Our history

In 1981, “America’s Career Expert,” Michael Farr, founded JIST (Job Information Seeking and Training) in Indianapolis, Indiana. Its goal was to serve workforce practitioners and career development professionals with training on career planning and the job search.

JIST became a publishing company in 1986 with the release of Getting the Job You Really Want. We rapidly developed more learning solutions and now offer 500-plus resources.

Today, JIST is a division of Paradigm Education Solutions and is the largest provider of print and digital learning solutions on career development and life skills.
