Freelancing! Even two years ago, it was not something that you expected your 12 year old niece to know about or identify with. But the winds of change are roaring across the Indian subcontinent. Right now there are more than 10 million bona fide freelancers in the country and more than 32% of them are availing of this wonderful lifestyle full time. And why not? As a freelancer, you are your own boss! I as a Mobilizer and recruiter for a large freelancing portal need to literally stand on the side of the road and solicit talent. Hey people! There are way too many jobs that need doing and not enough good talented heads to get them done!! So you can imagine that I need to interact with potential freelancers almost every day. Many of them keep parroting the question, “What will I get out of it?”
The short answer is “Everything! From independence to a sense of achievement to a healthier lifestyle to a chance to pursue your passion.”
