Between shoveling snow to driving for Uber or turning to GoFundMe to raise money, many furloughed employees are looking to the gig economy to pay their bills as the partial government shutdown carries on. Even if you aren't a government employee, we all could use a little extra dough in our pockets.
The challenge with most gig jobs is that many are high effort and low reward. Many either expend more energy than payoff; take weeks to get up and running and some tactics can even land people in jail.
Whether it’s through necessity or to supplement main income, there’s a very easy and simple way for you or someone in your network to earn extra cash—in a way that doesn’t disrupt life.
And, it’s as simple as responding to an email.
Why Hunt Club: Who We Are
A few years ago, our founder Nick Cromydas found himself constantly referring people he knew for open positions. Headhunters would contact him to ask if he knew anyone qualified for job X or job Y, and he’d recommend someone in his network. But there were some obvious problems:
- The headhunter would get paid for facilitating the hire
- The candidate would get a signing bonus for taking the new gig
- And, Nick would be left with a bottle of wine and thank you note
Nick launched Hunt Club out of this frustration. We're a Chicago-based startup that uses crowdsourcing technology to help companies find qualified candidates, and we reward people for making connections that lead to hires.
