Hi Friends,

Even as I launch this today ( my 80th Birthday ), I realize that there is yet so much to say and do.
There is just no time to look back, no time to wonder,"Will anyone read these pages?"

With regards,

Dear Friend,


:  noun/JAM: for a Job Alert on Mobile
:  verb / JAM: for sending/receiving a job-alert on a mobile phone ; also JAMMING for   
applying online for a job from one’s mobile phone ( similar to Xeroxing for process of 
photocopying ) eg : JAM kiya kya ? JAM kar diya !
:  adjective / JAMMER ; eg : He is an ace jammer – one who is proficient in the process
of applying for jobs using his mobile phone.

One of these days, you will find OXFORD & WEBSTER dictionaries, describing JAM, as above, courtesy:

World-Wide-Jobs ( WWJ )

Dictionaries could have also described JAM as

“ A process of aggregating job-advts from jobsites around the World, matching these with job-preferences indicated by the jobseekers, short listing perfectly matched jobs, delivering as job-alert SMS on mobile phones, enabling candidates to apply online against any of these alerts by a single click on the mobile, then instantaneously emailing candidates’ resume to the concerned job-advertisers and providing on-screen acknowledgement.”

But  OXFORD/WEBSTER are conservative, slow-moving organizations. They take their own sweet time to “recognize” a revolution when they see one, especially an e-revolution such as JAM.

Those who are on the verge of getting extinct themselves cannot be expected to “read the writing on the wall”.

World-Wide-Jobs is the “writing” on the wall, for those who can read!

And, Dear Friend, YOU are the one, who is writing!

With regards

Dear Mr. Aikat

Many thanks for your e-mail of yesterday, asking me to contact Mr. Tejaswi Prakash.

I have been in touch with him since April 15, when I made a presentation about JAM, to Mr. Prakash, Mr. Tomu Jacob and Mr. Balu Nayar. I came out with an impression that they liked JAM.

However, on May 24, Mr. Prakash wrote,

“ As discussed last week, we have evaluated this service and will not be able to take this ahead at this point in time.

Please do, however, keep us posted on developments in the service from your side”.

I have kept Mr. Prakash posted on progress at our end, through e-mails in October/ November & December 14. I will phone him today and follow-up.

Testing of JAM is completed by Airtel & TATA Indicom. They are quite happy with the service.

Hopefully, JAM will get launched on Airtel network (Maharashtra), by early next week, followed by TATA Indicom launch in January 2005.

Testing at MTNL (Delhi) is about to start.

I will keep you informed of further developments.

Thanking you once again for your prompt response and requesting you to visit –

Dear Friend,

Your plain text resume is the old currency.

ImageBuilder version is the NEW CURRENCY.

Soon, the new currency will replace the old currency. Sure, for a while, you may get away using your plain text resume while applying for a job.

But befor long, recruitment manager will stop reading plain text resumes. They will insist on ImageBuilders only. Because, ImageBuilder enables them to grasp within a few seconds, your

Don’t wait till old currency is out of circulation !

presentation on JAM

Mr. Atul Rastogi

New Delhi

Dear Mr. Rastogi

JAM – Job Alert Mobile

I wish to thank you for giving us an opportunity to make a presentation on JAM, on Oct.. 16.

I hope, by now, you may have found some time to visit World-Wide-Jobs,  especially the Job Alert Preview. In the meantime, Abhi would be sending to you, the info/data requested. If there are any questions, please feel free to phone him on ( M ) 3-850-5801.

I have already emailed my proposal to  Shri Goyal. We can start testing JAM on MTNL network, as soon as we receive his approval.

With regards

Hemen Parekh


Dear Mr. Rastogi


I refer to my email ( Nov. 3 ), enclosing Annexure A/B/C.

Since then, we have tried to simplify the free-trial process, still  further,  as per enclosed


It would be for you to decide, whether you want to restrict the job-alerts during the free-trial period to 20/30/50 etc.

As you would have noticed from the enclosed DIAGRAM, a jobseeker would “pull” job-alerts on his mobile, while remaining logged onto the “Job Alert Preview Page” of  World-Wide-Jobs.  As each job-alert “Advt. No.” appears on the screen of his mobile, he immediately enters the same into the “Preview Page” of World-Wide-Jobs and views the full job-advt. ( of course, without email ID, of the advertiser ). Simultaneously, he also gets to see, how the alert (SMS) would appear on the screen of his mobile, when he completes trial and becomes a regular “Subscriber” of JAM.

This process has the advantage that a typical jobseeker would be able to complete the  entire Free-trial within - maybe – one hour, even as he is logged into the “ Preview Page” of World-Wide-Jobs.

As soon as free-trial ends, a  message would flash on his mobile, urging him to “REGISTER” for regular membership.

With above-mentioned simplification, I hope we should be able to launch the free-trial on MTNL network, sometime during the next week.

Awaiting your further instructions.

With regards

Hutch         -------           400 ( approx. )
