Why 6prog is a private network.
- For clients: Frequently, clients receive ‘adapted’ CVs for particular freelance roles. By moving away from applications and into a profile based reference system, 6prog takes away this issue. For more details see Lee Lam from DITCH.
- For recruiters and networkers: A one sided database of names is so ‘pre-GDPR’. Therefore, 6prog’s people page updates itself when your contacts change their data such as recent project, new skills or availability. Connect to people who you want to trade with, not just to extend your friends list.
- For freelancers: We know you are looking for work but do you want everyone approaching you all of the time? Even when you are in a project? I know. I can hear the screams of “…but I haven’t even done ‘x’ skill so why do they keep emailing me?” 6prog has preferences for available and unavailable.
- The Marketplace: The marketplace doesn’t show my full profile. Correct. It enables those reading it to assess it on its merits, not by your gender or race. We firmly believe this will enhance diversity.
6prog – the multisided platform built for all members, working for all members.
