I just recently graduated and wish to remain living in the Milwaukee, WI area. Would anyone have any ideas of any freelance jobs within the area or websites other than coroflot and idsa that might have job postings?? All help is much appreciated.
i should probably explain that “in the area” means traveling as far as Chicago or Madison. (1 & 1/2 hour drive), or of course, any distance if the work is over the internet.

If you’re in Milwaukee, you may have to do some real foot work to convice a Chicago employer that you’re worth freelancing with from so far away-- a lot of firms like to use freelancers that can come in on the drop of a hat.
