Finding the perfect job in any city can be difficult and Vancouver is no exception. One man has taken a different approach in finding that perfect position. Potential Vancouver employers, meet Robbie Cooke.

We sat down with Robbie and he delivered this message to potential employers:

Hi Vancouver,

My name is Robbie Cooke and I have created the website to take a unique approach finding work here in the city.

I moved to Vancouver late last year and after applying to a bunch of jobs online, I knew I had to go in a different direction to find that perfect position. I don’t know a lot of people here and I think this is a way for me to connect and network in a creative and fun way.

The concept behind the site is if someone can connect me to the right person and their connection results in me getting a job, I will pay them 10% of the starting salary!

So Vancouver, I need your help. Head to to find out more!”

We’ve done our part. Good luck on your job search Robbie.
