If you’re in the market for a new job, there are numerous things you can do.

You can brush up your CV and send it to a load of companies advertising their positions.

You can update your LinkedIn profile, to subtly suggest to anybody watching that you might be ready to move on.

You can take to the small ads and hit the phone to find out if anybody will see you for an interview.

Or, with hiremyfriend.io you can get your friends to tell the world just how fabulous you are.

Marketing yourself as a desirable commodity is tough for most people. Unless you’re imbued with that 'never say die' confidence that some people seem to have, you might find telling people how good you are a bit difficult. Embarrassing, even.

So why not get those that know you best to do the marketing for you?

Here, you sign up, with an anonymous profile through Twitter, and then get as many people as you know to back you. The more backers you get, the more likely you are to get noticed. And then you could be walking into your dream job.

Not bad, eh?
