How To Get Jobs On PeoplePerHour

There are two ways of getting jobs on PeoplePerHour:
- Posting hourlies: This is similar to posting a gig on Fiverr but the only difference is that the team will approve it before it goes live. You need to create an image 
- Bidding for jobs: This is the second way of landing clients on PeoplePerHour and it works very well. All you need is to visit the 'Browse Jobs Section' on the top right of your account. This is what a typical job-page looks like.
