How to start freelance work without previous experiences?

December 8, 2006 8:28am CST
I have found from different sources a number of freelance job offering sites . Two reliable ones are freelanceworkexchange and . the former is fee based registration site and the other perhaps does not require fee . But my problem is that I don't have previous (documented or certified) experience that would help me get the jobs . I think there are others with the same hindrance . How then shall we succeed in getting freelance jobs . I am ready to start with as simple and low paying job as typing and proofreading job . Can anybody here advice me specifically how to get the first few jobs which will impart me some credentials in the freelance job market?It may be other than typing or proofreading.
