Skillendar helps you to reach out to your local community more easily and effectively.
Regardless of whether you are looking for someone with a particular skill or just someone who could give you a hand with something of a general nature, the process is very simple.
Once you have registered, follow the steps below to find the right person for the right job.
- Search the skill name or ‘Time’ if it’s a general help that you are after.
- Choose the preferred date on the availability calendar.
- Review the profiles of available providers and send booking requests
Before sending a booking request, remember to read reviews about the providers and check their ratings. Looking at the number of connections and checking whether the provider knows someone in your network i.e. mutual connections also will give you a good idea about the credibility of the provider. You can always post a message about a provider on the community wall and receive feedback on their previous work.
If you have a specific question to ask before the booking you could do so via the message option or the Skype link (if the provider is online) on the provider's profile. You could also book an initial discussion/interview with the provider via Skillendar.
There are a lot of open minded people who would share their time or provide a service free of charge. However, please verify the payment terms on the provider's profile before sending any booking request. You will be able to propose the service charge based on the guide price mentioned on the provider's profile while making your request.
You can send booking requests to more than one service provider. You will then have to wait for their acceptance. The booking will become a bounding agreement only when you finally confirm the booking and all the service and payment terms.
Also getting connected to more people in your neighbourhood via Skillendar will help you reach the right provider because many members will only share their time or provide service to the people who are in their network or community. After all; exploring your neighbourhood and getting connected to more people is what the community is all about.
