What Does Freelancing Mean?
With the pandemic, our country is a third-world country which is now worse than it used to be pre-pandemic. Economics have poorly been hit around the globe as businesses had shut down for a while. And the poor and middle-class income families are one of those that have been badly affected. There are a lot of risks in continuing with our old lifestyle in our old ways. The pandemic has brought us all significant changes where we all needed to adapt to. It affected different areas of our lifestyle. This includes personal, health and fitness, social, and also our profession and working lifestyle.
The whole world stopped but needed to continue for us to survive. Somehow, we are lucky that we are in a digital age where we will be able to continue with some adjustments. With freelancing, you will realize its benefits especially if you are new to this industry. During this time of the pandemic, we will still be able to support our families while ensuring their health and safety.
So how have big companies and businesses view the world of freelancing or work-from-home setup?
“A survey of 161 CEOs by the Management Association of the Philippines (MAP) and PwC Philippines showed that 73 percent of respondents see their organization implementing a work-from-home policy even after COVID-19 pandemic eases. Bruce Rodriguez of ABS-CBN News”.
Freelancing is a work anywhere set up. You are offering your services to clients whether technical, creative, administrative, or professional.
It is working for a client based on your agreed schedule which you may opt to work full-time or part-time.
Why choose to work in this industry?
While this pandemic is a threat to many, this industry is growing with more companies including small and medium businesses alike, are going digital. Competition is also getting harder especially now that we have to consider that our health and safety should come first.
