ScriptLance Review

Continuing with our review of some known and lesser known job posting sites on the market, this time we are focusing on ScriptLance. Be sure to check out our Resume Boomer and CareerBuilder reviews as well.

Today’s review is of a not-so-well-known site for programmers and developers looking to do freelance work (either full time or off-hours from your day job).

Site Name:
Cost: Free Membership Signup and No Monthly Fees

How It Works: People post projects on ScriptLance that need programming or development work of all different types (SQL, C++, Perl, Visual Basic, Cold Fusion, .NET, HTML, XML, Joomla, JavaScript, Flash, WordPress, etc.). They describe what the requirements are and offer a budget range they are looking for. Members (programmers) then review available projects by searching on industry type, programming language, etc. to determine which projects they would like to bid on. They place their bid, competing against other members for the business.

Payment: When completed, the client pays you through ScriptLance, who takes a 5% cut of your bid price. You can withdrawal the funds from ScriptLance through Paypal, Moneybookers, bank wire, FedEx check, or have them send you a Mastercard debit card.

Assessment: Overall, this is a really great site. It provides a great avenue for those looking to earn some extra income or establish a base if you are looking to strike out on your own. It also can help those with less experience in certain technologies get the experience necessary so they can highlight it on their resume.

The Verdict: Two Thumbs Up!
