WEBSITE, Round 4: Offstagejobs vs. AirBnB
« on: Dec 11, 2014, 12:00 am »
Rounding out the first level of this tournament, we have a showdown between Offstagejobs and AirBnB- you couldn't find two teams that are more different in this tournament. They come from opposite sides of the “useful technology” spectrum, but both are powerhouses in their own right.

Offstagejobs is your one-stop theatrical job listing website. From internships to full-time positions, local to touring, top to bottom, this site has it all.

Offering unique options for housing, AirBnB has transformed the way people travel. Rather than a dingy, boring motel room, find yourself in a cool and interesting apartment, meeting interesting people and having a more fulfilling travel experience. On the flip side, rent out your spare room for some extra cash! Check out the site to find a fun getaway, or a great, affordable housing alternative for your next business trip.

Which of these two will live to fight another day, facing off against Youtube in the Sweet 16? Vote now!

I'll admit to never having used Airbnb, but I visit OffStageJobs every single day- not because I always need a job, but because it's always good to see who's always hiring, who's paying what to whom, theatre companies I've never heard of, etc. It's pretty invaluable research for someone just starting their professional career.

Despite having recently used AirBnB quite successfully to book places for longer sits on tour (kitchens are so exciting!), I must say Offstagejobs has been a significantly more useful professional tool.

Lots of runaways in this round. I think 3 out of 4 matches will be pretty close to shut outs.
