This program is quite good in directing a job search. It has all the elements that the big out-placement agencies teach. My own experience is that there are really three things one must do in the job search.

1). Have a good, clear resume, one which is RESULTS oriented. (I.E., - saved company $100,000 by implementing a new scheduling system). Resume should be no more than 2 pages, and contain NO personal info.

2). Have a clear cover letter which emphasizes the skills and accomplishments. Do NOT have long wordy paragraphs. Make the points jump out at the reader.

3). Now use your network. 80% of all jobs come from networking. I know it is tough, but honest, its better being 1 of 1 than 1 of 500. My last position was the result of a tentative meeting between 2 people. The first had met the 2nd at a meeting. I got the 2nds, and networked through 2 more people into the position. The 2nd person really didn't remember the 1st but it really didn't matter. There are lots of books on networking, and take them to heart.

4). Finally, make sure that you look like quality, both in appearance and in your letters. Use high quality paper and envelopes. Use a cream or buff paper. (preferably 24 pound weight). (You can get it at Staples for $20.00 for 500 sheets. (Crane's). It makes your resume and cover letter stand out.

To use the program:

1). Copy all files to a formatted floppy by copying. (Copy *.* to A:) (A 360K DD is all you need.)
2). Now, change to the floppy drive by typing in the drive address (A: or B:)
3). Each time you desire to use the program type in the command: DRIVER. (The program will execute and you are on your way).

The program is good for ALL professionals, including secretaries through engineers, lawyers, etc..

  1. Very nice! Thank you for this wonderful archive. I wonder why I found it only now. Long live the BBS file archives!

  2. This is so awesome! 😀 I’d be cool if you could download an entire archive of this at once, though.

  3. But one thing that puzzles me is the “mtswslnkmcjklsdlsbdmMICROSOFT” string. There is an article about it here. It is definitely worth a read:
