Archive for the ‘Job Site Review’ Category
Recently, I was Google-ing around for our competitors - Part Time Job Board. Surprisingly, I found this online Part Time Job Community - PartTimer.com.my. There are pretty new in this industry. Here is my full diagnosis report on this alternative source of part time job in Malaysia.
PartTimer.com.my - A web portal for Part time workers. The design of the website is really eye-catching and relaxing. The jobs are categorized in different area, in fact covering all over Malaysia.
The number of total jobs itself is not that high but still there are some very good opportunities have been enlisted. At present the website holds highest number of Part time Job entries for the port state of Penang. Perhaps, the founder of this job board are from Penang as stated in the WhoIs Database.
To use the web site, you have to be a member; membership is gained in exchange of a very minimal fee. It is divided into three basic category, Bronze, Silver and Gold membership:
- Bronze membership for 3 months: RM 30
- Silver membership of 6 months: RM 50
- Gold Membership for 1 year: RM 80
In case you want to post a job, that is you are in need of someone to help you in your business, you can also post jobs by your own. And when you do that, a Post-a-Task Wizard will guide you through to efficiently and attractively get the job done.
All in all, it is new source of part time job for job-seekers. Proper use of this facility can really help people to get a good insight of their respective concern. Job-seekers can very easily get in touch with some highest paid part time opportunities nearby at hand.
Personally, I am against their business modal in charging the Part Timer to exchange for a part time job opportunity. They should charge the employer for posting jobs. In response to my point, here is a small poll:
Last week, I received a review invitation from Wei Tat, the co-founder of Soskod.com. We always happily to share the new source of freelance jobs with the community. Here is our review:-
Freelancing has become a great boom to many individuals who has the zeal and capacity to go along with this fast-paced mode of independent occupation. The Internet has also become a real powerhouse to back this freelancing flourish and as such many freelancing web portal has stepped on the scene till now. Soskod.com is a recent addition in this ongoing trend.
It’s a Malaysian based online freelance portal dedicated to all kinds of IT related freelancing jobs opportunities such as Programming, Software, Framework and API, Multimedia, Technical Writing etc. Besides all these you can find other non-IT areas of freelancing such as Accounting, Legal Advice, Quality Assurance, Advertising, Surveying, Data Management, Copywriting, Blogging, Proof Reading, Translation etc.
Though the design and the colour scheme of the web portal is not so attractive at the first look, but content-wise the portal is very deep. Moreover, there is no chance of scamming, as there is no service fee associated to either post jobs or become a member as a freelancer.
However, Soskod.com will not guarantee the quality of service as it claims just to be a platform between the client and the service provider. If the client and the service-provider (the freelancer) are happy, Soskod.com urges them to help spread the name all around. Signing up requires a valid email address and in fact the member gets a free copy of an eBook called “PC protection Guide”.
The FAQ section is generally quite detailed and contains all the major customer queries. It has a mini news section that includes all the latest churn-outs regarding online marketing and freelance issues.
Though the Web portal is a recent annexation and yet to take off for the league of big players in the field of freelancing work providers. As a partially competitor for them, AsiaPartTime wish them all the best and have a success in this freelance industry.
