    I cannot speak to the state of freelancing in other parts of the world, but based on my experience as manager of a website that lists virtual assistants and "gig-economy" work contracts for those interested in such endeavors, I would say that there currently seems to be an overabundance of available resources online. From my vantage point it doesn't seem like any one site has much more pizazz than the next. It really depends on where you want to live and what type of contract work you are looking for; if you want jobs near your home, then jobs may only be advertised on local sites.

    Freelancers come from a variety of backgrounds and expertise, so there is not just one place to apply. It's best to research what kind of freelancer companies are interested in hiring. There are registration sites that provide a portfolio for professionals who want to be considered for projects based on their skills, but some businesses prefer applicants with experience working on the type of products they sell or use themselves. Every business has different needs, so find out if they post open positions by researching resources like LinkedIn or job boards like Indeed.

    Don't bother with freelancing. Freelancing is extremely hard, you get paid less than if you were an employee, and you don't get benefits. It's better to find a job at a huge company where they will take care of your health insurance than to struggle through freelance life + doing all the work that your employer should be having done for them by their HR department. The only people who should ever really do freelance work are out-of-work professionals looking to stay active in their field while waiting for something better, but even then it pays significantly worse on average ????

    It really depends on the type of freelancing job you desire. For example, there are a number of blogs that pay per post or article, or freelance content writers who complete pieces for clients by the hour. One freelance site that I have personal experience with is upwork.com which can be helpful if you're looking for bigger projects such as software development work. Additionally there are a few different types of freelancer niches to consider including graphic designers, coaches, educators and more!

    Crowdsourcing sites are one of the most popular methods for freelancers to find work. Sites like oDesk, Fiverr, Freelancer, and Elance provide freelance opportunities in every conceivable field. If you're not sure where to start looking for clients, some crowdsourcing sites specify fields of expertise they'll be hiring for on the homepage. Find the perfect site that suits your skill set-from design to software engineering-and then sign up! If you have a really specialized skillset or industry experience then it's best to skip crowdsourcing websites and go straight to client leads who might be interested in your work.

    I would suggest to google "businesses hiring freelancers" and filter the results off the top. Other places to consider are Amazon, Fiverr, Upwork, or Craigslist under "contract work." You can also search online for a company that is hiring freelance employees. If you're an expert in a certain field there may be a company looking for someone like you! What kind of freelancers are we talking about here? Freelance writers, designers, programmers and other professionals who do not require physical presence for their assigned tasks. This includes both remote workers as well as local contractors requiring staff augmentation from time-to-time.
