This may well be the greatest collection of software ever compiled.

The PC-SIG Library on CD-ROM is our premier collection of the entire
PC-SIG library.  Every shareware program we have is on one disc; over
900 megabytes of software you can have immediate access to.

Easy to use, all you have to do is insert the disc and type 'INSTALL' at
the DOS prompt.  We've included all the tools you need for fast easy
access to the programs and their descriptions.

The WordCruncher text retrieval software allows you to quickly access
the description for any program you want.  All the programs are indexed
by title, filename, PC-SIG disk number, and every word within the
program description.  There couldn't be an easier way to find just the
right program.  All the programs are logically divided into thirteen
major categories with subcategories, making it easier to find just the
right software.

All of the programs have been scanned for viruses.  There are also three
online virus utilities that can be run from the CD-ROM which will scan,
screen and clean viruses.  Not only does this save hard disk space, but
also gives every user added security from viruses.

Whether you're interested in Accounting or Windows, there's a shareware
program for you on the PC-SIG Library on CD-ROM.

"Never before has such a valuable collection of popular shareware been
compiled on one CD-ROM that everyone can afford." Dr. File Finder a.k.a.
Michael Callahan

Finally, 368 of the most useful, popular, important shareware programs
have been put together on one CD. No matter what your need, it's on The
Essential Home & Business Collection.  Everything from Administration to
Windows software is here.

The Essential CD incorporates the WordCruncher text retrieval system.
Every program on the disc is indexed by title, filename, PC-SIG disk
number, and every word in the program description.  A new utility, Narc,
is implemented so you can look at the program files and the author's
on-line documentation without having to first copy the program to your
hard disk.  By using WordCruncher and Narc, you can quickly find the
program you want and review it to be sure, without ever having to run it
from your hard disk.

If you've got a CD-ROM player at home and want to get more use of it and
your computer, or if you're trying to avoid purchasing another Nintendo
cartridge, or if you just enjoy looking at new software, you need The
Essential Home & Business Collection.

System Requirements:

IBM PC/XT/AT PS/2 or compatible with 384K memory DOS 3.1 or higher and

                             General Description

      Looking for Work is an interactive guide for professionals and
      managers seeking to change or find employment. It is a step-by-step
      aid in planning and mounting an effective marketing campaign. It
      contains six units and almost two dozen worksheets, checklists and
      models to structure and guide the search for a new job.

      The program's theme is that a job search is a marketing campaign -
      one that requires planning, analysis, targeted markets, and
      commitment to a schedule of tasks and activities. Using sound training
      principles, the program provides an introduction to a job search, a
      substantial amount of guidance in analyzing one's "natural" market,
      and considerable direction and structure in carrying out the many
      tasks and activities of an efficient campaign. It not only shows one
      how to go about it but through a series of exercises and worksheets,
      takes the user through the process. When that user completes the
      program, he/she will have a list of potential employers, a resume, a
      core marketing letter, and will be well-prepared for job interviews. 


     To start the program, type WORK, then hit <Enter>. The program will
     ask you to sign in. When you finish a unit and exit, your progress
     will be stored in a file. When you sign in subsequently, the program  
     will take you directly to the next unit, or to a menu.

     If you wish to run the program from your hard disk, you must use a
     text editor to make a change in the CONFIG file. In line 16 of that
     file, you need to insert the path (drive and directory) where you
     have copied the program. For example, if you copy the files to the 
     "STUFF" directory on your C drive, line 16 of the config file should 
     look like this: C:\STUFF. Save this as an ASCII file and start the
     program. If you do not make this change, you will get an error message
     saying the program can't find the CNT file.

                     Target audience, Objectives & Content

       Target audience: The intended audience consists of professional and
       managerial personnel who are seeking to change jobs or who have
       been laid-off or fired. Many have never been through a job search
       before and need substantial help on even the most basic tasks and
       activities. Others may have changed jobs several times, but need a
       systematic approach and step-by-step guidance. Most people put too
       much emphasis on the resume and not enough on networking and on a
       series of marketing letters. Almost nobody prepares adequately for
       interviews, which is the most crucial step in the process.

       Objectives: Users will be able to organize and carry out an effective
       job search campaign, including in-depth analysis of work history,
       a solid core resume & marketing letters sent to appropriately targeted
       prospective employers, and preparation for detailed interviews. Users
       will analyze their own financial situation and work history, and will
       readily identify industries and firms which represent the highest
       likelihood of a match with the job specifications.

       Specifically, the program will:
       1) Assist the user in developing a personalized plan, including a 
          time-table and specific activities;

       2) Review and analyze the user's financial resources, time frame and   
          other constraints; 

       3) Provide step-by-step guidelines, checklists and criteria for
          developing lists of target companies and other sources;

       4) Provide forms, information and guidance in preparing a detailed
          employment history;

       5) Step-by-step instructions in preparing industry-specific resumes 
          and marketing letters;
       6) Week-by-week lists of tasks and activities, and milestones with
          which to assess progress.
       Program features:
       Multi-track: Because the strategy and timing are likely to differ for
       people in different circumstances, the program queries the user and
       directs him or her to a track based on the following information: age,
       income, current employment status, motivating factors, willingness to
       relocate, and level in the organization.
      Structured activities, analysis & guidelines: The program uses a variety
      of worksheets, checklists and exercises, creative instructional
      techniques to guide an analysis of his/her personal situation, a very 
      detailed work history, systematic listing (using SIC codes) of related 
      industries and firms, and step-by-step instructions on the preparation 
      of the core resume and several marketing letters.

      While most users will proceed through the program in linear fashion,
      experienced job hunters can use the software as a reference work,
      skipping some sections to concentrate on areas where they need help.


       Users of Looking for Work must accept this disclaimer of warranty: 
       "Looking for Work" is supplied as is. The author disclaims all 
       warranties, expressed or implied, including without limitation, 
       the warranties of merchantability and of fitness for any purpose. 
       The author assumes no liability for damages, direct or consequen-
       tial, which may result from the use of Looking for Work.                    

                             OTHER INFORMATION

   Looking for Work is a shareware program and is provided at no charge  
   to the user for limited evaluation. You may share it with friends, 
   but please do not give it away altered or as part of another system. 
   The essence of user-supported software is to provide personal       
   computer users with quality software without high prices, and yet to 
   provide incentive for programmers to continue to develop new products. 
   If you use this program beyond a cursory examination, you should feel
   honor-bound to make the $29 registration payment. The registration fee 
   will license one copy for use on any one computer at any one time. Pay-          
   ment of that fee will bring you two additional lessons:  (1) using 
   on-line resume banks and job databases and, (2) preparing for interviews.
   You must treat this software just like a book. An example is that this 
   software may be used by any number of people and may be freely moved 
   from one computer location to another, so long as there is no possibil-
   ity of it being used at one location while it's being used at another --    
   just as a book cannot be read by two different persons at the same time.    
   Commercial users (outplacement firms, employers, etc.) of Looking for Work 
   must register and obtain a site license within 30 days of first use if 
   they intend to use or distribute copies of Looking for Work, or this 
   examination license is withdrawn. A site-license is available to career
   consulting and outplacement firms at a one-time fee of $2,500. Members 
   of the International Association of Career Consulting Firms are entitled 
   to additional benefits. For information, write or phone InterDigital.           
   Anyone distributing Looking for Work for any kind of remuneration must 
   contact InterDigital for authorization. This authorization will be 
   granted automatically to distributors recognized by the ASP as adhering to 
   its guidelines for shareware distributors, and such distributors may begin 
   offering Looking for Work immediately. (However, InterDigital must still 
   be advised so that the distributor can be kept up-to-date with the latest 
   version of Looking for Work.)       
                               LIST of FILES

             These files make up the Looking for Work program:

             WORK.EXE        The "engine" that drives the program
             CONFIG          Enables one to adjust to different hardware
             MOD#n.LSN       Content files for each unit
             MOD#n.CNT       Directory for each unit
             WORK.LSN        The inital module in the program
             WORK.CNT        The contents directory for the first module

                            BENEFITS of REGISTRATION

   Educational programs are like games -- few users bother to pay the 
   registration fee, no matter how modest it is. As an incentive to do so, 
   InterDigital will send a registered copy (without "beg" screens) which
   includes two additional lessons: (1) Making use of on-line job banks and
   modifying your resume for computer-based resume databases; (2) Preparing
   for interviews. There is material in this version on getting ready for
   interviews, but work with several career consulting firms during the 
   year enabled us to enrich it enormously -- to the point where it is now
   a separate unit loaded with practical advice and activities for the 
   serious applicant.

   Employers and providers of outplacement and career counseling services
   may find that the program saves them substantial time and introduces a
   high measure of consistency and professionalism in dealing with clients.
   They may wish to have InterDigital customize the program with their
   firm's name and with other information. Any commercial use of Looking
   for Work without payment of a licensing fee is a violation of copyright.  
   InterDigital will customize the program for outplacement and career
   counseling firms and employers for a modest fee.
