How is GigBlender different than a normal job search website?
We focus on Fit and we value Diversity. We help Talent find jobs that suit them to a tee … and those with Opportunities to find employees, contractors, volunteers, board, committee and commission members whose qualifications, qualities and passions match their missions.
What do you mean by a “gig”?
We mean an opportunity to earn a living doing something you’re passionate about – whether that’s full-time, part-time, as a consultant/contractor/freelancer. GigBlender also helps individuals and organizations seeking volunteers or individuals who wish to serve on boards, committees or commissions with compatible missions.
Is the app industry-specific?
GigBlender serves all industries and job sectors: for-profit, non-profit and government.
Can I only find jobs in the Madison area?
No, you can choose to search for gigs in/around Madison or anywhere else in the U.S.
Is this an app only for people of color?
GigBlender is for everyone, regardless of race, age, gender, ethnicity, religion, sexual orientation, physical abilities or veteran status.
What does it cost to use GigBlender?
For individual job seekers (Talent), there is no charge. Employers who list jobs (Opportunity), the annual fee is based on number of full-time employees (contact us
for more details).
Can I search anonymously?
Yes, if you wish... you can be invisible yet STILL see opportunities that fit your profile.
Is my information confidential?
Absolutely, we do not share.
What if I don’t want to answer all the questions?
While you don’t need to answer all the questions, the app requires that you answer at least 70% to “Find a Gig.” The more questions you answer, the better your chances of finding a gig that’s a great fit.
Do you guarantee me a job?
No, but when you create your profile in an honest and authentic way you will see opportunities that fit what you’ve said matters most to you ... on multiple levels.
Can I set up alerts?
Not currently, but alerts based on fit-level will be coming soon.
Can I contact an employer about a job (and vice versa)?
Many employers include a url in their job listings that allow you to apply directly. GigBlender Opportunity Partners who find Talent of interest will receive your contact information to connect directly with you (unless you have chosen to remain anonymous).
Is there a place to upload a resume?
Talent doesn’t have to upload a resume to be considered for gigs. That will be an option in the future, but it won’t be required.
