    Sites that offer blogging jobs are the first places to look. There are also sites for keyword search jobs, writing projects, and translations on various niche topics. The easiest job board to use is Craigslist. Type in what you're looking for and filter by location. For example if you type "Marketing" but not "Chicago", your results won't be useful because all of them will be outside of Chicago so it's unlikely any one will show up in this list of 10 or 20 or 50 job listings which pop up on my screen each time I do this search for Marketing Jobs in Chicago with the filter turned off entirely (what they want is more than just marketing, they want strategic account management which indicates $$$).

    Freelance sites are always a good place to start, but retail stores often hire on the spot for part-time work. You can also try contacting HR departments for large companies that you'd want to work for, or writing up a brief cover letter and mailing it off with your resume. It's also worth considering taking on temporary jobs where you can pick up lots of experience right away, instead of waiting around in the hope that something will come along which suits your skillset better.

    There are many websites that are specific to freelance opportunities in various subjects, including UpWork.com, Freelancer.com, Guru.com, Toptal. Freelance jobs can often be found by putting your area of expertise as a job title on sites such as Indeed and Simply Hired as well as on third-party websites such as LinkedIn and Twitter - some even offer reminders for those looking for more work! An advanced Google search could also lead you some great possibilities if you know what types of companies you're interested in working with so it's worth taking the first steps and giving them a look over first before considering others.

    The best way to find gigs as a freelancer is through networking. There are two networks I recommend for entrepreneurial freelancers (or those looking for entrepreneurial gigs): the Young Entrepreneur Council and Elance. YEC, which is made up of young entrepreneurs like you interested in building businesses that change the world, has an incredible job board with tons of opportunities. The other network, Elance, is very popular among long-term (often full-time) remote workers who require flexibility in their schedule. One benefit of using these networks is that they both allow companies to post jobs without charge!
