Hi Jes, great idea. Reminds me of Samasource (in terms of microwork). I like the pairing of underemployed/unemployed young people to the needs of SMEs. My question is, on resumes for more full time employment in the future for these young people, time spent at one company or organization matters a lot in addition to the type of work being done. Will this micro-consultancy work only span to specific tasks or will it be a set time of 3/6/12 months? Thus, the client would need to use the service and have needs that would take a longer period to accomplish?

For example, I was thinking of the challenge that a Task Rabbit would have in advertising the work they've done on a resume (since it's only task related).

Great idea!
