I had an idea for a job website and I was going to make this myself, but I don’t have the time and I just want this idea to go viral and for the
website to come into existence by someone who has the expertise to pull this off.
The idea is simple – users make an account, posts videos of themselves performing a job skill, host that video on a website like YouTube, make a
link to that video post on their profile, and enters that they are looking for a job within a certain number of miles from a certain zip code. Other
people can rank how well that person did in that skill and give feedback on how to improve their skills. This service will always be free for
Businesses that want to contact potential workers create an account and are verified to make sure they are an actual company. They then search for
people with certain skills in their zip code and instantly find the highest ranked individuals looking for work in their area. The business can then
watch the person do those skills and see for themselves if the person’s skills matches what they are looking for – a video resume instead of
staring at a piece of paper. The company would then pay $1 to access that person’s email to get in contact with them. I believe the major job
posting boards charge several hundred dollars to post one job, so companies would definitely pay $1 to get in direct contact with workers with the
skills they are seeking (multiplied by thousands, the website could pay for itself).
I had this idea a few months ago - there are so many people looking for work right now and it would just be incredible to connect these people in such
great need of a job directly to companies who are looking to hire in a completely new way. Please spread the word as if everyone can have a much more
efficient way of finding jobs, our economy can start to thrive again.
