They say that college is the best four years of a man's life. But now that you're out, help prove them wrong with Jobaphiles.
Launched by three college grads (two from Williams, one from, sigh, Brown), Jobaphiles is essentially an online auction site that hooks up people who need work done with qualified college students who need money and are willing to throw each under the bus to offer the lowest possible wage for a gig -- a process made much more streamlined if that gig is actually throwing someone under the bus. It works like this: if you have a job, errand, or menial task that needs doing, just sign up, provide a description of the work, confess to the max amount you'll pay, and let the online bidding begin; then, you can either wait till the lowest bidder is left standing or hire the strongest candidate out there, as it does take a particularly specific size and skill set to properly sweep a chimney. Though it's targeted and marketed to college kids, if you're a recent grad/broke, destitute gambler, you can search the listings for a job you seem vaguely qualified for, check the employer ratings to ensure the likelihood of getting paid, and then start bidding, or create a profile to impress potential employers with your ability to create online profiles.
While the site is still in beta, it currently boasts over 1,600 jobs in the Boston and NY areas and is expecting a big rollout over the next few months, which'll no doubt be the best months of your life, now that those smug college jerks are siphoning your septic tank.
