Why the contribution is important

Businesses have told us: "I am really good at running my business but I don’t have the time or in-house skills that I need to make the most of the digital options that are out there. I need an easy, flexible and cost-effective way to find and hire people who have cutting-edge skills and knowledge so they can help me when I need it."

    this would be great, if easy to access and graduates are willing to go into businesses and assist and explain for full implementation. must be aware of regional businesses

    Ribit's a good start, but I think it needs a bit of work. The search needs relevance ranking and it would be nice if you could bulk-message graduates, or even if you could upload your profile and get auto-matched.

    Graduates have no practical skills on the why and how. If you want the best from technology you need professionals with years of experience not graduates who are working it out as they go with no real life experience to draw from.
