Working Not Working Now Lists Full-Time Jobs Too

wnwlogoanimated1

Former agency man Justin Gignac‘s attempts to improve the job market for creatives are now a bit more comprehensive.

The original purpose of the project Working Not Working, which Gignac runs with Adam Tompkins, was to empower agency-bound creatives to “free themselves from self-promotion” by going freelance and to help those who hire them “stop conducting exhaustive searches when qualified creatives are ready and waiting.”

Yet, after conducting an internal survey which found that “80% of the freelancers on the site would leave their beloved freelance lives for ‘the right’ full-time role”, Gignac and team created The UnJobBoard.

Not only are the gigs listed on UnJobBoard official–they’re only visible to the community’s own “vetted talent”. The team also worked to simplify them in order to avoid those lengthy, wallpaper-dry job descriptions that no one reads in the first place, helping employers to create custom posts quickly and manage them alongside lists of their favorite freelancers.

The gigs listed currently run from internships to one ECD position.
