Working as a freelancer gives you the freedom to work at the comforts of your own home. As a freelancer, you can leverage on your existing skills to find great freelancer jobs. Writers, web designers, typists, and even recruiters can work as freelancers.
So where can you find your gigs? Nowadays, there are several job market sites that can help you find freelance jobs. There’s Odesk.com, Elance.com, and Getafreelancer.com just to name a few. This is where you will begin your journey. To be on the safe side, I suggest that you try to read reviews and feedback before you even sign up.
Next thing you have to think about is how will your client pay you? My suggestion is for you to create your Paypal account. There are other modes by which you can receive payment but with regards to costs and fees, PayPal is the cheapest.
In my next posts, I’ll share about the job market site I personally use and tips on how to land your first freelance job.
