Finding people with skills, or being found. A new Web site can help. I’m Fred Fishkin with technology BootCamp, a report on gadgets and gear. SkillPages is the name of a Web site and app designed to help you find people with the skills you are looking for, or market your own skills. It has attracted millions of users in Europe and has now launched in the U.S.. Founder and CEO Iain MacDonald…
“So what SkillPages does, it allows you to search for people with any skill you need, find people who have exactly what you’re looking for, see who they are, what they do, examples of what they do through like video or photos and then you can see your real life connections to them, such as if you’ve got a friend in common or maybe you went to the same school. It helps you find skilled people that are recommended by your friends. So it’s almost like people in real life like to do business with people they know or people they share a connection with. And we just make doing that a lot easier.”
The SkillPages app and Web site are free to use and worth checking out. You can find us at BootCamp.com. I’m Fred Fishkin.
