Great Websites For Business Tips

As the “gig economy” continues to flourish, more and more professionals have been taking their talents on the road and finding freelance or contract-based gigs with a wide variety of companies.

The plethora of job-listing websites and social networks out there has made it easier than ever to track down freelance gigs. But where should you begin? Whether you’re looking to make some extra income or want to become a full-time freelancer, here are 14 sites that can connect you with great work opportunities.

1. Aquent

Digital creative and marketing professionals can find work around the globe through Aquent staffing agency. You can choose from remote or on-site opportunities, and even look for contract-to-hire positions. The company also offers practical skills training through its free online courses, which can give freelancers a significant edge in the marketplace.

2. College Recruiter

Most college students could use more cash — and what better way to earn it than freelancing while at school? College Recruiter allows students and recent graduates to search for part-time work or a possible career in various industries.

3. The Creative Group

A division of staffing services firm Robert Half, The Creative Group specializes in job placement for professionals in creative fields like marketing, art, graphic design, copywriting, photography and more. While the listings include some contract-to-hire and full-time positions, you can use the “freelance” filter to narrow your search.

4. Croogster

On Croogster, freelancers and the people who want to hire them can find exactly what they need. Anyone offering a service (writing, designing, app development, marketing, etc.) can list their “product” — what they do, how much it costs and the anticipated turnaround time — and clients can purchase the service through a buy button, as they would on an e-commerce platform. Prospective clients can also post specific projects that freelancers can respond to if they’re interested. Though the company is based in India, Croogster is currently developing its presence in the U.S. and U.K. markets.
