In­stead of pay­ing a lu­di­crous amount in monthly salary, you can hire an ex­pert on an hourly ba­sis to get the work done. Use Up­work for sourc­ing spe­cial­ist skills from free­lancers from around the globe. Pro­fes­sion­als who of­fer their ser­vices on this por­tal of­ten telecom­mute.

The main ad­van­tage of us­ing Up­work is that you don’t even need to ar­range an ex­tra of­fice space or of­fice equip­ment for the short-term work. In ad­di­tion, you can for­get about mulling over any over­head cost of hir­ing and

train­ing the pro­fes­sional. While this tool is quite dif­fer­ent from a job board, it al­lows you to track work hours as well as goals and make pay­ments ac­cord­ingly.

Up­work charges 10% of fees to the free­lancers; em­ploy­ers are not re­quired to pay any­thing for us­ing Up­work.
