PinoyLancer, like Elance or iFreelance, offers freelancers a place to go to find their next gig. So whether you’re a photographer, programmer, developer, or writer, you can search PinoyLancer’s listings to find something that suits your skills. It’s free to join as well as post a listing. Joining lets you message prospective employers/employees. The listings so far, aren’t something to write home about, but then again, it’s in beta. In Their Own Words
