Frequently Asked Questions

  • Why should I join Jobstart?

    A single piece of advice that may seem simple to you can often change someone's life. When people are able to surround themselves with the right people, career trajectories ramp upwards.

    In our age of technology, then, why are we not seeing a dramatic increase in upwards mobility? With vast social networking power, why does authentic mentorship still feel so distant?

    We at Jobstart believe that technology and the recruiting industry has focused too little on humanity and empowering individuals. There are hundreds of companies that help recruiters filter out 99% of applicants, but none that effectively surround people with others who can impact their life. We can do better.

    Jobstart is this belief, built into a product. It's a curated network of industry experts who also happen to be good-hearted, helpful people. It's a network where people can join and immediately -- finally -- feel like they have the support to make moves.

    If you believe that's important, join the cause.

  • What's the time commitment like?

    We designed Jobstart from the ground up to work for people with the busiest of schedules. Put simply, you are in control of your involvement at all times.

    First, you can set your desired time involvement per week and we'll be sure to respect your time and wishes.

    Second, when a request comes your way, you can deny it with one-click if you're busy. Our matching algorithms will still ensure the individual gets the help they need from someone else in a timely manner.

  • How much money will I make, and how do I get paid?

    Our services pay out -- on average -- about $50 dollars per hour. We chose this number because it's enough to be worth your time, but low enough to make help accessible to everyone. With this number, we've also been fortunate to find that most experts join because they primarily want to help others.

    We use Stripe Connect to send payments directly to your bank account, and you get paid immediately upon your agreement to help via a service (resume review, mock interview, etc).

  • Can I refer people to my company or my friend's companies?

    Absolutely, and if you get a referral bonus... keep it for yourself!

    Every week a select number of job seekers on our platform will be looking for a new opportunity. We'll make them visible to you. It's all free.
