PODI - Make Your Passion Your Profession
Explain your idea in details:
The percentage of an unemployed population is still quite high and some people forced to take jobs that are not their areas of expertise, the jobs that they do not like for very low pay or beyond their abilities. PODI is an app to match their passion and talents with the available jobs around the world. Our goal is to help people find their talents and use them to the fullest. "Everyone is gifted, but some people never open their package." PODI helps people discover their passion, talent, and purpose through various tests, quizzes, games, and coaching whether free or paid. PODI also helps connect these talents with job vacancies around the world with programs designed to find and match vacancies in worldwide job portals that collaborate with PODI. People can also make their profile and their personal branding including their hobbies, passions, talents, what they can do well, what their particular niche is. They make an advertisement for themselves. A company that has a job vacancy is the one who is looking for the right worker through PODI app. For example, a man advertises himself as a passionate photographer and one of his hobbies is taking candid photographs of children. On the other hand, there is a children's clothing company need to hire a photographer to shoot product catalogs. PODI will match and connect them and get an incentive for matchmaking services.

Everyone has passion and talent in particular niche, but many are still hidden, they have not yet aware of their talent, have not found it or even they already know what their talent is, but they do not know how to connect it to the world, so their talents are buried. In fact, there must be someone out there who needs their talents and willing to pay a decent fee. PODI is the solution of the problem, to connect talent to the world.
