Yes. The dollar amount must be from $1-$100,000.

What is a virtual job?

If a Moonlighter can fulfill your job remotely, you should categorize it as a virtual job, but if your job requires that they work at a specific location, add the location to your job post.

Why does my job post have an image that does not match?

If you post your job without adding an image or skills, we’ll automatically give it an image and skill tags based on the job title you provide. If they aren’t a perfect fit, you can always update your post content later.

Why does the image matter?

The brain processes images 60,000 times faster than text. Including a vivid image that best represents your job can help you capture attention and pique interest.

What are the different categories?

  • Home & Handyman – Landscapers, Repairmen, Builders, Installers, Handymen
  • Tech & Web – Web, App, & Graphic Design, Social Media, Computer Help
  • Family – House, Baby, & Pet Sitters, Cleaning, Tutors, Errand Runners
  • Transportation – Drivers, Movers, Auto-related work
  • Business Services – Customer Service, Marketers, Lawyers, Virtual Assistants
  • Events – Photographers, Caterers, DJs, Bartenders
  • Artisan – Artists, Hand Crafted Goods
  • Health & Fitness – Personal Trainers, Sports Lessons/Coaches, Masseurs, Beauticians

Why do the keywords matter?

Using a combination of relevant, broad and specific keywords can help Moonlighters find your job post and increase your exposure to more qualified candidates.

Is there anything I can do to get more qualified responses to my job post?

Make sure that your post is in the right category and includes relevant job keywords. If your skill tags are too broad, consider replacing them with more specific keywords. Ensure that your post title is clear and include more details about experience and skill requirements in your job description.
