How Does bitJob Compare to Other Job Portals?
Upwork? Fiverr? Ethlance? Find out why bitJob is the best engineered platform for students.
When it comes to looking for work online, there are an abundance of options. From LinkedIn to Indeed to Craigslist to Fiverr, many offer unique functionalities and access to employers and employees. But even though there are more options than ever for finding a job online, finding quality, well-paying work is harder than ever. This is especially true for students.
The reason for this is most job sites, even the newer ones, are hampered by their centralized structure. They don’t offer an even playing field for students because they’re not specialized for a student’s lifestyle.
Many members of the bitJob community reach out to us asking what makes bitJob different, both in the traditional online employment marketplace and as a blockchain-based portal. With that in mind, we’ve broken down a comparison between bitJob and some of the other services that make similar claims.
First, bitJob vs. Centralized Job Markets…
Quality: bitJob provides a professional quality guarantee to employers who source labor through the portal. On apps like Fiverr, there is no such guarantee, and the work often suffers because of it.
Labor: On sites like Upwork and Taskrabbit, employing freelancers is often prohibitively expensive. bitJob is a global marketplace where everyone is assured of fair pay for fair work.
Employer Relationships: The key to a vibrant ecosystem is a “win-win” mentality. Because bitJob places equal importance on the perspective of student workers and student employers, everyone benefits from the exchange, which means more jobs for everyone.
Long-Term Projects: Whether you need to make a quick buck over the weekend, or you’re looking for a part-time job to last a whole semester, bitJob will be able to accommodate your needs. That kind of flexibility just isn’t available on Fiverr.
Job Browsing: Many freelancer-focused job portals don’t even allow users to browse for jobs! Instead, users are forced to wait for potential employers to contact them. At bitJob, we encourage employers and students to get to know each other.
Anti-Monopoly: Often on freelancer portals, a select few top-tier professionals monopolize the best opportunities. bitJob is built to find the right kind of job for everyone, regardless of your past experience or qualifications.
Student Ecosystem: The STU Token will be the fuel of the entire bitJob ecosystem, which will grow to include a vibrant marketplace of products ranging from books for classes to spring break travel, all offered at an exclusively discounted rate only for students.
And bitJob vs. Cryptocurrency Job Markets…
Built for Students: bitJob is unique as the only employment portal on the blockchain that is engineered to help students find work while they’re still in school, and that’s why it’s completely free for students to use.
Sharing Ecosystem/Economy: As mentioned, the STU Token will be the fuel of the entire bitJob ecosystem, which will grow to include a vibrant marketplace of products ranging from books for classes to spring break travel, all offered at an exclusively discounted rate only for students.
Paypal Functionality: Although bitJonb runs on the STU Token, student workers will be able to quickly and seamlessly withdraw their earnings into fiat currency through Paypal. This is a huge upside not available on Chronobank or Ethlance.
Built for Mainstream Adoption: You don’t need to be a blockchain expert or obsessive to understand or use bitJob. That’s why it has unlimited potential for user adoption.
Online Jobs: If you find the job online and get paid online, you should be able to do the work online. Isn’t that what decentralization is all about?
Not 100% Decentralized: As blockchain enthusiasts, we understand the importance of a decentralized world. However, a project that supports the livelihood of people all over the world needs stability, and we feel that the bitJob organizational structure is the perfect mix of decentralized egalitarianism and centralized leadership.
