Working with freelancers gives your business access to the talent it needs to help meet demand, scale up, and get your projects done fast and cost-effectively. Thanks to the new My Jobs dashboard, you and your coworkers can track project progress, collaborate more easily, and discover new project inspiration for a more effective way of working together.

  • Help screen and engage freelancers, and rehire trusted freelancers your coworkers have worked with in the past
  • Reuse coworkers’ job posts to post a similar job quickly
