peggsit – Quick Job Market

Logo If you are looking for a quick way to find someone to do a job for you or you are looking for small work opportunities and you live in the California Bay Area, peggsit may be able to help you. A service similar to Craigslist, it aims to bring together employers and workers in the area for the mutual benefit for everyone.

The process is simple. Employers post their jobs along with the estimated budget in the listing and the workers can browse the listing to find the jobs which suit their specialty. Both parties can then correspond online to finalize the requirements. There are no fees involved and job posters are required to pay the applicant on the day the job is completed.

What they say about themselves

Ever wish you could hire someone to assemble your IKEA furniture? Do you want to earn $50 cutting the neighbor’s lawn? peggsit.com connects individuals and small businesses needing short-term help with local people willing and able to get the job done.

Why it could be a success

By giving the community a chance to help itself out by putting employers and workers in contact through a simple application, peggsit can soon become the next outsourcing portal for Bay Area. What they need is to expand their service to other cities to maximize the interaction and possibly incorporate a payment procedure to ensure the fairness of the process.
