There are certain tasks that require a substantial amount of work performing dull activities. Researching catering for a corporate event can be considered one of these cases for many people. Companies can use online websites like to allow people with more free time to do these tasks for them. This allows the company to not have to hire new individuals, which is especially important in these dire economic times. Moreover, companies can offer higher cash incentives to get certain projects accomplished. Once the pay seems reasonable enough, then the work will be adequate. If the pay rate is too low, it appears as if the company does not care about the worker and the work will be poor. Hence, if one wants to get a certain amount of people to research catering companies adequately and carefully, then the compensation must be fair for his/her time.

A seeker could be asked to create a list of catering companies that could be used for a corporate event. Firstly the solver, after finding all the companies either online or in paper phonebooks, could list them in terms of price. Secondly the solver could list them in terms of their specialization, e.g. if one catering company specializes in cakes and this is also one of the seekers important criteria then this would top the list. Thirdly the solver could provide a ranking of caterers based on reviews found. The solver should be able to find the most appropriate caterer and if required the solver could contact them to check availability and book them for a date specified by the seeker.
