Have skillz? Willing to work for free?

TechFlash has the scoop that the neighborhood favorite “Copper Cart” will be hosting a StartUp Job Fair for unemployed workers who would like to work for free. The event is designed for “bummed out job seekers – who are willing to work for nothing – for cash strapped startups”.

At first, I scoffed and deemed this ridiculous in my prideful mind. Then, I got off my 10 ft unicycle and realized that this would actually be a worthwhile opportunity. If you haven’t worked in a while, it’s a great chance to keep your skills sharp and immerse yourself in a motivating start-up environment. Not to mention, working for free should lead to networking opportunities and a healthy morale boost.
