This site has over 1.5 million clients all over the world making it the biggest freelance sites. Here, you can find both short and long-term projects to work on.

There are so many low paying jobs but with professional experience and a good profile, you will definitely attract high paying jobs.

2. Fiverr

This Freelance Job site is totally different from Up work so if you decide to maintain both accounts, you need to pay attention when signing up. Instead of having companies post their projects so freelancers can apply, the site has freelancers create ‘’gigs’’ based on what they can do best. This site is ideal if you are willing to offer small tasks that can be done quickly. These small tasks could be anything from blog comments, product description, reviews, transcription, article writing, logo design, and much more. Fiverr jobs used to be priced at $5, hence the name, but this is no longer the case.

If you’ve got a post graduate degree, you can go ahead and sign up and teach the subject you are qualified in. payments start at $20 per hour. You need to9 have a good computer and internet.

Rev offers transcribers, translators, and captioners, opportunities to practice their skills. Okay, I said practice.
