Zaask and you shall receive
Zaask is a website aimed at linking professional and amateur freelancers (taskers) to businesses and contractors (askers). The website has a rating system that promotes meritocracy: if you do the job correctly, you will have a better chance of getting the next one.
Why it matters
A freelance-based website could be beneficial both for job hunters and employers. For the former it provides a chance of better contracts whereas it might be used as a helpful human resources platform for the latter. In the age of social media, where we happily rate products and business services, should we be doing the same with individuals? And more importantly can the rating system be reliable and fight nepotism?
40% of professionals lose concentration after the first 20 minutes of a meeting. Although the most logical solution would be to shorten the meetings, sometimes the measure is unviable.

The objective is to promote their client’s business thinking in a non conventional place.
Have you ever said to yourself “I would pay someone to do this for me”? People lead busy lives and everyday tasks can become quite overwhelming at times.
The Spanish social network Etece tries to solve this problem by putting qualified people in touch with people who are searching for a helping hand. Users choose the fee they are willing to pay for any given service and if the task isn’t done properly, users can even refuse to pay. From moving, deliveries, home repairs to pet care, nearly every service can have a price tag attached to it.
