John Everett Creighton, an MIT graduate with a degree in physics and nuclear engineering, created JobPoacher.com, a job site based on the concept that it's easier to find a job when you already have one -- assuming you have a degree in physics and nuclear engineering, I suppose.
Part of the beauty of JobPoacher.com is its simplicity. Someone looking for a job only needs to enter the most basic information about his or her current situation: job title, salary, location, and what they're looking for. There's no need to share your name, upload a resume, or write a cover letter. Creighton says that's all by design. "I'm starting to see it as the Twitter of job searching. I think the old way where people obsessed over every comma on their resume is outdated because no one really reads those."
JobPoacher.com has been active for less than two months, but more than 3,000 people have posted their profiles, hoping to be poached by a prospective employer. One such employer reached out to Creighton to sing the site's praises and share how he found a quality employee from the site in very little time.
