Elance-oDesk is a broker between freelance workers and businesses who need their skills. According to the company, there are some 2.7 million jobs being posted each year. The total income of all the freelancers looking for jobs in Elance-oDesk have grown by 50% every year for the last five years, according to the company’s data.

According to Rosati, businesses are looking for freelance workers because they need quality jobs done in just a short period of time. It is beneficial for businesses because they can just hire workers, as they need jobs done, while freelance workers also get jobs anytime they want with their flexible schedule and workplace.
