Integration Engineer

I am recently looking into software developer freelance works as a side-hustle since I got laid off from my 9-5 fulltime job. My plan is to take projects with flexible schedule and hopefully build the connection and continue to work on freelance projects in the future. I tried registering with Toptal but got waitlisted instantly after submitting the application. Any advice on what platform is good for getting freelance projects? Thanks in advance!

Company Updates

Traditional talent models are under serious pressure. They represent a now-antiquated philosophy for pursuing opportunity: hire a pool of qualified individuals to respond to the needs of the business. Hire more as the business grows. But “hire and retain” just isn’t working anymore, and the struggle is redefining how companies will drive objectives in the future. Complicating things further, many staffing firms have adopted a “throw spaghetti at the wall” approach, rather than providing the specific, high-quality talent companies demand.
