WorkFu opportunities demo


Hi everyone! The Workfu team have been working hard and we’re getting close to the launch of the full Workfu beta. I’ve put together a scrappy screencast to show you how it’s coming along.

Viewing Opportunities

In this screencast I give a quick overview of how viewing opportunities works. Hopefully you’ll get the idea! Would be great to hear your thoughts in the comments below.

    Looking pretty damn good. Looking forward to using it for real and getting the first job or contract out of it.

    I’m really enjoying it so far… My two cents:

    1) The filter by date posted could be the “Deadline date” instead;

    2) Though kinda obvious for some cultures… I think that the fuScore lacks context, is it a 100 good? Is it the maximum score? Where it’s saying so?

    3) Will it have any sort of qualification for community members.. I mean, if someone takes charge of an opportunity how will it affect his rep? How will one analyze if the party applying for the opportunity is serious about it?

    Interactions look great. I like the overal performance of the system. Looks pretty fast. Also good work on the filter interactions. Maybe not much usual but I guess pretty easy to learn.

    Looks great! Great interface. Simple and clean, nice design details. Looking forward to seeing it in action.

    Looks great. I love the colors you’ve chosen and the interface looks really clean. So are you gonna offer opportunities in the US too? I hope so.

    My 2 cents:
    - keep the filter criteria on the opportunity page
    - allow me to navigate through records (next/prev) on the opportunity page
    - keyboard shortcuts are also useful:
    – to navigate through records
    – to quickly apply or mark the opportunity as not interesting (think linkedin), flag or add to bookmarks

    @rhawbert thanks for feedback, we have some very interesting features and plans for the whole process. Will keep you updated.

    @asif yes we will have opportunities in the US, the site is global and we are planning on opportunities everywhere :)

    @ricardo thanks for the feedback, we have plans for a lot of the features you mention – favourites for example is already in place and visible on the video. And the ability to hide opportunities you are not interested in, is planned.

    I think you should try to ad networks like viadeo and xing !!!

    Best of luck
