Nowadays many professionals in different activity sector offers their services and expertise through freelance portals. These portals are websites were you can post job offerings and register as a freelance to take job offerings. In terms of business, you can bargain and get the work done at an affordable price with expert professionals.
So where is the catch ? Why doesn’t everyone go online and work as a freelancer ?
It’s quiet simple, before getting a Job online it can take quiet a while you must register to several websites either paid or non paid, then apply for job positions that fits your expertise, wait for an answer and if you are accepted start working. When working as a freelancer you are not bound by any long term contract many a time, you get to work on a module for 1 month and when the job is done, you simply have to get to the entire process again, which can sometimes take several weeks before you get another job. So being a freelance is a tedious and long process, but it is quiet a remunerative process, since you get to work on different project and gain much more experience.
