Freelancing Jobs in Other Fields

Of course, there are hundreds more categories of freelance jobs that you can search for on sites like Upwork or you can get really creative on sites like Fiverr where you can offer freelance services in just about any category you can think of.

Freelancing is changing how the global economy functions. It used to be that when a job needed to be accomplished, a company hired an employee or, every now and again, a temporary worker.

Today, companies are going online and posting freelance gigs to find fresh talent as an alternative to traditional workers.

So, even if there’s not a section of freelance jobs for you listed above, that absolutely does NOT mean there’s not room for you in the world of freelancing.

You just have to carve out your own niche. These articles will help you get started:

More places to find the best freelance jobs

If the resources listed above aren’t enough for you and you’re still on the hunt for fresh freelance jobs, then here are a few more places you may want to look:

Upwork

Upwork is probably the most well-known and highly used freelance job site on the internet. With over 60,000 new freelance jobs posted every week, you’re sure to find the right job for you.

SolidGigs

If you’re doing jobs on the side or you have a full plate as a freelancer, then SolidGigs is a great option for you. Their team hand-picks the best freelance jobs they can find according to specific criteria you send them.

FlexJobs Logo

FlexJobs

If flexibility is a critical element of your freelancing, then FlexJobs is a great option for you. Not only can you filter by the usual criteria (skills, hours, pay) but you can also indicate if you want to filter freelancing jobs by whether you can tele-commute or work 100% remotely.

linkedin logo

Linkedin Jobs

Why not try looking on the world’s largest professional social network to find your next gig? With nearly 70 million users, Linkedin isn’t just a great place to connect with coworkers and industry experts—it’s also a fantastic place to find new freelance jobs.

Fiverr

If you’re looking for a more creative approach to getting jobs as a freelancer, then Fiverr has the answer for you. Instead of browsing jobs companies have posted for freelancers, you create your own offering, add a price, and do your best to shine in the marketplace. On Fiverr, people literally get paid to do all sorts of random tasks.

If, after all that, you’re still struggling to find freelance jobs to build your career, I suggest you send your questions to our incredible freelancer mastermind where thousands of fellow freelancers are standing by (for free) to help you succeed.

Until then, good luck and keep up the hard work!
