Here in this blog, I have been sharing all sorts of information related to Software Testing and blogging. Recently I have been sharing about job openings from people I have contact with especially from the United Kingdom. I know that there are a few people who doesn’t live in the UK and are also looking more for a freelance type of work.
There are a few places online where you can have your profile registered and you can bid for jobs and get jobs offered based on your experience and competencies.
Is a list in which I’m hoping to add more places so you can take a look and go ahead and register so you can get jobs from anywhere in the world.
My suggestion is to go and read about them individually, assess which one you think is best to work with and concentrate in one place until you get a few jobs and start to build a history on it, then start to look to other places, otherwise, you will be spreading yourself between too many places and may won’t be able to give full attention to your clients.
Don’t just take my word for it. Visit the page, register and try it out. If you know any other website that offers a similar type of work that I have not mentioned here, please let me know so I can add in here.
Here it is:
#1 Find a Freelance Job – Freelancer
You can sign up for free, there’s a paid version too where you can get more jobs, but to start off with the free version is ok so you can have your profile built up and start to get a reputation.
You can search for projects based on your skills, browse for projects manually and via specific categories.
Take the exam so it validates your knowledge and help on your profile when you bid for a job it helps on employers decision between you and others.
#2 Jobs for a Fiver – Fivver
Fivver is a simple yet a powerful way to do some freelance work as well as get a simple job done to help you promote your career, website or business. I love the simplicity and I have been consuming it for a while. If you are looking to get the first step on the freelance ladder or you are already a freelancer and you are looking to diversify your channel and capture more clients, this is one of the best. You can start offering small jobs for $5, but you can combine more jobs with extra charges and also offer speed services for a premium fee. Fivver takes a small percentage of what you charge and you can use PayPal to receive the funds. You can’t get any simpler than that.
# 3 Test Websites, Software, Mobile Applications and Video Games – Crowdsourced Testing
This freelancer website application offers jobs specific for software testers who want to get a freelance job, claimed to, anywhere in the world. I like how is easy and intuitive to navigate in the website, they offer a nice and easy bug tracking tool called lean testing, but you have to be quick to get a job signed up as soon as you see the email notification make sure to log in and sign up for the job, if you leave for too long you may miss a job task with them. The first one is for free so they can assess you, but then you start to get paid jobs.
#4 Remote or Present Freelance Work – People Per Hour
A good place to register to get a freelance job as well. Simple to navigate and easy to follow and search for job posts you can bid straight away and get hired. It does charge a fee, but still reasonable. Register and take it for a spin.
#5 Market Place For Freelancers – UpWork
A marketplace with plenty of Software Testing jobs you can’t just miss out. Give it a go. Elance and oDesk have joined up and rebranded to UpWork, is one of the fastest growing freelance company in the world.
