Protus Offers Job Seekers Free Tips and Access to Communications Tools
"Guerrilla Job Search" - approved MyFax, my1voice and Campaigner offer innovative ways to make an impression with potential employers

Ottawa (April 29, 2010) - The U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics reported there were 2.7 million job openings on the last business day of February, 2010. But the competition and the number of resumes for each job opening are steep.

Protus, the provider of Web-based communications tools including Campaigner email marketing, MyFax Internet fax and my1voice virtual phone services, wants to help. These business communication services approved by "Guerrilla Job Search" and provided by Protus support the America Back to Work initiative. They are designed to help bring people together - job hunters, employers, career professionals - and focus on adopting "Best-Practices" when it comes to job hunting.

"We're on a mission to put 50,000 Americans back to work in 2010," said David Perry, founder, Guerrilla Job Search International Inc. and co-author, Guerrilla Marketing for Job Hunters 2.0. "While we're out there training people to find jobs, MyFax, Campaigner and my1voice services are assisting them to communicate professionally, efficiently and effectively."

In addition to offering free 30-day trials of all three services with no commitments and no hassle, Protus shares these guerrilla job hunters tips on how to use these tools to get resumes out in front of prospective employers.

  • A toll-free number allows job seekers to expand their search beyond their home area. Some employers limit the candidates they will consider to their local area. A toll-free number is a good way to avoid being dropped from consideration immediately. A good Web-based service can provide a toll-free number without the high cost typically associated with these numbers. It can also provide local phone numbers beyond a home area code if the job seeker wants to focus in a specific area. A Web-based phone number applies to both Internet fax and virtual phone services.
  • A virtual phone service can increase a job seeker's chances of landing that next position by making sure he/she never misses a call from a prospective employer. Through smart call forwarding, my1voice allows calls to the job seeker's number to be forwarded to one or more phones and answered as if it was a direct call. With caller ID tagging, business or personal calls are easily identified before answering, allowing job seekers to greet callers appropriately, i.e. in a business-like manner for business calls and a casual manner for personal calls.
  • Sending a resume via fax can get information to an employer quickly and in a manner that eliminates worries about going immediately into junk mail. But who wants to spend money on the machine, the dedicated phone line, and supplies such as toner and paper? With an Internet fax service such as MyFax all users need is an Internet connection. They can also receive confirmations of delivery, and keep complete log information and an image of the fax online. And it's all stored online for one year for free.
  • The job hunt requires marketing. For those guerrilla job hunters really thinking outside the box, basic email such as Microsoft Outlook or Gmail may not be enough. An email marketing service such as Campaigner helps job seekers build and segment address lists, perform A/B testing to see which subject headers get the highest number of click-throughs and allows them to demonstrate creativity by creating eye-catching e-resumes that stand out in an inbox. It also lets users see who opens their resume and who should receive a follow-up phone call.
