Layoff Talent – Django project just launched

11 December 2008

Andrew and I spent a few days this week putting together a new Django project.

It’s called Layoff Talent and it’s a place for people in the tech industry who have been laid off and are looking for a new job. They can add a simple profile and then hopefully be picked up by employers looking for new talent.

It’s similar in some ways to Django People or the Djangogigs developer listings, but specifically for people who have been laid off and not restricted to Django developers.

There’s nothing ground breaking from a development point of view, but it’s another example of how Django makes it easy to put out a full-featured site in a short time. Of course, we’ll be adding more features as the site gets popular.

If you know someone who has been laid off, please tell them about

  1. The profile page shows no entries, though I’m certain that there is at least one (mine).

  2. Hi Trevor.

    All entries are approved before they appear on the site (to keep spam and inappropriate stuff off there). Yours is live now.
