Let´s review the problem…

Huacho needs an available, reliable, friendly and inexpensive source for finding employee opportunities, with enough information for choosing the best option because the existing sources are not updated, with incomplete information and there´s no way to know about a vacancy in the moment it is generated.

How would you solve this problem if you had control over the laws of nature (think invisibility, teleportation, etc.)?

1) I would become invisible and go to firms to check in the Human Resource department about vacancies, salaries, working conditions and so on, to publish in a special database free for everybody.

2) I would go through the walls and become invisible for getting the information regarding jobs.

3) At light speed, I would do numbers 1 and 2 as fast as possible every night.4) I would become a mind reader, so I could gather the requirements of all

directors, managers and Human Resource regarding jobs, with salaries and conditions.

5) I would become a mental message deliverer to send this message to all interested people.

6) I would mentally tell those people to deposit a fee in my account for this service, but the money will be real, not mental.

7) I would teach carrier pigeons to come and go with job information

The 3 selected ideas and why

1) Having a software app warning possible candidates, when they walk or pass in front of the firm, that there are job opportunities in that firm.

This will allow firms reach valuable candidates for them at low cost, and will help people, when they are near or in front of the firm building or business unit, to know if there is an opportunity there, the requirements and the working conditions in real time.

It would be also great to have the possibility to leave a message or send information to the firm to be contacted when there´s a vacant job.

The 3 selected ideas and why

2) Forming a Facebook job community to advertise about opportunities, salaries and conditions in general.

As everyday there are more people in social groups in the Web, that´s a natural and inexpensive way for creating a space for searching for new job opportunities anywhere in the world. Besides, preliminary interviews could be arranged through this option.

The 3 selected ideas and why

3) Forming a university net for sharing information about job opportunities in their areas.

Universities are reliable forms for getting information, and why not to benefit from that delivering and sharing information, which could be free for students and general public, but charging a reasonable fee for enterprises, being able to receive sponsorships or grants to make this work. This university employee net could be connected to local government or business job databases. The most important is to have available, updated and reliable information for those wanting a job.

Finally, it is very important to have as many ideas as possible, to select the best ones to be tested.

Then, sharing these ideas with others could make better solutions thinking in the user, not in the designers.

Enjoy the process!!!
