Where can I apply for freelance writing jobs?
If anyone can recommend a place which is scam free and I can join from the UK I would really appreciate that. I have come across a couple of places who require someone with a degree - I have qualifications but all below degree level. I can put together a portfolio to show my work. Thanks.
There are several sites that have work for freelancers and your degree isn't important. Your ability is the only criteria people we care about.
These are all bid sites so folks post jobs, and you post a bid for the work. I have hired several freelancers for my sites this way.
You can also advertise on Craigslist offering your service to web publishers, small businesses, etc. Finally, set up you own blog, then offer to guest post on other blogs. When you guest post, you can send folks to your site where they will find you work as well as an offer to work as a freelancer.
These should get you started and best of luck.
Purchase a book called "The Writer's Market" It is well worth the money as a resource. http://www.writersmarket.com/index_ns.asp
There are also a few writing jobs on Mechanical Turk. They're usually few and far between, don't pay much, but still, it's something for your C.V )
You can go to elance.com and freelancer.com for writing jobs. Also, you are welcome to sign up for free at writeonlinearticle.com and earn with Google Adsense.
You could try http://www.blogcommentcommunity.com/apps/projectboard/
They have a projects board that searches for online job postings. All you have to do is type in what kind of job you are looking for and it gives you choices. Most of them are good paying jobs from sites like Freelancer and Elance. You will not find any low paying jobs from sites like fiverr though.

I´ve spend some time here at hubpages reading about writing jobs, and many of them talk about getafreelancer, as a good site, but i´m not sure how it works, do you have to be a genius writer to make some money there or can it be done by someone like me, I know that getting to the level of...

Specifically, has anyone submitted their best hub articles as writing samples to help get a job? I'm not talking about re-using hubs to publish somewhere else - I just mean using them as part of a resume, as an example of past written work. Thanks!
