Hi, what do you think about making a job aggregator with job offers only in exotice countries? (Bali, Thailand, Hawai, Meldives etc.) I made already a group on Facebook called Job in Paradise. Do you have any other idea how to evaluate my idea? :)
Sounds like an interesting idea Alena! I certainly think it's a good niche area where you could come up with a unique angle even if others are doing something a bit similar. I would try to come up with a USP that goes beyond the fact that you will focus on jobs in exotic countries . Maybe something like providing the whole package to help someone move to that location or resources to help someone learn about living in a particular location etc. etc. Do you have a business model idea?
I am trying it in my home country and it is working well for now. The problem is, I do not have any skills to code a job board.
You will want to validate your idea as cheaply as possible. A FB group is a great idea. Sounds like you are finding local jobs and posting these jobs to the group, do you know if anyone is applying? Is anyone getting hired? I would definitely second Ian Walton's statement that you need a unique USP. I truly think you do not need a website at this point.
There's a few job boards that do something similar like WeWorkRemotely but I haven't seen any that are strictly exotic locations so I can definitely see opportunity there. I actually started a email based remote work aggregator a while ago based on users technical skills at remotehacker.io
I think this is a growing area overall as many in the tech arena are tired of the cubicle life on a daily basis.
Hey Alena, there is a startup called 'StartMeUp' that get students internships with startups based in exotic areas including Bali and Thailand. Its not to different to your idea so you may be able to find some inspiration there :)
I believe you are based in Australia? Us brits consider that exotic, maybe it would be useful to hunt down some brits working over there and ask about the process they went through to get a job, what could have been better etc. I know of 2 people working in Sydney, I could give you their details if you wish :)
I just made a facebook group in my country. I have 10 new members every day without promoting. Memers-people only from Czech want jobs abroad so I post interesting offers manually. But it is really time consuming and limited since I am not able to find all the good jobs. Or how could I contact and find emplyers that would send me offers that I coul post? So my question is: How many members should I have to try to make a simple website probably on wordpress? I need the other side being involved which are employers.
I believe you already know but I would love to suggest that you might need some HR agency licences in order to be intermediate between job seekers and companies.
Also, especially on the beginning, you need to be very careful when promoting open positions, and to post only jobs from serious and verified companies in order to avoid any kind of human trafficking related issues.
Besides those comments, the idea sounds great and definitely worth testing.
can you please share the link i will to apply

How about trying a job swapping portal? If A is in Finance & is looking to move to a Marketing role, & B is in Marketing looking to move to a Finance role then the 2 could swap jobs.
