Despite thousands of people losing their jobs these days at least one company is getting a lot of business.
Elance matches prospective employees with employers and has become one of the most popular networking sites online.
The company's C.E.O. said more than 200,000 jobs are waiting to be filled, but applicants need to be flexible because most of the job requests are from small businesses that are looking for contractors to do specific tasks.
Some of the jobs are technology-based and could allow job-seekers to work from home.
