You must be wondering why to go to offices at all if you can make that much money at home. A lot of people are now resorting to finding online freelancing jobs for themselves. Several websites now support such job hunting activities and are working as intermediaries to bring together employers and employees. These platforms are now also offering value added services to attract customers and are making quite a fortune just supporting freelancing as an intermediary.

I’m assuming you’re already familiar with the term freelancing. If not, here’s a quick introduction.

Freelancing means “doing your job without being permanently employed mostly on hourly rates rather than the monthly payments”. These jobs are based on daily tasks which pay you by the hour or daily rate. Traditionally freelancing was only used for jobs that took place offline. However with the recent bloom of internet, freelancing has taken a whole new path for future. People are now freelancing over the internet using their PDA’s, phones, tablets and laptops anywhere they go. You are no longer bound by your place or work or work timings. You can sign up for flexible jobs or projects and you don’t need to stick to one employer. You can have multiple employers and multiple jobs at a time which makes it more fun for you.

A few things you need to keep in mind before you set your career path as a freelancer:

  • It may seem easy to work from your home but requires serious dedication and timeliness. You need to strictly follow your deadlines because if the word goes out that you’re a sloppy and lazy employee, your career as a freelancer is probably over.
  • Always make sure your employer is reliable and genuine. Internet is full of predators trying to use your effort and skills for free. Look for ratings and references, and try to sign up with reliable freelance portals.
  • Contrary to the common belief, freelance money doesn’t come the easy way. It drains you of your time and intellectual skills so make sure you get your money. Always settle these matters before hand.
