Instructions

  1. 1

    Register with freelance websites that offer computer programming projects. Websites like Rent-A-Coder.com, elance.com, Odesk.com and freelancer.com are some of the popular freelance websites that offer a lot of SAS projects.

  2. 2

    Create a strong profile. Every freelance website requires the user to create a profile. Try to get in as many details as you can about your SAS experience rather than just posting your resume. It is also important to emphasise how you handle projects and deadlines as freelancing revolves around deadlines and working independently with little supervision.

  3. 3

    Read the terms and conditions of the website before you start hunting for projects. Most of the websites charge a monthly fee for using their website, and charge a fee for every project you get paid for. You can also try out the websites for free for a limited time and with limited access to their project pool.

  4. 4

    Search for SAS-related projects on the freelance websites. SAS projects vary from simple projects like converting SAS datasets to .csv files, to complex projects like SAS-powered reporting.

  5. 5

    Go through the SAS projects and study the rates offered by the clients or other SAS programmers with the same skill set as yours. This will help you make a fair offer for each project. The SAS projects are usually divided into groups like SAS/base, SAS/macro, PROC/Report, SAS/SQL and SAS/Graph.

  6. 6

    Take the SAS project that you are confident about completing on time and provide high-quality work.

  7. 7

    Update your profile often to include the SAS projects you completed. This helps you move up as a successful SAS freelance programmer.
