Because let’s face it, most of us began our freelancing careers with a ready-made profile.
Pinoy freelancers work with clients all over the world, people we’ve never met in person or on the internet.
We get our work from freelancing marketplaces like oDesk.com, Elance.com, and Freelancer.ph because everything is already in place. Clients and buyers are already searching for people to hire. They are already interested in looking and paying for online work.
I started out with oDesk.com in 2009, and it’s amazing to see how it’s become one of the most popular marketplaces Pinoys flock to find online work. I’ve built my freelancing career through the site that it’s given me the resources I need to extend my business outside of oDesk’s walls.
I’m sure you have a success story to tell about your favorite freelancing marketplace. I’d love to hear about your experience and what tips to offer to those contemplating on signing up as well.
