LEARN ABOUT SYDEWORK
College Cleaners LLC. started in May 2018 with a UW-Oshkosh student passing around flyers to earn extra money in order to pay for his schooling. He helped many different people get "at home" jobs done and had a vision to help out college students and people at home everywhere. This vision has became what is SydeWork.
College Cleaners Article 2019
Colin Milligan, Current Business Owner of SydeWork, partnered with Dr. Zaid Altahat, University of Wisconsin-Parkside Computer Science Professor, in May of 2019 to start the development of a mobile app to scale this vision to every town or city with a university nearby. This mobile app will serve as a platform to provide hardworking individuals with a variety of flexible jobs (sydework), working around their usual school or work schedule. The SydeWork platform also increases the well-being of the surrounding community, by providing them with a hardworking labor force to get their "at home" tasks completed, & getting more done in their lives.
SydeWorkers are determined, trustworthy, and readily available. They are not all college students either. We DO NOT limit our labor force... We provide SydeWorkers of all ages and with all different skills & capabilities. For example, some specialize in house cleaning while others take on heavy lifting/moving jobs . Productive individuals benefit from SydeWork because they can complete side jobs for extra Syde money while they are free from their other responsibilities in life.
Many of our customers cannot complete tasks for many different reasons:
No time available from their full-time job
Physically fatiguing or unable due to age, disability, surgery, etc.
Too busy taking care of children
Out of town on vacation
Don't have the skills/tools on how to complete a specific task
Do not know of anyone who can help
