Yesterday I made some suggestions about how people not in the United States might be able to make use of the job postings here. The problem, of course, is most of the jobs are US based and most US employers haven’t a clue how to hire someone who lives in another country. (We Americans do tend to be pretty provincial.)
Spike Wyatt who lives in the UK and has lived in Paris and, I suspect, done a whole lot more traveling than I have (but has he sailed in the South Pacific?) suggested in a comment that the bidding sites might be perfect for folks from countries with lower cost of living than in the so-called western countries.
I’ve always tended to discourage writers from bidding sites, but Spike is right. They really can make sense when you think world around. He’s put together a thoughtful review of four sites.
Spike blogs at ScrawlBug which is a blog I’ve started to follow pretty closely. You might want to too.
