More power to the job hunters

By Angela McCarthy - NZ Herald

It is an open marketplace where people who want to be hired can promote themselves. It's for job seekers, contractors, freelancers, businesses and people offering services to their community. I run the business alone, apart from my amazing programmer Gayan Perera from Magnetism Solutions. My main focus at the moment is increasing our numbers.
