I was looking at these sites awhile ago and I wondering what my friends on mylot have to say about these freelance sites? Have you ever used these sites? Have you made any money with these sites? How hard is it to get a job with these sites/

I have an account in getafreelancer and odesk but im not active with those sites. At first, i think the tasks are very easy and so as the money. But i realize it wasnt! The competition is very high. You are competing with professional people also. In order to establish yourself and gain credibility, you need to take a lot of tests and get high scores as well as credits to your real life job. As for student like me, its very hard to compete with them. But the real online work and money is with those freelancer sites. The only difference with it in the real work is that it is online.

No I've never even heard of them sites. But I'm sure a job could be possible if you're good enough.

hello there, i have been into such freelancing sites for a long time now, and i like it.......in fact, i think that the best way for me...i get to choose what to do ...and get paid well for that. i have been a member of many sites like GAF, guru, scriptlance, etc......but, personally i like scriptlance....i am quite active there, and have done a few project....and earned good money form them. that's where most of my online earnings came from...... have a nice day.
