Pocket Jobs is Expanding

Pocket Jobs is now available in Auckland. Yes, I thought they would expand beyond Wellington, but it was certainly fast work - it's only their second week! Well, it can only be a matter of time before www.Pocket.Jobs will be nationwide and one of New Zealand's biggest job searching websites.

Pocket Jobs

I want to tell you about this new job website: Pocket Jobs at www.Pocket.Jobs.
Pocket Jobs is a brand new job-hunting site that creates jobs out of Wellington’ hidden talent – the talent that is found in friends, family, students, stay-at-home parents and others who want jobs such as cleaning, sewing, babysitting, gardening, bookkeeping, IT, baking and dog-walking. Pocket Jobs provides quick cash jobs and whole new outlets for these hidden talents. Some of the jobs I have seen so far include: cleaning microwaves, writing blogs and website content, creating voicemail messages, designing book covers, taking rubbish to the tip, and demonstrating sales products. And new types of jobs are being added every day.
Joining Pocket Jobs is free, and all you need is your Facebook or email address. Here's how it works:
Find a Job: browse the listings on Find a Job, find the ones that match your skills, and put in a bid.
Post a Job: Go too Post a Job with your job description, the amount you are willing to pay and when you need it done by. Pocketers with the skills you need will be notified and they can bid for the job. Pick a Pocketer, and once the job is done and paid for, and if you like, reviewed, and the price is only a small service fee on your credit card.
