Freelancing is a great way to work from home.
Freelancers do anything from creating to graphic designs to computer programming. They are often hired by businesses (small and large) for a particular project. It’s a win-win situation. The small business owner gets his website up and running or his press release written without having to create a new position in his company to get the job done.
The freelancer gets to do what they love to do from home. The big question is, how do the business owner and freelancer find each other? They do it through one of the freelance sites below (or shameless plug, on post like this one here on InfoSearched.com) 🙂
On these five sites below, projects are posted, and freelancers bid on how much they would charge for the work. It is up to the company/person posting the job to choose which freelancer they would like to work with.
Guru is the largest freelance site out there. Their site connects over 520,000 freelancers with over 30,000 businesses and employers. Guru is organized into several categories and subcategories from Web and Graphic Design to Programming to Business Consulting.
Elance is the other big player in freelance sites that cover a wide variety of freelance work. Like Guru.com, you can find projects from creative work like graphics and writing to computer programming.
This freelance site caters primarily to programmers, coders, software engineers, and IT professionals. You will find projects ranging from simple HTML pages to programming jobs that could last for several months.
In addition to finding projects posted on various subjects, you will also find an extensive library of articles of interest to freelancers and services and products, a forum, and a newsletter.
As the name suggests, this site focuses primarily on freelance work for programmers. You will find web and graphic design projects to flash to software development. They even have a new section that will allow you to sell your written scripts.
Freelancing is a great way to get started working from home. You can easily take on a few small projects while keeping your day job. You can start gaining experience, add to your résumé and build a client base. This will make the transition to working from home exclusively much smoother. It is also a great way to test the water and see if you would like to work on projects from home in the long run.
