Seems like sth I'd like to try, if some day I was responsible for hiring people. But, from my perspective, one piece of info is missing: are the people OK with working as contractors/freelancers, rather than being permanent employees?

(B.t.w. what if companies could post questions to the maybe-applicants? and other companies could see the answers too. The questions and answers would appear at the bottom of the profile page.)

Hey! We have a field that allows you to specify whether you're primarily interested in contract, freelance, or full-time roles.

RE: Questions to candidates: We've considered precisely that, with a very similar implementation. We may build it soon!

This looks like an awesome concept. I'm going to fill a profile in the next few days, as I was just updating my resume. Hopefully I can have success as one of the site's early members.

Hey folks - I'm one of the cofounders of Limbo. Thanks for linking. Let me know if you have any questions, I'd love to hear them.

I'm just wondering if you got this domain from a squatter or you were lucky enough to find it untaken?

It's much better to hire when you know what are the goals and aspirations of the people you're hiring.

Very good idea. Very good.

Very nice!
