You know all about looking for work–that’s why you’re reading this. You’re looking for a full-time, permanent job because that’s what you’re supposed to do after you graduate. But what if that’s not for you? Or what if you’re just trying to earn some money until you find the right gig? You can freelance. But where do you find those kinds of opportunities? Here’s a hint: it rhymes with freelance. Elance is a Mountain View, CA based company that has built the “world’s leading platform for online employment.” And they really mean online employment. If you’re looking to work (or hire) on an hourly or project basis and meeting face to face isn’t important, then Elance is the place to go.
Considering that I studied Industrial and Labor Relations in college, I probably have an unusual interest in how technology affects the world of work, so bear with me for a minute. Elance (and other sites like it) allows you to access a truly global market for labor nearly instantaneously. There’s no need to move capital investments to chase down free labor. This is truly revolutionary. Never has a market for labor operated so freely and efficiently. I can have someone half a world away complete a project for me while I sleep, and they can do it for a fantastic price. That in itself is amazing, but what’s even more impressive is that Elance has built a community where you can actually count on the quality and reliability of the freelancers that you hire. If you’re as amazed by this development as I am, then you will want to take a look at jobs at Elance (their jobs, not the jobs posted on their site). Right now they’re looking for an Account Representative to work with their customers and help them better use Elance. And if you don’t end up working for Elance, you can always use them to find some project or hourly work along the way.
