TryMyWork.com Launches a New Employment Concept
Fort Collins, CO — TryMyWork.com, an innovative grassroots company, is launching an inspired concept to connect self-employed service providers with customers in early May, 2011. The innovative website allows service providers to offer one hour of work, as a sample, to customers.
Customers gain by forgoing the typical time-consuming, uninformative interview process, which too often isn’t a great indictor of an employee’s true skill set or ability. Service providers gain by having the opportunity to show off their skills and talents to potential customers and employers. TryMyWork is the first service of its kind that provides trustworthy, safe, scam-free, community-based employment connections. Customers can rate service providers and service providers can rate customers. New users are able to review the ratings online before requesting a connection.
“Our unique approach to connecting Fort Collins’ service providers with potential customers eliminates the dreaded, time-consuming and awkward interview process. We replaced the interview with a free one hour work sample. There is no better way for self-employed folks to get a job than to have the opportunity to show potential customers what they can do,” said Glenn Corliss, TryMyWork CEO.
Glenn and his wife, Jeanette, were inspired to create TryMyWork after they purchased a 100-year-old home and attempted to hire contract workers, nannies and handymen. They scoured the usual anonymous online listing services and conducted countless interviews. They quickly realized that a good interview was no guarantee of a job well done. The process was frustrating. The experience sparked the idea for TryMyWork, a better way to connect self-employed service providers with customers.
TryMyWork will verify the customer’s identity and residency prior to connecting them to a service provider. TryMyWork also pre-screens all Service Providers’ profiles before listing them. The service is free for service providers, who will be offering a free hour of their time, skill and talent. Customers will pay a nominal connection fee. In the spirit of TryMyWork, the first connection is free.
“TryMyWork believes employment solutions are found at the local level,” said Jeanette Corliss, TryMyWork co-founder. “We’re dedicated to solving the unemployment problem one neighbor at a time.”
TryMyWork is 100% locally owned and operated and intends to serve local Northern Coloradoans.
TryMyWork will be at Kites In The Park Festival at Spring Canyon Park on April 17th at a demonstration: Solve Fort Collins’ Unemployment – One Neighbor at a Time — One Connection at a Time. Stop by.
