Freelancer Site Follow Up

Just a quick follow up on Thursdays post. I mentioned that I am trying out Lime Exchange. It is a conduit for people seeking IT like services and those that provide them. I didn’t really know what to expect about how many bids I would get on my project, or from where, or the talent the bids would come with. Well so far I have 9 bids in three days. I guessed that several would come from India and that is somewhat correct. Here is the list of cities posting a bid:

  • Karanchi, Pakistan
  • Gomel, Belarus
  • Hyderabad, Pakistan
  • Chennai, India
  • Bangalore, Hyderabad, Pune, India
  • Hyderabad, India
  • Kyev, Ukraine
  • Islamabad, Pakistan
  • Faridabad, India

The expertise ranged from 2 years to 8 years and the varied skill sets is pretty impressive, although about 3 didn’t offer any skill details. There are a few one man shops but a few more organized as well (2 plus workers). So far none of the bids has come in under my offer but all of them as pretty reasonable. Since I didn’t know what to expect I put the bid period to be three weeks, but that is probably too much time. I could end the bid early and get started but I’ll play that by ear.

About benleeson
My name is Ben Leeson. I currently work for a large financial company in IT. I went to school at Marist College in Poughkeepsie, NY. I graduated with a B.S. in Business Administration concentrating in HR. Professor William Brown taught me and I enjoyed his classes; even acquiring an appreciation for just about all things HR. I didn’t pursue a job in that field after college but I’ve kept up with it. This blog will further my fascination with all things HR. I hope to grow my knowledge of the area through thoughtful writings and spirited feedback. I will attempt to have a fairly routine style so anyone reading can come to expect certain segments. Please excuse my incorrect grammar and occasional misspelling.
