Gone are the days when money spinning jobs were strictly limited in the hands of the desk bound individuals-each with a regular job boasting their resume. Freelance jobs are as profitable a bet today. You get the comfort of home, the freedom to work fairly at your own pace and laugh your way to the banks. Plus there are the additional perks of working in your pajamas, slouched in front of your laptop! Yes, there is that fear of the lack of steady work which might bother you. However, freelancing somehow fits in to the very idea of -dignity of labor–you are paid exactly what you have worked for!
The concept of freelancing is not new though! Since time immemorial, we have had actors, directors, singers, producers, construction laborers, freelance journalists working without fixed pay. Today we have individuals from more diverse works of life joining them.
Besides freelance writers, editors, data entry operators we have these dynamic hopefuls from management backgrounds, who are handling lucrative jobs such as event management. In fact the managerial skills combined with the urge to work independently have given birth to a number of freelance employers who are distributing outsourced jobs regularly among writers Social Media managers, editors and others to rake in the moolah!
Youngsters today are more than open to embracing this trend and are in no mood to be bogged down by fears of an unsteady workflow-since they are actually getting a chance to earn much more than their full time regular jobs, provided they are willing to sweat it out big time.
A casual internet search will lead you to lucrative portals dedicated to freelance jobs only. And that’s proof enough of the fact that these jobs are not viewed as -fluke- propositions rewarding you with good money only to elude you for the longer period of time. The only valid defense in this regard would be that since more and more people are embracing this trend of freelancing there are bound to be increased opportunities here. Though you can jolly well be prepared for more intense competition here, but that only serves to -sweeten- the whole deal
So, those of you all who are interested to steer clear of regular jobs, can jolly well take the step ahead. Just make sure that you are building on your networking skills via Social Media, good CV registered online etc.
Since Freelancing is taking new shape in internet era, it is not much difficult to find freelance employers and get freelance assignments.
