This does not belong in Jobs Wanted, this belongs in Job Discussion.

{Note for readers, Mark's directions are for me... }

I have been googling for about twenty minutes. I thought I would work your idea to see what comes of it. The first one I have found that I am going to spend the time to look at is: http://www.gofreelance.com/programming/java-programmer.html

The basis of this decision is the way their site runs. The others are too crappy.

I worked independently for several years. I'm in the US, I don't know if the situation is the same abroad, but I did not have any success with "freelancing" websites. Half of my work came from local headhunters and half came from contacts I had (friend of a friend knew someone who's company needed a resource).

You are right. It is not easy.

I was going to say that. People do not want to hear that. The are much greater in numbers than we would think.
