    "I am a working mom (a single mom), and in looking for a job, I always make sure that I can work from home so I wouldn't need to leave my daughter with her nanny alone. Upwork works well for me. I am a paid marketing expert. I make $30 an hr and I think that's more than enough to support my only daughter. If you wanna work while studying, Upwork is also a great avenue for you to jump-start your career. They offer careers in the field of web development, designs, writing, marketing, and financial field. "

    "I am eyeing on JPMorgan ever since I graduated from college and Toptal has greatly helped me achieved my dream. The good thing about toptal is it has become a community where you can meet your colleagues or just people who share the same interest with you, and you will able to attend tech events. There will be a screening process before you get accepted to be a freelance writer so prepare yourself for some assessment."

    "Whoa, at first, I thought craigslist is some sort of eBay where you just buy and sell your stuff. To my surprise, I discovered that it is beyond a buy and sell website. It can also be a source of extra income for some. Job listings and other work-from-home jobs are listed in here. The thing is you get to meet a lot of people from your region because this site works per region so if you are in the Americas, there are also states you can choose from so you can build a network from there."

    "I get paid by every task that I accomplish. People would often settle for just one job but not in my case. I always make sure i have another source of income. This stands out amongst all because it offers easy communication between freelancers and the clients. Don't worry about the pay, you won't be fooled as SafePay feature is there to secure the pay even before the job is done. "

    "As an artist, I am always torn between pursuing my passion as a designer and having a regular and boring job at the office. One thing I like freelancing is that I get to choose what types of projects I would like to work on. I have met several clients through this site all of them asked me to design a logo for their start up business. I hope they liked my work:D"
