I’m sure by now you have heard of websites that give you the opportunity to find an online job, freelance gig, or contract type work like elance.com or odesk.com. They’re great because you can pick and choose what job you want to do, and usually for how much you’re willing to do it for. The only problem is that you have to pay for the service, usually in the area of $49.99 monthly membership dues and 10% of the final project costs. These expenses can add up, especially for the poor student.
I found a website that is perfect for students. It’s called sologig.com. It’s full of freelance gigs, contract work, and online job opportunities. You can search for jobs locally or nationally, or just on a specific interest or expertise. The best part is that it’s FREE to join and FREE to get a gig! Sologig.com connects you directly to your prospective employer/project manager which completely cuts out the extra costs associated with other sites.
If you are a student that’s about to graduate, you can check out what longer term job/business opportunities are available.
Sologig.com is fully owned and operated by careerbuilder.com, a trusted job search site used by millions of job hunters around the world.
