Looking for work? Looking for workers?

Two sites to find work . . . or workers


The traditional employment agency is under attack by on-line agencies . . . and some on-line sites seem to do a good job of providing one-stop shopping for both job-hunters and those looking for resources. Some sites address the needs of outsourcing across national borders.

Two leaders are Odesk.com and Guru.com. I’ve heard positive reports from users — both employers and workers — of both sites. Both sites provide some kind of currency conversion and mediation service, which is necessary for international transactions. Odesk allows project teams to be assembled across national borders and facilitates routine on-line team meetings. I’m intrigued by the scope of services provided by these sites, though I haven’t personally used either one. I’d like to hear from you if you have tried either site.
