Freelancer is one of the best freelance communities out there, whether you’re looking for work or hiring freelancers. Freelancers can browse any available jobs and bid based on how much money they would like to earn per project or per hour. Money is deposited into Escrow for payment protection and then released once the agreed upon work is completed. Employers can post local jobs and hold contests while freelancers can take skill tests to build their credibility on the website. A review system for employers and freelancers makes sure that proper feedback is given once a job has reached its conclusion.
