A Site Where Getting Poached Is The Whole Point

A website that caters to people wanting to be "poached?" I give it a month before employers start using the site to see which one of their employees are planning on quitting. eek!

When building the site in his spare time, John Everett Creighton said he drew on his own experience. As an MIT graduate with a degree in physics and nuclear engineering, he was in hot demand when entering the job market and had to juggle multiple offers and rounds of negotiations. Creighton sought to simplify that process by putting the skilled worker in the driver's seat: "I thought, what if it's the other way around. These companies need good engineers more than the engineers need them."
