Among this segment of the workforce are those who obtain freelance work online, which can be a great way to earn money on the side, perhaps get a foot in the door in the tech industry, or maybe build up a portfolio of work with the hope of securing a permanent position elsewhere.
Many of these platforms will not offer opportunities for big money, but that can come later on when you’ve established yourself in the industry.

Work efficiently, effectively.
When it comes to working, you can work to get by, or you can work to make a difference, to be an asset and to make yourself as valuable as possible. By utilizing the three “effs” of being the star pupil, you’ll not only be the best at what you do, but you’ll also be able to do it without overextending yourself into the realm of insanity. If you’re going to put the effort into working, make it effective. Make it efficient. Make it effing Amazing.
Sure, you may be working a job and getting a paycheck, but that by no stretch of the word means you’re doing it fully effectively, efficiently, or effing amazingly. In fact, many people work just enough to get by, and intentionally choose not to be efficient, whether because they want to look busy, or are being paid for the time spent working on a job. This is no way to work. If you are going to spend such a large portion of your life to working, which you’ll likely have to unless you are one of the lucky few, then make it worthwhile. Make it effective, efficient, and effing amazing.
Once you finish performing your services and remain unpaid, your leverage for getting paid drops. You'll want to follow up with the business (in writing) at various intervals. For example, sending your invoice immediately, now that the work is done; sending a followup letter or e-mail seven to 14 days later (if the invoice is still unpaid); yet another followup another sever to 14 days later.
Depending on how much is at stake, you may want to consider bringing the matter to small claims court, but that's a last resort and not something you want to threaten in the first missive to the company.
Post a Job
An employment website is a website that deals specifically with employment or careers. Many employment websites are designed to allow employers to post job requirements for a position to be filled and are commonly known as job boards. Other employment sites offer employer reviews, career and job-search advice, and describe different job descriptions or employers. Through a job website a prospective employee can locate and fill out a job application or submit resumes over the Internet for the advertised position.
Hire a best freelancer
From the freelancer’s perspective, knowing the project and skills required up front helps them to determine if they’re a good fit. A job post lacking the right information is often the first thing to turn a high-quality freelancer away.
On the client’s end, you should be able to describe your goals in detail to help ensure the deliverables meet your needs. Have the logistics of how the freelancer will collaborate with your company ironed out so you can get started without wasting each other’s time after the contract is signed.

To prevent slow payments, make it as simple as possible for clients to pay you. Provide multiple options so that they can use the one they’re most comfortable with. For example, on invoices, include a “Pay Now” button, offer credit card payments...
- PayPal. PayPal is the most common form of payment freelancers receive. It’s free to set up an account, and clients can pay you electronically as soon as you complete your work. The money appears instantly in your PayPal account and you can then easily transfer funds to your checking or savings account.
- Credit cards. Freelancers can accept credit cards as a form of payment, and customers may prefer paying with plastic. These payments are typically processed through PayPal or another online payment system.
