******************
CLARIFICATION
******************

This is a research contest. This contest requires that you *FIND* five websites that meet my criteria (my specifications).

You do *not* need to build any websites whatsoever for this contest. I chose a bad title for this contest.


***********
PRIZES
***********

I will award three prizes:

25 USD for first prize.
15 USD for second prize.
10 USD for third prize.

USD= US dollars

Sure. You probably know that USD= US dollars. But some people reading this might not know that.


*************************************
WHAT YOU NEED TO SUBMIT
*************************************

Contestants need to submit the following two things:

—ONE—
Five URLs (websites) for conventional and unconventional ways for finding independent freelance electrical engineers in Bosnia and Herzegovina.

I do not want twenty or thirty mediocre URLs (websites). That is why I am restricting you to only five URLs (websites). Please do not submit more than five URLs (websites).

and

—TWO—
No more than a total of two hundred words describing how you suggest I use the five URLs (websites).

Why I am restricting the number of words? Please see my comments below.

*********************
NO DUPLICATES
*********************

If an applicant has already submitted a particular URL such as:

[login to view URL]

for this contest you may not submit that same URL.


********************
BACKGROUND
********************

I am looking to recruit independent freelance electrical engineers to help me create an Internet of Things (IoT) [login to view URL] product.

If you live in Bosnia and Herzegovina you know all of the following. I am trying to persuade you that I have a sense of the difficult economic realities that electrical engineers face in Bosnia and Herzegovina.

As you know, like many countries in the Balkans, wages for engineers in Bosnia and Herzegovina are relatively low. Yet, as you would likely surmise, many talented electrical engineers live in Bosnia and Herzegovina.

Many electrical engineers in Bosnia and Herzegovina work at jobs that pay them perhaps 600 USD to 1000 USD per month. No they and their family are not starving. But they are unlikely to be saving much money either.

In order amass money (save money) to buy—for example—a car or an apartment or a house, many talented electrical engineers are eager to earn extra money. Of course, they know about freelancing.

But even if they try using sites like Freelancer.com and [login to view URL] they are probably discouraged. Very discouraged. Typically these guys are neither salespeople nor business people. But to succeed on sites like Freelancer.com and [login to view URL] sales and business savvy are necessary.


***************
SCHEDULE
***************

I am very flexible when it comes to the number of hours an electrical engineer would need to work. I do not intend to have one electrical engineer complete the entire project. Rather, I intend to have several electrical engineers simultaneously working on the project. As a result an electrical engineer might twenty hours one week but then zero hours the next two weeks. It will depend largely on each electrical engineer’s availability.


*****************************************************
WHERE I HAVE ADVERTISED IN THE PAST
*****************************************************

I have advertised on:

- Freelancer.com (obviously)
- [login to view URL]
- [login to view URL]
- Fiverr.com.

I have been in contact with scores of electrical engineers. I have tested dozens of them. Most of them have not passed the test but I have given them. Therefore I am still looking for more electrical engineers.

Feedback do Empregador

“Irenes won first prize in my contest. He did an excellent job of researching for me. He seems like the kind of person who has a lot of energy and wants to "get things done" quickly and effectively. I am more of a thinker than a doer. I need "doers" like Irnes to help me get things done otherwise my plans never actually materialize.”

    Although this website does not specialize in jobs for electrical engineers it appears that electrical engineers probably do look at this website when they are interested in finding employment....

    Perhaps I'm wrong but I doubt that electrical engineers look at this website to find employment. Despite all of their claims in my experience government websites usually do not help people find jobs. I suppose that These websites like this are potentially public relations stunts designs to persuade citizens of the government is actually working diligently to help them find employment.

      You are welcome to enter this contest but because you are an electrical engineer I infer you might want to work with me as electrical engineer. I am not interested in working with Croatians. Those beautiful beaches bring in many tourists and much foreign currency. That drive up wages compared to other Balkan countries.

    I am not interested in universities. Please do not recommend a university to me. But I am interested in university student groups. What is the difference? Universities are usually bureaucratic and difficult to deal with whereas university student groups are usually a group of students who have a common interest and are eager to find part-time work.

    I like the site but it is not targeted at engineers.

    4. http://www.agencijaspektar.com/cat/trazite-radnike/ 2 out of 10
    This site seems to offer newspaper ads. I doubt the electrical engineers I am targeting look in newspapers for jobs. Perhaps I am wrong. I don’t know.

    5. mojakarijera.info

    This site seems like a general job website. I suppose some of the electrical engineers I am targeting look here for full-time employment.

      ... If I were to be allowed to post my freelance gig (freelance job) on this forum I suppose I would likely receive several replies from interested and qualified applicants.

      This was my fault. I should have excluded universities. Generally I'm not very interested in dealing with universities. They tend to be your bureaucratic and officious. I might be wrong but I assume that they are generally uninterested in working with small business people looking to hire freelancers for gigs.

      On a scale 1 to 10 I rate it an 4 for my needs but I will increase your score for this to 8 because I failed to exclude universities....

    This project is best suited to people who were born and raised in Bosnia and Herzegovina. I do not want you to waste your time on this project. Therefore, if you were not born and raised in Bosnia and Herzegovina please do not submit anything to this contest. Frankly, I thought that was obvious but I received a submission from a freelancer from Latvia who was apparently not born and raised in Bosnia and Herzegovina. Therefore, I decided to clearly stipulate this point.

    Naturally I want many freelancers to submit entries for this contest. I am concerned that if some clever freelancers were to assume that other contestants would be likely to spend much time typing up verbose (wordy, lengthy) entries, these clever freelancers might be disinclined to enter this contest because they might erroneously hypothesize that I am looking for verbiage (words) instead of URLs (websites). Actually I am primarily interested in the URLs (websites) not the verbiage (words). Therefore, please do not submit more than 200 words.
