Sometimes simple messaging is just not adequate enough when asking a stranger to consider them as a partner. That is why we came up with Applications for Consideration.
If you see someone you are really interested in, then you have the option of applying to this person to be considered by them for a specific role. The application makes it easy for you to specify why you are the best choice, and it makes it easy for the receiver to categorize and review applicants.
In addition, to restrict applications to serious applicants only, the receiver of the application may decide to charge a processing fee for each application submitted and reviewed. This is typically between $1 and $5. Only verified members are allowed to charge for applications. The applicant is charged AFTER the application is fully reviewed, not when it is sent.
