Freelancing/work-at-home is becoming one of the best job options in today’s society. Most of us are searching for new jobs for different reasons, jobs with higher salaries to cope with the cost of living which is rising up and up everyday, better environment or working hours to achieve the balance between job and social life so you can lead a better life, or any other reasons.

Freelancing marketplaces

There are lots of online or internet earning sources, among which I believe that freelancing or micro jobs are the best proven and straightforward ones. There are lots of freelancing companies out there, but here is a list of the most popular ones that have a huge user base and tons of projects in every imaginable domain.


Find freelancers and freelance jobs on Upwork - the world's largest online workplace where savvy businesses and professional freelancers go to work!


Guru is the oldest of the major freelancing sites, having been established in 1998. It claims to be the largest freelancing marketplace, yet in reality, the company leads more with respect to quality than quantity: it can make a strong argument to having the best projects, overall, of the big sites. It accomplishes this largely due to its fairly stringent new project posting policies, and even more important, a willingness to screen project submissions to avoid junk projects from even being posted.
