What Is Freelancing?
Freelancing is a contract-based profession where instead of being recruited in an organisation, a person uses his skills, education and experience to provide services to a number of clients.
The rise of freelancers has resulted in the development of a new concept – the Gig Economy. In the gig economy, a person, instead of working for a single employer full-time and getting a fixed salary in return, works for multiple clients at his own terms and at a price he thinks his work deserves. (Usually more affordable than employing someone to do the task).
Freelancing is an enticing profession. It takes care of almost all the problems of a usual service-class human.
A freelancer is an individual who earns money on a per-job or per-task basis, usually for short-term work. A freelancer is not an employee of a firm and may therefore be at liberty to complete different jobs concurrently by various individuals or firms, unless contractually committed to work exclusively until a particular project is completed.
