Finding Freelance Work Online

Freelance jobs is when a person sells services to employers without a long-term commitment. You would be under an independent contract. Normally being a freelance worker means that you would be working off the books. When you work off the books, you get paid “In hand” or in this case through pay pal or check in mail, depending on your own personally situation and the terms of that job.

a lot of people would prefer this option in case they are currently receiving unemployment benefits and would like to get extra money on top of that. Or for some reason you may not have a social security number which means you cant work in the united states. As a result Freelance “off the books” work would be better for you.

THE PROS

Off the books work (Tax man don’t have to know)

You get your full pay all at once. With Freelance jobs the minute your done with the assignment you get paid immediately. The best part about this is, how fast you get paid is up to you. If you have to write an article for a blog and it pays you $50 to complete it in 1 week. For most of us we can write an article in about 2 hours instead of 1 week. So the moment your done, you get paid.

THE CONS

Not steady work – since this is freelance work you get paid once you complete the job. And when your job is done, then that’s it. You either have to find another freelance job on your own or maybe the person you were working with will refer you to someone else. Better yet that same person can have another job already lined up for you. So its very important to make a good impression, get the job done on time or early and make sure you do good work.

If your the type of person that has programming skills, great writing skills, blog designers, website designers, research shoppers, travel writing, business writing and much more. There are lots of great freelance jobs online that will help you earn extra money or maybe start a new career. The hard part is trying to find the best one for your talents and finding a replicable job board for people that are looking.

Some great sources to find freelance jobs would be to search it on large search engines like Google, Yahoo and Bing. But what a lot of people don’t know is that you can find pretty good jobs in Craiglist as well. Craigslist is a very large classified ad website. They pretty much have everything available. Jobs, services and you can buy things etc. The best way to search for freelance work on Craigslist would be to visit the site and on the left hand side there’s a search bar. All you have to do is type in freelance, or freelance jobs and maybe the state you live in and everything will come up for you. However while searching on this website please be careful. There are lots of “Jobs” out there that aren’t really jobs at all. They just want you to submit the information, like on a resume for example and from there they use your information for what they really want. As a result you never hear from them again.

Just be mindful that not everyone on Craigslist is there to get you a job. A good amount of them are there to help themselves. Regardless that is still a wonderful source to find some freelance work online. Another good place to find freelance work would be on Job Boards. Now Job Boards is pretty much a fancy way of saying the “Help Wanted Ad” but for the internet. A job board is a place you go to online that has employers looking for employees on a contract basis (Freelance). Only freelance jobs are listed on the job board therefore you don’t have to go through the extra hassle of filtering out freelance work from a regular job. As a result you can find your potential work much quicker and make your searching more effective.
