Who is a freelancer?

"Freelance" - a word that came to us from the English language. It means work and cooperation without a formal contract.

Freelancer - who is it? This person is a freelance worker, the employer does not enter into a long-term labor contract with him, but most often the work is generally carried out without guarantees, at his own risk and peril. Of course, experienced freelancers and their employers have their own ways of encouraging an employee and receiving guarantees. For example, at first only such a part of the finished work is issued, which has no value by itself, but indicates that the task has been completed. After that, the employer pays remittances by money transfer or by transferring to the accounts of various payment systems. And after that the freelancer gives the finished job completely.

Freelancers work almost always remotely, and communication takes place via e-mail, Skype or other means of the Internet.Since the freelancer is independent, he can work with several employers at once. Most often, the workplace of a freelancer is located right in his home, in front of a computer. Rarely when payment depends on the time spent at the workplace, most often the remuneration depends on the units of work done.

Freelance services in the areas of translation, journalism, programming, all types of design and in some other areas are most common. Currently, the market for freelance services has reached its peak in Europe and America, and in Russia is steadily gaining momentum. Thanks to the Internet, borders are erased, allowing employers to find a good specialist from anywhere in the world. Now you understand who a freelancer.
