Freelancing is hot right now.
I could not gather the data of 2018, but in 2017 (according to Forbes) – The number of U.S. freelancers hit 57.3 million this year, from 53 million in 2014—an 8.1 percent increase, according to the survey. That means 36% of the U.S. workforce has freelanced this year
That is definitely an indication of preferability and profitability. Isn’t it?
WHAT IS FREELANCE?
Freelancing is different from employment. The former provides services to multiple clients while the later works with only one employee and gets a salary.
Freelancers don’t get salary, they get paid per project, per word, per hour or on a retainer basis.
