Web work platform WorkFu launches

Billed by its creators as the “social platform at the heart of your working life”, WorkFu has now launched. Designed to be appropriate for both talent hunters and also those looking for opportunities, the site goes beyond merely enabling you to list experience and skills. Integration with social networks and a personal bookshelf provide additional insight to users with profiles, and while co-founder Mike Kus told .net he has respect for LinkedIn, he believes such a site “can be done better, cooler, faster and made more relevant,” hence WorkFu.

We spoke to Kus about the site, how the team focussed on usability and elegance, and plans for the future of WorkFu.
