First there was Jorbb.com – which we recently featured – and now Freelancezone.com.sg. It seems that casual job sites in Singapore are sprouting out of the ground like mushrooms after a downpour to challenge traditional print classifieds.
Launched in early July 2008, Freelancezone.com.sg is owned by e-commerce company Dovalize Pte Ltd and provides online tools for freelance service providers and potential employers to find one another. Freelancers can list their services on the site where service buyers can search and contact the service providers. Freelance service buyers can also post job ads and receive the application via job bids or direct contact from service providers.
According to Freelancezone.com.sg, the site has attracted more than a thousand freelancers from Singapore and Malaysia within the first three months of its launch, signing up under various industries such as account and finance, admin and human resource, information techology and web development and education and training.
It’s hard to identify Freelancezone.com.sg‘s unique selling point, but I guess another job site in Singapore won’t hurt considering the economic outlook.
