The Monster List of Freelance Job Sites 2009 Update



Every freelancer needs clients. We rely on them, nurture our relationships with them, and provide a quality of service that keeps then coming back. And we can never have enough of them! The Monster List of Freelance Job Sites has one purpose: to massively increase your source of potential clients and potential jobs.

This list, like Isaac Newton, stands on the shoulders of giants. The original Monster List of Freelance Job Sites has been valuable and much visited since April 2007. Your hundreds of comments have greatly added to its value. This list is a thorough update, removing dead links, adding new sites, and taking on board many of the suggestions from your comments.

We start the list with FreelanceSwitchs own Job Board, which has categories for design, development, writing, illustration, Flash, and miscellaneous jobs, and at the time of writing contains a huge 200 jobs. You can see the available jobs with no strings attached, but to apply for jobs, you need to sign up, which costs just $7 a month. And you can advertise jobs at absolutely no cost.

Is this list now finished? I doubt it ever will be. Like the last list, it will become more valuable as you comment on which sites you found most helpful, inform us of sites that have been missed, and warn us when links stop working. And, best of all, get those jobs!

    Great list overall though.

    1. PG Work N Hire

      Yes, the list is excellent. But for people residing in India, there is a new freelancing portal http://www.worknhire.com . I think it should be added to the list as well.

  2. PG Matt Hanson

    Good writing. Keep up the good work. I just added your RSS feed my Google News Reader..

    Matt Hanson

  5. PG Will

    Lovely, thanks for this!

  6. PG Japh

    Great list, thanks!

    @Clemente aka kreativeKING: either the articles been update since your comment, or your attention to detail needs some work ;) Both of those sites are included in the list right near the top too!

  7. PG Audee Velasco

    Hello, Newbie freelancer here!

    I will probably try other sites. Right now Im in using Odesk.com.

    Thanks for the list. More power!

  8. PG Luke

  12. PG Adam

    Wow, very impressive and lengthy list, thanks alot!

  13. PG Tony Chester

    How in the heck was YouWebJob.com left off this list? I guess more promotion is needed. Maybe next year.

  14. PG Tony Chester

    Holy Crap! Just what I was looking for! Thanks.

  33. PG Jason Udget

  34. PG Rob Daniel

  42. PG James
  43. PG teuingsaha

  44. PG Chris Wallace

    Thanks for adding AllDevJobs.com to the list. We also run MashedJobs.com, a design/development job aggregator as well.

  45. PG Luca

    Hello, the website is not circa lavoro.it but cercalavoro.it

  46. PG John

    Thanks for the good work.
    The only question is: how many of the resources listed are just startups with hardly any content?
    The ideal list would give a rating or something to indicate their value for a freelancer.

  47. PG Binny V A

    Thanks for the list the only problem now is Im too lazy to make on more work.

  48. PG Michael Savage

    I vote you add http://www.yourwebjob.com! Its the best looking with the best pricing!

  49. PG FreelanceMan

    If youre more interested in building your business by having local clients find you, consider a freelancer directory like http://www.FreelanceLocalTech.com, which provides free listings for freelancers in over 30 countries.

  50. PG Anthony James Bruno

    Wow so much link spam in here its unreal. Looks like the word is out on Google Alerts.

    Thanks for the roundup!

  51. This is a great list of resources. I would like to give the heads-up on Sologig I signed up with them over a year ago, and wish I hadnt. All the postings they send to me are home business (MLM) pitches, not real jobs. I was very specific about the types of work I am looking for too. I look forward to looking at the rest of these links.

  52. This many different sites on freelancing jobs tells me one very important thing: Freelancing is here to stay, so I might as well get involved.

    Thanks!

  53. PG SteHan

    Thanks a mil, Adrian for the post. Clearly alot of work went into it. One of the most promising ones to me as a South African, seemed to be sologig.com However upon application I realized that they only cater for freelancers within the US despite the post suggesting otherwise ["Anywhere"]. That is, anywhere in the U.S. Just a heads up for those outside of the U.S. considering Sologig luckily there are many more, but really I liked Sologigs non-bidding approach.

  54. PG Renee

    Dont forget LinkedIn (http://www.linkedin.com/). :)

  55. PG The YPI

    Thanks thats a great list.

  56. PG Karen

    Thanks for the list!

    Marie Cox over at Artypapers does a great job aggregating several of these sites
    http://artypapers.com/jobpile/

  57. PG Pitt

    I am a freelance translator. Im working for a few weeks not with http://www.tomedes.com . They are very honest and have big clients.

  58. Great Resource still checking many of these out. Will be linking to this!

  59. PG Collette Schultz

    Once again awesome list. I would love to know your trick to getting so many comments. Please share:)

  60. PG Chris Merritt-Lish

    Adrian Thanks so much for taking the time to put together this list. With new job boards popping up left and right, TheCanned.com, a website to help the unemployed, has redesigned their Job Board Directory (JBD). Hopefully, our New/Improved Job Board Directory can be of assistance to you, and your readers.

    With our new directory, you can rate job boards, read user comments, and find the job board best tailored to your needs.

  61. PG Kim

    Fabulous post, finally got around to scouring through them all is it just me, though, or is it rare to find anybody offering fair rates for freelance work? Maybe its just illustration thats intensely undervalued, but I went through most of these and could hardly find a single posting offering anything close to fair.

  62. PG Glenn Addicott

    Wow thanks for this list its huge.

  63. PG Stacey

    Wow this is an incredible list. Do you mind if I share with my readers?

    Stacey

  64. PG Marko Randjelovic

    Thank you! :)

  65. PG Faryal Humayun

    That covers just about every one of them. Please add the two famous job directories:
    http://gulfjobsites.com/
    http://www.worldjobsites.org/

  66. PG Matt

    Hi,

    Im trying to get this service started in the UK for freelance programmers and designers. Its designed so employers can seek out freelancers who have registered, and each freelancer will have an seo friendly profile page that will eventually be spidered by search engines and they can be found that way too.

    The site is at http://www.find-professionals.co.uk, and the freelancers will appear on each of the Find Professionals sister sites.

    Thank you for reading, I hope this may be of help, and I think with some promotion the site could prove quite popular.

    Thanks again great list by the way!

    Matt

  67. PG Andrea

    I cant beleive FreelancePulse.com isnt on the list. They are way better than anyone else listed here when it comes to finding telecommuting jobs.

  68. PG Anstar

    Nice list! I recommend to add to Job Aggregators http://hotfreelancejobs.com this site collects only open (hot) freelance jobs from many freelance job sites

  69. PG Alisa Rogers

    Great!
    I was always searching for a great blog like this so that i can get some help to search freelancers. The above information given by you is very impressive and helpful.
    Thanks

  70. PG Peter

    Looking for Illustrations, exploded views, cutaways, cartoons for magazines, books and web games?

    As a freelance illustrator I create artwork for books, board games, magazines and web games. My style is very suitable for a young audience, however the content of my illustrations covers a broad range of subjects, from (political) satire to cutaways showing the technology of various machines. Illustrating by hand is my favorite technique, although I always apply colors, tweak and deliver digitally. My turnaround is fast and my price negotiable, please visit this site to check if I can contribute to your projects.

  71. PG Kendall

  110. PG sunil

    Right now i am working through odesk. I have done more than 40 WordPress assignments there on a single profile but right now there are a lot of new providers (bidders) so some time the employer may not see my profile before he go through my profile (although my profile is very strong as all the 42 jobs are done using WordPress) but I am not getting value of my skills in odesk so I want to switch to another freelance site. I want to switch to something that is paid so that new providers (bidders) can not apply to jobs and I can get best for my skills. I came to know about elance, guru and freelancer.com which is best one for me? I am willing to pay some money for bidding. But I need a lot of work as I need work for a team of four members.

  111. PG Dann Triplet

    Been looking at doing some SEO and bettering the web design on my website for a long time, so this post has been really useful. Easy read as well, so thank you!

  115. PG jason

    this is a good list of sites. but it is frustrating when you check them out and theyre based on bidding and competing with other applicants! if only more sites were like http://www.push1.com/freelance allowing you to apply for a freelance roles directly to the employer and not having to bid we need more sites like this

  116. PG ben
  117. PG David Anderson

    This probably the best aggregation site in Australia with around 17,000 jobs for the state of Western Australia alone. They have plans to replicate the site in all other Australian states in 2011. Should be a winner.

  118. PG David Anderson

    Site is WestJobs.com.au/

  119. PG Alicia Young

    I find it useful somehow yeah theres a lot of them.. but heres where I get more money with, https://www.referralkey.com/, thought you might be interested with..

  120. PG internet marketing

    great resource for freelancers.

  121. PG Konrad

    Is there a newer version of top freelancers for 2011

  122. PG Sadhana

    I wonder how could you collect this monster list of freelancing resources. I am not aware of many of the sites. Thanks a lot for widening my opportunities in freelancing sites. I have used few sites like greatlance, 3to30.com, freelancer for earning money. These sites works well for me. Let me try more.

  123. PG Chapman

    This is a interesting and nice learn. The blog is published such that it is so easily readable and understand. Im a lover of your website. Many thanks for sharing this information.

  124. PG sherry

    I would love a list rating them if even by users :) that being said I have to say elance is time consuming and not for someone who needs quick work. It takes time to establish yourself even if you are a seasoned professional. Unless its something like a scripwriter where people will want you because you wrote the last #1 film but then youd not be looking for work on elance

    Regardless Id love a rating! Id give elance a 4 out of 10 losing 6 stars for difficulty to get business too much competition

  125. PG Website Designers

    I am so surprised for having such a great list.

  126. PG read more

    Great post. I used to be checking continuously this blog and Im inspired! Very helpful info specially the last section :) I take care of such info much. I was seeking this certain information for a very long time. Thanks and good luck.

  127. PG Nandita

  128. PG Katja

    Hey there,

    a great list, thank you! You might also be interested in an international platform Freelance-Market,

  129. PG Mauricio

    Does anybody know of a freelance site where registration and bidding on projects (assignments) is free. I am new to freelancing and not entirely sure where to begin.

    If such a site does not exist, what sites are recommended that I check out that provide all kinds of projects for freelancers anywhere in the globe?

    I am a Canadian business professional primarily focusing my skills in the field of business process management which includes business analysis.

    Thank you.

    Kind Regards,

    Mauricio

  130. PG Richard

    Please add us to the list http://www.freelancepeople.co.uk.

  131. PG Blue Bigfoot Media

    Very thorough list, thank you for this.

  132. PG sandeep

    Zumzzy Its a business directory of freelancers. Its different from other freelancing sites. There is no project posting and bidding kinda things there. The freelancers can make their profile, list their services, portfolio, price package, contact details etc. And the client just have to search the skill they are looking for and they will get the list of freelancers with that specific skills. They can contact the freelancers directly using the contact details mentioned in the Contact info page of the freelancers profile. And the best part is its free for both freelancers and clients.
