering based upon the search options specified to create the final list shown.
{{image url="/Images/Products/Jobfish/Screenshots/Jobfish - XMLRSS - Job Postings Preview.JPG" width='400' alt="""Jobfish""" title="""Jobfish"" - XML/RSS Jobs - Preview"}}
""Jobfish"" displays the resultant list in tabular format, but the easiest way to look at the results is to click on the preview toolbar button. That is the second button from the left directly above the table. You will be presented with the dialog shown.
{{image url="/Images/Products/Jobfish/Screenshots/Jobfish - Main Job List.JPG" width='400' alt="""Jobfish""" title="""Jobfish"" - XML/RSS Jobs - ""MyJobs"" Job List"}}
There are several key elements to note in the dialog. The first is the scrollbar at the bottom left. You can preview the different listings by moving the scrollbar. ""Jobfish"" indicates the current listing to the right of the scrollbar and the total number of listings directly above.
If you want to import any of the jobs, simply check the box, labeled "Check to mark for import" located directly above the Ok and Cancel buttons. You will see the total number of records that you selected for import in the field directly above the scrollbar labeled "To Import." You can also select jobs to import by checking the box on the main search results table next to the job opportunity indicated. To start the import process, click on the "Imported selected jobs into ""Jobfish""" toolbar button located directly above the main search results.
{{image url="/Images/Products/Jobfish/Screenshots/Jobfish - Job Record Properties.JPG" width='400' alt="""Jobfish""" title="""Jobfish"" - Job Recod Properties"}}
The screenshot above shows the main job list inside of ""Jobfish"". If you are busy importing jobs and then go to this screen, you may not see your imported jobs listed. Do not worry. It is there in your database. Simply click on the refresh toolbar button located directly above the table.
{{image url="/Images/Products/Jobfish/Screenshots/Jobfish - Recruiters.JPG" width='400' alt="""Jobfish""" title="""Jobfish"" - Recruiters"}}
The image to the left shows the recruiter / networking list inside of ""Jobfish"". ""Jobfish"" offers pretty much the same features and task options for employers. As such, this quick start guide will not cover employers.
A very useful feature of ""Jobfish"" in this area is the ‘Job List’ option. Simply select the recruiter or employer of interest, select job list from either the context menu or the toolbar button and ""Jobfish"" will show you a list of jobs associated with this company. You will see the contact person in the resultant table. Simply click on the job of interest and click on the properties button. ""Jobfish"" will immediately open up the job record.
Another feature available is sending out multiple customized emails to your contacts, employment and recruitment based. Enter the body of the email in the Tools | Options | Recruiter tab or have ""Jobfish"" use your cover letter as the boilerplate with each salutation customized. ""Jobfish"" can send out many customized, also known as mail merge, emails complete with attached presentation packages.
""Jobfish"" provides a number of different scheduling and tracking options. The Task List available off of the ""MyWorkspace"" area. You can enter tasks easily, simply by entering the task directly on the form or clicking on the new task toolbar button and entering the information on an easy to use form.
""Jobfish"" displays upcoming tasks, interactions, and interviews directly on the ""MySummary"" page. The ""MySummary"" page is your home page, where you can get a quick overview of your job search, quickly and easily.
An interaction is any email, phone call, instant message, or other form of communication that you wish to log. ""Jobfish"" will associate all interactions and interviews with a job record. In that way, you can see all information related to a job opportunity. Knowing the history is important.
{{image url="/Images/Products/Jobfish/Screenshots/Jobfish - Presentation Package Wizard.JPG" width='400' alt="""Jobfish""" title="""Jobfish"" - Presentation Package"}}
No matter what your profession, more than likely you will have a few different styles of your resume, one tailored for a certain aspect. Each resume might have associated with it certain portfolio pieces that you want to share, a uniquely customized cover letter, an image, and maybe other attachments. ""Jobfish"" makes it easy to create presentation packages. A presentation package is an ensemble, a collective term used to denote your resume, cover letter, image, and other possible attachments and give them a unique name.
{{image url="/Images/Products/Jobfish/Screenshots/Jobfish - Email.JPG" width='400' alt="""Jobfish""" title="""Jobfish"" - Send an Email"}}
To associate a job record with a presentation package, you can use the "Attach a resume package to a job record" from the "Work with your resume and cover letter" main navigation menu system. ""Jobfish"" will display a list of job records. Select the job record in question, and ""Jobfish"" will take care of the rest. Alternatively, you can open up the job record and select the presentation package from the dropdown list.
Once you have a presentation package to a job and you have an email address attached to either an employer or recruitment contact for the job record, you can apply for the job via email directly from within ""Jobfish"". Open up the job record, go to either the employer or recruiter property, and select the contact. From there, click the email contact button on the toolbar directly above the contact list. ""Jobfish"" will display the screen shown.
""Jobfish"" will keep a copy of the email attached to the job record shown as an interaction. ""Jobfish"" will also update the resume sent and date resume sent date automatically, if this email is the first one sent for the job record for your convenience.
""Jobfish"" has a built-in SMTP server that it can use, but sometimes especially with hotmail and other free accounts sending emails can be problematic. In those cases enter the SMTP POP3 server information for your email address. Go to the Tools | Options | Email dialog. Be sure to take off the checkmark that says use built-in SMTP server first checkbox. Also, make sure to select this email address as the default.
To apply for a job, click on the "Apply to a job in your ""Jobfish"" database" directly from within ""Jobfish"". ""Jobfish"" will display a list of job records. Select the job record that you want to apply to. From here one of three things will happen. If you have only the built-in apply for job URL extracted from the job posting associated with the job record, ""Jobfish"" will open up an external browser to the apply-to page for you to apply to the job. If you have only an email address associated with the job record, ""Jobfish"" will display the email interface for you to apply for the job opportunity this way. ""Jobfish"" naturally keeps track of the email as an interaction. If you have both a URL and an email address, ""Jobfish"" will ask you wish method you want to use to apply for the job and then act accordingly. ""Jobfish"" will update the resume sent and date resume sent fields inside the job record upon you successfully applying for the job.
{{image url="/Images/Products/Jobfish/Screenshots/Jobfish - Select Skin.JPG" width='400' alt="""Jobfish""" title="""Jobfish"" - Change Skin"}}
No matter how good an application is, if you use the application you want it to look good. ""Jobfish"" is skinnable in one of several different ways. You can select a different outer skin by clicking on the inner most bubble in the upper right corner of the application to the lef of the minimize button. That displays the change skin dialog. There are numerous skins available for you to choose.
For the other part of ""Jobfish"", you can select one of several different themes. ""Jobfish"" automatically defaults to the Microsoft Office 2007 theme, but you can select one of several, simply by clicking on the desired theme on the main toolbar or under by going to the Tools | Themes menu. The Tools menu offers other customization options.
6 Why Use ""Jobfish""?
Searching for a job is a tedious process, and using the job boards is even more tedious, if not turning off. ""Jobfish"" is a better interface to job boards then using them directly. Even if you just apply for the jobs directly through the board, job boards keep reposting the same data, make viewing results difficult, and applying not that easy. ""Jobfish"" simplifies the process and takes away nothing of the original experience. ""Jobfish"" adds to it.
Working with recruitment firms is also easy with ""Jobfish"". You can use ""Jobfish"" even for your networking contacts. Keep track of when you have to call them and the last time that the two of you talked. Keep track of your job tasks and things that recruiters might want you to do.
Keeping track of multiple resumes is also easier with ""Jobfish"". Creating presentation packages and sending them out without gathering them each and every time is now simpler with ""Jobfish"", be it one at a time or in mass using the mail merge feature in ""Jobfish"".
""Jobfish"" gives you reports, be it to file for EDD, or for yourself. There are a number of reports directly accessible from the ""MySummary"" (Home) page.
{{image url="/Images/Products/Jobfish/Screenshots/Jobfish - Database Console.JPG" width='400' alt="""Jobfish""" title="""Jobfish"" - ""Jobfish"" Database Console"}}
For advanced users, ""Jobfish"" provides raw access to the underlying SQL database using the ""Jobfish"" Database Console. On the View tab, you can select the table of interest. Simply select the rows that you want, copy the contents to the clipboard (or export the table to a CSV file format), and you then into whatever application you choose. If you only want some rows or the most recent, simply sort the table by the column desired, select the rows of interest, and copy the information to the clipboard.

""JobFish"" 2010 Quick Start Guide
Working with ""JobFish"" makes working with a job board easier and faster with ""JobFish"" than working with the job board directly. ""JobFish"" supports two different types of job boards, HTML-based and XML/RSS-based, both seamlessly integrated, so you will notice very little difference.
{{image url="/Images/Products/JobFish/Screenshots/JobFish - Search for a New Job Wizard.JPG" width='400' alt="""JobFish""" title="""JobFish"" - Job Search Wizard"}}

As a shortcut, you can launch the ""JobFish"" Board Import Console, by going to the ""JobFish"" menu on the Start Menu. You must use this wizard to access the XML/RSS based boards.
The following is the current list of HTML boards supported by ""JobFish"".
{{image url="/Images/Products/JobFish/Screenshots/JobFish Board Import Console - Main.JPG" width='400' alt="""JobFish""" title="""JobFish"" - ""JobFish"" Board Import Console"}}
In this example, ""CareerBuilder.com"" was selected. Once you select the option and click on the Next button, you will see ""JobFish"" launch the ""JobFish"" Board Import Console.

There are some nifty features that you can use. ""JobFish"" allows you to hide selected rows from future search results. Simply select the row(s) desired and click on the ‘Hide Selected Results from Future Searches’ button located in the lower left corner. You might have to adjust the splitter to see all the buttons.

After you check the box on the jobs that you want to store, as shown, click on the "Import Jobs" button.
{{image url="/Images/Products/JobFish/Screenshots/JobFish Board Import Console - Import Step 1.JPG" width='400' alt="""JobFish""" title="""JobFish"" - ""JobFish"" Board Import Console - View Search Results"}}
{{image url="/Images/Products/JobFish/Screenshots/JobFish Board Import Console - Import Step 3.JPG" width='400' alt="""JobFish""" title="""JobFish"" - ""JobFish"" Board Import Console - Posting Details"}}
In the example shown, three (3) jobs were imported into the ""JobFish"" database. The import process completed and you will see the status of the search in the third column, "Job in ""JobFish"" Database". The text will show "Yes, Job ID [#]," where # will show the ID for the job imported. In the example, the IDs are 59, 60, and 61.
If you imported the jobs using the single method, ignore the "Import the Selected Jobs into Your ""JobFish"" Database", as the jobs are already imported. You might have to adjust the splitter bar to full see the buttons.
The reason for the import button and the ‘Update Cell’ is that ""JobFish"" allows users to edit the data prior to the import process.

One reason that you might want to edit the records manually prior to importing them is to set the contact information or set any details of a job that might belong in one of the parsed fields available but was located in the description, so not readily parsed by ""JobFish"".
If you had ""JobFish"" open at the same time that you did the import into ""JobFish"" using the ""JobFish"" Board Import Console, the job list inside of ""JobFish"" (""MyJobs"" | ""MyJobs"") will not show the jobs. That is because the list needs to be refreshed. Click on the refresh button directly above the table.
The following is a list of the current XML/RSS job boards supported by ""JobFish"".
{{image url="/Images/Products/JobFish/Screenshots/JobFish - XMLRSS - Wizard Options.JPG" width='400' alt="""JobFish""" title="""JobFish"" - XML/RSS Jobs - Configuration Options"}}
If you select one of these boards, ""JobFish"" will display the wizard indicated. You can specify the maximum number of job postings that you wish to download, the job board of interest (or all), search options, and other settings.
{{image url="/Images/Products/JobFish/Screenshots/JobFish - XMLRSS - Search Results.JPG" width='400' alt="""JobFish""" title="""JobFish"" - XML/RSS Jobs - View Results"}}
Unlike HTML boards, where ""JobFish"" captures the entire posting and then makes a best attempt to parse and present the data, XML/RSS boards by their nature provide limited feeds. Most, if not all, XML/RSS based job boards provide partial descriptions in their feed and expect that users click on the details button to view the full posting. ""JobFish"" does attempt to solve this problem for the user, though. When looking at the final results in the preview dialog, ""JobFish"" displays the actual posting.
{{image url="/Images/Products/JobFish/Screenshots/JobFish - XMLRSS - Wizard.JPG" width='400' alt="""JobFish""" title="""JobFish"" - XML/RSS Jobs - Wizard"}}
The screen to the right shows the search results. In this example 34 job postings of the 45 were downloaded. ""JobFish"" did some post filtering based upon the search options specified to create the final list shown.
{{image url="/Images/Products/JobFish/Screenshots/JobFish - XMLRSS - Job Postings Preview.JPG" width='400' alt="""JobFish""" title="""JobFish"" - XML/RSS Jobs - Preview"}}
""JobFish"" displays the resultant list in tabular format, but the easiest way to look at the results is to click on the preview toolbar button. That is the second button from the left directly above the table. You will be presented with the dialog shown.
{{image url="/Images/Products/JobFish/Screenshots/JobFish - Main Job List.JPG" width='400' alt="""JobFish""" title="""JobFish"" - XML/RSS Jobs - ""MyJobs"" Job List"}}
There are several key elements to note in the dialog. The first is the scrollbar at the bottom left. You can preview the different listings by moving the scrollbar. ""JobFish"" indicates the current listing to the right of the scrollbar and the total number of listings directly above.
If you want to import any of the jobs, simply check the box, labeled "Check to mark for import" located directly above the Ok and Cancel buttons. You will see the total number of records that you selected for import in the field directly above the scrollbar labeled "To Import." You can also select jobs to import by checking the box on the main search results table next to the job opportunity indicated. To start the import process, click on the "Imported selected jobs into ""JobFish""" toolbar button located directly above the main search results.
{{image url="/Images/Products/JobFish/Screenshots/JobFish - Job Record Properties.JPG" width='400' alt="""JobFish""" title="""JobFish"" - Job Recod Properties"}}
The screenshot above shows the main job list inside of ""JobFish"". If you are busy importing jobs and then go to this screen, you may not see your imported jobs listed. Do not worry. It is there in your database. Simply click on the refresh toolbar button located directly above the table.
{{image url="/Images/Products/JobFish/Screenshots/JobFish - Recruiters.JPG" width='400' alt="""JobFish""" title="""JobFish"" - Recruiters"}}
The image to the left shows the recruiter / networking list inside of ""JobFish"". ""JobFish"" offers pretty much the same features and task options for employers. As such, this quick start guide will not cover employers.
A very useful feature of ""JobFish"" in this area is the ‘Job List’ option. Simply select the recruiter or employer of interest, select job list from either the context menu or the toolbar button and ""JobFish"" will show you a list of jobs associated with this company. You will see the contact person in the resultant table. Simply click on the job of interest and click on the properties button. ""JobFish"" will immediately open up the job record.
Another feature available is sending out multiple customized emails to your contacts, employment and recruitment based. Enter the body of the email in the Tools | Options | Recruiter tab or have ""JobFish"" use your cover letter as the boilerplate with each salutation customized. ""JobFish"" can send out many customized, also known as mail merge, emails complete with attached presentation packages.
""JobFish"" provides a number of different scheduling and tracking options. The Task List available off of the ""MyWorkspace"" area. You can enter tasks easily, simply by entering the task directly on the form or clicking on the new task toolbar button and entering the information on an easy to use form.
""JobFish"" displays upcoming tasks, interactions, and interviews directly on the ""MySummary"" page. The ""MySummary"" page is your home page, where you can get a quick overview of your job search, quickly and easily.
An interaction is any email, phone call, instant message, or other form of communication that you wish to log. ""JobFish"" will associate all interactions and interviews with a job record. In that way, you can see all information related to a job opportunity. Knowing the history is important.
{{image url="/Images/Products/JobFish/Screenshots/JobFish - Presentation Package Wizard.JPG" width='400' alt="""JobFish""" title="""JobFish"" - Presentation Package"}}
No matter what your profession, more than likely you will have a few different styles of your resume, one tailored for a certain aspect. Each resume might have associated with it certain portfolio pieces that you want to share, a uniquely customized cover letter, an image, and maybe other attachments. ""JobFish"" makes it easy to create presentation packages. A presentation package is an ensemble, a collective term used to denote your resume, cover letter, image, and other possible attachments and give them a unique name.
{{image url="/Images/Products/JobFish/Screenshots/JobFish - Email.JPG" width='400' alt="""JobFish""" title="""JobFish"" - Send an Email"}}
To associate a job record with a presentation package, you can use the "Attach a resume package to a job record" from the "Work with your resume and cover letter" main navigation menu system. ""JobFish"" will display a list of job records. Select the job record in question, and ""JobFish"" will take care of the rest. Alternatively, you can open up the job record and select the presentation package from the dropdown list.
Once you have a presentation package to a job and you have an email address attached to either an employer or recruitment contact for the job record, you can apply for the job via email directly from within ""JobFish"". Open up the job record, go to either the employer or recruiter property, and select the contact. From there, click the email contact button on the toolbar directly above the contact list. ""JobFish"" will display the screen shown.
""JobFish"" will keep a copy of the email attached to the job record shown as an interaction. ""JobFish"" will also update the resume sent and date resume sent date automatically, if this email is the first one sent for the job record for your convenience.
""JobFish"" has a built-in SMTP server that it can use, but sometimes especially with hotmail and other free accounts sending emails can be problematic. In those cases enter the SMTP POP3 server information for your email address. Go to the Tools | Options | Email dialog. Be sure to take off the checkmark that says use built-in SMTP server first checkbox. Also, make sure to select this email address as the default.
To apply for a job, click on the "Apply to a job in your ""JobFish"" database" directly from within ""JobFish"". ""JobFish"" will display a list of job records. Select the job record that you want to apply to. From here one of three things will happen. If you have only the built-in apply for job URL extracted from the job posting associated with the job record, ""JobFish"" will open up an external browser to the apply-to page for you to apply to the job. If you have only an email address associated with the job record, ""JobFish"" will display the email interface for you to apply for the job opportunity this way. ""JobFish"" naturally keeps track of the email as an interaction. If you have both a URL and an email address, ""JobFish"" will ask you wish method you want to use to apply for the job and then act accordingly. ""JobFish"" will update the resume sent and date resume sent fields inside the job record upon you successfully applying for the job.

No matter how good an application is, if you use the application you want it to look good. ""JobFish"" is skinnable in one of several different ways. You can select a different outer skin by clicking on the inner most bubble in the upper right corner of the application to the lef of the minimize button. That displays the change skin dialog. There are numerous skins available for you to choose.
For the other part of ""JobFish"", you can select one of several different themes. ""JobFish"" automatically defaults to the Microsoft Office 2007 theme, but you can select one of several, simply by clicking on the desired theme on the main toolbar or under by going to the Tools | Themes menu. The Tools menu offers other customization options.
6 Why Use ""JobFish""?
Searching for a job is a tedious process, and using the job boards is even more tedious, if not turning off. ""JobFish"" is a better interface to job boards then using them directly. Even if you just apply for the jobs directly through the board, job boards keep reposting the same data, make viewing results difficult, and applying not that easy. ""JobFish"" simplifies the process and takes away nothing of the original experience. ""JobFish"" adds to it.
Working with recruitment firms is also easy with ""JobFish"". You can use ""JobFish"" even for your networking contacts. Keep track of when you have to call them and the last time that the two of you talked. Keep track of your job tasks and things that recruiters might want you to do.
Keeping track of multiple resumes is also easier with ""JobFish"". Creating presentation packages and sending them out without gathering them each and every time is now simpler with ""JobFish"", be it one at a time or in mass using the mail merge feature in ""JobFish"".
""JobFish"" gives you reports, be it to file for EDD, or for yourself. There are a number of reports directly accessible from the ""MySummary"" (Home) page.
{{image url="/Images/Products/JobFish/Screenshots/JobFish - Database Console.JPG" width='400' alt="""JobFish""" title="""JobFish"" - ""JobFish"" Database Console"}}
For advanced users, ""JobFish"" provides raw access to the underlying SQL database using the ""JobFish"" Database Console. On the View tab, you can select the table of interest. Simply select the rows that you want, copy the contents to the clipboard (or export the table to a CSV file format), and you then into whatever application you choose. If you only want some rows or the most recent, simply sort the table by the column desired, select the rows of interest, and copy the information to the clipboard.

""JobFish"" 2010 Quick Start Guide
Working with ""JobFish"" makes working with a job board easier and faster with ""JobFish"" than working with the job board directly. ""JobFish"" supports two different types of job boards, HTML-based and XML/RSS-based, both seamlessly integrated, so you will notice very little difference.
{{image url="/Images/Products/""JobFish""/Screenshots/""JobFish"" - Search for a New Job Wizard.JPG" width='400' alt="""JobFish""" title="""JobFish"" - Job Search Wizard"}}
To get started, start ""JobFish"". Click on the "Search for a new job" navigation button on the left hand side directly below the calendar on the MySummary (Home) page.
You will be presented with the Job Search Wizard, as shown to the left. Select the job board desired. ""JobFish"" will automatically launch the appropriate interface appropriate for the board. HTML based boards use the ‘""JobFish"" Board Import Console’, whereas XML/RSS based job boards use the XML/RSS Job Search wizard. As a shortcut, you can launch the ""JobFish"" Board Import Console, by going to the ""JobFish"" menu on the Start Menu. You must use this wizard to access the XML/RSS based boards.
The following is the current list of HTML boards supported by ""JobFish"".
""CareerBuilder.com""
""CraigsList.com""
""Dice.com""
""HotJobs.com""
""JobALot.com""
{{image url="/Images/Products/""JobFish""/Screenshots/""JobFish"" Board Import Console - Main.JPG" width='400' alt="""JobFish""" title="""JobFish"" - ""JobFish"" Board Import Console"}}
In this example, CareerBuilder.com was selected. Once you select the option and click on the Next button, you will see ""JobFish"" launch the ""JobFish"" Board Import Console. Regardless of which job board you choose, you will see the main home page of the board displayed. In the screenshot to the left, "accounting" and "Los Angeles, CA" were entered into the main search fields, but you can enter whatever you want. The "Find Jobs" button was pressed, which yields the search results that you see.
Here is where ""JobFish"" shines. Rather than clicking on each job opportunity and losing the search results or opening up a zillion browser windows, click on the "Load Search Results" button at the bottom. Before doing so, select how many search result pages you wish for ""JobFish"" to load. In the example above, one page was selected to load, but you can select however many you want. Simply click on the up/down spin button to adjust the count. After clicking on the "Load Search Results" button, you will see the following parsed search results on the "View (Search Results) tab.
{{image url="/Images/Products/""JobFish""/Screenshots/""JobFish"" Board Import Console - Import Step 2.JPG" width='400' alt="""JobFish""" title="""JobFish"" - ""JobFish"" Board Import Console - Import Jobs"}}
There are some nifty features that you can use. ""JobFish"" allows you to hide selected rows from future search results. Simply select the row(s) desired and click on the ‘Hide Selected Results from Future Searches’ button located in the lower left corner. You might have to adjust the splitter to see all the buttons. You can restore all previously hidden records by clicking on the small dropdown menu next to the button and select the appropriate option.
{{image url="/Images/Products/""JobFish""/Screenshots/""JobFish"" Board Import Console - Import Step 1.JPG" width='400' alt="""JobFish""" title="""JobFish"" - ""JobFish"" Board Import Console - View Search Results"}}
From here, there are two ways to proceed depending upon how you want to apply for the jobs. If you click directly on the Apply button on the website using either the side browser or the mini browser, you can click on the second column, "Did you apply for this job manually?" checkbox. You do not have to worry about losing the results with ""JobFish"", as you would with using the job board with ""JobFish"". Simply clicking on the next row brings up the next search result. You can also apply for the job later on, as will be discussed.
For jobs that you manually apply or for jobs that you want to import into your ""JobFish"" database, check the box in the first column for that job opportunity labeled "Are you interested in this job?" After you check the box on the jobs that you want to store, as shown, click on the "Import Jobs" button.
{{image url="/Images/Products/""JobFish""/Screenshots/""JobFish"" Board Import Console - Import Step 1.JPG" width='400' alt="""JobFish""" title="""JobFish"" - ""JobFish"" Board Import Console - View Search Results"}}
{{image url="/Images/Products/""JobFish""/Screenshots/""JobFish"" Board Import Console - Import Step 3.JPG" width='400' alt="""JobFish""" title="""JobFish"" - ""JobFish"" Board Import Console - Posting Details"}}
In the example shown, three (3) jobs were imported into the ""JobFish"" database. The import process completed and you will see the status of the search in the third column, "Job in ""JobFish"" Database". The text will show "Yes, Job ID [#]," where # will show the ID for the job imported. In the example, the IDs are 59, 60, and 61.
If you imported the jobs using the single method, ignore the "Import the Selected Jobs into Your ""JobFish"" Database", as the jobs are already imported. You might have to adjust the splitter bar to full see the buttons.
The reason for the import button and the ‘Update Cell’ is that ""JobFish"" allows users to edit the data prior to the import process. Many times it is easier to edit the results in a tabular grid and then do the import. If you wish to edit the data first before the physical creation of the job records in the ""JobFish"" database, alter the steps that you took on the "View (Search Results) tab. Rather than click on the import button as you did, click on the dropdown menu to the side of the button. Click on the "Extract Job Details Only" menu item. ""JobFish"" will then extract the data but will not do the import step. You can then press the import button on the third tab after you massage the data. Another reason for the button is that if for any reason one of the jobs does not import, you can fix the offending issue and then press the import button to try again for that job. Make sure to have checks in the first checkbox for only those jobs that you want to import and did not already import.
One reason that you might want to edit the records manually prior to importing them is to set the contact information or set any details of a job that might belong in one of the parsed fields available but was located in the description, so not readily parsed by ""JobFish"".
If you had ""JobFish"" open at the same time that you did the import into ""JobFish"" using the ""JobFish"" Board Import Console, the job list inside of ""JobFish"" (MyJobs | MyJobs) will not show the jobs. That is because the list needs to be refreshed. Click on the refresh button directly above the table.
The following is a list of the current XML/RSS job boards supported by ""JobFish"".
{{image url="/Images/Products/""JobFish""/Screenshots/""JobFish"" - XMLRSS - Wizard Options.JPG" width='400' alt="""JobFish""" title="""JobFish"" - XML/RSS Jobs - Configuration Options"}}
If you select one of these boards, ""JobFish"" will display the wizard indicated. You can specify the maximum number of job postings that you wish to download, the job board of interest (or all), search options, and other settings.
{{image url="/Images/Products/""JobFish""/Screenshots/""JobFish"" - XMLRSS - Search Results.JPG" width='400' alt="""JobFish""" title="""JobFish"" - XML/RSS Jobs - View Results"}}
Unlike HTML boards, where ""JobFish"" captures the entire posting and then makes a best attempt to parse and present the data, XML/RSS boards by their nature provide limited feeds. Most, if not all, XML/RSS based job boards provide partial descriptions in their feed and expect that users click on the details button to view the full posting. ""JobFish"" does attempt to solve this problem for the user, though. When looking at the final results in the preview dialog, ""JobFish"" displays the actual posting.
{{image url="/Images/Products/""JobFish""/Screenshots/""JobFish"" - XMLRSS - Wizard.JPG" width='400' alt="""JobFish""" title="""JobFish"" - XML/RSS Jobs - Wizard"}}
The screen to the right shows the search results. In this example 34 job postings of the 45 were downloaded. ""JobFish"" did some post filtering based upon the search options specified to create the final list shown.
{{image url="/Images/Products/""JobFish""/Screenshots/""JobFish"" - XMLRSS - Job Postings Preview.JPG" width='400' alt="""JobFish""" title="""JobFish"" - XML/RSS Jobs - Preview"}}
""JobFish"" displays the resultant list in tabular format, but the easiest way to look at the results is to click on the preview toolbar button. That is the second button from the left directly above the table. You will be presented with the dialog shown.
{{image url="/Images/Products/""JobFish""/Screenshots/""JobFish"" - Main Job List.JPG" width='400' alt="""JobFish""" title="""JobFish"" - XML/RSS Jobs - MyJobs Job List"}}
There are several key elements to note in the dialog. The first is the scrollbar at the bottom left. You can preview the different listings by moving the scrollbar. ""JobFish"" indicates the current listing to the right of the scrollbar and the total number of listings directly above.
If you want to import any of the jobs, simply check the box, labeled "Check to mark for import" located directly above the Ok and Cancel buttons. You will see the total number of records that you selected for import in the field directly above the scrollbar labeled "To Import." You can also select jobs to import by checking the box on the main search results table next to the job opportunity indicated. To start the import process, click on the "Imported selected jobs into ""JobFish""" toolbar button located directly above the main search results.
{{image url="/Images/Products/""JobFish""/Screenshots/""JobFish"" - Job Record Properties.JPG" width='400' alt="""JobFish""" title="""JobFish"" - Job Recod Properties"}}
The screenshot above shows the main job list inside of ""JobFish"". If you are busy importing jobs and then go to this screen, you may not see your imported jobs listed. Do not worry. It is there in your database. Simply click on the refresh toolbar button located directly above the table.
{{image url="/Images/Products/""JobFish""/Screenshots/""JobFish"" - Recruiters.JPG" width='400' alt="""JobFish""" title="""JobFish"" - Recruiters"}}
The image to the left shows the recruiter / networking list inside of ""JobFish"". ""JobFish"" offers pretty much the same features and task options for employers. As such, this quick start guide will not cover employers.
A very useful feature of ""JobFish"" in this area is the ‘Job List’ option. Simply select the recruiter or employer of interest, select job list from either the context menu or the toolbar button and ""JobFish"" will show you a list of jobs associated with this company. You will see the contact person in the resultant table. Simply click on the job of interest and click on the properties button. ""JobFish"" will immediately open up the job record.
Another feature available is sending out multiple customized emails to your contacts, employment and recruitment based. Enter the body of the email in the Tools | Options | Recruiter tab or have ""JobFish"" use your cover letter as the boilerplate with each salutation customized. ""JobFish"" can send out many customized, also known as mail merge, emails complete with attached presentation packages.
""JobFish"" provides a number of different scheduling and tracking options. The Task List available off of the MyWorkspace area. You can enter tasks easily, simply by entering the task directly on the form or clicking on the new task toolbar button and entering the information on an easy to use form.
""JobFish"" displays upcoming tasks, interactions, and interviews directly on the MySummary page. The MySummary page is your home page, where you can get a quick overview of your job search, quickly and easily.
An interaction is any email, phone call, instant message, or other form of communication that you wish to log. ""JobFish"" will associate all interactions and interviews with a job record. In that way, you can see all information related to a job opportunity. Knowing the history is important.
{{image url="/Images/Products/""JobFish""/Screenshots/""JobFish"" - Presentation Package Wizard.JPG" width='400' alt="""JobFish""" title="""JobFish"" - Presentation Package"}}
No matter what your profession, more than likely you will have a few different styles of your resume, one tailored for a certain aspect. Each resume might have associated with it certain portfolio pieces that you want to share, a uniquely customized cover letter, an image, and maybe other attachments. ""JobFish"" makes it easy to create presentation packages. A presentation package is an ensemble, a collective term used to denote your resume, cover letter, image, and other possible attachments and give them a unique name.
{{image url="/Images/Products/""JobFish""/Screenshots/""JobFish"" - Email.JPG" width='400' alt="""JobFish""" title="""JobFish"" - Send an Email"}}
To associate a job record with a presentation package, you can use the "Attach a resume package to a job record" from the "Work with your resume and cover letter" main navigation menu system. ""JobFish"" will display a list of job records. Select the job record in question, and ""JobFish"" will take care of the rest. Alternatively, you can open up the job record and select the presentation package from the dropdown list.
Once you have a presentation package to a job and you have an email address attached to either an employer or recruitment contact for the job record, you can apply for the job via email directly from within ""JobFish"". Open up the job record, go to either the employer or recruiter property, and select the contact. From there, click the email contact button on the toolbar directly above the contact list. ""JobFish"" will display the screen shown.
""JobFish"" will keep a copy of the email attached to the job record shown as an interaction. ""JobFish"" will also update the resume sent and date resume sent date automatically, if this email is the first one sent for the job record for your convenience.
""JobFish"" has a built-in SMTP server that it can use, but sometimes especially with hotmail and other free accounts sending emails can be problematic. In those cases enter the SMTP POP3 server information for your email address. Go to the Tools | Options | Email dialog. Be sure to take off the checkmark that says use built-in SMTP server first checkbox. Also, make sure to select this email address as the default.
To apply for a job, click on the "Apply to a job in your ""JobFish"" database" directly from within ""JobFish"". ""JobFish"" will display a list of job records. Select the job record that you want to apply to. From here one of three things will happen. If you have only the built-in apply for job URL extracted from the job posting associated with the job record, ""JobFish"" will open up an external browser to the apply-to page for you to apply to the job. If you have only an email address associated with the job record, ""JobFish"" will display the email interface for you to apply for the job opportunity this way. ""JobFish"" naturally keeps track of the email as an interaction. If you have both a URL and an email address, ""JobFish"" will ask you wish method you want to use to apply for the job and then act accordingly. ""JobFish"" will update the resume sent and date resume sent fields inside the job record upon you successfully applying for the job.

No matter how good an application is, if you use the application you want it to look good. ""JobFish"" is skinnable in one of several different ways. You can select a different outer skin by clicking on the inner most bubble in the upper right corner of the application to the lef of the minimize button. That displays the change skin dialog. There are numerous skins available for you to choose.
For the other part of ""JobFish"", you can select one of several different themes. ""JobFish"" automatically defaults to the Microsoft Office 2007 theme, but you can select one of several, simply by clicking on the desired theme on the main toolbar or under by going to the Tools | Themes menu. The Tools menu offers other customization options.
6 Why Use ""JobFish""?
Searching for a job is a tedious process, and using the job boards is even more tedious, if not turning off. ""JobFish"" is a better interface to job boards then using them directly. Even if you just apply for the jobs directly through the board, job boards keep reposting the same data, make viewing results difficult, and applying not that easy. ""JobFish"" simplifies the process and takes away nothing of the original experience. ""JobFish"" adds to it.
Working with recruitment firms is also easy with ""JobFish"". You can use ""JobFish"" even for your networking contacts. Keep track of when you have to call them and the last time that the two of you talked. Keep track of your job tasks and things that recruiters might want you to do.
Keeping track of multiple resumes is also easier with ""JobFish"". Creating presentation packages and sending them out without gathering them each and every time is now simpler with ""JobFish"", be it one at a time or in mass using the mail merge feature in ""JobFish"".
""JobFish"" gives you reports, be it to file for EDD, or for yourself. There are a number of reports directly accessible from the MySummary (Home) page.
{{image url="/Images/Products/""JobFish""/Screenshots/""JobFish"" - Database Console.JPG" width='400' alt="""JobFish""" title="""JobFish"" - ""JobFish"" Database Console"}}
For advanced users, ""JobFish"" provides raw access to the underlying SQL database using the ""JobFish"" Database Console. On the View tab, you can select the table of interest. Simply select the rows that you want, copy the contents to the clipboard (or export the table to a CSV file format), and you then into whatever application you choose. If you only want some rows or the most recent, simply sort the table by the column desired, select the rows of interest, and copy the information to the clipboard.
We hope that this brief quick start guide gives you a flavor of what you can do with ""JobFish"" and how to get you started. Explore the product and all the various options available to you. If you get stuck, contact us and we will be happy to answer your questions. There are no dumb questions, other than not asking something that you want to ask. Let ""JobFish"" help you.

======JobFish 2010 Quick Start Guide======
JobFish 2010 Quick Start Guide
Working with JobFish makes working with a job board easier and faster with JobFish than working with the job board directly. JobFish supports two different types of job boards, HTML-based and XML/RSS-based, both seamlessly integrated, so you will notice very little difference.
{{image url="/Images/Products/JobFish/Screenshots/JobFish - Search for a New Job Wizard.JPG" width='400' alt="JobFish" title="JobFish - Job Search Wizard"}}
To get started, start JobFish. Click on the "Search for a new job" navigation button on the left hand side directly below the calendar on the MySummary (Home) page.
You will be presented with the Job Search Wizard, as shown to the left. Select the job board desired. JobFish will automatically launch the appropriate interface appropriate for the board. HTML based boards use the ‘JobFish Board Import Console’, whereas XML/RSS based job boards use the XML/RSS Job Search wizard. As a shortcut, you can launch the JobFish Board Import Console, by going to the JobFish menu on the Start Menu. You must use this wizard to access the XML/RSS based boards.
The following is the current list of HTML boards supported by JobFish.
CareerBuilder.com
CraigsList.com
Dice.com
HotJobs.com
JobALot.com
{{image url="/Images/Products/JobFish/Screenshots/JobFish Board Import Console - Main.JPG" width='400' alt="JobFish" title="JobFish - JobFish Board Import Console"}}
In this example, CareerBuilder.com was selected. Once you select the option and click on the Next button, you will see JobFish launch the JobFish Board Import Console. Regardless of which job board you choose, you will see the main home page of the board displayed. In the screenshot to the left, "accounting" and "Los Angeles, CA" were entered into the main search fields, but you can enter whatever you want. The "Find Jobs" button was pressed, which yields the search results that you see.
Here is where JobFish shines. Rather than clicking on each job opportunity and losing the search results or opening up a zillion browser windows, click on the "Load Search Results" button at the bottom. Before doing so, select how many search result pages you wish for JobFish to load. In the example above, one page was selected to load, but you can select however many you want. Simply click on the up/down spin button to adjust the count. After clicking on the "Load Search Results" button, you will see the following parsed search results on the "View (Search Results) tab.
{{image url="/Images/Products/JobFish/Screenshots/JobFish Board Import Console - Import Step 2.JPG" width='400' alt="JobFish" title="JobFish - JobFish Board Import Console - Import Jobs"}}
There are some nifty features that you can use. JobFish allows you to hide selected rows from future search results. Simply select the row(s) desired and click on the ‘Hide Selected Results from Future Searches’ button located in the lower left corner. You might have to adjust the splitter to see all the buttons. You can restore all previously hidden records by clicking on the small dropdown menu next to the button and select the appropriate option.
{{image url="/Images/Products/JobFish/Screenshots/JobFish Board Import Console - Import Step 1.JPG" width='400' alt="JobFish" title="JobFish - JobFish Board Import Console - View Search Results"}}
From here, there are two ways to proceed depending upon how you want to apply for the jobs. If you click directly on the Apply button on the website using either the side browser or the mini browser, you can click on the second column, "Did you apply for this job manually?" checkbox. You do not have to worry about losing the results with JobFish, as you would with using the job board with JobFish. Simply clicking on the next row brings up the next search result. You can also apply for the job later on, as will be discussed.
For jobs that you manually apply or for jobs that you want to import into your JobFish database, check the box in the first column for that job opportunity labeled "Are you interested in this job?" After you check the box on the jobs that you want to store, as shown, click on the "Import Jobs" button.
{{image url="/Images/Products/JobFish/Screenshots/JobFish Board Import Console - Import Step 1.JPG" width='400' alt="JobFish" title="JobFish - JobFish Board Import Console - View Search Results"}}
{{image url="/Images/Products/JobFish/Screenshots/JobFish Board Import Console - Import Step 3.JPG" width='400' alt="JobFish" title="JobFish - JobFish Board Import Console - Posting Details"}}
In the example shown, three (3) jobs were imported into the JobFish database. The import process completed and you will see the status of the search in the third column, "Job in JobFish Database". The text will show "Yes, Job ID [#]," where # will show the ID for the job imported. In the example, the IDs are 59, 60, and 61.
If you imported the jobs using the single method, ignore the "Import the Selected Jobs into Your JobFish Database", as the jobs are already imported. You might have to adjust the splitter bar to full see the buttons.
The reason for the import button and the ‘Update Cell’ is that JobFish allows users to edit the data prior to the import process. Many times it is easier to edit the results in a tabular grid and then do the import. If you wish to edit the data first before the physical creation of the job records in the JobFish database, alter the steps that you took on the "View (Search Results) tab. Rather than click on the import button as you did, click on the dropdown menu to the side of the button. Click on the "Extract Job Details Only" menu item. JobFish will then extract the data but will not do the import step. You can then press the import button on the third tab after you massage the data. Another reason for the button is that if for any reason one of the jobs does not import, you can fix the offending issue and then press the import button to try again for that job. Make sure to have checks in the first checkbox for only those jobs that you want to import and did not already import.
One reason that you might want to edit the records manually prior to importing them is to set the contact information or set any details of a job that might belong in one of the parsed fields available but was located in the description, so not readily parsed by JobFish.
If you had JobFish open at the same time that you did the import into JobFish using the JobFish Board Import Console, the job list inside of JobFish (MyJobs | MyJobs) will not show the jobs. That is because the list needs to be refreshed. Click on the refresh button directly above the table.
The following is a list of the current XML/RSS job boards supported by JobFish.
{{image url="/Images/Products/JobFish/Screenshots/JobFish - XMLRSS - Wizard Options.JPG" width='400' alt="JobFish" title="JobFish - XML/RSS Jobs - Configuration Options"}}
If you select one of these boards, JobFish will display the wizard indicated. You can specify the maximum number of job postings that you wish to download, the job board of interest (or all), search options, and other settings.
{{image url="/Images/Products/JobFish/Screenshots/JobFish - XMLRSS - Search Results.JPG" width='400' alt="JobFish" title="JobFish - XML/RSS Jobs - View Results"}}
Unlike HTML boards, where JobFish captures the entire posting and then makes a best attempt to parse and present the data, XML/RSS boards by their nature provide limited feeds. Most, if not all, XML/RSS based job boards provide partial descriptions in their feed and expect that users click on the details button to view the full posting. JobFish does attempt to solve this problem for the user, though. When looking at the final results in the preview dialog, JobFish displays the actual posting.
{{image url="/Images/Products/JobFish/Screenshots/JobFish - XMLRSS - Wizard.JPG" width='400' alt="JobFish" title="JobFish - XML/RSS Jobs - Wizard"}}
The screen to the right shows the search results. In this example 34 job postings of the 45 were downloaded. JobFish did some post filtering based upon the search options specified to create the final list shown.
{{image url="/Images/Products/JobFish/Screenshots/JobFish - XMLRSS - Job Postings Preview.JPG" width='400' alt="JobFish" title="JobFish - XML/RSS Jobs - Preview"}}
JobFish displays the resultant list in tabular format, but the easiest way to look at the results is to click on the preview toolbar button. That is the second button from the left directly above the table. You will be presented with the dialog shown.
{{image url="/Images/Products/JobFish/Screenshots/JobFish - Main Job List.JPG" width='400' alt="JobFish" title="JobFish - XML/RSS Jobs - MyJobs Job List"}}
There are several key elements to note in the dialog. The first is the scrollbar at the bottom left. You can preview the different listings by moving the scrollbar. JobFish indicates the current listing to the right of the scrollbar and the total number of listings directly above.
If you want to import any of the jobs, simply check the box, labeled "Check to mark for import" located directly above the Ok and Cancel buttons. You will see the total number of records that you selected for import in the field directly above the scrollbar labeled "To Import." You can also select jobs to import by checking the box on the main search results table next to the job opportunity indicated. To start the import process, click on the "Imported selected jobs into JobFish" toolbar button located directly above the main search results.
{{image url="/Images/Products/JobFish/Screenshots/JobFish - Job Record Properties.JPG" width='400' alt="JobFish" title="JobFish - Job Recod Properties"}}
The screenshot above shows the main job list inside of JobFish. If you are busy importing jobs and then go to this screen, you may not see your imported jobs listed. Do not worry. It is there in your database. Simply click on the refresh toolbar button located directly above the table.
{{image url="/Images/Products/JobFish/Screenshots/JobFish - Recruiters.JPG" width='400' alt="JobFish" title="JobFish - Recruiters"}}
The image to the left shows the recruiter / networking list inside of JobFish. JobFish offers pretty much the same features and task options for employers. As such, this quick start guide will not cover employers.
A very useful feature of JobFish in this area is the ‘Job List’ option. Simply select the recruiter or employer of interest, select job list from either the context menu or the toolbar button and JobFish will show you a list of jobs associated with this company. You will see the contact person in the resultant table. Simply click on the job of interest and click on the properties button. JobFish will immediately open up the job record.
Another feature available is sending out multiple customized emails to your contacts, employment and recruitment based. Enter the body of the email in the Tools | Options | Recruiter tab or have JobFish use your cover letter as the boilerplate with each salutation customized. JobFish can send out many customized, also known as mail merge, emails complete with attached presentation packages.
JobFish provides a number of different scheduling and tracking options. The Task List available off of the MyWorkspace area. You can enter tasks easily, simply by entering the task directly on the form or clicking on the new task toolbar button and entering the information on an easy to use form.
JobFish displays upcoming tasks, interactions, and interviews directly on the MySummary page. The MySummary page is your home page, where you can get a quick overview of your job search, quickly and easily.
An interaction is any email, phone call, instant message, or other form of communication that you wish to log. JobFish will associate all interactions and interviews with a job record. In that way, you can see all information related to a job opportunity. Knowing the history is important.
{{image url="/Images/Products/JobFish/Screenshots/JobFish - Presentation Package Wizard.JPG" width='400' alt="JobFish" title="JobFish - Presentation Package"}}
No matter what your profession, more than likely you will have a few different styles of your resume, one tailored for a certain aspect. Each resume might have associated with it certain portfolio pieces that you want to share, a uniquely customized cover letter, an image, and maybe other attachments. JobFish makes it easy to create presentation packages. A presentation package is an ensemble, a collective term used to denote your resume, cover letter, image, and other possible attachments and give them a unique name.
{{image url="/Images/Products/JobFish/Screenshots/JobFish - Email.JPG" width='400' alt="JobFish" title="JobFish - Send an Email"}}
To associate a job record with a presentation package, you can use the "Attach a resume package to a job record" from the "Work with your resume and cover letter" main navigation menu system. JobFish will display a list of job records. Select the job record in question, and JobFish will take care of the rest. Alternatively, you can open up the job record and select the presentation package from the dropdown list.
Once you have a presentation package to a job and you have an email address attached to either an employer or recruitment contact for the job record, you can apply for the job via email directly from within JobFish. Open up the job record, go to either the employer or recruiter property, and select the contact. From there, click the email contact button on the toolbar directly above the contact list. JobFish will display the screen shown.
JobFish will keep a copy of the email attached to the job record shown as an interaction. JobFish will also update the resume sent and date resume sent date automatically, if this email is the first one sent for the job record for your convenience.
JobFish has a built-in SMTP server that it can use, but sometimes especially with hotmail and other free accounts sending emails can be problematic. In those cases enter the SMTP POP3 server information for your email address. Go to the Tools | Options | Email dialog. Be sure to take off the checkmark that says use built-in SMTP server first checkbox. Also, make sure to select this email address as the default.
To apply for a job, click on the "Apply to a job in your JobFish database" directly from within JobFish. JobFish will display a list of job records. Select the job record that you want to apply to. From here one of three things will happen. If you have only the built-in apply for job URL extracted from the job posting associated with the job record, JobFish will open up an external browser to the apply-to page for you to apply to the job. If you have only an email address associated with the job record, JobFish will display the email interface for you to apply for the job opportunity this way. JobFish naturally keeps track of the email as an interaction. If you have both a URL and an email address, JobFish will ask you wish method you want to use to apply for the job and then act accordingly. JobFish will update the resume sent and date resume sent fields inside the job record upon you successfully applying for the job.
{{image url="/Images/Products/JobFish/Screenshots/JobFish - Select Skin.JPG" width='400' alt="JobFish" title="JobFish - Change Skin"}}
No matter how good an application is, if you use the application you want it to look good. JobFish is skinnable in one of several different ways. You can select a different outer skin by clicking on the inner most bubble in the upper right corner of the application to the lef of the minimize button. That displays the change skin dialog. There are numerous skins available for you to choose.
For the other part of JobFish, you can select one of several different themes. JobFish automatically defaults to the Microsoft Office 2007 theme, but you can select one of several, simply by clicking on the desired theme on the main toolbar or under by going to the Tools | Themes menu. The Tools menu offers other customization options.
