Where to find Job?
When people learned a lot of soft skills like Graphic designing, WordPress and many others like that after that they actually don’t know where to find these jobs. So, here we are discussing about some websites where you can get these jobs.
Fiverr is the one of the biggest freelance marketplace. The Fiverr work model is ; you post a gig on Fiverr and people come on your gig who need the service which you are providing and he gave you order. I prefer you to watch videos on Youtube that how Fiverr works there are tons of videos on youtube.
Guru is also the worldwide biggest freelance market place where you can find jobs. The way of working on Guru is different from Fiverr. On Guru the client posts the job on website and freelancers bids on that job and sends proposal. This is how Guru works.
Upwork is the best freelance marketplace. But for working on this site you should be master in your skills because the upwork have its standard. First of all it is difficult to approve the account on the upwork and after approving the second thing is to get the first order because there are many highly skilled and rated freelancers on upwork.com. But when you got your first job and you did it with good rating after that you can easily get more jobs.
This site is not to big like upwork and Fiverr but here you can get a lot of jobs. On this platform there is not too much competition as like upwork and Guru but the competition is increasing rapidly. I prefer you this site if you are a beginner.
Freelancer is an Australian freelance marketplace website, which allows potential employers to post jobs that freelancers can then bid to complete. This is also a very big freelance market place where you can find job according to your skills.
