Freelancing opportunities ( source “Is Freelancing for you?” by Chris Wright on Web Designer Magazine)
In today’s economy, Freelancing is very relevant because long term job safety is becoming a thing of the past. Companies are taking advantage of freelance market to mitigate risks, but freelancing is also preferred by many individuals for the lifestyle it promotes. There are two ways to get in freelance market: directly, through CV and send it to people you want to work for, or through agencies. Sometimes can be useful to use a good recruitment agent. Another way is to use one of the many jobs boards on the web. Payment can vary hugely depending on the role, and contract length can be negotiated and agreed.
