Comments From Testers
Mooochy93 - “So I'm interested in a gig economy, job location, New York. Uh, I could turn alerts on if I wanted or off. Um, I imagine if I had them on, they would like send me an email. Um, so I'm hit save.”
summerinthecity - “I would check off, I'm interested in gig economy jobs, um, set my country and location great. That's done. Um, and then click save and it looks like my alert is now set and it's active. So that was great. That was a, that was really easy to do. Um, and also fast too”
squaline - “So I guess it set this up, but then I'm wondering like gig economy jobs can mean a lot of different things. Like how do I customize what type? Like I would want to be able to make it a little more specific. 'cause for instance, like I'm not gonna be doing like DoorDash or anything like that, but on the other hand I might do, you know, some kind of gig jobs with um, illustration or something like that.”
RK$ - “Nice, nice. I nice. Now you're presumably every gig economy job in New York City, you're gonna get an alert about, that's probably gonna be a lot. Um, but I wonder how you'd be able to filter that down from there.”
