The Freelance Marketplace; a solution to youth unemployment?

To all of those without meaningful employment, the job market can bring up instant anxiety. It is difficult to make sense of the unpredictable ways of HR, not knowing if you have enough education, skills, experience. For many the job hunt is a grind, where only a few get lucky, and rest are left scratching their heads figuring out what went wrong.

There is another way.

E-Freelancing is all about taking the middleman out of the job market, it connects employers and job hunters irregardless of distance. All that stands in-between you and a paycheck is the way you present yourself and the skills you possess. E-Freelancing sites such as E-Lance, oDesk, and Guru provide the opportunity for young people to find an endless amount of jobs in their area of expertise. Whether it be writing, graphic design, photoshop or even WordPress 🙂 Once you have a job in mind, it is up to you to make a competitive bid, and the employer picks their favourite contractor.

E-Freelancing is a way for young people to get the experience they desperately seek, while getting some money in the bank. In my opinion, e-Freelancing is changing many people’s prospects for finding employment for the better.  I implore my fellow job seekers to check one of these websites out, make an account, take a couple of tests and take e-Freelancing  a shot!

  1. Great post idea. Might just check out those sites myself, as a “young-ish” person seeking new job experiences. 😉

    I agree with sugarcoatedmeds… the internet provides so much opportunity, and can do so for employment too.
