Austin, TX (PRWEB) April 3, 2007
Workchest Enterprises, LLC today announces the official launch of Workchest.com, a website focused on making the global job market accessible to individuals and small businesses. Workchest.com allows any individual or business to post job opportunities for free, making the website uniquely designed to handle short-term and temporary jobs, in addition to traditional full-time and part-time job postings (http://www.workchest.com). The site also offers a range of features, including a free messaging service, unlimited accounts, and a rating system.
According to information provided on the website, many job websites charge $100 a month or more to post a job, limiting the types of employers who can utilize the services. Such fees make it unfeasible for individuals with one-time job opportunities such as house painting, tutoring, or editing to post jobs on these sites. Workchest.com's mission is to connect these small employers with reliable job seekers.
"We realized that there was currently no free, easy way for the average person to find reliable temporary help or connect with someone who needs their skills," says Bryan Shepherd, one of the Workchest.com founders. "We looked at how online auctions had revolutionized the way people bought and sold things online. Essentially, they made it possible for everyone in the world to become an online retailer. We thought 'You could do that with employment, too.'
"At the same time we were noticing that all over the internet - in online forums, on blogs, in comments on news articles - people were asking for help with this little project or that little project. That just strengthened our convictions that there was an underserved market out there."
Workchest.com is banking on the assumption that many people would like to earn extra income but do not want to add a regular part-time job to their workload. Instead, these individuals are looking for opportunities to turn their talents into occasional work, such as tutoring, proofreading, writing blog articles, or similar employment.
In addition to providing potential employers with a place to post positions, Workchest.com allows job seekers to post free profiles that promote their expertise and help them connect with the best job opportunities. Users can create different profiles to highlight their different skill sets, with no limit on the number of profiles they create.
Workchest.com is hoping its unique features will help users make reliable connections without the drawbacks often associated with free web services. Users can rate other members' profiles and leave feedback, allowing regular users to develop a name for themselves. A messaging system allows users to apply for jobs or contact job seekers without sharing confidential contact information until they are ready. To make the searching process easier, users can also save job opportunities or member profiles in a "Workchest" for retrieval later. In addition, users can purchase upgrades to make job postings or skills stand out and minimize spam or shotgun applicants.
"In doing our market analysis, we found that while there were some classified sites that offered free job postings, there was no place that brought everything together into a free service, focused solely on job postings, which fostered a community of regular users," Mr. Shepherd states. "The internet is moving more and more towards socially oriented services, but online employment sites haven't kept up. Workchest.com is designed to fill this gap."
