interviews they set up during the 30 days. It’s a combination of attitude adjustment, communications coaching, interviewing techniques, acting and voice training, wardrobe choices with make-overs, social media web usage skills, topped off with reinventing themselves inside and out where needed – and they all need it. The main goal is to train, secure job interview appointments, go to the interviews and land a job. By the final episode, all Applicants will have trained for and pursued the job of Determination their dreams. But will they get it? Maybe yes and maybe no! It’s part of the suspense. With or without the new job these 10 people will have evolved – not just as employees, but also as people. They’ve been empowered by the training. The other Applicants have helped. Through interactive social media portals the viewers have helped. Not quitting and overcoming all forms of internal and external obstacles, these Applicants have grown beyond their problems. They may have even inspired some viewers to help or even provide them with a job – now that they know them.

OBz will give viewers a documentary-style look at what it takes to retrain and reinvent themselves with all skills necessary to obtain a job, in a market where there are 4 people for every available position. These 10 people are not depressed. They refuse to be one of the statistics. The viewer will watch as a group of 10 people of every employable age and background leave their families and hometowns and live together high up in a home in the New Hampshire Lakes Region. Their every move will be streamed live online via uStream as they train, learn, reinvent themselves, socialize and plan their strategies for re-entering the classification of the ―employed.‖ Innovative camera and sensor technology will allow a global audience to interact with the aspiring Applicants through text, blogs, MySpace, twitter and facebook as the action unfolds in real-time—something that was introduced and refined by Flatmates. The opinions and points of view of the viewing audience will be recorded through blogs and video messages on www.jobztv.com allowing the aspiring Applicants to test their strengths, challenge their ideas, rehearse interviews, and audition in front of video cameras and their audience. As the experience evolves, the community around JOBz will introduce new hopefuls for a Second Season in another rural or urban community, as well as visitors and other participants. In this way JOBz will become an on-going, interactive cultural experiment. The storyline of JOBz will be driven by the real life narrative of the lives of the individual 10 Applicants. So when one of them leaves – to take a new job, because they’ve quit, or simply because they want out – their place will be taken by a new hopeful Applicant who will be chosen by the public via an open audition process.

JOBz is a highly relevant program for a new generation who broadcast all aspects of their lives to the public via blogs, mobile phones, LinkedIn, MySpace and Facebook updates and their Tweets. This is multiplatform entertainment for the exploding social networking set — uncensored.
