The Dole Que’ – Networking the unemployed – Elf Knows It [ARCHIVED]
The Dole Que’
I recently put my newest edition to The Elf’s Internet library online, it’s a social network for people who are unemployed, seeking work, or working for themselves.
The whole idea behind The Dole Que’ is to have a simple medium for people to share work ideas with one another, or even just forget about the worries and mingle!
Quick run down of some of the features

- Twitter integration – You can have your tweets live in your profile, or also post to your twitter account from your dashboard

Why is the called The Dole Que’ and no The Dole Queue?
Two simple reasons, dolequeue.com was taken, and I personally like Que’ with an apostrophe better!
Do I have to be unemployed to join up?
‘Course not! You can join up to give a helping hand, or even just mingle yourself.
If I use my Facebook profile, do I have to update my Dole Que’ profile when I change my Facebook one?
Nope!, The Dole Que’ will sync the two. 😉
The Dole Que’ is currently running in BETA, which means we are still growing, and with you, means we can grow quicker!
