Here are three of the top sites that will help you find the specialized skills you need for that one-off job or occasional task.
Upwork: If you were expecting to find Elance on this list, it has merged with Upwork. You’ll likely find your favorites have transitioned to Upwork from Elance. The site is easy to navigate, but you need to provide considerable information up front.
Guru.com: Guru is still one of the top sites to find technically skilled folks. Boasting 1.5 million members worldwide, Guru lets you take a look at profiles before you sign up. Upwork requires more extensive information.
Fiverr: Another service that has stood the test of time is Fiverr. The lingo is buyer and seller. You are either a buyer of services or a seller of services. Click on its FAQs for a straightforward explanation of how it all works.
