Sacramento, CA (PressExposure) August 22, 2009 -- The first paperback book about any freelance job site hit the market today via LuLu publishing. The book is set to be available through Amazon.com in within 6 - 8 weeks and it focuses on one of the largest freelance job sites on the Internet: RentACoder.com.
"It's a user guide for new buyers and it incorporates RentACoder's new technologies with time-tested outsourcing traditions," said Nicole Miller, author of "Outsourcing Through RentACoder." "We wrote the book not only to help improve the quality of working relationships coming through the site, but also to put RentACoder in the forefront of the freelance job site book war. That, and the fact that we're total fans of the site."
The 7.44" x 9.68" book is 418 pages, fully illustrated, and filled with online outsourcing know-how, checklists, worksheets, and more. It also introduces an outsourcing roadmap exclusive to the RentACoder website.
Asked why write a book about RentACoder, the author said, "There probably couldn't be a more appropriate time to disseminate the book's economic solutions. I mean, yeah, it's a book about outsourcing and it's a book about RentACoder. But it's also a book about saving the economy. RentACoder isn't just a freelance job site. It's a venue where American employers can hire out work right here in the US too. And we explained why employers need to do that and then we show them how right in the book."
Ian Ippolito, CEO of RentACoder.com calls the book, "required reading," and while Ian doesn't directly endorse the book, he describes the text as "a thorough and approachable way for newcomers to meet their objectives successfully, safely and efficiently." The book introduces the RentACoder company to new users and it also delivers several chapters explaining how to bring the website's contractors into the physical workplace.
"With so many people getting laid off or outright fired," Nicole continued, "we know from personal experience that secretaries and receptionists everywhere have to pick up the extra work left behind. These people need help and they need it in a way that management approves of. So we show them how to get that approval in the book as well."
Since outsourcing has always been a controversial subject in the American workforce, the author contends the book doesn't contribute to existing conflicts. "Actually the book additionally explains how companies can save IT jobs and keep workers employed. But it takes an alternative approach that requires some non-traditional solutions. And I really can't think of a better site to manage those solutions than RentACoder."
