Otetsudai Networks: Mobile Jobs by GPS
Looking for the freedom and flexibility of part-time work over salaried security, Japanese youth can now turn to Otetsudai Networks for instant daily employment wherever they are. Once signed up to the service with a mini-cv illustrating skills and focus, they can take a daily GPS reading on their phone and just hang out waiting for offers. Businesses looking for immediate staffing or individuals looking for specific help can send a request to Otetsudai Networks and receive a list of available potential employees within the area alongside their qualifications and ratings from previous employers within minutes. Business themselves are rated on a per-manager basis for the potential workers to see how their peers have rated working for them, and the network even offers the chance for bargaining the pay-cheque!
Currently with a network of about 45,000 users, and growing at a rate of 1,000 new users per week, this idea could have the potential to fill a very important gap not just for Japan but in the global workforce. Imagine if wherever you went you could offer your skills through the network for daily employment and eradicate the need for the current work structure?
