Job Spotter is an app run by employment giant Indeed. The goal is to take pictures of any “help wanted” signs in local businesses and submit them to the app. Once the photos are approved, you receive points that you can redeem for Amazon gift cards. You must take and post photos within certain parameters to be eligible.
Bang for Your Buck
You can earn up to 150 points per submission. However, the points rewarding system is vague. The only direction provided is, “Submissions of help wanted signs from small businesses that appear to truly indicate a current opportunity to get hired at that location is worth the most.”
Mass-produced corporate chains are worth fewer points. The app gives examples of submissions and the number of points rewarded for them. When you have enough points, you redeem them in the form of gift cards within the app. This takes about two weeks to process, and a hundred points amount to $1.
Ease of Use
Once you download the app, sign up is easy and takes very little time. You do so with your email address, and once you have it confirmed, you’re ready to go. It’s important to note that in order for you to be able to submit a photo, you have to take it using the app. The sign must be in focus; there can’t be any people in the frame; and the second photo containing the storefront and name of the store has to be clearly legible. Submissions are usually processed within 24 hours.
