JobSchmob.com opens its doors to the weary workers of the world.

What do you do when your job is outsourced and your company wants you to train your offshore replacement? If you’re Abigail Spankie, you start a website about the perils of the working world.

Until recently, Spankie, 30, worked as a web developer at a large insurance company. Spankie, already tired of the everyday woes of the corporate world, quit her job when she was asked to train workers in other countries who would eventually take her place. She immediately realized there are thousands of others who, like her, detest the daily grind and started JobSchmob.com as a gathering place for the like-minded.

“We like to think of JobSchmob as a cross between a water cooler, a happy hour and a group therapy session,” said Spankie. “Our goal is to provide a place for workers to come together and share their experiences.”

JobSchmob.com features first hand accounts of on-the-job woes, an advice column, career ponderings and career resources.

JobSchmob.com was recently featured as the “Cool Site of the Day” on http://www.coolsiteoftheday.com and as a “Hot Site” on http://www.usatoday.com.

“Our mission is accomplished if people laugh a bit, vent a bit, and contemplate life a bit,” added Spankie.

JobSchmob.com is a haven for those seeking a much-needed break from the working world. With all the outsourcing, downsizing, lay-offs, long hours, difficult people and stress...they realize you need help! Consider JobSchmob the lighter side of your working day... Browse the latest horror stories and feel free to post your own. They're listening. So go on. Vent. You'll feel much better!

As the site says, "Everyday life is hilarious. Your job...is hilarious."
