Get Paid Thousands to Find Your Friend a Job Logo Logo

So you have this friend who is a high tech wiz, and you have a spare hour or two. In that time, you can not only find your friend a great new job, but also pocket $10,000-$20,000 for your efforts.

Sound too good to be true? It's not. San Francisco start-up Top Prospect is using this process to find top applicant for high tech jobs right now. As of this posting, there are more than 140 jobs from 47 companies available through the site, and, get this: their total available budget for recommendation fees is $1.5 million. Hey -- if they've got the money, you've got the time, right?

Despite the high general unemployment rates in the United States, there have always been certain tech jobs that are still very hard to fill. Companies usually pay recruiters about 20 percent to 25 percent of the recruit's first year salary to find the right candidate, and they often have to reach out to foreign countries for people who are qualified. Why not keep that money a little closer to home?
