One of our new Chamber members is and they are making a big impression on our community. I have seen social media mention her new site and even some press in the Citizen-Times. The premise of Jobbitz is simple, you have things that need to be done, Asheville has people who can do them. Take a few moments and check out the site today.

Here is what a few people have to say about jobbitz: is Asheville’s new locally created website, designed to connect people who have immediate “help-wanted” needs with people who need or want to earn extra cash. It is a community-based website that hosts free postings of neighborhood jobs available immediately. Examples of job categories include general house/yard work, skilled, professional, childcare, volunteering, bartering, etc.

Samples of job postings so far have included re-setting a mailbox in exchange for Italian porcelain (barter section), weeding, home remodeling, junk-hauling, wood-chopping, yellow-jacket nest removing, electrical outlets updating, painting – the list goes on and on!'s goal right now is to get more jobs posted! Our plea is to think about any odd jobs or “honey-do's” and post it on Give your neighbors a chance to earn money while helping you out at the same time.

Visit to read testimonials from your Asheville neighbors who have already used the website. You can also visit to see video reviews on YouTube.

Great idea! Love Ashville Area, very eclectic and sure there are some great part time tradesman and handymen there to connect up with. We do something similar in Atlanta, GA and are always really excited to see other handyman services / bulletin boards helping people get the things they need done and they can afford to do them. We'll keep checking this blog and keep rooting for small, american business start-ups like jobbitz that make good sense and provide value to us as consumers :-)
