Many young people are searching for jobs in this day and age, but with school and other prior engagements, it’s hard to find work that fits their schedule. Skratch, a job portal app, hopes to be the best middle-man for these job seekers.
Not only does Skratch lend itself well to teens’ schedules, the company wishes to focus on the safety aspect of the job search. Many youth can be taken advantage of when they’re vulnerable in these situations, giving too much information or being preyed upon. Skratch will send messages to parents when their child accepts a job, and 17 and under kids must have parental approval before beginning their search.
“Safety is our single priority as a business,” Scott Bennett, Skratch co-founder and CEO. “For every interaction that the teen has, Mom and Dad know where they are going.”
Older users are screened against the sex offender registry, and the company also keeps tabs on employers throughout the process.
Join us in Bangkok from the 28th of February to the 1st of March for the 22nd Property Portal Watch Conference. The theme for this year is The Future of Online Real Estate Marketing – Getting Closer to the Transaction.
