Where to Find Freelance Workforce Projections show that by 2020, the number of Americans who are freelancers will have doubled. Already, there are over 55 million freelance workers. Which spells good news for employers: More candidates to choose from means that telecom employers can afford to be choosier when filling contract positions.
The first step, of course, is finding candidates to choose from—something online platforms make easy. There are many freelance marketplaces where workers and employers can see one another. Generic Services Marketplaces (such as upwork and freelancer) allow freelancers to create profiles that showcase their skills and work experience.
General marketplaces allow employers to search for freelancers by keyword (such as telecom field engineer). To find the right fit, employers can filter their search results by hourly wage, skills, or feedback from past employers. Employers have the option to contact a skilled Freelance worker directly or create gigs and invite qualified candidates to apply for their freelance work.
