Who is an Odd Job Provider?
An Odd Job Provider posts an odd job and pays a selected Odd Job Seeker to get things done. Odd job Providers may also search and hire potential job seekers in the "Hire Talent" section instead of posting an odd job.
Who is an Odd Job Seeker?
An Odd Job Seeker applies for a suitable odd job within their capabilities to earn extra cash. Besides that, an Odd Job Seeker may market himself through the “Promote Your Talent” section in the profile page. When users market their profiles, they agree that their profiles are made available to view at the "Hire Talent" page.

I would like to post a job. What type of information should I put in the description?
As an Odd Job Provider, the more information you include in the description, the better. This is to ensure that you have the right type of applicants applying for the job. Types of info include: age group you would like to hire, gender, traits of the odd job seeker and probably tools that they should bring along.
Example: I’m looking for someone who is experienced in gardening and is available this Saturday at 8am for 5 hours. The candidate that I’m looking for should be a male, around 25-35 years old and has a lawn mower as I don’t have that at home. I would also need someone who is very strong because I need to pull out one of the plants and the roots are quite deep. Would need the person to also work fast as my garden is in a big mess. If you fulfill the criteria, don’t hesitate to apply. If time spent on the garden exceeds 5 hours, don’t worry I will pay the extra for that time according to the hour.
How do I receive payment after completing the odd job?
Odd Job Providers shall pay directly to you in cash after your job is completed.
I'm an Odd Job Provider who just approved an application for my posting. What to do now?
Once you approve an applicant, you may then Message the applicant via dojob’s “Message ME” function to make the necessary arrangements.
