A Job Matchmaker for the Newly Laid-Off Masses

Reader Scott Barham wrote in response to my recent story What Layoffs Meant for Small Businesses:

“It’s true there is a lot of talent available for hire at the moment - great news for smaller businesses who are hiring.”

Then in true entrepreneurial fashion he pointed out a new site — — a kind of matchmaker for the recent waves of laid off workers and the unemployed looking for work.

According to the website’s founders:

We started this website so people who have been laid off can say “here I am and this is why you should hire me”. Companies looking to hire can find experienced, talented people who are hungry for a new opportunity. We’re not saying everyone on here is a gem, but we think this will be a good place for talent shopping.

Talented people can also find each other here and work together on the next big thing. During the tough times, many talented people go it alone and innovate ready for the next boom cycle.
