Elance is a really awesome website. You can set up a profile and look for "freelance" jobs in these areas:
- Administration & Support
- Web & Programming
- Design & Multimedia
- Writing & Translation
- Sales & Marketing
- Finance & Mgt
- Engineering & Mfg.
There are literally hundreds and hundreds of jobs posted and you have to bid on the ones you are interested in working on. I bid on 7 jobs within the first week.
I got hired! It's a job as a Virtual Assistant until March and it's enough money per month to pay all our household utilities/groceries! It's only 10/hrs week too so I could easily pick up another job on there as well.
So if you are looking to pick up some extra cash and you have some extra time to work from home, check out Elance. (I dont' get any kind of credit for this or anything - I am just happy at how quick I picked up a job.)
