Editors' Review

JobTabs Job Search & Resume Builder centralizes all your job search resources, including resumes, cover letters, applications, reports, and contacts. It has a browser, word processor, job search agents, and other built-in tools that can help you make your best presentation to employers, including task-specific Editor, Resume, and Cover Letters Toolbars.

Pros

Quick Config: Start off on the right foot with the Quick Config wizard, which walks you through the steps of preparing your resume and job search with expert tips. Details as well as videos, slideshows, and more are found on the Resources tab.

Job search central: JobTabs centralizes your job search resources with quick-access tabs for Recruiters, Employers, Networking, Resumes, Resources, Reports, Jobs, and the Dashboard.

Dashboard: The Dashboard offers a quick overview of your calendar, timeline, job applications, and other important items.

Cons

Resource-intensive setup: We had no trouble downloading, installing, and updating JobTabs and its online resources, but some users have reported stability problems when installing or setting up the software. The issue may be due more to bandwidth than JobTabs' demands, but users with bandwidth or connectivity limitations should take note.

Bottom Line

A capable ally like JobTabs Job Search & Resume Builder can actually help motivate job seekers to keep up the search. It isn't free, but it's hardly expensive, especially considering the impressive array of tools, advice, and resources it musters to help you find and land a good job.

Editors' note: This is a review of the trial version of JobTabs 5.0.0.1852.

"Don't even thing about a job without Job Tabs!"

February 05, 2016  |  By georgegizmo

2016-02-05 16:52:27  |  By georgegizmo

 |  Version: JobTabs Job Search and Resume Builder 5.0.0.1858

Pros

Works as promised in the descriptions.

Cons

I do not have any.

Summary

I recently took early retirement knowing I would need a part-time job to supplement income until an annuity kicks in about 24 months from now. Having done job/career searches in previous years I know how much of a pain it can be keeping track of applications and using the search engines, plus all the resumes and cover letters. So I went searching for software to help and found Job Tabs. There is a free version but I wanted all the bells and whistles so I opted for the paid version.
That first weekend I spent a lot of time getting the resumes, cover letters, and search engines all set up only to discover Job Tabs wasn't functioning as described when I attempted to apply for a job. After doing everything I knew to do to resolve the issue I finally called support. In the phone call, support was able to determine it was code on their end that was failing and no errors on my part. They did show me how to work around the problem but it wasn't as convenient as described by the publisher's descriptions and the editor's descriptions in Download.com. Now, granted support didn't resolve the problem as fast as I wanted but I can be impatient. I understand it can take some time to find a solution to a code issue. They did promise to keep in touch and I got phone calls almost every day until they had a new download available on the website that fixed the errors.
Job Tabs is working beautifully and meets, actually exceeds my expectations. I recommend Job Tabs to anyone in a job search.

"ESSENTIAL TOOL for job seekers/networkers...anytime."

September 23, 2015  |  By iVELLC

2015-09-23 14:05:32  |  By iVELLC

 |  Version: JobTabs Job Search and Resume Builder 5.0.0.1852

Pros

This will really help you organize the process, your resumes, etc. during a potential confusing time in life! A big help! It is also a great tool for tracking your employment history and building that VERY IMPORTANT network for the future...and for your friends.
The staff is exceptional. Their free tutorials are very helpful.

Cons

Initially intimidating...because there is so much that it can do...just follow the tutorials and you'll be on your way in no time!

Summary

Great investment for anyone that is seeking a job, dabbling in a change, or just wishing to track their own work history, resumes, etc.--all while building and tracking your increasingly valuable network of friends, associates, and references for future needs.

"On an all time high with JobTabs . . ."

June 02, 2015  |  By Brian_Corker

2015-06-02 12:14:38  |  By Brian_Corker

 |  Version: JobTabs Job Search and Resume Builder 5.0.0.1852

Pros

The cocaine of Job Search Software. (Sorry, been watching Breaking Bad on Roku and it has twisted my vocabulary in the short term.) ; -) Really, I had been using the JobTabs free resume builder, but wanted to try this thing to see what all the fuss was about. Glad I did as this thing is a complete solution from end to end!

Cons

Looking for a job is a con in and of itself.

Summary

Great package all the way around. It there has been a silver bullet to my job search, this software has been it. It gives me a huge sense of confidence just being this well organized. It has upped my game considerably and if it can up your game it is worth a try. Good luck!

"Got a new job! Couldn't be more pleased,"

December 10, 2013  |  By drewluvskarin

2013-12-10 16:40:29  |  By drewluvskarin

 |  Version: JobTabs Job Search and Resume Builder 2013 5.0.0.1823

Pros

I hadn't updated my resume for 7+ years, and had been dreading to do so. I was really needing a job change though. A week of "spare time" updating and reformatting per the advice in JobTabs and I had a small variety of very professional looking new resumes. I sent copies to two potential employers. Both were very impressed. I have just accepted a position at one of them. I couldn't be more pleased.

Cons

None that I have found.

Summary

Excellent customer support! I've paid 200X as much for high end engineering software and never received a follow-up contact, just to see if I'm doing OK, or even after repeated requests for assistance. JobTabs followed up on their own volition to see how I was doing.

Pros

Can't comment - couldn't get it to run

Cons

Spent about three hours repeatedly downloading and trying to run this application. Every time it reached the "Loading resources" screen it crashed...real shame.

"Crash city - Let's all buy the FULL version!"

December 14, 2012  |  By Mattman1980

2012-12-14 23:55:52  |  By Mattman1980

 |  Version: JobTabs Job Search and Resume 2012 5.0.0.1717

Pros

I really don't know. How do you run this program without having to send an error report every other click of the mouse?

Cons

Crashed on update, crashed on browsing, crashed on uninstall. Yeah, let's all buy the full version. Yippee! (sarcasm)

Summary

I can't even really give this much of a rating. I am running Windows 8 and this software keeps on crashing. Yeah, like I'm really going to shell out $50 for a software program that can't even send an error report when it crashes... I am soooo disappointed.

"So simple to manage a job search!"

October 15, 2012  |  By AsiaJason

2012-10-15 02:41:02  |  By AsiaJason

 |  Version: JobTabs Job Search and Resume 2012 5.0.0.1717

Pros

Manage complex or simple job search effortlessly.
Every resume/cover letter can be tailored to each job easily.
Handles versioning simply.

When I spoke with a hiring manager, I had the version of the resume he had in front of him, with no guessing.

If I spoke with someone at a convention, I added them to my contact list, and could decide wether to follow up with them or not, with a complete history.

Extremely easy to use, but very powerful.

A snap to send out dozens of customized resumes, with custom cover letters.

NO MESSY Word files and email clients with attachements all over the place. It really made life simpler for me.

Cons

No Cons. It works. Very well.

Summary

I used this for my job search. It actually made it *fun*. Not only that, but I could focus on finding qualified leads, and let it take care of all the technical details of managing the process, from start to finish. Minimal time was spent on sending the resume, from the moment of finding a qualified lead, to the sending of the customized resume/cover letter - in the format the employer wanted, by the method the employer wanted, with filenames the employer wanted.

"Essential Software That Works - Who Would Have Thought"

August 13, 2012  |  By lawlock2012

2012-08-13 18:41:30  |  By lawlock2012

 |  Version: JobTabs Job Search and Resume 2011 5.0.0.1709

Pros

Take it from a professional formally mired and overwhelmed in the blood sport known as online job hunting - JobTabs offers the ultimate cure for the common obstacles besetting a job candidate , that is lack of focus, inability to effectively follow up
a job application and general frustration. In my opinion the program's "Dashboard" and "Job Search Agents" functions alone justify the cost of JobTabs but when you add in
the fact that this software solution forces you to turn a "hit or miss" amateur job quest into a professional organized campaign for employment, the price truly becomes secondary . Combine this program with the resources of LinkedIn and I believe your
job search effectiveness will increase at least tenfold.

Cons

Undetectable so far

Summary

If the economy was as good as this program JobTabs would not be needed - sad !

"The Best Job Search Investment I Made!"

March 09, 2012  |  By solarpond

2012-03-09 07:17:26  |  By solarpond

 |  Version: JobTabs Job Search and Resume 2011 5.0.0.1686

Pros

JobTabs has been a huge help in my job search. The customer service has also been excellent and it is that service which prompted me to write this review. These guys solved a nasty problem with my installation. It turned out that my anti-virus program was deleting one of the files used to run JobTabs. After temporarily disabling the anti-virus program, JobTabs installed perfectly and I was able to start my anti-virus program again. I am very appreciative, because the JobTabs guys did all the work themselves over the internet which was really great. They also pointed out a lot of superfluous programs I had running. Removing them did a lot to free up my computer memory.

I also wanted to mention that they are very responsive. I made some recommendations on some things I would like to see added and they had them coded and delivered in a matter of weeks. That is unusual for ANY company!

Cons

In my experience - none.

Summary

I was hired for a consulting position and I start on Monday! JobTabs really helped keep me organized during my search. I will continue using it on a limited basis to keep up with contacts and future job opportunities and will recommend it to others who find themselves looking for a job.
