Online job opportunities for freelancers exist through job market place websites, which serve as meeting platforms for both employers and providers. Location of one or the other does not matter as the Internet enables people to work together as if they were in the same office. Basic computer skills are needed in addition to one's competence and line of work. In order to find freelance jobs one has to first register for free or a small fee with one of the online services. A profile has then to be written, a job resume or experience details posted. Having a special skill in demand certainly helps to find work and a portfolio showing the prospective employer one's ability is the way to get jobs faster. It may be long at first to start receiving job proposals, so it is advised to reply to job offers that are of interest instead of waiting passively. One has to make sure that he has the necessary skills to complete the work satisfactorily and within the agreed deadline before applying, as not doing so may terminate prematurely his online career. Providers receive comments and usually marks by employers who describe their experience with them. It is certain that a provider with good marks and comments is on his way to get more and more work by other employers seeing him as reliable and competent. Good attitude and perfect work will certainly be much more rewarding in the long term. In the contrary, a provider with bad comments from angry and unhappy job posters mean early retirement. Applying for another job site may do the trick for a time, but at the end these comments may stay associated with one's name and find their way in simple Google searches. Nobody wants this to happen. As no one can get away with substandard work without long term consequences, it is better to think twice before taking on a freelance job online. Everyone has a special competence on something, and that is the one to use to apply for jobs. Even if the situation is difficult and money is dearly needed, targeting the correct job for the right competence is the best way to go. Most of providers work in graphic or web design, HTML or PHP programming, Flash animation, but these fields have a lot of competition indeed. Hopefully, not only web related jobs are available and in demand. Other less crowded job opportunities exist in accounting, finance, creative writing, translation, engineering and manufacturing. What is important for both employers and providers alike is to have a place where they can work together efficiently and safely to everyone's satisfaction, and that will guarantee payment at job completion. Most of the freelance job sites offer this for the peace of mind of both parties.
