If faced with the choice, would you rather a raise in pay, or the opportunity to choose when you work? In an ideal world, you could have both. As you well know, though, ideals don’t often line up with reality.
For about two weeks now, Instahire has been out in the world. You won’t find it on the app store (yet!) but some of our keenest Sydney-based supporters have been taking the app for a spin.
Instahire is forming a dynamic duo with the on-demand Chef marketplace CHEFIN’.
CHEFIN’s motto is “No effin’ stressin’,” a sentiment that speaks to Instahire’s core values as well. Both Instahire and CHEFIN’ are dedicated to providing the hospitality industry with skilled service staff precisely when needed.
So you’ve created your profile, you’ve got some spare time, and you’re ready to work. You may be wondering exactly how Instahire works for jobseekers.
Instahire may throw you for a loop because it’s so different to other job search platforms. That’s because it’s not really a job search platform at all. As a jobseeker, you won’t have to do any searching.
We’ve designed Instahire to give you – the employers – as much flexibility as you will ever need. With our understanding of the hospitality industry, we’ve designed every feature of the app for you to use your way. We just want to make your job easier when it comes to hiring, no matter what you need. So here are the four of the main ways that you can use Instahire to make your life easier.

In Australia, as many as 75% of face-to-face transactions are done without physical money, and that’s not even factoring the enormous amounts of shopping we do online.

“Obligation” is a heavy word. Obligation hangs over us, and it’s hardly ever spoken with a positive tone of voice. We don’t rush to fulfill our obligations, but more often than not push them to the side. When we do fulfill them, it’s usually pretty joyless.
The reason for this is that, by definition, we have no choice. We are obliged. Of course, some things are necessary, even though we resent them, but do you ever feel like obligations are sucking the joy out of things you used to love doing?
The Instahire app is hyped to announce the details of their partnership with Sydney’s premiere hospitality and entertainment staffing provider, the Clifford Wallace Agency.
Some people find it easy to meet new people and instantly develop a rapport with them. Others tend to be more reticent and can take time warming up. If you’re moving between workplaces all the time and doing a long of short-term, casual work, that can be a problem. Making the most of your relationship with your coworkers is making the most of your time at work.
Just about anyone below the age of thirty who’s been through the job search wringer knows how much things have changed. It’s tough, and it’s competitive, and you’ll nearly always have a chorus of dissenters telling you how easy it was in their day – just go in and shake the manager’s hand, give them your CV, and you’ll be sorted.
