Get 'er Done with QuadJobs!
Here's the thing- college kids have a lot going for them. They are young, generally in shape, boundless energy (it was reserved for partying in my case, but off topic) and they are a lot more educated in all things current/tech than our generation is. This new site, QuadJobs, realized the potential for college students to fulfill a lot of needs in local communities with relatively low cost of labor.
- Started by a group of three moms: Andra Newman, Former head of recruitment for J. Crew and Abercrombie & Fitch, Bridie Loverro, Founder of Blue State Coffee and Betsy O’Reilly, Former Managing Director at Deutsche Bank (um....yeah....so I guess they are qualified!)
- Utilizes college students for odd job work in many task areas, and they are continually graded by QuadJob users on a 4.0 GPA scale
- Win-win: You get stuff done, they are paid and get to put your ratings on their resume
Want a list of tasks? Here are the most common:
As a part time worker and full time mom, I need all the help I can get. I will let you know how the service goes, I am going to post for a babysitter soon so we can have a night out! (Oh, and they sent me these cool t-shirts to help get the word out...cute, eh? Oh, and the crazy eye makeup job is for another post, please disregard)
