Jobaphiles offers job auctions


Here’s another wrinkle: auction yourself for a job, or go to an auction to purchase contracting work. The site is called “Jobaphiles”, with link here. It appears to be in Beta Test. The site was described on NBC Washington today.

I saw jobs there varying from academic tutoring to nannies and dog walking (a long way from IT). I even saw a listing for “entry level equity traders: start your career on Wall Street”. Really? Now?

I guess a piecework auction is one way to find out “the market demand for your services.” We do seem to headed for a free market cultural revolution.

Maybe afacionados of job auctioning would enjoy the movie "The Red Violin."
