Online employment platform: Find freelancers, project-based work, and job offers online

Those searching for job vacancies or new employees increasingly utilize an online jobboard to publish available projects and job offers. A job board supports companies and freelance professionals to find expert teams and staff upcoming projects or contract jobs – on a temporary or permanent employment basis. Companies publish their vacancies and job offers on a jobboard or online employment platform to connect with suitable freelancers. Ideally the skills and expertise offered by the freelancer exactly meets the requirements of the project or job offer. In the wake of increasingly flexible and collaborative work environments, project-based work and contract jobs are becoming more and more commonplace. Today, the traditional boundaries between freelancers and permanent employees are blurred; so that not only permanent employees are assigned to realize project-based work and contract jobs but increasingly also freelance professionals are hired to fill job vacancies. Often, however, many independent professionals are not aware of these lucrative job offers provided by small and medium sized businesses. To increase general awareness about such employment possibilities and job offers these companies would do well to utilize a job board and / or online employment platform to advertise their job offers and project openings. Maintaining an additional presence on a jobboard or online employment platform in form of a company profile greatly strengthens employer branding and adds to the advantage of staffing up and down on demand. How the contact between job or project provider and service provider is established, ultimately depends on the business model and differs between a given job board and online employment platform. While companies using a jobboard usually pay for the publishing of a specific job offer or project opening and those interested can directly apply, with an online employment platform the contact possibilities vary widely – from direct application to mediation by the agency - and should be carefully considered beforehand.
