Searching for Online & Freelance Employment

Many career fields and skills do not fall under traditional frameworks for employment. Writers, photographers, marketers, teachers and artists may be able to find work as online freelancers to continue improving their skillsets. Some of the jobs last for one assignment or translate into longer-term employment relationships with the companies who seek their talents. Many sites on the internet offer connections to available freelance work. Here are some places to find freelance work.

 

Upwork

Upwork offers freelance work in a variety of categories. Freelance jobs for web design, marketing, writing, developing web content, translation, data entry, photography and other online categories can be found by searching through the site. Many jobs are paid hourly with a timer monitoring your work, while others are paid by project. After finding potential work, the freelancer places a proposal so that the potential client may choose between competing bids.

Upwork is free, but a $10 a month upgrade gives freelancers more options to see competitors and client information. Upwork does require a service fee for connecting freelancers to clients. For the first $500 charge a client, the fee will be 20%. It drops to 10% for contracts between $500.01 and $10,000, then to 5% contracts above $10,000. The more work performed, the easier it is to receive contracts. Upwork helps freelancers find work easily.
