There is an article on Elance that says that SQL skills are currently the third, most in-demand skill on the Elance job network
Elance for those of you who’ve never heard of it, is one of the top job sites for freelancers or remote workers or offsite consultants
You may not have heard of Elance because you’ve always worked a full-time job and you don’t know much about the freelancing or moonlighting world or perhaps you have worked freelance jobs, but for some reason, have never heard of Elance.
Whatever your reason, I would like to introduce Elance to you as a job site worth checking out in the current recession.
Elance is a site you go to for freelance / remote / offsite work in web design, database development, web programming, technical writing, writing, business analysis and a whole suite of other professional careers.
Note that there are several types of database platforms available in the market including Oracle, SQL Server, Microsoft Access, MySQL. Also note that a relational database may be in-demand in one job site and not in the other.
For example, a relational database (rdbms) platform may be the hottest, in-demand database skill on Monster but not on Elance.
So, in this article on Elance, 1200 MySQL projects were posted in the last 30 days. Click here to read the rest of the article
