Fieldnation.com, founded in 2008, isn't your typical freelancing site. While it does have the capability of creating a standard user profile, searching and applying for jobs, and receiving payment, it has other features that set it apart.
For example, companies can design and complete entire projects through Field Nation. Here's how it works. A company will come to Field Nation with a project that they would like to outsource to freelancers. They give a thorough description of the objectives of the project, describe how they would like it be done, provide a deadline, and allocate a budget. Fieldstone helps find freelancers from their pool of users, collaborates plans to ensure efficient completion of the project, and ensures that they don't go over the budget. Freelancers are encouraged to give real time updates on their task lists. There's even a mobile site they can pull up on their cell phones where they can check off individual tasks they've completed in real time. Freelancers have an incentive to be great because they can receive better ratings fromField Nation which will lead to more opportunities in the future. Once the project is completed,Field Nation reports back to the company and returns any unused budget money back to them-and if their advertisements are accurate, they often go under budget. In exchange for this service,Field Nation receives 10% of the money dedicated toward the project.
This service is free for freelancers. Joining is simple, and like many other freelancing sites, new users can create a profile highlighting their skills. They can apply for jobs and also be sought out for employment opportunities.
