Solvate, a freelance website similar to Elance and Freelance is shutting down. In the past couple of years when unemployment was hovering around the 10% mark, sites like Solvate provided job seekers and freelancers the opportunity to find work on a contract basis. Many individuals have been able to sustain themselves by picking up contract work during these difficult times.
These freelance sites connect businesses with remote assistants to do anything from light administrative duties to putting power point presentations together. Solvate, hasn’t said what their next move is going to be, but for those interested in freelance opportunities, Elance and Freelance are going to be your best options. [Source: TechCrunch]
