TheFreelanceNation.com is a network of “119 city-specific freelance job boards designed to enhance the interaction between companies looking for contract services and those Independent Professionals who provide it.”
The site offers blind bidding, which it says encourages fair pricing, sets realistic expectations for projects, and results in better qualified talent for employers.
Along with project and job postings, the site also allows vendors who sell to self-employed freelancers to post a profile of their offerings.
The number of single-person businesses in the U.S. has grown substantially, to over 20 million according to the latest U.S. Census figures. Many consider themselves freelancers.
The site was founded by Jay Lohmann and Will Morgan. It just launched, so it still needs to be populated by more postings. Check out TheFreelanceNation.com.
