LinkedIn created application ProFinder to cater to those working in the gig economy. ProFinder asks employers to submit contract jobs in writing, design and the financial services industry and gives them five free quotes from LinkedIn users for each project. Currently, professionals are invited to submit up to 10 complimentary proposals. After the 10th proposal, companies will need to subscribe to LinkedIn’s Business Plus subscription which costs about $60 per month. According to LinkedIn, the number of freelancers using the site has increased by 50 percent in the past five years and 50,000 of them have been using ProFinder since the pilot program launched in October.
