Any person who takes up an assignment or a project on temporary basis is called a freelancer. It is estimated that more and more people will take up freelance jobs to maintain work life balance. Any person can do freelance for any skill. In USA, for the year 2015, 34% of the workforce were doing freelance which is expected to cross 50% in the next decade.
Some of the advantages of Freelancing are:
- Breaks the Monotony- You are free (in a limited way) to determine the working hours for yourself
- Set your own rules of Engagement- if you don’t like a particular company or the project, you can wish to discontinue after the completion. On the other hand, if the experience was good, you can continue for longer time.
Please check the credentials of any company / person before enrolling with them. User discretion is advised.
