This is so scary.. I am a woman and unemployed.. was laid off my full time job and now have been trying to freelance and do part time gigs to make money..

I actually found www.yaaze.com to be super useful for finding short term work and connecting with employers on projects. It has been great for me for bartending at night and finding event gigs in the daytime doing makeup/hair
