SPINNAKER ADDS PFS:RESUME & JOB SEARCH PRO TO ITS LINE OF PFS: SOFTWARE
 BOSTON, Jan. 10 /PRNewswire/ -- Spinnaker Software Corporation (NASDAQ: SPKR) today announced it is shipping PFS:Resume & Job Search Pro(tm), a new software program for IBM and compatible computers that organizes the entire job-search process. The program can create professional-looking resumes even using inexpensive dot-matrix printers, so there's no need to use an outside print shop.
 "If you're in the job market, PFS:Resume & Job Search Pro will give you that vital competitive edge," said Lynne Weiss, Spinnaker's vice president of sales and marketing and PFS:Division manager. "It creates an effective, professional-looking resume, but more than that, it helps get your resume into the hands of the right people. It even prepares you for the job interview. PFS:Resume & Job Search Pro is the complete job search tool, and it fits wonderfully into our fast-growing family of PFS: products."
 PFS:Resume & Job Search sells for $59 (suggested retail) and features a sophisticated word processor with mail merge to help you create effective, professional resumes and cover letters. Included are: nine sample resume styles and cover letters as well as interview tips; an appointment manager to organize both your contact network and your time; and an action word glossary to add excitement to your writing. PFS:Resume & Job Search Pro automatically lays out your resume for you, and even coaches you in handling difficult interview questions by offering sample questions.
 The built-in word processor offers a number of sophisticated features, including: insert, delete, cut, paste, and copy; plain, bold underline and italic styles; 30 typefaces plus resident printer fonts, with font sizes from five to 72 points; superscripts and subscripts; search and replace; automatic hyphenation and soft hyphenation; mail merge for creating personalized mailings with the contact manager database; center, left, and full justification; three levels of indent; adjustable margins and tabs; and support for ASCII, Spinnaker Eight-In- One, and Word Publisher 5.0 file formats. PFS:Resume & Job Search Pro's sophisticated printer drivers give you superior results from over 250 laser printers and dot-matrix printers -- even 9-pin printers.
 Free with every copy of PFS:Resume & Job Search Pro are: Publisher's Powerpak(tm), a scalable font generator; the International CorrectSpell(tm) spelling Corrector, and Roget's II Electronic Thesaurus -- a combined value of $179 if purchased separately.
 PFS:Resume & Job Search Pro requires an IBM PS/1, PS/2, or IBM compatible computer with 640K RAM; 360K (5.25") or 720K (3.5") floppy drive and hard disk; Hercules, CGA, EGA, or VGA graphics card; MS-DOS or DOS 3.1 or higher, and optional mouse.
