What is a freelancer?
- Freelancer is a human, that works remotely for a company; commonly via third-party as a platform for such jobs, and freelancers are supposed to move from one company to another - and that's the greatest advantage of being a FREELANCER.
- Nobody can tell you whether or not you should apply for some job. Just apply to those that you think you can make it work ! But first, clean up "behind you" as you are about to start writing a new page. The unemployment in USA will bring you to the land of many, many, many people ready to do work for 2$ per hour! Full time one. Consider that fact, unless you are a certified IT expert.
So, you cleaned your profile on Facebook®, Google+®, Twitter®, you cleaned or removed stupid/ public but meant for private/ videos from YouTube®... Edited LinkedIn profile, and updated it ? - Then you are ready to start!
You won't be in a "Wall Street", this is going to be your home... In small!

The Best Freelancing Platform?
oDesk the synonym for freelancers
So far, oDesk Corporation is a synonym for freelancing clients as well for freelancers.
The difference between clients and freelancers are following:
- Clients are companies or third-party's that are doing recruiting of freelancers, for their permanent, full-time, part-time, project-based jobs.
- Clients are rated by the freelancers feeling of working at environment such as ... Or working with Ms. or Mr. John Doe...
- Freelancers can open their own cloud-based company.
- Freelancers are people that are there to: bid, and bid - until they get the best job they want. Notice: start with 3$ max. if you don't have experience!
- Based on: responsiveness (still under beta version, testing), and feedback of clients toward (i.e) John Doe are your very crucial factors at employment and going... "UP"...
Freelancers can work from anywhere they want to
-Now more than ever, work is remoteable. So, now wherever you are, you can simply log in, apply for as many as work is there (for those who begin) and keep in mind: the rule number one: none of the freelancing platforms stated won't tolerate ANY violation of Terms of Service.
So keep your eyes well. Sometimes, it will be hard. Now, for instance, I don't have a job for a 2 months. But that's my fault because I've played with ToS of the oDesk. I've built five star feedback based on 16 reviews, and more than 3000 hours and some 3000 euros earned in 2 months.
From the cafe, hotel, beach...
Work has come to your holidays as well... Why would you earn some extra pocket money with your knowledge in WordPress(R), or in Web Design? Why wouldn't you buy a brand new laptop working from cafe, as Technical Support Rep ? There is no need to be physically present.
