JobPage Launches Crowd Sourced Job Service To Help People And Their Communities Find Employment


London (PRWEB UK) 19 March 2013

JobPage (http://www.jobpage.com) launches a radical new concept for finding employment that democratises the job search process and connects real people to real jobs.

Breaking away from the hierarchies of company, recruiter and agency – which creates artificial barriers between the job seeker and the person hiring – instead on JobPage, you will find a growing number of everyday people helping others in their community find employment.

JobPage is a social jobs network where its members find inspirational jobs, including apprenticeships, published on company websites and then share them with their friends, family and local community who may be looking for work.

JobPage is a unique jobs service – it does not aggregate jobs, or allow mass postings from agencies – every job you see on JobPage is there because a real person has personally endorsed it to help someone else find a new job.

“People often come across jobs when browsing the web that they know would be perfect for a friend, but for one reason or another they fail to let them know” says JobPage Co-founder Matthew Ogston. ”JobPage makes it quick and easy to share work opportunities with other people, inspiring them to find a job they love.”

JobPage is free to use for both job seekers and businesses – a valuable tool that will help local communities find employment, and help small businesses to grow by finding staff at zero cost.

About Matthew Ogston Co-founder

In 2010, Matthew had a successful job working at one of the UK’s largest recruitment agencies but felt something was missing in his work life. He needed a job that inspired him. He subsequently left this job on a journey to find happiness in his work.
After nearly three years of soul searching, he built JobPage to help others in the same position. Through JobPage he found his passion – a passion to inspire others to find the job they love.

CrowdTV: Where Individuals Form Communities Online to Collaborate and Create

What if individuals were able to join up with like minded people to dream up, shape, and ultimately create documentary stories that mattered to them? In 2011, CrowdTV was developed and used to facilitate just that in a world first participatory media process. CrowdTV’s first project, WaterStories, involved gathering individuals from Western Sydney to collaboratively create a documentary around the theme of water in their landscape. In this process, online community members shared ideas for the documentary, suggested experts and community members to interview, participated virtually in the editing of the film, and ultimately gamed their way towards being recognized in the documentary credits. There was a collision of age old stories about water in our culture with a new wave of media and crowd-sourcing. The role of the audience was changed from passive viewer to key creators. This experiment in creative engagement was underpinned by theories of community development, storytelling, and technology in community determination. Reflections on this process give key insights to the critical success factors of online community collaboration for learning and communicating on important issues.
