We love making a difference.
"I get jobs that specifically fit my skills, and I interact with really, really talented people around the world."
Happiness. Now in video.
Daniel B, Video/Animator
Fresh from his high school graduation in North Carolina, Daniel Borba faced a startling reality: Finding that first professional video job straight out of school is a difficult task – a challenge further compounded by Greensboro’s alarming 11% unemployment rate. However, following several unfulfilled months working part-time restaurant work, Daniel discovered Elance and traded in the apron for a keyboard and his “dream job” of freelancing.
Daniel was quickly able to apply his skills in video production and animation, landing jobs on Elance across the globe. Plus he was able to continue adding to his skillset and experience without the delay and economic hardship of an internship. Without costly advertising or marketing he grew his business swiftly, building a solid base of regular clients. Now he has plenty of work and even hires other Elancers when the demand is high or he needs specific expertise. It’s truly a video story with a happy ending.
