Please don’t get me wrong. There is no sex jobs posted in AsiaPartTime Community :). Yesterday, I was checking the website traffic and I am surprised that someone google "KL sex jobs". Our community listed on the 2nd of the search result. It is really make me shock to see it.
Do you think, really got people looking for sex jobs through online?
Third Round of Pikom PC Fair is around the corner again. For all the students who on school holidays, it is a good opportunity for you to work in PC Fair. Up to now, we had 6 jobs posted with us. The pay is starting from RM70 up to RM100. Unfortunately, these jobs only available to KL and Penang people. Hopefully, more jobs for other places will be posted here soon.
Recently, I found a new Malaysian Forum which dedicated for freelance modeling jobs. This is a super good source for modeling jobs. The growing room for this community is very huge because guys and gals always dream to become super model. Just look at the 8TV - "I want to be model" reality show, then you will see many of the young teenagers want to stand on the stage and cat-walking.
To bring more information about this modeling forum, I emailed the owner - Jerry Ong. Here is a short summary from him:
Model Freelancer Community start host @ Friendster.com group six months ago and the first idea is to help people who look for freelance , modeling, promoter, event jobs & etc to post jobs for free. The members grow fast @ Friendster group (14k) members) , as to provide better platform & extensive feature, I decided to create a domain to provide this services start October 2007 for free & coming with more features soon.
Nowadays, I received tons of complaints from the community regarding home-based work scam jobs. Thanks to Justin Wong, he shared a scam job with us. It is about "Mailing Assignment Opportunity offer" which offered by this company - "H@rry Business Solution".
It is a long email which written in a long sales copy format. Once I look at it, I know it is a scam job because REAL job will be written in a short and simple format. Here is the most obvious clauses that catch my eyes:

The RM185 charge is only to cover the costs for preparing the whole package which will be sent to you including postage. There will be NO annual fee and NO other hidden fee whatsoever—just a one-time payment of RM185. We will fully refund you your deposit once you have sent back 50 orders according to our instructions.

By looking at their tag line, they are aiming to be the "AirAsia" style of job site in Asia. AllyHunt is different from other job site in terms of products and services. They provides the basic recruitment services such as job posting, search resume and search job. If you need more advance service, then you are asked to pay extra. Just like AirAsia, they prodive you the transportation but no free-meal served.
As explained by Sinsee, AllyHunt is formed by a group of headhunters. After collecting years of headhunting experience, they decided to move on and enter into online recruitment industry. Finally, they created this clean and simple job site - AllyHunt.com.
I received the invitation to review their job site and share with our community. Here is my findings on this No-Frill job site:-
