LinkedIn Adds ProFinder for Freelancers

LinkedIn just expanded its pilot freelance service, ProFinder, to all of the United States.

ProFinder joins the freelance marketplace alongside marketplaces like Upwork, Freelancer, and Thumbtack.

With ProFinder, anyone can post a job and receive five bids from the freelancers using the service. Any professional can post their profile, and bid on 10 gigs for free – after that, a LinkedIn Premium Business Plus subscription is required.

LinkedIn has been running ProFinder since last year, and now opens it to the full US audience to capitalize on the larger-than-ever demand for freelance work.
