Get Paid to Look For Job, Even if You're Not Looking
NotchUp.com is a new job-search Web site that helps companies find talented workers who aren't actually searching for a job. After all, the best workers aren't posting their resumes on Monster.com or Craigslist--they're busy climbing the corporate ladder in their current job.
But at the right price, you may be able to persuade someone to listen to your offer. To avoid seeming disloyal to their company, workers can post their resume and current projects while staying invisible to their current boss. In fact, you can stay anonymous throughout the entire process, up to the point of a serious offer. You can also import your LinkedIn profile to show off your wide network of industry connections.
And they can name the price it would take to accept a phone interview. This could be useful for companies based outside of major tech hubs that are having a hard time attracting talented people. And it lets workers name a pretty high price--$500 anyone?--just for listening to the company's pitch.
NotchUp.com is self-funded and, according to the company, growing fast. About a week ago, a few days after it's private beta launch, the site had about 200 members. But once members started inviting other companies and employees, it took off. In the last 36 hours, the company says, NotchUp.com got 50,000 employees and 400 corporations to sign up.
