Hello here.
This is my first time posting here and I am trying to make it as natural as I can.

Reading Unscripted ™ by @MJ DeMarco actually help me to see money from a different and more better perspective.

I got to learn that money is a trade exchange of value, and the more value you deliver to the world, the more money you can make, plus the harder the problem you solve the better.

So couples of days ago, I observed one common problem in the country...

There is a mass backhaul of employees by companies and working place due to the effect of C0VlD-19.
Companies are trying to cut down cost therefore, they resolve to reducing their employees which actually stem another mass unemployment, however as an unscripted dude, I saw opportunity in this...
Many employees don't want to go through the risk of starting another business or running a company by theirselves, so they still prefer the white collar job, resulting in thousand peoples contesting for 10 position in a workplace.

I believe I can create a solution for this problem apart from the regular jobs listing stuffs.
I therefore humbly request for your advice on this...
If you are me, what will you do differently???

@Orionlab Welcome to the forum.

I’m a little confused by your question. What do you mean, “What will you do differently?”

If you see a need and think you have a viable solution, as @Bekit says go for it! Good luck and keep us posted.
I actually have a plan approach to this, however I am trying to evaluate people's feedback here as a patch to my original model.
Thanks for interacting!

What's your idea? If you have a solution for unemployment you can save trillions worldwide.

Huuuuuh...

Reverse Headhunting? You get me into a job, I pay you part of my paycheck?

This could actually work. There are a LOT of people depending on their income and who would have to massively cut back if they went unemployed.

.edit:

It would have an extremely high barrier of entry, though. Having that kind of network would take years of industry contact accumulation.

depending on the level of jobs (he said white-collar) it would either be called reverse headhunting, or would be called a temp agency.

I'd suggest starting it out as a free service (you sign up here, get a weekly list of job openings and the ones that are still available) and then later on, charging for "premium" access, both for the potential employees and later on the potential companies looking to hire (they basically say they need 2 people to do X and they know they will have someone show up the next day for work)
