Introduction to freelancing

People use the word “freelance” quite a lot these days, generally to refer to someone who doesn’t have a “real” job. But that’s hardly an accurate definition. But it’s important to have a firm understanding of what freelance really means today. Here’s a good definition:

A freelancer or freelance worker is a person who pursues a profession without a long-term commitment to any one employer.
This describes freelancing pretty well. The part about having no long-term commitment to one employer is easy to understand. It is quite different from being a full-time employee.

But how is all this relevant with being “Free” as it said in the subject line? Let me tell you how... Think of a person which you idealize and want to be like him/her... He/ she must be working in an organization in order to do so he/she should be following the rules of that organization.  So the day of an employ begins with worry to get to his workplace on time so he gets dress appropriately and gets going. Shows his efforts, creativity brings his imagination to his desk, as a result, he gets a regular paycheck and benefits. While in freelancing things which are common is working and get paid for it. So you must be thinking what’s different? “Everything “truly everything is different.  In freelancing, you work for different employers. You can choose which type of job you want to do and you can decide your working hours as well.

How does it work

It all starts when a client (Employer) posts a project on the marketplace with a short disruption and how much he is willing to pay for it. Freelancers from all over the world, who are willing to work on it bid on that project.
