Why is there a wait time to apply to jobs

I have received hundreds of emails from premium members requesting early access to jobs.

We put a lot of time and effort to implement this feature. However, now we are getting emails from non-premium (but paid) members suggesting that the wait is unfair and we are somehow getting greedy.

Why did we do it the way we did?

Giving early access to premium members was obvious and fair. So the decision to give them early access was easy.


All premium members are not equal. Some pay just 1 coin for premium membership, others pay 5000 or more.


we couldn't treat both premium members equally. 

That's why..

We give gradual access in a period of 2 hours according to their premium memberhip coins.


The maximum delay from highest premium member to non premium member is just 2 hours. It's not a lot, just enough to give that extra edge to premium members but not enough to cause excessive delay for the student.


Here's how early access to premium members work: 

  • Find matching tutors for a post.
  • Find the highest premium coins from the matching tutors.
  • The tutor with the highest coins gets the first access.
  • Gradually, all premium members get access according to the coins they use for premium membership.
  • After 2 hours, the post is available to all members. 

For eg. if the premium tutor with highest coins has 5000 coins premium membership, the access timeline for premium members would be as follows:



I believe we have implemented it fairly. Please let us know in the comments if you disagree (or agree).
