…we’ve just started working with these guys: Workology.  It’s a free professional social network for all you portoflio careerists (non-traditional workers?  freelancers?) out there.  Brings you together with relevant work opportunities at the same time as connecting you with like-minded people – or other flexible workers that can help you run your business (like accountants and so on) – allowing you to manage your own workstyle.  Focused on variety of industries, including marketing and PR.  The site quasi-launched in an invite-only beta late last week.  They’re in pre-launch mode and are after feedback, so please give it a go and let them know what you think.  If you want an invite, let me know (or simply register on the site).

Not that it really matters – but invite-only tends to indicate that they are being picky about who joins the site. I just managed to get an invitation through the simple expedient of giving them my email address (which I guess is a bit picky… they are missing out on all the people who don’t have email addresses…)

I believe the invitation process was implemented to help them manage the number of sign-ups in the first week (ie ensure that 10,000 people didn’t try and sign on at the same time and therefore bring the brand new shiny servers down). I think they’re running quite nicely and (ssh, you heard it here first) the invitation process may be switched off in the coming days… Which means anyone can sign on and discover a new way of working. Except you Simon, because you work for the world’s finest PR agency already ; )
