Bidding For Business - Facilitates the Future

Atlanta,Bidding For Business - Facilitates the Future Articles November 25, 2003 – As the world plugs in, there’s no doubt that the business world is fast becoming an international arena. While day-to-day business continues, everything from research to marketing needs have taken on new meanings – and have created the drive to find by-the-project professionals to fill those needs.

Jon Davis, a recruitment executive for Matrix Resources, an Atlanta-based technology placement firm, has noticed some stability returning to the workforce – but is quick to note that most employers aren’t looking for full-time employees. Business today needs contractors – individuals who are paid by the project.
''I would say there are more employers today than there were in the past that like the flexibility of a contingent workforce,'' said Davis, attributing this shift to the rising costs of supporting a full-time workforce, diminishing worker-employer loyalty, and the proliferation of technology. The need, then, is for freelance professionals who excel in specific commercial aspects of business – individuals ready to fulfill a company’s outsourcing needs.

Covering all commercial categories, and its growing community of international resident professionals are revolutionizing the concept of outsourcing, giving project managers the chance to analyze the commercial field and hand-pick their candidate from a pool of bids.
The services that these freelance experts offer range from software development, graphic and web design to genealogical and technical research.
Harried writers have already found an inexpensive solution to their ghost writing, screenplay creation, and technical script writing needs - in short, has taken the guesswork and risk out of utilizing contract talent.

The self-employed and contract individuals historically make up 7% of the U.S. labor force, but according to Ed Potter, president of the Employment Policy Foundation, that number could grow to 10% over the next several years. These may seem small percentages, but an increase to 10 percent equates to millions of workers in a labor force of 146 million, Potter pointed out.
In this burgeoning market, it’s difficult to find the most qualified individual- someone whose technical skills overpower those of the others. has also addressed this issue, with their bidding format assuring the lowest costs, and a growing pool of experts whose profile, resume, and portfolios can be examined before one step is ever taken, has the traffic to this site booming.
Technology has advanced to the point that most workers have full home offices. “Like so many things in life, work is becoming much more idiosyncratic, customized and personalized,” says author Dan Pink, who published “Free Agent Nation” in 2001.
So, here goes the new wave of this century, and the smartest way of performing business.
